Video Transcript for Trailer Hitch Installation - 2018 Toyota Corolla - Curt

Speaker 1: Today, on our 2018 Toyota Corolla, you're going to be taking a look at . I'm going to show you how to install the Curt Class 1 Trailer Hitch Receiver, part number C11265.This is what our hitch looks like when it's installed. As you can see, the cross tube is visible. However, it does have a round tube design, so it's going to fit with the contour of the vehicle.This is going to be a Class 1, it's going be an inch and a quarter by inch and a quarter. It's going to have plate style safety chain loops and you can see it's got plenty of room for different sized safety chain hooks.Hitch pin hole is going to be half inch in diameter and this hitch is going to come with its own pin and clip.Now, the receiver tube does sit nice and tucked up, underneath the bumper fascia, so you're not going to have to worry about hitting your legs or your shins on it.You're going to have a 200 lbs max tongue weight, which is the downward pressure of the inside of the receiver tube. It's going to have a 2,000 lbs maximum trailer weight, which is the trailer plus the load included.Now, I do recommend checking your owners manual to make sure your vehicle can withstand that amount of weight and you're going to want to pick the lowest number between the vehicle and the hitch.Now, Curt does recommend the use of stabilization straps for any non-wheeled loads.Now, this hitch does have a reinforced collar to give you a little extra stability on your receiver tube.

However, it's not going to change the weight. It does give it a nice clean look while it's on the vehicle though.This hitch is going to have nice clean welds between the receiver tube, your safety chain loops and your cross tube. It is going to be a black powder coated steel, to resist any corrosion.Now, let's give you a few measurements to help you when deciding on any hitch mount accessories you may need, such as a bike rack, or a cargo carrier.From the center of the hitch pin hole, to the outer most part of the bumper, it'll be about 3". From the ground to the top, inner most part of the receiver tube will be about 11". Now, it's a good idea to get a raise shank for better ground clearance.Now let's show you how to get this installed.One thing that's going to make it a little bit easier, if you put the back of the vehicle on ramps and raise the back of it up just a little bit.

If you don't have ramps, it'll work on the ground. It's just going to make it a little bit tight.Now, you can see we have it on ramps and that's just to make it a little bit easier for you at home to see exactly what we're doing.The hardware that we're going to be using is you're going to have four hex bolts and four conical tooth washers. When we install these, you want to make sure that the teeth on the washer are facing up toward the hitch and away from the head of the bolt.Now, we're going to be using these two back holes on the passenger side and then the two back holes on the driver's side; and it's a good idea, even though this is 2018 to spray some lubricant in there and then use a tube brush and clean out those threads, to make sure that our bolts don't bind up in there.Now with an extra set of hands, we'll put the hitch into place and we're going to thread one bolt into a hole to hold our hitch into place while we install the rest of our hardware.Now we'll take our 3/4" socket and tighten all of our hardware down. Once you have all your hardware tightened, you're going to want to torque everything to the specifications in the instructions.And that'll do it for a look at an installation on the Curt Class 1 Trailer Hitch Receiver, part number C11265, on our 2018 Toyota Corolla.

Delivery was prompt and as promised, installation of the actual hitch was as is it as installing 4 bolts, there was really nothing to it the only mistake I made was to try and install it on my own, I recommend not to try it, it's a lot easier with someone helping you keeping it level while you put that 1st bolt after that help is really not needed. Overall a great experience buying from etrailer, great product, excellent communication from the time you place the order to the time you get your product. The hitch was purchased to install a bike rack and carry a couple bikes on it, at this time I have not tried to install a rack or carry any bikes once I actually use it I might be back for and update, overall I like it so far. Some pictures are attached. 453010

2012 Toyota Corolla


I received my Curt Trailer hitch for the sole purpose of mounting into the rear of my wife's 2012 Toyota Corolla SE in order to mount the Thule Doubletrack Bike Rack that we ordered June 2013 and had been using on the rear of truck. To save fuel to and from our biking destinations we order the Curt Class I hitch for her Toyota. It arrived on the estimated date of delivery. Immediately removed it from the cardboard box it was and with the included bolts and washers I installed in literally five minutes time. My wife helped me hold it place while I hand-threaded the bolts into place. With a 19mm, 3/8" drive socket and a 9" extension (needed to reach between the tailpipe and the frame up to the bolts on the passenger side...driver's side done with just the socket). I torqued it to the specified 85 foot pounds of torque with a 3/8" torque wrench and I was done. The hitch looked great by itself, and mounting the rack into the hitch was a cinch and looked great also. On a side note...the Thule Double Rack Bike Rack also purchased earlier from Etrailer when folded up, does not interfere with view of the brake and taillights. As a repeat customer, I was also given Express Customer Service, and my order was literally on it way out for delivery within two hours of placing my order. Etrailer.com has been awesome to work with, and they have become my go-to source for all things trailer-related. Thank you Etrailer.com. :) 124022

2014 Toyota Corolla


I ordered this hitch for my 2014 Corolla for use with my Swagman XC bike rack. I am pleased with the quality of this hitch, it is much heavier duty than I expected. It bolted up easily with the supplied hardware and looks great. Hardly noticeable. The bike rack fits perfectly. Now I am ready to hit the trails. 143553


Comments

I use the hitch for my bike rake. The hitch was super easy to install and looks good on the car. I have recommended your site to several others.

2005 Toyota Corolla


The product arrived in three days from order. Being in a rural area you can't beat that. Installation was simple and straight forward. There was nothing to remove on my 2005 Corolla and only minor was cleaning of the threaded holes was required. There is limited clearance under this car for installation so the biggest challenge was getting the first bolt started near the exhaust pipe as the location of the pipe makes it almost impossible get you hand in there to start the bolts. A 6" or so extension is a must. I used a 1/2" ratchet with a 1/2"-3/8" adapter, 6" extender, and long 19mm socket. The directions recommend 9" extension, but this was plenty. The other requirement is a torque wrench. 86 ft/lbs isn't a challenge for lug nuts, but with the extension and awkward position it requires some strength. I was surprised at how far I was from the torque spec with the 1/2" ratchet. On the ground installation estimate of 30 minutes is accurate without rushing. On a lift this would be a cinch. This is a nice, well built, sturdy product, and as a final perk it is Made in America. 515947

Works great! Have used the hitch and ball to pull a trailer and had no problems. My Corolla handles it quite well.

2009 Toyota Corolla


Product arrived quickly, packed well, and with everything needed to install. I have a 2009 Toyota Corolla LE and here's what I learned from the install tonight: 1. Installing with another set of hands would have been much easier. It took me 50 minutes from the time I opened up the box to tightening the last bolt. I used a set of car jacks to help support the weight of the hitch while I tightened the bolts. 2. Install would be much easier if you drop the muffler. Maneuvering around the muffler was the most difficult part of the installation. 3. I wasn't able to tighten the bolts to the spec ft/lbs. because my torque wrench is big and the space underneath the vehicle is small. I'll have to go back and take care of this later. 4. I would have removed the tow hooks before the product arrive to prep and get familiar with dropping the muffler and/or getting a game plan for install. Hope this helps. 554534

Trailer hitch for a 2012 Corolla. Product was packed for extra protection. This is really great because their is nothing worse than receiving something damaged. Product was very simple to install and only took 20 minutes. Looks great on the car. I highly recommend etrailer for any trailer hitch. 193877

Shipping was free and fast. The product was well packaged and in perfect condition. I never saw better instructions! Color pictures of my exact vehicle plus every help I needed. Also very few companies even carry a hitch for a Toyota Corolla. It is well constructed and I thought a fair price. 166909

I live in California. The trailer hitch and wiring harness that I ordered I went for the 3 to 5 day delivery from Missouri it was at my house in 3 days...I was surprised. They have my product in the Box wrapped extremely tight it arrived in perfect condition no scratches. And it looks great on my car. Already got three of my friends placing an order. On an installation of the trailer hitch video that I watched said that the plastic cover that covers the gas tank underneath might have to be removed I have a 2016 Toyota Corolla S and I did not have to remove the plastic cover the hitch fit perfect had it in about 25 minutes great product thanks guys for everything!! If I ever need another one this is where I'm going without doubt!! 484834

First and foremost a kudos goes to Christy B. for handling my order by telephone with skill, courtesy, and aplomb. A tip of the hat goes to all the staff behind the scenes to make this operation so smooth. This hitch for a 10th generation Toyota Corolla is precisely manufactured and painted. Installation with the included hardware was a breeze. Note: If your Corolla is equipped with a custom or aftermarket exhaust such as the well made Borla cat-back kit, the rear hanger standoff might interfere with the right side hitch bracket. Suggest checking and if necessary devise a minimal work around. As most know, paint quality is only part of the equation. Base metal prep is important and I will assume I should not be concerned. 159288

Bought the Curt hitch for my 2018 Toyota Corolla. Installed it myself within a half hour after delivery. Very simple to do. The provided video was great. I would recommend a tarp on the cement to prevent any scratches. Communication from George at etrailer was excellent. Will definitely buy from again. 541348

I received my Curt hitch for my 2014 Corolla 3 days after placing my order. It appears to be an attractive and well made hitch. My biggest challenge was the cleaning out of the 3/8 inch tapped holes since my car was 2 years old and I live in Michigan where winter roads are treated with chloride etc. Other than that it was a piece of cake. I propped the hitch up on two one gallon paint cans with a rag on each to prevent scratching. I was able to install without extra assistance. Have a flashlight handy as it may be helpful. I had watched the video ahead of time and that was what closed the deal for me. I encourage anyone to watch the video! It really is not a complicated task. 267727

1996 Ford Ranger


I bought this recently because my 96 Ranger became unsafe to drive...frame rust among other things. I still need to haul things so I put the hitch on my Corolla, and with a new light trailer, am back in business. The slotted holes made installation easy. Because of the age of my car [06] it had a lot of corrosion and debris in the nut holes so I had to buy a tap [$5 at a big box store] and clean them out before installing. The round tubing is sleek and unobtrusive. The only negative; the receiver tube had a light burr on two sides, probably from the cut off process during manufacturing, so I had to use a flat file about ten strokes to allow the ball mount to slide in 160085

Awesome product. Installed in seriously like 5 minutes with one socket. Nothing needed removed, holes are pre drilled in the car and attachment was 4 bolts. Doesn't get any easier. Now just waiting on the wire harness and will see how easy that installation is 409337

I bought many hitches over the years always had them installed and this place had the best price, awesome web sight to look at everything and clear easy to read instructions. plus the whole unit looked great. it stated it should take an average person 20 minutes to install and they were right minus time it took myself to find my own metric socket but went on sooooooo easy. great service, shipped lightning quick, good looking addition for the car as well. 314068

The Curt trailer hitches are consistently my favorites. And etrailer consistently offers the best prices out there. I install the Curt hitches myself, and Curt makes it easy. On older Toyotas you may need a tap to clean up the threads. Curt also improves their product over time, e.g., I've installed two hitches on 2008 Corollas, and the most recent hitch was better designed than the first one because they reconfigured it to make tightening the bolts easier and more accessible. My only complaint is that one of the bolts that came with the hitch had the wrong thread count, and I had to drive 30 minutes to a hardware store to buy a replacement. 181206

Best price and easy installation. The packaging was better this time, box was a little big, but im sure thats just a one-size-fits all situation. It did not come with a cap/plug, just thought that was standard. Took five minutes to install on 2017 Toyota Corolla SE. No need to jack up the car or remove anything UNLESS you have a tow loop, passenger side. Minimal scratches, nothing major or down to the metal. Towing kayak on kayak trailer. Rack systems are nice to avoid storage, registration and parking limitations of trailers, but they also ruin your paint IF it has clips. Overall, very satisfied with purchase. 504868

folks this is how a business is supposed to be ran. as soon as the order was placed i received an email from George J at e trailer with phone number to contact the company and a link to track the product. the product was very well made and fit properly .the snap on wires for the trailer was super good no cutting wires on your vehicle so my review is very good products very very good service thanks 235602


Comments

the trailer hitch and wiring are both working well for us after about a years use . after having this thing for awhile i find it is just what i needed . i like the fact that when it is not being used the wiring goes in the trunk out of the weather .

To all future buyers make sure you check your vehicle mount, you might need to knock the rust out! I cannot wait to use this to pull a 4x8 trailer from Maryland to Texas with my awesome Toyota Corolla! 571687

Excellent product....fits my 2009 Corolla like a glove and looks as classy as the car itself. I had to take the car to a local trailer place to let them ream/tap the pre-existing threaded holes in the frame because there was NO way the supplied hardware could bite 8 years of crud or rust that had accumulated there. Once they did their prep work, the mount went on like clockwork.Have I actually used the hitch and draw bar much in the past year? Not really, but when I do, I have complete confidence in the hardware and the wiring supplied by etrailer.com. 521084

Got here fast, even at my semi rural address. All parts taped on, good thing because one part of the bracket was hanging out the box end. Wore through the cardboard, after the interior cardboard support got crashed, so maybe a bit of a wrapped foot padding to help that out a bit ?? No scratches, but could have been worse. The more visible round tube was good, whew. Looks like a good product at a good price, saved me over $100. in installation cost, and higher hitch cost at local shop. Thanks, will use you next time too. 264775

I have a 2004 Toyota Corolla. Shipment was fast even with the holiday. Parts and bolts all securely packed. I also ordered the 1.25 to 2" adapter. Installing: I couldn't get the bolts to catch to screw in so I tapped the weld nuts and that did the trick. Local stores have the single 12-1.25 so I didn't have to buy an entire tap and die set. After that the installation was pretty straight forward. I wish I would have thought to investigate a hitch years ago versus carrying the bikes on a trunk carrier. 402941

Very happy with the hitch that i had ordered. The install was easy, everything bolted up like it should. The hitch to me is a very well made product. Also the costumer service was great. I had also ordered a 1-1/4" to 2" receiver to go with the hitch . Before the ordered was placed Leeza called me to tell me this particular item wouldn't work with the hitch. So she had the right receiver which in doing so saved me time and money. I received everything in one box 2 days later. Two thumbs up very happy. 483771

The hitch appears well made and was super easy to install. 86 foot pounds of torque is required to tighten the 4 bolts into the car frame so Popeye-sized muscle is required. The wiring T-connecter was also easy to install. Make sure you order the correct hitch (I goofed and accidentally ordered a hitch for a Scion). That was a $50 mistake in return UPS fees. I still have not received reimbursement for the returned hitch. Their order shipping was fast. Come on eTrailer, credit my return! 151826

This is an excellent tow hitch for my needs. I only have a tiny 10ft boat and very light trailer so class 1 was perfect. CrystalK at E-Trailer was awesome and helped me get what I needed. I have 1 2016 Toyota Corolla. I intend to use E-trailer for all my needs going forward. Its really easy to install, 4 bolts, the only thing that may take longer is the wiring harness because you have to run that to the battery, but that's in another review and I gave it 5 stars too. 525018

It was easy to install with some difficulties. Screw holes of my Corolla was rusted badly, and bolts refused to go in. I had to clean up holes with WD40 really good, and that was time consuming. Also somehow torque wrench didn't click using upside down, so I had to guess tightening the bolts. Overall it feels pretty solid. No problem hauling a couple of mountain bikes. There was no problem with etrailer. Good communication. Arrived products packed nicely. 406592

I ordered a trailer hitch and wiring kit for my Toyota Corolla. Everything in the kit fit perfectly and the wire kit was a breeze to plug together. Everything is working great. Free shipping was a bonus!! The videos on the etrailer website were extremely helpful. My main issue was getting the bolt hole free of corrosion to bolt the hitch on..took a lot of PB Blaster, WD-40, and a wire brush for 1/2 inch plumbing fittings. I would use etrailer.com again! 198354

I will say that this product truly exceeded my expectations. First to mention I will say that this trailer hitch is probably now the most structurally sound element to my 2006 Toyota Corolla. The hitch was delivered on time, packaged well and installed in less than 10 minutes. I don't know how this product could be made any better at this tow class rating and price point. I could see this hitch costing twice as much and still being a good buy. 280146

I like the round bar because it looks much better than the square bar. This hitch is tucked up under my Corolla very nicely. Also, the chain mount is better. This chain mount is cut out of a flat bar. You have to tilt your S-hooks up at an angle to slide them on and off. Therefore, they can't pop off in transit. Your S-hooks might have a wider opening than mine. If so, bend them tighter. 275441

It was a great fit and very easy to install even with just one person. I would like if the holes the bolts went through were a little tighter. You have to really double check to get it centered as best you can. It could be that way to allow fitment with so many years for the Corolla though. It came with a hitch pin too. VERY happy to have that included. 491320

This is my third hitch Curt hitch from etrailer and each has fit perfectly. Shipping was on time, packaging was fine & hitch was undamaged. Install is a little easier with two people, but I did ok by my 71 year old self. Most time consuming part was cleaning out the bolt holes. Use WD-40 & a wire brush. It really makes a difference. 242731

I thought I'd have time to find a trailer but the hitch arrived a day early, came in only 2 days! It took about a beer to install and was easier than I imagined which, according to my wife, gave me more time to do things 'around the house' ... great product and shipping but where's the love guys ... a little slower next time ok? 432428

Product arrived on time, with excellent packing. Fit perfectly. The longest part of the installation was finding my 19mm socket which I had left where I would always remember where it was, but once I found it I installed the hitch in about 5 minutes. I am using it to put a bike rack on which I haul my moms wheelchair on. 145784

Free shipping was fast. It took about two hours to install, installation was very easy, time was spent cleaning out bolt holes, emptying out trunk and removing lining for access to tail lights for wiring, bathroom break, breakfast :) :) . . . . . . actual work time about 20-25 mins hitched. wired and ready to go 260447

I can't believe all these years I've been paying hundreds of dollars for people to install my hitches and wiring. Your videos made it so easy.

Fast delivery, easy and fast installation from a well known brand and best price from etrailer there isn't anything bad to say. I had it installed in 10 minutes without even having to jack the car up. Fitment is great and does not get in the way of muffler hanger or anything else. Thanks a lot! 491978

The hitch arrived quickly and was easy to install. it appears to be well made with a nice finish. Pay attention to the instructions for installing. The bolt holes in the frame of my 2 year old car were very rusty and needed to be wire brushed extensively before the bolts would thread in 190506

Do you have a question about this Trailer Hitch?


  • Bike Rack Recommendation and Comparison of Yakima FullBack and HalfBack 2-Bike Trunk Racks
  • Honestly, the best way to prevent scratches to your vehicle's paint is going to get a hitch mounted rack. The difference between the Yakima HalfBack # Y02636 and the FullBack # Y02634 is that the FullBack comes with integrated locks that lock the bikes to rack and rack to vehicle. We typically recommend a fresh wash and wax before installing any trunk rack. It is important that the rack be installed securely to reduce bouncing or movement, which causes scratches.

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for a 2017 Toyota Corolla
  • Yes, Curt trailer hitch # C11265 will fit the 2017 Toyota Corolla. But if you plan on using the hitch for a bike rack or cargo carrier and not towing I recommend Draw-Tite hitch # 24913. The reason is that for the Curt hitch Curt requires the use of stabilization strap # 18050 when using their hitch with any non-trailer load for their warranty requirements. Draw-Tite does not have that requirement.

  • Bolt Size to Install a Trailer Hitch on a 2004 Toyota Corolla
  • The weldnuts in the frame for your 2004 Toyota Corolla to install a trailer hitch are M12 nuts. The bolts used to install a hitch, # C11265 as an example, are M12-1.25 x 30mm grade 5. It is recommended to clean out the weldnuts prior to installing the hitch. Road grime and corrosion can get compacted in the threads and you would not be able to thread in the bolts without first cleaning the weldnuts. I have included some links to the right that should help. If you plan on doing some...

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for a 2016 Toyota Corolla
  • When it comes to whether or not a vehicle can tow a trailer you have to follow either what the owners manual states or what Toyota says. In your case you have the owners manual saying one thing and a Toyota dealer saying another. You might try contacting another dealer, but if they told you that your vehicle is okay to tow then they are saying the warranty of your vehicle would still be good through them if you were to tow a trailer and have any issues in the future. The Curt Hitch part...

  • Distance from Ground to Bottom of Curt Trailer Hitch C11265 Installed on a 2016 Toyota Corolla
  • With Curt trailer hitch # C11265 installed on your 2016 Toyota Corolla the distance from the ground to the bottom of the hitch will be approximately 9-1/4 inches. It measures 10-3/4 inches from the ground to the top of the receiver opening. If you want to use the hitch for an accessory such as a bike rack or cargo carrier then you have to make sure the accessory is rated for use with a Class I trailer hitch. Also, with a bike rack, you are limited to 2 bikes maximum on a Class I hitch. Curt...

  • Trailer Hitches and Towing Capacities for 2014 Toyota Corolla
  • Makers of trailer hitches design their products based on the capabilities of the cars they are intended to fit. In the case of the 2014 Toyota Corolla only light-duty 1-1/4-inch Class I hitches are made. This is simply because the Corolla's frame is not strong enough to support a hitch of higher capacity than this Class I type. You might care to review the linked articles on hitch sizes and classes. The linked page will show you all three choices in a Class I hitch for your Corolla. On...

  • What is a Draw Bar for Use with Trailer Hitch for 2003 Toyota Corolla
  • The term "draw bar" is interchangeable with the term "ball mount" which both mean the shank that slides into the hitch opening that can hold a hitch ball. I attached a picture that shows what the Curt ball mount part # C45521 looks like that is recommended for use with the Curt hitch # C11265 which is a confirmed fit for your 2003 Toyota Corolla. For trailer wiring you'd then want the part # 55542 which is a confirmed fit. For a hitch ball then you'd want the # A-80 for a 1-7/8 inch...

  • Does Draw-Tite Class I Trailer Hitch Receiver # 24913 Include Ball Mount, Pin and Clip
  • You are correct that the Draw-Tite Sportframe Trailer Hitch Receiver # 24913 includes a ball mount, hitch pin and clip. The Curt hitch # C11265 includes the pin and clip, but not the ball mount. Please note that the availability of hitches for any given vehicle does not necessarily mean that vehicle can tow a trailer. I was not able to verify any tow rating for your Corolla. Your owners manual or local Toyota dealership should be able to offer clarification of the vehicles capacities. All...

  • Receiver Hitch Recommendation for a 2008 Toyota Corolla LE
  • You are correct, the Curt and Draw-Tite receiver hitches all look very similar and also offer the same weight capacities. The biggest difference between the two brands of receiver hitches for your 2008 Toyota Corolla is the fact that the Curt, # C11265, requires the use of stabilizing straps, # 18050, for all non-trailer loads like bike racks, cargo carriers and so forth. Failure to properly support these loads will void your hitch warranty from Curt. The Draw-Tite brand does not require...

  • Hitch Recommendation for a 2012 Toyota Corolla S
  • I checked with Curt and the Curt Hitch part # C11265 that you referenced is confirmed to fit all model 2012 Toyota Corollas so it would work on your S model. I attached an install video for you to check out as well. For trailer wiring you would want the Curt Wiring Harness part # 55542, ball mount # C45521, 1-7/8 inch ball part # 19256, 2 inch ball part # 19258.

  • Hitch and Roof Rack Recommendations for 2013 Toyota Corolla
  • You would need to start with the hitch. I would recommend the Curt Class I receiver, part # C11265. Although the hitch has a towing capacity of 2000 lbs, my research indicates that the Corolla is limited to towing 1500 lbs. Therefore, you will need to ensure that the fully loaded weight of your trailer does not exceed 1500 lbs. You will also need the appropriately sized trailer ball for your coupler, part # 19256 for a 1-7/8 inch ball or # 19258 for a 2 inch ball. You will also need...

  • 2012 Toyota Corolla Trailer Hitch Bolts
  • There are two trailer hitch options we have for your 2012 Toyota Corolla; the Curt # C11265 and the Draw-Tite # 24913. They are both listed as a fit for 2003 to 2018 models so the bolts will be the same. Both will use the hex bolts M12 X 1.25 X 35 CL8.8 along with the conical washers into the factory weldnuts. It is not recommended to reuse the hardware because it has already been torqued to specs once, so if you want the factory replacement hardware for either hitch you can use kit # RHK.

  • Available Trailer Hitch Class for 2017 Toyota Corolla
  • Hitch manufacturers produce hitches of the size, class and weight capacity that more or less match the vehicle's own limits. For example, it would not do any good to bolt a 500-lb-rated hitch onto a vehicle whose capacity is only 200-lbs because much of the hitch's capacity would be wasted. In a multi-part system the lowest-rated part determines overall capacity, like the weakest-link-in-the-chain idea. Only light-duty 1-1/4-inch Class I hitches like Curt # C11265 are made for your 2017...
