2004 Audi TT

I can confirm that the Curt 11765 fits the 2004 Audi TT Quattro convertible. Installation was straightforward although you do need to take the muffler and exhaust pipe off their rubber hangers for sufficient clearance. Also, the instructions should be clarified to state that the tow hook bracket must be removed in order to install the passenger side of the hitch. You cannot install it on top of the bracket.

Drilling holes on the left side required removal of two inches or so of the heat shield for clearance. Not an issue since the part removed was about a half inch wide and did not serve to deflect heat in any meaningful way.

The hitch is just barely visible and really only if you’re looking for it (product description does say it’s exposed). It helps a lot to remove the Curt and etrailer stickers to make the hitch even stealthier. The receiver bottom is about 7 inches from the ground (see pics). Hitch comes with an anti-shake bolt, which helps a lot. But I installed a anti-shake hitch clamp to eliminate virtually all shaking and rattling.

Still going strong, highly recommend this for a mk1 TT

Pontiac Trans Sport Van

I can't say enough about the great service I received from etrailer in purchasing two 1 1/4 trailer hitches for my Volvo C70 and Audi TT. I was able to purchase CURT trailer hitches customized for both vehicles. This enables me to use a Thule hitch mounted bike rack to transport my bikes with either of my two convertibles. eTrailer offered the best price and best selection. Thanks etrailer! (Pictures of the two hitches installed and with my Thule rack in place are attached.)


I wasn't expecting to drill holes but it wasn't too bad it went on as the directions said


I found everything very easy to assemble, Every thing was there to include instructions.

2001 Audi TT

Quick Delivery

Hitch is still working great, I use it on my Audi TT convertible roadster to attach a bike rack so that I can take a wheel chair on road trips with me and my wife. I have had several positive comments from people who were amazed I could take a wheel chair on such a little car.

  • Trailer Hitch Fit Recommendation for 2001 Audi TT Roadster Quattro
    Yes, we had a customer come back and let us know that the Curt hitch part # C11765 is a fit for the Roadster Quattro models of the 2001 Audi TT like you have.

  • Is There a Difference Between the Curt Hitch # C11765 for 2000 Audi TT Quattro and a 2000 Audi TT?
    The term "Quattro" is used in Audi models that have 4-wheel drive. I confirmed with my contact at Curt that the Curt # C11765 will fit all 2000 Audi TT models (which are all Quattros).

  • Bike Transportation Options For the 2001 Audi TT Non-Quattro
    While there are bike rack alternatives for your 2001 Audi TT , I cannot recommend installing the # C11765 with modifications. The lack of demand for a hitch for your particular model is the most likely reason why Curt and other manufacturers have not made a hitch that will fit. I recommend the Hollywood Racks Over-The-Top Trunk Mount Bike Rack # HRF6-2 as a solution for your bike rack needs. It is a confirmed fit for your 01 Audi. The rack has a weight capacity of 35 lbs per bike with...

  • Can the Curt Hitch # C11765 Be Used to Mount a Bike Rack on a 2000 Audi TT?
    Yes, the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class I - 1-1/4" # C11765 will fit 2000 Audi TT Quatro models. The hitch comes with all installation hardware for a bolt-on installation. If you need a suggestion for a great bike rack that fits 1-1/4 inch hitches, I recommend the Curt 2 Bike Rack for 1-1/4" and 2" Hitches - Tilting # C18029. The Curt 2 is a great economical bike rack that can carry up to 2 bikes with a total weight capacity of 90 pounds. If you want extra security to...

  • Does the Curt Class I Trailer Hitch # 11765 Require Bolting to the Exterior of the Audi TT
    The Curt Class I Trailer Hitch, item # 11765, does not require bolting or attaching anything to the exterior, visible portion of the vehicle. There are 5 bolts that secure the hitch, under the vehicle to the driver and passenger side frame rails. We have the trailer hitch installation instructions (see link) online for you to review. Some items you may need to complete your Class I towing setup are listed below. Hitch Ball 1-7/8 inch, item # 19256 Hitch Ball 2 inch, item # 19258 Hitch...

  • What is the Ground Clearance with Curt Trailer Hitch, # 11765 Installed on a 2004 Audi TT Quattro
    I spoke with my contact at Curt about trailer hitch # 11765. He stated that when the hitch is installed the receiver tube, which will be the lowest point, will be about 1-3/4 inches to 2 inches below the bottom of the rear fascia. What you can do is park your 2004 Audi TT on level ground and measure up from the ground to a point that is about 2 inches below the rear fascia and that is where the bottom of the receiver will be. I have included a link to the installation details for this hitch...

  • Is There a Trailer Hitch Available for 2004 Audi TT
    We have a hitch for the Quattro models of the 2004 Audi TT. For that you'd want the part # C11765. This has a towing capacity of 2,000 lbs which should easily tow a small trailer with your bike you mentioned but you need to verify that your vehicle has the needed towing capacity in the owners manual. For trailer wiring you'd then want the pat # 119250KIT. For a ball mount you'd then want the part # C45510, and hitch ball part # C40001 for a 1-7/8 inch ball. We are near St. Louis, MO.

  • Ball Mount For Curt Trailer Hitch C11785 on 2001 Audi TT Quattro
    The Curt hitch for your 2001 Audi TT does require a specific ball mount (which has a curved design) to tow with, and we do have that available, as well as the hitch and trailer wiring for your vehicle. So, exactly what you need to tow with your Audi is the following: - Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C11765 - Curt Class II Drawbar # C45510 - 2" Hitch Ball # C40018 or 1-7/8" Hitch Ball # C40001 - Pin & Clip # PC2 - Hopkins Tail Light Converter Kit with 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector #...

  • Availability of 2 Bike Rack for 2002 Mercedes E320 Wagon and 2002 Audi TT
    The 2002 Audi TT will not be able to use a trunk mounted bike rack. This vehicle does not have a safe place where the lower straps can be mounted. If your Audi TT is a Quattro (all-wheel drive) you can use a hitch like the Curt Class I Hitch, part # 11765, and a bike rack like the Swagman Trailhead 2 Bike Rack, part # S63360. The Curt hitch will only fit the Quattro version, it will not fit the front wheel drive version of the Audi TT. I am including links to the installation instrutcions...
