Video Transcript for Trailer Hitch Installation - 2011 Cadillac SRX - Curt

Today on our 2011 Cadillac SRX well be installing the Curt hitch, part number C13002. This is what our hitch will look like when its in place. Next well go ahead and give you a couple measurements to assist you with selecting accessories for your new hitch, such as a drawl bar, a bike rack or cargo carrier. From the center of the hitch pin hole to the outer most edge of the bumper is three and three quarter inches. From the top of the receiver tube opening to the ground will be 18 inches. Now lets go ahead with the installation.

First well need to remove the rear fascia panel. To do this well remove the two screws securing it into position. Go ahead and swing it down and release the plastic fasteners. Next well need to remove the rear fascia brackets. There are two, one on the drivers and one on the passengers side.

Each one is secured with three fasteners, two plastic push pin and one nut. To remove the plastic push pins well pry out on the center section and then remove the entire fastener. With both removed here on the drivers side well then go ahead and remove the nut and then the bracket, setting all the hardware and bracket aside as it will be reinstalled later. Now well go ahead and repeat the same process on the passengers side. Next well go ahead and identify the attachment points.

There are a total of six attachment points, two on the inside of each frame rail, driver and passengers side, and two on the cross member or bumper beam. Each one of these attachment points are weld nuts built into the structure of the vehicle by the manufacturer. Before we attempt to install the hitch well first clean out the threads of the weld nuts to make sure theyll go nice and easily. To clean out the weld nut well go ahead and spray each one with some spray lubricant and then use a half inch nylon tube brush, part number 814092 to thoroughly clean the threads. Quick tech tip, I recommend you take one of the new 12 mm bolts and threat it into the weld nut to make sure it will go nice and easily.

Now that weve got each one cleaned out were ready to go ahead and install the hitch. Its a good idea to get an extra set of hands to help you hold the hitch while you install the fasteners. Well be securing the hitch with a new 12 mm bolt and half inch conical tooth washer, with the teeth of the washer facing the hitch. Well put the hitch up into position, being careful to avoid the manufacturers wiring on the inside of the drivers side frame rail. Once we have all the fasteners in position finger tight well go ahead and run them down. Next well go ahead and torque to specifications as indicated in the instructions. Now with the hitch secured and torqued to specifications we can go ahead and reinstall the fascia brackets. That completes the install of our Curt hitch, part number C13002 on our 2011 Cadillac SRX.

Installation instructions were very explicit and installation was completed in less than two hours by two men. Hitch is well made. etrailer decal affixed to the hitch was installed up-side-down so the the name was not readable from the back of the car.. 474979

Hitch put on the car in anticipation of tow and bike carrier use, but have not used it for either purpose yet.

I installed the hitch today and it did take a little longer than expected. This was due to the fact that three of the holes did not line up as expected and it required using a jack and pry bar to get them located properly. (one on each side and one in the middle) The holes were off by a maximum of 1/8 inch but it did make the installation more difficult than necessary. 573604


Comments

The mounting flanges of the hitch are constructed of a mild steel that has a little bit of give to it. This allows the hitch to flex along with the vehicle to a small degree, and also allows the mounting flanges to be gently manipulated back into place if they should become misaligned during shipping and handling. Ill link to a help article that explains a few methods of moving the mounting flanges back into position.

I needed a trailer hitch to pull a fishing boat with my Cadillac SRX. I priced the local dealers in my neighborhood and found them to be too expensive. I looked online and decided after reviewing several videos that I could install the hitch and wiring harness myself and save a considerable amount of money. The hitch arrived and I immediately began the install. Both the hitch and wiring harness were of the highest quality and fit my car perfectly. I was completely done with the install in about an hour. I am a regular retired guy with basic tools. Definitely would recommend these products to my friends. 566791

The hitch went on very easy. I looked at all of the other options and the CURT looked like it would fit the best. I notched out the cover and it looks real good on the car. 2012 Cadillac SRX Check ot the picture. 69978


Comments

RobertI saw your photo of your SRX on the eTrailer website.Can you further explain how you notched out the cover on your SRX for the hitch as am going to do the same on my 2013 SRX and would appreciate any advice.i.e. Did you cut the cover into a left and right piece or were you able to just notch out a piece in the center, and any suggestions on type tool you used to notch it.Then how are you able to reattach the cover with the hitch now in the way?thnxGeorge

I used a small cutoff rotary Tool to notch out the cover. It took a couple of tries to get the right fit. It takes some effort to get the ball in the hitch. You can cut more of the cover to make it less of a pain to get the ball in. The less you cut the better it looks. Bob

Perfect fit and easy install. I purchased my receiver and light harness and received them faster than advertised. Products came with great instructions and the online videos made the install a snap. I recommend the Curt hitch and recommend ordering from etrailer.com. Customer service was outstanding. When I put my hitch on my SRX, the trim piece wouldn't fit back on (which I knew before ordering by watching the videos online). It was not difficult to cut out a hole in the facia for the hitch to stick through. I used a box cutter/ utility knife to carefully cut out the hole. I started by making the hole smaller than I thought I needed, then slowly cut away the plastic until I got a good fit. 325998

Great quality product. The installation was fast and the instructions easy to follow. The powder coat finish was flawless and I was impressed how every bolt hole aligned to its match on the frame. Although the directions tell you to leave the original plastic trim cover off, I was able to modify it to make the install more custom. Very happy with this hitch. 162720

Chino,I used a jig saw with a fine blade. I used blue tape to protect the plastic and to give me an easier surface to make the cutout lines on. Drilled a 3/8 hole at both inner corners of the U and then cut between them. Finished up with a fine file. Try it, its not that hard. Good luck.

How did you get hitch pin in? It appears that not enough side room to side pin in or do you remove cover each time you hook up trailer?Thanks,Larry

this hitch fits on a caddy srx here is the issue the receiver rect bar is way too short. the locking pin drilled holes are so close to the main cross bar you can't even use a proper keyed locking pin to hold in the hitch ball assy. you have to use a plain hitch pin and use a pair of pliers to pull it out to remove the hitch ball and bar. you can't lock the trailer hitch ball and bar onto the car. the mfg. tried to save 2 bux on the receiver metal and cut it 2 inches too short a total pain is the ass. i swear at it every time i have to use it. don't buy this hitch 671199


Comments

The amount of difficulty experienced when getting the hitch pin or lock in and out will depend on how the hitch was installed. Some folks want to retain the removable panel in the rear fascia, and trim it as close as possible to the receiver tube so most of it remains in place. If you completely remove the removable portion of the fascia, youll find it much easier to use a hitch pin or lock.

Product was shipped quickly. It is made of heavy-duty steel, and fit perfectly onto my SRX. I have hauled trailers as as Alabama from Texas, and it is still going strong. Highly recommend this receiver hitch for the Cadillac SRX. Was able to follow some online examples of how to cut out the rear bumper cover so that all you can see from the rear is the 2" receiver slot. Looks great! Semper Fi! 597742

I purchased this trailer hitch for my 2016 Cadillac SRX. It arrived in a box that had a rough ride to my home. The trailer hitch was secured in the box and all the hardware and instructions stowed in the square tubing securely. I installed the hitch. All went very well thanks to the video etrailer provides and the installation instructions. The trailer hitch is built very well and looks really good on the back of my caddy. etrailer is the best to deal with! 592900

Wow .... just .. WOW ! In this day and age of mediocre service what a pleasant surprise etrailer.com has been. We were in a serious time crunch to get a hitch for our new car. We were buying the car Tuesday night and need to pick up a trailer on Thursday. I was on the phone with the rep Monday afternoon - she walked me through which hitch and wiring kit I needed and assured me that we would get everything on time ..... BAM ! Hitch and wiring were delivered Tuesday afternoon . Thank you etrailer.com for understanding and living the definition of GREAT Customer Service !!!

I purchased my custom fit trailer hitch from etrailer.com for my 2014 Cadillac SRX. I was very impressed with the quality of the hitch, how it fit perfectly on my car and I felt the price was very reasonable as well. It took me less than an hour to install and I am VERY happy with the end results. I would highly recommend etrailer.com to anyone needing a new hitch for their vehicle. 556918

I rarely leave reviews, but felt compelled to do this one. The product, while simple( its a Curt trailer hitch)was excellently packaged and went on faster than I ever imagined. In fact, it took me longer to find my 19mm socket than it took me to put it on. The instructions were clear and included pictures. Very well made, very well packaged. Excellent experience overall. I would use this retailer again. 556515

Delivery was timely. Product quality is outstanding with one minor exception that cost me 2 hours of installation time. The right bumper mount flange is 1-2 mm off center making it impossible to line up all six bolt holes. As a result I am left with a 5 bolt installation. 553143


Comments

The mounting flanges on a trailer receiver hitch are designed for fore/aft strength, not lateral or side to side strength. The lateral strength occurs once the hitch is attached to the vehicle. The flanges are actually designed to have some give in them so that theyll flex along with the vehicle as its moving. If they get flexed during shipping, they can and should be moved back into place. As long as the powder coat didnt crack and there arent any cracks in the mounting flange itself, the hitch will work just fine after being moved back into place. Ill link you to a help article that shows a few different methods of manipulating the hitch back into place.

The hitch was installed easily and seems strong. It has one flaw i cant figure out. The receiver holes for the latch pin are so close to the hitch i cant find a locking pin that will go there because the heads on the end actually hit the hitch itself, so i can only use the standard unlockable pin. This leaves my ball mount unsecured against theft. The hole should have been drilled about a half inch further out. 547188


Comments

There is limited clearance between the brackets that go into the bumper support on the hitch and the hitch pin hole. This hitch will not accept locks with wide lock cylinders or barrel locks. We do have a hitch lock that is narrow on the end, Part # BD580400

Do you have a question about this Trailer Hitch?


  • Installation of Curt Hitch C13002 on 2011 Cadillac SRX
  • Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C13002 will install on the 2011 Cadillac SRX such that the end of the receiver tube will extend out past the location of the OEM knock-out panel. This is why that panel must be notched. If you refer to the linked image taken from our install video you'll see the receiver tube position relative to this panel.

  • The receiver tube portion of the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C13002 will extend out past the rear bumper fascia on the 2015 Cadillac SRX so the center knockout panel cannot be reused unless modified. This will be the case for all aftermarket trailer hitches available for your vehicle.

This plugs directly into the connection and provides you with a 4-way trailer connector that will hang under the Cadillac's rear bumper.

Whatever the difference is between that number and the height from the ground to the top of hitch opening on your vehicle is the amount of rise/drop that you need. I attached a help article that covers this as well down below.

  • Recommendation for Truck Mounted Rack on a 2011 Cadillac SRX
  • The neat thing about the Hollywood Trunk Mounted Bike Racks are that the Over-The-Top uses top support arms and contact points to route the straps over the spoiler, so there is no downward force specifically on the spoiler. This setup is necessary if the spoiler is plastic because it can become deformed or damaged under the extra weight. Their Over-The-Top model is available in a 2 bike version as part # HRF2 or as a 3 bike version, part # HRF2-3. Another option would be to install...

  • Will Adding a Higher Rated Trailer Hitch to a 2010 Cadillac SRX Increase Its Towing Capacity
  • Trailer hitch receivers, such as the Curt # C13002 that fits your 2010 Cadillac SRX, are often overrated compared to the vehicles they're designed to fit. Unfortunately, adding a higher rated hitch does not increase the towing capacity of your vehicle, you're always limited by the lowest rated component of a towing set up which is often the vehicle itself. So if you've found that your Cadillac has a maximum towing capacity of 2,500 pounds then you cannot tow a heavier trailer. Your...

  • Transmission Cooler Recommendation for 2015 Cadillac SRX
  • When towing a relatively high amount for the capacity of a vehicle it's a great idea to have an aftermarket transmission cooler. For a 3,500 lb trailer towed by your 2015 Cadillac SRX with a hitch like the part # C13002 I would recommend going with a cooler like the part # D13502 which will fit and work well. This measures 11" Wide x 7-1/4" tall x 7/8" deep which would easily fit in front of your radiator.

  • Will Addition of Trailer Hitch and Transmission Cooler Allow 2015 Cadillac SRX to Tow 2,900 LB Boat
  • I took a look at the online version of the owner's manual for your 2015 Cadillac SRX and it states that if you do not have the factory trailering package then the SRX has a maximum towing capacity of 2,500 pounds. With the factory trailering package the capacity increases to 3,500 pounds. I wasn't able to determine what exactly is included with the factory tow package but I can say that installing aftermarket enhancement parts like a transmission cooler will not increase the towing...

  • Why Does Curt Hitch for 2016 Cadillac SRX Have Higher Capacity than Vehicle
  • A lot of times our hitch manufacturers rate their hitches for higher towing capacities than what the vehicles they fit have. This is just a way to make sure the hitch never fails. You always have to go by the lowest rated component in a setup for the overall capacity as you are only as strong as your weakest link. The American made Curt hitch part # C13002 that you referenced would be a great choice though. I attached an install video for more info for you to check out as well. Since...

  • Size of Tubing Used to Construct Curt Class III # C13002
  • The cross tube of the # C13002 Curt Class III Receiver hitch is constructed of rectangular tubing that is 2-1/2 by 1-1/2. Looking at the front face of the cross tube, the tubing would be 1-1/2 inches tall and 2-1/2 inches deep, so the # 18156 connector mounting box would be a better fit for you.
