as always, etrailer shipping was fast. hitch fits and looks great, tucked underneath and up against the plastic bumper. used it immediately for its intended use for a hitch mounted bike rack. removing the spare tie is a must for clearance and work room. install took more time due to cleaning the welded nuts and dry fitting the bolts. otherwise only had to lower one side of the exhaust and bolt it to the frame. 228088

Installed this on 2009 Acura MDX. Instructions are incorrect as they call for a 22mm and 10mm socket. You will also need 18mm. Packaging was wonderful, I've read past reviews about poor packaging but it appears they've remedied that problem. Ordering was very easy and they shipped VERY quickly and I got it exactly when I needed to have it as I waited until the very last minute to order it. Thank goodness they are quick to process and ship! I did not use a lift or jack stands and I think it was just as easy without them. I'm 5'10" and 170 lbs so I was able to move around under the car as it sits with no real problems. A lift will definitely make life easier but I'm not sure if jack stands would help all that much. You only have to lower one side of exhaust and remove one heat shield and then you can put this hitch in at at angle. Highly recommend silicone to lubricate the hangers to lower the exhaust, mine were basically stuck until we used silicone. Getting it basically installed is rather easy but be ready to turn the bolts forever until they tighten up. To get the 130 ft lbs of torque you are going to need several lengths of ratchet extensions and probably several lengths of ratchets to get the torque you need. Smaller ones are fine at first but then you will need longer to really get the leverage required. I think it took us about 2-3 hours to install this, if I did another one it would probably take about an hour just because I'd have less uncertainty and would know exactly what to do with which tools. If I did this again, I'd probably use a cordless driver to get the bolts going until they got tight. 167489

Absolutely no problem installing this hitch. I was going to choose the more expensive Hidden Hitch or DrawTite versions based on other reviews here. I called eTrailer and they convinced me that the Curt product was just as good and should be just as easy to install. They were absolutely right. Main things everyone asks: Yes, the spare tire fits fine. No, the bumper cover and trim do not need to be modified or even temporarily removed. My one negative comment: packaging is minimal. Box was damaged in shipping and my hitch had a 2 inch long scratch all the way to bare metal. I didn't feel like sending it back, so I used some car touch up paint I had to hopefully avoid rusting of the hitch. My tips: 1. Most of us don't have a lift. Definitely want to use two jack stands to provide good working room. Will briefly need a second person when raising the hitch and starting the bolts. 2. Read all the reviews and watch all the videos you can. Each has little nuggets of helpful hints. Prep work and correct tools are key to easy install. 3. My car is only about a year old and weld nuts were full of debris, paint, and undercoating. A tap would be ideal to clean it out (worth the $10 investment from Home Depot or a good tool store. Otherwise, take the time to spray with solvent and run a bolt back an forth through each hole. You might want to get an extra bolt from the hardware store to "sacrifice" for this purpose to avoid excessive wear on your permanent bolt. Get the tap and/or bolt specification from the installation instructions online while you wait for your order to arrive (eTrailer provides a link with order status). Buy this ahead of time and have it on hand when you start. Otherwise you will be tempted to skip it and will be sorry you did. 4. Gently clean undercoating and debris from frame surface and apply a little grease to frame to make raising the hitch into place easy. I never needed the rubber mallet others describe using. Be careful not to remove paint so you don't expose raw metal. 5. Get all 8 bolts started (BY HAND TO AVOID CROSS-THREADING) before cranking any of them down. I used an impact gun to run them in closer, then a torque wrench to set them to specified torque. Impact wrench was just a luxury. A socket wrench or cordless drill would do just fine. I did like having the torque wrench for final crank on the bolts. I bought a $20 1/2" one from Harbor Freight (a cheapy, but a rare use item for me). I justified the tool purchase as a nice to have item that I could afford with all the money I saved using eTrailer and choosing the least-expensive hitch. 6. I bought the Curt harness. Worked perfectly. I elected to not run it all the way out since this hitch will be only occasionally used and then mostly for bike rack and "hitch haul" carrier. Keeping the harness in the tool area of the hatch keeps it out of the exterior elements and makes for a nice clean looking install. My MDX had a perfect "hiding place". Note that for my 2011 MDX, there are factory fuses (4) for the various trailer light functions. These fuses are not installed by ACURA and DO NOT NEED TO BE INSTALLED. They only come into play if you use the OEM harness from ACURA. 7. That's it. Could only be easier if I had a lift. You will need an extra person for only a few minutes while raising the hitch and starting the bolts. Enjoy a sweet looking install and go out to dinner on the money you saved. In my case you can make a car payment with the savings since Acura wanted $850 for the dealer-installed OEM hitch and harness. 47680

Spare tire is Acura original. Temporary spare. So, smaller than regular tires, but it is OEM and what hitch was designed around.

Like others have said in previous review posts, the packaging can be improved upon as the box was cut open, even though the product was not damaged. The overall product is sturdy, heavy and not something that can be easily lift with one hand/arm. With that said, this is pretty easy to install IF you have the right tools, i would definitely recommend that if you are not a handy person and doesn't have your own garage full of tools, you're better off just paying a car shop and have them install it for you for an hour or two worth of fee. My dad and i spend about 3 hours installing this thing, mostly cause the screw holes in my acura mdx 2007 had a lot of rust in it, so he had to spend over an hour to get the rust out, otherwise the screws won't fit due to the rust inside the screw holes. Once that was completed, the hitch installed quickly probably about 20-30 mins, but another 30-40 mins to clean up, put the mufflers and heat shields back up, wipe things off, put the spare tire back on, unload the car off the jack, etc.....much easier for a two man job as I don't see how one person can do this quickly/cleanly. Also make sure to have some grease gel or WD40 around to lubricate/protect the bolts/screws as to prevent rusts build up down the road. Overall, it looks like a good quality product that will lasts for years, assume the black paint coating is there to protect from rusting due to the harsh new england weather. 431409

Installation was not as easy as I hoped. I jacked the car up and placed it on axle stands about two to three feet off the floor. The exhaust pipes are held by two rubber pieces per side but I only loosened the exhausts by removing one rubber piece only and that gave me enough access to remove the heat shields. I then did a dry fit using Copperslip of all the bolts to make sure they would screw home correctly. The tow bar we call it that in Europe / hitch then slipped past the exhaust pipes and roughly into place. After that it took a lot of grunting, huffing and puffing to get the tow bar into position to secure the first bolt. I then moved to the other side of the vehicle and secured the first bolt on that side. Once two bolts were secure it made it much easier and with the aid of my trolley jack I managed to work it into place to secure all the bolts. Each bolt was secured at 101 lbs as per instructions apart from the one bolt that is very difficult to get to. I got that tight and secured by tapping the wrench with a hammer! Overall the installation was fairly easy and took a couple of hours from start to finish. The towbar / hitch was a very tight fit but looks great. The wiring assembly was easy to install and took just a few moments. 39714

Installation was a breeze once the spare tire was lowered and the muffler mounts were removed. Having an extra set of hands definitely makes lifting the hitch a lot easier but I've also been able to use a floor jack as well. I also installed the C56038 which only took a few steps and it remains out of the way when not in use. All in all it's a solid hitch and it tucks nicely under the bumper. 639032

Installed easily in an hour. Only had to undo one muffler and heat shield to get hitch into position. You are right about needing a second set of hands to hold hitch while you get bolts started. I actually managed it by myself but it took a minute and some patience to get hitch to line up with a bolt hole so I could get it bolt started. Once one bolt is in it goes smoothly after that 847307

    The size bolts that come with the hitch part # 13354 are M14 - 1.5 x 35 HEX and M14 - 1.5 x 40 HEX. That means the tap size you would need is M14 - 1.5. I also attached a help article that covers how to clean weld nuts for when installing a hitch like what you are doing.

    Yes. The Curt Class III # 13354 hitch will fit on your 2010 Acura MDX as long as you don't have the full sized spare tire under your vehicle, and provides you with a 2" hitch that will work to carry the Yakima FullSwing 4 # Y02465. Because the FullSwing is a hanging bike rack you will need frame adapter bars like the Swagman # 64005 for each bike that has an aggressive step through frame- like a women's bike and kids' bikes.

    There is no specific torque value for re-attaching the heat shield during the installation process for Curt hitch # 13354 that fits your 2011 Acura MDX. The reason is that heat shields are generally fairly thin sheet metal. They do not need to be torqued down super tight since they are not bearing any load. Just tighten the fasteners until they stop rotating and then give them another 1/4-turn to 1/2-turn. These fasteners will not need anywhere near the same force as the hitch installation...

  • Trailer Hitch and Weight Distribution Recommendation for a 2010 Acura MDX and 5,000 Pound Trailer
    The CURT Trailer Hitch, # 13354, would be a good choice for your 2010 Acura MDX. When used with weight distribution, it has a tongue weight capacity of 500 pounds and a gross trailer weight capacity of 5,000 pounds. I have included a link to the installation instructions and a link to a video showing a typical installation. When choosing a weight distribution system, you will want to go with one that has a tongue weight capacity range that encompasses the tongue weight of the trailer...

  • Trailer Hitch Receiver Compatible with Spare Tire on 2008 Acura MDX
    I recommend checking the spare because often they appear to be full size until removed. If you have the standard "mini" spare which is a thinner tire when compared to the rear tire then the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class III - 2" # 13354 is my recommendation. I've attached a photo of the "mini" spare with the hitch installed for reference. There is not a trailer hitch receiver fit if you have a full size spare tire. This is rare, but if you do have the full size...

  • Are Any Additional Products Needed to Install Curt Trailer Hitch # 13354 on 2008 Acura MDX
    The Curt Trailer Hitch # 13354 that you referenced comes with all the necessary hardware to install on your 2008 Acura MDX, so you will not need any additional accessories to complete the installation. A hitch lock is not a necessity for the hitch installation, however I highly recommend using a lock with both your bikes and bike rack. The Tow-Ready Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock # 5201 is an economical way to safeguard your investment. Another option is the Hollywood Racks # HRLHPC2 which...

  • Transporting 2 Hobie Mirage Outbacks with 2011 Acura MDX
    The Hobie Outback you have weighs in at 85 lbs so it would be harder to get onto the roof of a vehicle even if you had a roof rack and roof capacity that would accommodate 170 lbs of just kayaks. We don't carry any roof racks for your vehicle that would have enough weight capacity so best option is a kayak trailer like the Malone MegaSport Trailer with MegaWing Kayak Cradles # MPG550-M. You'll need a trailer hitch installed on your 2011 Acura MDX as well like the # 13354. For trailer...
