And then we will come back down here, and we will put the hitch up over the passengers side and then drill our holes. Over here on the drivers side, before we get going I am going to go ahead and lower the exhaust down to gain more room to drill my holes in the side of the trunk well. You can see we have got one large hanger here. We just need to take this stud off of the rubber portion. To do this, I am going to use a little spray lubricant, like a WD-40.

Volkswagen Jetta Trailer Hitch Questions and Answers


  • Recommended Hitch for 2016 Volkswagen Jetta 1.8T TSI
  • Although it would most likely fit because there haven't been any huge changes in the vehicle between the 2015 and 2016 model year, Curt hasn't yet confirmed that the # C11072 fits the 2016 Jetta, so I can't recommend that hitch. I'd recommend using the Draw-Tite # 24926 which IS a confirmed fit for the 2016 Jetta TSI. You'll want to consult your owner's manual to determine the actual towing capacity of the vehicle, you'll want to abide by the 2000 lb towing capacity of the hitch or the...

  • Class I, 1-1/4 Inch Trailer Hitch Mount Bike Rack Recommendation for a Volkswagen Jetta Sportwagen
  • All of the available trailer hitches for the 2009 to 2011 VW Jetta SportWagen are 1-1/4 inch hitches. We do offer numerous hitch mounted bike racks that are compatible with the 1-1/4 inch, Class I hitches. However, with a Class I trailer hitch installed, you will be limited to carrying only 2 bikes as the Class I trailer hitches are not designed to withstand the amount of weight and torque associated with carrying more than 2 bikes. For a 1-1/4, Class I trailer hitch, I recommend the...

  • Trailer Hitch, Trailer Wiring Harness and Recommended Accessories for 2011 VW Jetta TDI

  • Hitch Comparison and Recommendation for a 2011 Volkswagen Jetta
  • For bike rack use I would recommend the Draw-Tite part # 24866. The Curt hitch would require you to use a stabilizer strap like part # 18050 otherwise the warranty would be voided so the Draw-Tite wins in my opinion. As long as you stay under the 200 lb tongue weight capacity and don't try to carry more than 2 bikes this hitch would work well for you regardless of the attachment differences between it and the Curt. For trailer wiring you would want the # 118572, 1-7/8 inch hitch...

  • Trailer Hitch and Wiring Recommendations for a 2010 Volkswagen Jetta TDI
  • Out of all of the hitches available for a 2010 Volkswagen Jetta, I would go with the Curt hitch # 11072. It is going to offer approximately 9 inches of ground clearance from the bottom of the receiver to the ground. The round tube design generally looks better on vehicles, and you can see it in the video I have linked. All of the hitches install in basically the same way and have the same capacities so any of them would be safe and secure for towing a trailer up to 2,000 pounds. The...

  • Available Hitches for 2010 Jetta TDI
  • The only hitches available for your 2010 VW Jetta TDI are Class 1 rated with a 1-1/4 inch by 1-1/4 inch receiver opening. Draw-Tite and Curt offer a Class I hitch. If you're needing the hitch only as an attachment point for a bike rack or other hitch mounted accessory, I'd recommend the Draw-Tite. The Curt # C11072 is a bit less expensive, but their warranty requirements state that a stabilizing strap like part # 18050 must be used for non-trailer loads. Not all vehicles are compatible...

My information shows that there was not a Sportwagen model produced for the U.S. in model years 2006, 2007 and 2008. At this time we have not had the opportunity to install a Draw-Tite on the 2006 Jetta sedan, but we have had the opportunity to install the Curt Mfg. hitch on the 2006 Jetta and the video we did should help you with installation...

  • Ground Clearance on Available Trailer Hitches for a 2006 Volkswagen Jetta
  • On all of the available trailer hitches for the 2006 Volkswagen Jetta, the receiver and cross tubing will be fairly low. This is because of the attachment point placement on the VW frame. By design, the hitches have to be that low. On all the models, the top of the receiver tube will be just below the rear fascia. We have several videos you can view (linked below) on the Draw-Tite, Valley, and Hidden Hitch models that show the hitches installed to give you a better idea of the kind...

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for a 2004 Volkswagen Jetta GLS
  • The reason the Curt Hitch part # C11070 that you referenced won't fit a GLI is because the GLI models have OEM ground effects.

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation For Carrying Bike Rack on 2003 VW Jetta
  • Due to the size of the vehicle and the strength of the vehicle chassis where the hitch attaches, the only hitches available for the Jetta is a Class I that uses the 1-1/4 inch receiver opening. A Class I hitch with its 200 lb tongue weight capacity will be plenty strong for a bike rack as long as the weight of the rack and the bikes placed upon it doesn't exceed the 200 lb tongue weight capacity of the hitch. 2 inch hitches have a much higher weight capacity, high enough to damage the vehicle....

  • Option for Carrying 4 Bikes with a 2003 Volkswagen Jetta

To carry all 4 of your bikes in the most economical way you would want to do a trunk mounted rack that would allow you to carry 3 bikes, and then a roof rack and bike rack to carry the 4th. For a trunk rack I would recommend the Thule Raceway 3 bike rack part # TH9002PRO. What...
