Video Transcript for Curt Trailer Hitch Installation - 2017 Mazda 3

Speaker 1: Today on our 2017 Mazda 3 you're going to be taking a look at, I'm going to show you how to install the Curt Class One trailer hitch receiver. Part number C11377. This is what our hitch looks like when it's installed. As you can see the cross-tube is visible however it is a round tube design and each end of it does have a light bend in it so it's going to fit nicely with the contour of the vehicle.It's going to have plate-style safety chain loops so it' got plenty of room for different size safety chain hooks. And this hitch is going to be a Class One. It's going to be 1 1/4" by 1 1/4".

Hitch pinhole is going to be half inch in diameter. As you can see it's going to have a nice reinforced collar to give it a little bit extra stability on the receiver tube.However this is not going to change the weight capacity. This hitch is going to have a 200 pound max tongue weight which is the downward pressure on the inside of the receiver tube and a 2000 pound max trailer weight which is the trailer plus the load included. Now I do recommend checking the owner's manual of your Mazda to make sure the vehicle can withstand that amount of weight. You want to pick the lowest number between the vehicle and the hitch.Now Curt does recommend you use some stabilization straps for any non-wheel loads.

Keep in mind this is a Class One hitch so you are required to only use Class One accessories. As far as the installation goes, this is a very simple installation. There's not going to be any drilling or welding required. It's going to come with all the necessary hardware.I do recommend getting an extra set of hands to help lift the hitch into place. Now let's give you a few measurements to help you on deciding on a new hitch accessory you may need such as a bike rack or cargo carrier.

From the center of the hitch pinhole to the outermost part of the bumper is about 3 inches. From the ground to the top innermost part of the receiver tube is about 11 1/2 inches. Now it's a good idea to get a raised shank for better ground clearance.Now let's show you how to get this installed. We're going to take our pull wire, spring in. We're going to go through this back hole.

We're going to come out of the large hole right here in the front. Like that. Put a little bend in your wire to keep it from coming out. You're going to take the spacer block. Go ahead and slide it on and up and into the hole. Carriage bolt, we're going to thread it on to our spring.You can pull it out of the hole like that. You're going to do the same thing on the other side. Next we're going to do what's called the reverse pull. Take another spring or a pull wire. Put on your spacer block first. Thread on your carriage bolt. We're going to push our carriage bolt up in the hole first and our spacer block and just pull it back down through.The next thing we got to do is this little tab right here on the bottom of our fascia, we're going to have to cut a little section out of it. We're going to go about like this and this is on our driver's side. Passenger side I'm going to go about like this. I'm going to take some tin snips. You can use a razor knife if you want. These usually work pretty good. We'll get these tabs out. Now with an extra set of hands we're going to take our pull wires which go through the corresponding holes.We'll over top of our exhaust. There it's in place. We'll remove one of the wires and we're going to put on a flange nut. We're going to put one of the flange nuts on both sides of the hitch to hold our hitch in place while we install our remaining hardware. Now you can put on the remaining hardware. Next, with a 19 millimeter socket we're going to tighten all of our hardware. Next we'll torque all the hardware to the specifications in the instructions.And that will do it for a look at an installation on the Curt Class One trailer hitch receiver, part number C11377 on our 2017 Mazda Three,.

My search for a hitch led me right to etrailer, and the selection and ordering process was a breeze. Shipping was very prompt and the installation process was relatively straightforward. The online video was helpful, but I own the hatchback model so there are a few differences I had to figure out. Some basic bicycle lubricant helped to free the muffler mounts so I could access the mounting points. The only thing I was not able to do on my own was touque the bolts due to the tight clearance of laying under my car, which was expected. The hitch preformed well with the bike carrier I own and I hardly notice the hitch with out the rack on board. Definitely a quality product at a great price and I would certainly recommend etrailer. 596026

I was just recently able to attempt installing my new equipment, but unfortunately it does not fit my vehicle. I have a 2014 Mazda3 Hatchback, which this item is listed as fitting, but as you can see in the pictures the bolt holes are much farther apart on the equipment than on the vehicle. It appears to have the correct product number which I ordered except that this item us not designed with a C as listed online. Please advise on how to rectify the issue. 601485

There is another hole in the frame member on the other side of the exhaust mount shown in your photo. The hole could be covered with a plastic plug, tape or undercoating, you might need to take a putty knife to the underside of the frame member to scrape away any undercoat or grime that might be covering the mounting hole.

Instructions were good, install was easy, required no drilling or cutting for my application; 2104 Mazda 3 hatchback. Removing the exhaust hangers was easy using a spray solution of water and dish soap, I used a cambuckle type of tie down hooked to the suspension to raise and lower the exhaust as needed. I unclipped a wire on the driver side frame to give a little extra space to position the hitch. It helps to have a helper to position the hitch and hold it up while bolting it. This is my second hitch from Etrailer and like the first one it arrived in good condition. 136483

Installation was easy on my 2016 Mazda 3/5 door hatchback. Using just a quick squirt of silicone lube on the 4 muffler hanger made them slip off with ease. The 2 front mounting holes were not obvious and I first though that the hitch wouldn't fit, but looking a little closer the front holes were there under the muffler hanger rod and a little hard to see. They were also covered by tape that was mentioned in the instructions. I found it helpful to temporarily support the hitch with plastic tie wraps from the muffler hangers with the hitch lifted in place until I could get the nuts on. U-Haul wanted $250 for there hitch installed. 293492

The C11377 did not align properly with the frame holes on my 2015 Mazda3 iSport 4dr sedan and had to use the back feeder hole. Also had to trim some of the bottom spolier but not visible from the back. Also was one who pushed a screw back into the frame. Wish they would account for that and include 5 screws. 184643

Shipping was prompt. Despite very little apparent damage to the box, the hitch had a few deep scratches and chips. I repaired these with black touch-up paint, but it shouldn't arrive like this. It would be nice if the mounting hardware (bolts and flat brackets) were stainless steel. Installation certainly requires the removal of the four rubber exhaust hangers. Use a jack stand under the main pipe to lower the muffler about two inches. The installation will be very difficult if attempted alone because the hitch has to be carefully moved into position and then the bolts to which guide wires are affixed have to be threaded through the holes on the brackets of the hitch. The fit is good on a 2017 Mazda3 hatchback. Equal clearance all around and no interference with the exhaust pipes or bumper. Appearance wise, I think the Curt looks better than the Drawtite which a friend of mine has on his Mazda3. 509350

Nice fit and finish. Was able to do this myself taking my time even without jacking up the car. Suggest you get a muffler hanger removal tool to make the job very easy. Instead of trying to run the fishwire from the back large hole to the front small hole, route the spiral end (without the bolt attached yet) thru the front small hole towards the back. It's trivial then to snag that end of the fishwire out the large hole and attach the bolt. Then gently pull the bolt through to the front hole Seems backwards at first until you try it! 194976

Great hitch, great price! Fairly easy install. Only time consuming issue was getting the 4 rubber isolation dampers off to lower the exhaust. Once that was done it was a breeze. The bolts fish easily with the provided wires. I am using it with a Kuat transfer 1 bike rack. 653670

Everything worked fine for my Mazda 3. Except that the width of the bar was off by about a quarter of an inch. I had to jam a 2x4 to correct the length while we bolted onto the vehicle. One year later and it still works well. Have driven about 500 miles with two bikes on it with no problems. 621943

We now have 3 Curt manufacturing trailer hitches in our family on various years of Mazda3. They all fit perfectly and were easy to install for this middle-aged woman. I also bought harnesses from etrailer. They have excellent service and an excellent website from which to order. I have installed both the wire-in harness and the plug in; I would recommend the plug in one for occasional towing. I was able to install the wire-in harness after some YouTube learning about using a multimeter. I also learned how to temporarily lower the muffler to install the hitch. A different brand of hitch is available that can be installed around the muffler instead of having to lower it, but I wanted a Curt Manufacturing hitch, so after some more You Tube learning I installed it without problems. I would definitely order from e trailer again! 560920

We were very happy with our purchase, despite our initial reservations on ordering a hitch online. Our hitch was delivered very quickly with free shipping. We priced out locally and we ended up saving over $80 alone on what we would have been charged to order and pick up from two local providers. The instructions were very clear and simple and our hitch was on within hours of being delivered! Thrilled with our purchase from etrailer and highly recommend!! 553905

This was a perfect fit for my 2018 Mazda 3 Hatchback. At first it looked like I could get it in by jacking up the rear. Alas, not the case. However, raising the rear DOES make it easier to work on. If you can sneak a little screwdriver into the rubber muffler mount, and spray in some silicone or other lube, it makes the job of removing the mounts much easier. You only need to remove the BOTTOM part of the mount, by the way. The welds and powder coat finish look great...pleased with the product and looking forward to many miles pulling a small trailer with light boats or a motorcycle. Follow through with etrailer was very professional after they could not find the used hitch that I first ordered. Helpful and friendly.... 552251

As received, the hitch was packed well but had still received a few minor scratches in the paint. The hitch was installed on a 2017 Mazda 3 sedan. Installation was straightforward and the box contained all the parts needed to complete the install. As installed, the top of the crossbar clears the lower skirt by about an inch, leaving the hitch hanging lower than desired. This low position decreases the rear departure angle and may result in dragging the hitch on a steep transition. Perhaps the low position is needed on the 5 door - I do not know. I have not yet towed with the hitch but do not expect any issues in doing so. 451615

Good hitch. Held up well so far (about a year of light use, mostly transporting two bicycles on a highway). It was a pain to install alone, but it is possible for 2014 Mazda 3. Installation took me about 2 hours and i used jackstands to prop up one of the sides of the hitch as i was installing it. For the Mazda installation, make sure you get the exhaust bracket removal tool (<20$ at a local hardware store), otherwise those rubber holders seem impossible to remove. Guiding the bolts using the provided hardware was surprising easy one i was at that stage. 404547

We finally had a chance to unbox the trailer hitch last weekend and were disappointed to find quite a few gouges in the powder coating including two that showed bare metal underneath. One of the reasons we like the Curt hitches is that they are powder coated and I shouldn't have to worry about seeing rust on it in 10 years (yes we keep our cars for at least 10 years). The box and packaging was great so this happened prior to boxing. I've purchased my trailer hitches exclusively through etrailer to avoid these types of problems, but in the future will most likely look for another vendor. 375935

I ha d bought this one as it said that the fit was for my car. I had reservations as I bought a hitch before from someone else and the easy mount was far from the truth. But this hitch was exactly the opposite. It went on easy and no holes to drill. It has been used multiple times and I have been pleased with it. 366188

I put one on my Mazda 3 hatchback and it was as simple as could be. No drilling or anything like that. Fish the bolts thru the frame and tighten it down, then plug in the wires and hide them by the spare tire. The nice thing about this setup is that the plug is always inside and out of the elements when not in use. Even someone with very limited mechanical skills should be able to install a hitch like the one I have. Videos helped too. 355111

Installation was relatively easy, but best with two people. Helpful hints, center the hitch before you reinstall the muffler hangers, and dry fit the rack before you fishwire the bolts through to confirm which frame holes you will be attaching the rack! 308211

Aside from the price being reasonable, it is the product that was exactly I was looking for. Although installation cost is a little bit higher. It is primarily because the installer has to provide a larger hole to the existing hole intended for the unit. Otherwise, the unit is just perfect for my car...Mazda 3, 2014. 254738

Not too difficult to install, instructions were clear and had helpful pictures. No Drilling or cutting, just dropped the exhaust (only held on by rubber grommets) and it bolted right in. I only used it for a tow hitch mounted bike rack and it was more can enough to hold 4 bikes. It seems like it would be very capable of hauling small trailers from uhaul or the trailers that hold canoe's or kayaks. Your major limitation is going to be the 1.25" opening, and your Mazda's engine power. The tow hitch is rock solid and I would recommend this to anyone looking to make their 2104+ Mazda3 more utilitarian. 249952

Good product, fantastic price! My only gripe, and it's a small one. I wish etrailer would have wrapped the hitch to prevent damage during transport. There are several spots where the powder coating is chipped off and living in the northeast this will just expedite the rust from setting in. 241151

After owning the hitch for a year, I couldnt be happier with the hitch. Having a hitch mounted bike rack is a much better solution than a roof rack. Amazing hitch for the money!

Installed really easy, was truly a bolt on installation. Only needed to temporarily lower the muffler to get it out of the way. For the front bolts, I found it easier to fish the wire through to the access hole in the back, attach the washer and bolt, then pull everything into place. 234867

Took a bit of learning to get it hooked up to the frame of my car but it's working well now. I am sure I could install one in half the time now that I understand how to lower exhaust, and how to fish wire bolts. Watch the videos and it will work. 208027

But these are available in two receiver sizes, both 1-1/4-inch like # 24914 from Draw-Tite and # C11377 from Curt, and also 2-inch like the EcoHitch # 306-X7305 that you referenced in your question.

  • As you mentioned, both the Curt Class I # C11377 and the Draw-Tite Class I # 24912 Trailer Hitches are confirmed to fit your 2015 Mazda 3 Sedan Grand Touring. Both hitches will work with all models of the Mazda 3 Sedan, however the Draw-Tite # 24912, as you referenced, is going to be a considerably easier installation process and will take about half the time as the Curt Trailer Hitch. Also keep in mind that per Curt warranty guidelines, all non-trailer loads such as bike racks and...

  • How to Pick Out the Correct Rise/Drop Euro Ball Mount
  • In order to pick out the correct rise/drop ball mount to use with the Curt Hitch part # C11377 you will need to take a couple measurements. The goal is to have your trailer towed as level as possible. In order to do that the correct rise/drop ball mount needs to be used. To pick out the correct one you will need to measure the distance from the top of your hitch opening to the ground and then with your trailer sitting as level as possible measure from the bottom of the coupler to the...

  • How to Determine if Kuat NV Bike Rack will Fit on 2018 Mazda 3 with Draw-Tite # 24914 Trailer Hitch
  • When we installed the Curt # C11377 on a 2017 Mazda 3 we found that from the center of the hitch pin hole to the rearmost edge of the bumper was 3". In the comparison video that you referenced we say that the center of the pin hole of the Draw-Tite # 24914 sits 4" further back than the Curt. If the measurements are the same for your 2018 Mazda 3 then that would mean the center of the pin hole for the Draw-Tite would be 7" from the rearmost edge of your bumper. If by "NV Core" bike rack...

  • Why Does Curt Say a Stabilizer Strap Is Needed for Some Hitches Carrying Bike Racks
  • Curt specifies that all non-trailer loads - bike racks, cargo carriers and so forth - should be supported with stabilizing straps. Failure to properly support these loads will void your hitch warranty from Curt. For a stabilizer strap you could use the Curt Strap part # 18050. I attached a video that shows how it installs. Basically it attaches to the trunk lid of your vehicle and to the rack and provides additional support so that the weight of the rack over bumps does not jar the hitch...

  • Will Installing and Using a Trailer Hitch Affect the Tire Sensors on a 2014 Mazda 3 Hatchback
  • Installing a trailer hitch such as Curt trailer hitch # C11377 will not affect the tire sensors. However, depending on what you use the hitch for the extra weight in the hitch could cause an inaccurate reading of the tire sensors but should go back to normal (if it happens at all) once the load is removed from the hitch. If you want to use the hitch for a bike rack or cargo carrier and not towing then I recommend going with Draw-Tite trailer hitch # 24914. The reason is that with the...

  • Ground Clearance of the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver on a 2017 Mazda 3
  • When we installed the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C11377 on a similar 2017 Mazda 3 we found that the distance from the ground to the top of the inside edge on the receiver tube is 11-1/2". Since the trailer hitch has a 1-1/4" receiver tube I can estimate that the lowest point on the trailer hitch is going to be around 10" off the ground. Please keep in mind that this distance can very well vary vehicle to vehicle as the tire size and amount of cargo will all play a factor but this...

  • The Curt Trailer Hitch, part # C11377 is designed to fit your 2015 Mazda 3 Hatchback. This is a Class l hitch and it has a 1-1/4 inch receiver opening. A note form Curt states that all non-trailer loads - bike racks, cargo carriers and so forth - should be supported with stabilizing straps like part # 180050.

  • Trailer Hitch and Platform Bike Rack Recommendation for 2014 Mazda 3 Sedan With LED Lights
  • The Curt Class I trailer hitch you referenced, part # C11377, will indeed fit your 2014 Mazda 3 Sedan with LED lighting. I confirmed this with my contact at Curt. So too will the Draw-Tite # 24912. The Curt hitch does require use of their stabzilizing strap # 18050 with any bike rack in order to retain your hitch's warranty coverage. Two helpful articles on hitch installation are linked for you along with the written instructions. The hitches offered for your Mazda 3 are all light-duty...

  • Hitch Receiver Options for a 2017 Mazda 3 Hatchback
  • There are a pair of hitches which are a confirmed fit for your 2017 Mazda 3 hatchback, but unfortunately none of them are 2" hitches. The hitches which fit your vehicle are the Draw-Tite # 24914 and Curt # C11377, each of which are Class I, 1-1/4" hitches. Of the two, I recommend going with the Draw-Tite # 24914 because it will not require the use of stabilization straps when using accessories such as a bike rack.

  • Can the Kuat Transfer 3 Bike Rack be Used in a Curt Class I Hitch
  • Curt Class I hitches don't have the same stops built into them like other manufacturers that prevent Class II accessories from being used in them. So technically yes, the Kuat Transfer 3 part # TS03G would fit in your Curt Class I hitch, but since you can't carry more than 2 bikes on a Class I hitch you would be limited to only carrying 2 bikes. So to answer your question simply, yes the # TS03G will fit your vehicle but can only carry 2 bikes.

  • Installing Curt Class I # C11377 on 2014 Mazda 3
  • We have not yet had the opportunity to install a hitch on a 2013 or 2014 Mazda 3, so we don't have any video footage of a hitch install. If you click on the provided link, you can see a copy of the instructions that includes some full-color photos. I've looked over the install procedure, and it doesn't look too involved. I'll link you to some help articles that will assist with the installation, including how to use a fish wire, and how to lower the exhaust from the exhaust hangers. If...

  • Are Trailer Hitches For 2014 Mazda 3 Different For LED Lights Versus Non-LED Lights
  • The trailer hitches we offer are the same for the 2014 Mazda 3 Hatchback with or without LED lights. The trailer hitch I recommend for your Mazda 3 is the Draw-Tite Sport Frame, part # 24914. This is a Class l trailer hitch and it has a 1-1/4 inch receiver opening. I recommend the Draw-Tite hitch because the Curt hitch, part # C11377 requires the use of stabilizing straps like part # 18050 for all non-trailer items used in the hitch and many times that can be a hassle finding a...
