Trailer Wiring Harness Installation - 2005 Honda Pilot
Today on our 2005 Honda Pilot we'll be installing the Tow Ready T1 Vehicle Wiring Harness with 4-pole Flat Trailer Connector, part number 118336. To being our install we'll first go ahead and open up the rear hatch. Then the rear storage compartment door and we'll remove the door and set it aside. Next we'll need to remove the rear threshold. To remove the rear threshold we simply need to get underneath of it and free the fasteners underneath using a flat blade screw driver. I'll get underneath the threshold and start working the fasteners to release them. When we remove the threshold and turn it over we can see the snap fasteners that secure it. Between the back edge of the storage compartment and the front edge of the sheet metal if we push forward we can locate the wiring connector.
Trailer Hitch Installation - 2005 Honda Pilot
Today we are installing part number 13328, a hitch made by Curt, and it will be going on a 2005 Honda Pilot. Okay, we are underneath the vehicle now. And the first thing you want to do is remove your spare tire, and get it out of the way. Locating the attachment points, right here on the back side of the bumper there are two weld nuts that attach to the flange on the hitch itself. And then we go over here to the drivers side of the frame rail, there is just a tow hook that needs to be removed. There are three bolts holding it on. And those three weld nuts in the frame will be the attachment points for the hitch, as well. And then on the passengers side frame rail, there is not actually a tie-down, there are just the existing weld nuts. On older vehicles, over time corrosion will build up into these weld nuts, so you want to go ahead and clean those out really well before you get started. You can use any kind of spray lubricant, like WD-40, and a wire brush to get the threads cleaned out.
