2009 Cadillac SRX

I was able to install this by myself on a Cadillac 2009 SRX.

1. If you use straps to hold up the mufflers try not to use the hole on the outside of the frame. They may not come out due to the hitch once being installed it is in the way.

2. Use jack stands to hold the hitch up. Then you can do the final life by hand and start the bolts.

3. Clean out the bolt hole before you try to lift the hitch into place. I used an old style battery terminal cleaner tool. I also bought a bolt and cut four grooves in it to clean out the threads in the frame. Got the idea from this site.

Once installed the hitch blends into the black car and looks good.


I was told it would take a week to deliver, it was delivered in 4 days. Excellent service from etrailer. The product fit perfectly, no problems whatsoever. Will do business with etrailer again and again.

2008 Cadillac SRX

My husband & son installed this hitch on our '08 Cadillac SRX. I was told that the instructions were very good & that the installation went smoothly. Took these 2 car guys about 2 hours & that it was very straight forward. No extra trips to the store... They only had to cut a couple of things that were supposed to be cut according to the directions. No other modifications needed. Hubby says the rear end is now wonderfully tight. Appearance of the hitch is handsome. It all bolted in & they were very pleased with the quality of the product. Top notch. etrailer's service is outstanding & the expedited delivery was well worth the extra couple of dollars for our purposes.

2007 Cadillac SRX

Fit perfectly and the shipping time was excellent. Saved time and money by shopping with etrailer. Trust me, I definitely researched the prices. Definitely going to be a returning customer.

2009 Cadillac SRX

Put it on my 2009 Caddy SRX and it fit perfect. The 2004-2009 SRXs are a tricky fit, the exhaust has to be lowered and the hitch slid in so thank goodness that all the bolt holes in the hitch lined up perfectly with the factory drilled and threaded holes in the frame.

2006 Cadillac SRX

Hitch fit good.I like the fasteners and instructions came with it. I should have paid more attention to how far past the bumper it sticks out. Not a fan of bruised legs!


We love our new hitch! Thanks

2006 Cadillac SRX

I installed this by myself laying on my back with the car (2006 Cadillac SRX) up on wheel ramps. It was easy. But, I spent most of the time cleaning out the weld nuts which were very rusty and dirty. Be sure to thoroughly clean the weld nuts this because it will make the bolts screw in much easier especially if you are trying to hold up the hitch at the same time. The online installation video really helped. Very well built quality product and HEAVY. Shipping was fast. Very satisfied.


This hitch was ordered for a customer to hook her bike rack to
it arrived in a timely manner from your company and the fit was very good I had no problems with exhaust rattle and the hardware kit had all the parts to install it
The job looked neat when finished and my customer was happy with the work and how it looked


I am overwhelmed at E-trailers fast shipping and great customer service i highly recommend them.
Thank you so much

2007 Cadillac SRX

Hitch fits and looks good. However, the metric bolts provided with the hitch did not fit the vehicle. It needed SAE bolts instead. Had to make trip to the hardware store. eTrailer had incredibly fast free shipping. Very satisfied with their service.

2008 Cadillac SRX

Product is well built and bolts up as mentioned. Note: On the 2008 Cadillac SRX, the lower muffler bolt taps out with a hammer. No cutting lower bolt is required, so removing the entire muffler bracket is not required which saved about 20 minutes on the installation.
Customer service was excellent, and the shipping turn around time was great also. Will order again from etrailer!!!!


Product arrived ahead of schedule thanks to the shipping upgrade I received which was greatly appreciated. Installation took a little longer than the instructions said but I'm 63 so everything takes a little longer than it used to plus I was laying on my back most of the time and kept falling asleep. Instructions were accurate and easy to follow. My only complaint was that the receiver once mounted extends out past the rear bumper a little and it could be a shin knocker. Other than that it looks good. No pictures available at this time.


The shipping was very fast and the product looks great. I have not had time to install but after watching the video the installation looks straight forward. Warmer weather will be here soon and using the trailer hitch for our bike rack will make bike riding fun.


Easy fit, did it in flip flops and shorts on my garage floor

2005 Cadillac SRX

The hitch is well built and fit perfectly. The installation was easy and completed in just a few hours. After using it for a year there have been no problems. I'm completely satisfied. Another great product from etrailer !

2008 Cadillac SRX

This worked like a charm on my 2008 SRX, but I would highly recommend getting a M12x1.75 tap to clean out the threads. The brush alone still makes it hard. After I used the tap to clean the threads I was able to just use my fingers to get the bolts in to the point I used a pneumatic ratchet just to tighten down to 60 psi.

2004 Cadillac SRX

I had access to a lift which made the installation a lot easier. A friend and I put it on my 2004 Caddy SRX in an afternoon with very little problem. The instructions were very good and was a stress free process. Thank you


Product was as advertised. Detailed installation instructions included, would purchase from them again.

2004 Cadillac SRX

Speedy service and it installed like the video said. This is my third trailer hitch and everyone was the same.


A very good product at a very good price. Install was easy once weldnuts were tapped to clean out. Hitch cover is cheap and a sloppy fit.


My Hitch Arrived Within A Couple Days I Haven't Had Enough Time To Get it out Of The Box !!!!


Yeah...why have I ever paid anyone to install one of these for me? This was not at all complicated. Part came as promised, got it installed faster than I thought I would and the video was super useful.


Perfect fit, all hardware needed was included. Although difficulty rating was a 10 for my application, the available videos walked me right through the installation.


Installed by myself,no problems at 74. Just have a couple blocks for support.

  • Will Curt Trailer Hitch C13050 Fit a Cadillac SRX with Sport Package Fascia
    I checked with my contact at Curt, and he confirmed that yes, the # C13050 trailer hitch will work on all V8 and V6 SRX models from 2004 through 2009, including those with sport fascia. You can view the installation instructions at the link below, if needed.

  • Recommended 2-Inch Trailer Hitch for 2009 Cadillac SRX
    The 2009 and 2011 model years of the Cadillac SRX are not within the same generation and so their hitch fits are not the same. The 04-09 model years were the first generation, while 2010 and later model years are within the second generation. Links to hitches for both cars are included. You'll note that both 1-1/4-inch Class II and 2-inch Class III hitches are available for both cars. In general we recommend going with the 2-inch option because it will have a higher towing capacity, more...

  • Can Replacement Hardware 2008 Cadillac SRX Hitch be Ordered
    We do sell replacement hardware kits for the trailer hitches we offer like the Curt # C13050 which is a fit for your 2008 Cadillac SRX Sport model. For that you would want the part # RHK. On the product page you would need to enter the part number C13050 and select Curt as the hitch manufacturer. I would strongly recommend you use the hitch part number that you have and not just the Curt number if you have something different. The size bolts that come with it are M12-1.75 x 40mm.

  • What is the Difference Between Curt C13050 and Draw-Tite 75174 for a 2007 Cadillac SRX
    The Curt # C13050 and Draw-Tite # 75174 are very similar in design. The Draw-Tite model isn't listed as a fit for Sport Package equipped models, but the Curt hitch is a fit. If your SRX isn't the Sport model, that won't be a consideration and you could choose either htich. Both hitches have the same capacity and would install in a similar manner. The crosstube and recevier tube of either hitch will be visible under the rear bumper. If you'll be towing with the hitch, you might need the...

  • Will CURT Trailer Hitch # C13050 Fit a 2008 Cadillac SRX with Sports Package
    According to our contacts at CURT, trailer hitch # C13050, will fit on the 2008 Cadillac SRX if it has the Sports Package. None of the other hitches we carry are designed to work with the fascia that comes on the sports package models. I have included a link to the installation details for you to view. There is no template available for trimming the fascia. The spare tire will need to just be lowered to install the hitch and raised again after installation. The hitch should not interfere...

  • Correct Ball Mount for Class III CURT Trailer Hitch for 2004 Cadillac SRX to Eliminate Rattle
    A Class III trailer hitch, like the CURT Hitch, # C13050, for the 2004 Cadillac SRX, does not require a specific ball mount. The one we recommend is # 2923. However, you will want to choose a ball mount based on the rise or drop you need to tow the trailer level. I have included a link to an FAQ article that shows you how to choose the correct ball mount. If you find that even a different ball mount has too much rattle, you can add an anti-rattle device. I recommend the Roadmaster Quiet...

  • Recommended Equipment to Tow With a 2007 Cadillac SRX
    The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C13050, which is a confirmed fit for your 2007 Cadillac SRX, is a great option for a receiver. To get your Cadillac SRX ready to tow you will also need wiring, a ball mount, and a hitch ball. For a ball mount and hitch ball I recommend going with our Ball Mount Kit # 989900 which comes with 2 ball mounts, a pin and clip, and 1-7/8 inch and 2 inch hitch balls. You will want to measure to make sure that the ball mounts give you the correct Rise or Drop....

  • Trailer Hitch for Hollywood Racks Bike Carrier on a 2006 Cadillac SRX
    First, hitch extender # HE06 is not a hitch, just an extension. It would fit in a 2 inch trailer hitch receiver if your 2006 Cadillac SRX already had one. It is designed to provide an additional 7 inches of clearance from the center of the hitch pin hole. For a 2 inch trailer hitch for your SRX the most popular option is # C13050. I have linked a video showing how it installs. With the hitch installed the distance from the center of the hitch pin hole back to clear the rear bumper will...

  • Does Spare Tire of 2008 Cadillac SRX Need to Be Removed During Hitch Installation
    In the installation process of the Curt Class III # C13050 hitch, the spare tire is temporarily removed because the heat shield and exhaust brackets need to be modified as shown in the installation instructions and the install video I've linked for you. When the installation is complete, the spare tire is returned to its original position. If you'll be using the hitch for towing purposes, you'll also need the following: Trailer wiring harness, part # C59236 Ball mount, part # C45030 1-7/8...

  • Recommended Wiring Harness and Other Parts to Tow a Trailer with a 2004 Cadillac SRX
    The wiring harness I recommend for your 2004 Cadillac SRX is the Curt # 56146KIT. There isn't a plug and play connector on your Cadillac but this harness will hardwire into the vehicle. The installation details are attached and I've attached an install video as well. If you don't already have a trailer hitch installed I recommend the Curt # C13050. It's custom designed for your SRX and will give you a 2 inch receiver opening. This install video is also attached. You'll also need a...

  • Class III Hitch & Weight Distribution System for 2005 Cadillac SRX Towing 5000-lb Travel Trailer
    Both the Curt # C13050 and Draw-Tite # 75174 Class III round tube hitches for your 2005 Cadillac SRX share identical capacities and installation steps so between them I'd go for the Curt since it costs a bit less. The phrase 'max frame' is marketing terminology and does not denote any special feature or capability. Hitches with round versus square cross tubes are sometimes considered to have more eye appeal on passenger cars, but this is purely a cosmetic matter. When used with a weight...
