Video Transcript for Trailer Hitch Installation - 2010 Mazda 3

Today on this 2010 Mazda 3 we are going to install part number 11383 from Curt. This is what the hitch looks like on the vehicle to pick out accessories such as a ball mount, a bicycle rack, or a cargo carrier. From the top of the receiver opening down to the ground is going to be 10-1/ 4 inches and from the center of the hitch pin out to the edge of the bumper is going to be 3-1/ 4 inches. Next we will show you how it gets installed on the vehicle. The first thing we need to do is remove these two bolts that hold the bumper fascia in place. We will need to flip the hitch behind the tow straps and put everything back together once it gets installed. 00:37

Next we will show you what holes are going to be used for attaching the hitch. We are going to use this one, this one, and this hole located towards the inboard side of the frame. What is going to happen is we are going to install the block and this carriage bolt and we are going to fish wire it from the outside in and we are going to use this as an access hole and we are going to pull our parts through and out the hole here. We will slide the block on first. Push that on inside and then we will thread our bolt in. Push that in and pull it on through and one more time with this hole and then to the next one. You know you have got the blocks right inside the frame as long as the bolts are going straight down and not sitting at an angle like that or anything. As long as they are going vertical we are in good shape. 01:40

We are done with the driver side of the vehicle and we will repeat the same exact process back over on the passenger side. At this point we can start installing the hitch on the vehicle and it is going to be a good idea to have an extra set of hands to help hold it up there and get one of the bolts started in the hitch and then attach the nut. The driver side is done, lets repeat for the passenger side. With all of the hardware installed we will snug down the bolts and then torque them down as specified in the instructions. With the hitch installed and torqued down we will reinstall the straps that go from the bumper fascia to their mounts on the body. With that, that will finish it for our install and there you have it for part number 11383 from Curt.

I just installed this on my 2012 Mazda 3 Hatchback and I am glad that I went with this model. It looks very well built and rock solid. I like that it fits tucked up under the car and doesn't hang low. The only thing that is visible is the receiver itself. I plan on using this for a bike rack and I am happy with this purchase and plan on getting a bike rack as well. It will be nice to have my back seat and cargo area available again. 512927

I have had the hitch for a year now and my review has not changed. It still looks good and works good.

This hitch went on easily on my 2012 Mazda 3 Hatchback. The instructions were easy to follow, bolts lined up perfect, etc. It took about 45 minutes to install by a friend who does auto mechanic work on the side. Shipping was fast and everything needed was in the box. Price was on par with most other places. 49731

The hitch is very sturdy, well designed to fit behind the bumper, and the bolt holes fit exactly as designed. Further the gloss black powder coat paint finish looks to be extremely durable. The time for the installation will depend on how good you are using the fishwire to pull the spacer and the bolts into position. Five out of the six went pretty easy, but one bolt was a hassle. The bolts go through easy, but the square holed spacer bar which just slides onto the fishwire (not screwed onto the pigtail) is tricky. It has a tendency to turn perpendicular before entering from the cavity of the access hole into the longitutinal frame piece. Put a small piece of tape (small enough so it can be pulled free with a tug) to hold the spacer bar in line with the fishwire so it can get into the longitutinal frame. Without that, the tendency is for the spacer piece to turn perpendicular preventing it from entering the box frame. Also, if the bolt is pulled into the spacer piece before it enters the main frame, it just won't go any further. Keep a good distance between the spacer and the bolt on the fishwire. You may try pulling the spacer into place and then returning the fishwire to get the bolt. Once your bolts are in place on the frame, attach several inches of cloth tape (or masking tape) to make sure you don't lose them up into the frame when you're positioning the hitch. Since the bolts are very long, your 11/16th's socket must be a deep socket to fully tighten the nuts. The rearmost bolt is directly over the hitch bar, so it is best tightened with a box wrench (there's lots of room for one on that bolt). The half hour install time might be possible if you did these all day long, but for a first timer including setting up jackstands, lights, planning, learning bolt fishwire technique, giving helping canine occassional acknowledgement, and beer breaks, you're looking at a 90 minutes if the bolts go smoothly to 3 hours or so it they give you a hard time. Persistance WILL pay off, if you do have a problem with the fishwire. Positioning the hitch and getting the nuts onto the bolts is not bad at all. In addition to the deep socket (11/16ths) you also do need a good extension on your wratchet wrench. Once the job is complete, you'll have a sturdy, nicely finished hitch that should easily last as long as the car. Spring for the optional rubber plug for a more finished look and as shin protector. 14070

While I did have a problem (mismarked hitch), the staff at etrailer.com were patient, helpful and commited to resolving it. They spent a good deal of time with me on the phone to identify the problem and send me the correct part. Free return shipping, no hassles. As for the Curt hitch, it is top notch. Good fit and finish, appears to be a really well designed and sturdy. I would highly recommend both the Curt hitch and etrailer.com. 491298


Comments

It fits and functions perfectly. This car has a very low ground clearance and the hitch is tucked in as close as it could be designed yet still be functional without modifying the bumper. That being said, I have a very steep driveway so, when I have the bike rack mounted, it scrapes going in or out of the garage. It’s to be expected and is no fault of the hitch. I would purchase again.

The hitch is perfect and fits like a glove. Installation is probably a two-person job because the tailpipe on the Mazda 3 is a little difficult to get around. The fishing method for getting the bolts through the frame is easier than it sounds. Thread the bolts onto the spring-like coil first, drop the rectangular washer on and then fish the other end into the access hole and out of the bolt hole in the frame. Do all 6 and then have someone help you press the hitch into place. Do the driver side first so that you have freedom to move around the exhaust pipes. I jacked up one rear side of the car to make it easy to work under. Put blocks of wood or a jack stand under the car as a backup. My warning harness went in easily, but took a little thought about routing. The wires on the driver side are a little short, so I had to mount the junction box next to the car's jack in the side access compartment. Would like to have had another 6 inches of wires on that side. Overall, awesome products. Shipping was reliable. I'd order again. 85002

Easy installation with the included guide wires. I used hairpin hitch clips to hold the bolts in place (you do not want to push the bolts up into the frame rail when putting the hitch up into position) till I got the nuts started since this was a one man job . Sara in customer service was a great help. 643896

VERY nice product. Nice packing and quick delivery. The only thing missing with this order was a second set of hands (little joke inserted). I ordered the hitch and harness. Was a bit of a task feeding the bolts through the holes but was successful. The Harness connected crazy easy. All in all, GREAT company to deal with and equally nice product. If I had 3 thumbs, I would give them all 3 thumbs up. 609878

Purchased this hitch for my 2011 Mazda 3 hatchback and the shipping came with the wrong hitch even though the sticking label said it's for Mazda 3 HB. I guess someone returned this hitch and the receiving department put the wrong sticer on it. I tried to mount it uncessfully of course twice. Then contacted etrailer and they sent out another one that worked perfect. They issued the RMA for the wrong hitch. Proving the hitch was wrong was a pain since you can only send images and things, but at the end, I'm happy with the result and the service etrailer provided. 510003

Looks to be a high quality unit that fit perfectly on my Mazda 3 hatchback. Installation was a little more difficult than the installation video might let on in that fishing the bolts through the frame required patience and a bit of luck. My advice is to picture the path the wire needs to travel and pre-bend it to a shape that will get the tip near the outlet hole. Once you do that, your chances of success go way up! Overall it fits well and looks great! 412410

Excellent hitch, product was shipped the day after I ordered, arrived quickly and in perfect condition. Getting the bolts fished through the frame took a little effort, but very doable with the videos they have on website. One simple trick that I believed helped me was I temporarily put a hitch pin on all 6 bolts after they were put in place. This kept the bolts from being pushed back into the frame while setting the hitch in place. Once I was able to get all 6 nuts threaded onto the bolts, I pulled the hitch pins off, then fully tightened the nuts. I'm positive this saved at least 2 bolts from being pushed back into the frame and lost. Would definitely recommend this company. 364070

Mazdaspeed 3. I bought this for my Mazdaspeed 3 not entirely sure it would fit with the dual exhaust. The only snag I ran into was that the passenger side exhaust was a tight fit. Other then that, a simple and easy installation. The exhaust did NOT need to be removed. 158184

My new Curt Hitch arrived at my home in just a few days and came with everything needed for the install. I did the install myself in my driveway using car ramps, and the hitch fit like a glove with no issues. I referred to the online video instructions as well as the printed instructions. Very pleased with the fit and the service, and will certainly refer friends to etrailer.com. 151570

This Curt trailer hitch receiver fit my 2013 Mazda 3 5door perfectly. I did use a hydraulic lift to make installation a little easier. It took a bit longer than I thought it would to fish the bolts through the holes but I eventually got them. I also had to drop my exhaust down a little bit to get the hitch on, but that was easy to do. I am very satisfied with all aspects of my purchase, product, and installation. 129464

it fits perfect! looks great. i used my car jack to hold one side of it in place while i bolted in the other side. fish hook works great...but had a hard time getting the wire off the bolt each time...probably user error. this bumper fits absolutely perfectly! SUPER fast shipping and well packaged! 110630

Outstanding product. I actually installed this bad boy by myself with the occasional hand from my well intentioned son. I would suggest using a c-clip or zip tie to hold the bolts in place while positioning the trailer hitch so as not to lose the bolts back into the frame. Took about an hour, but I am very stoked. Also, watch the video! Great company, fast shipping and I will highly recommend to my biking buddies. Happy Trails. 87162

I never knew a trailer hitch could be attached to my Mazda. I have a 2010 hatchback. I plan on ordering the hitch. Can you tell me where you got the actual bike rack? Also, does it hold two bikes? Lastly, how does it hold up sagging, etc.... Thanks so much.

Hello Paul,The bike rack can be purchased from this company etrailer. The make and model is the Kuat Sherpa. It holds 2 bikes and weighs 27 lbs. It does not sag. I was going to go with the Kuat NV but it is much heavier and by the time you put 2 35lbs bikes on the rack you are well over 100 lbs. The max tongue weight for the hitch that I purchased is 200 lbs so in the interest of not getting too close to the max. I opted for the lighter one. I am very pleased with the whole setup and loading and unloading the bikes is a breeze.I hope this helps.Cheers, Glynn

I received my trailer hitch very quickly from the time I place the internet order. My hitch came perfectly packaged for shipping and came to my door in pristine condition. The install was effortless, didn't even need to jack up my Mazda 3 to install!! And the instructional vid was very helpful. I am glad I bought from E-Trailer, because of the great product and service. 78670

Product arrived in excellent condition, well packaged, and all the parts and accessories were neatly packed and protected. Installed in my 2013 Mazda 3 in minutes.

Overall, I am a very satisfied customer. I will definitely buy from Etrailer again. 72134

The hitch arrived about 1/2 inch bent and didn't line up with the bolts. It took a few minutes to straighten using a vise. I was very concerned having the bolts fall back into the frame as it would be near impossible to get out so after fishing each bolt through the hole I installed a nut hand tight. This allowed me to make sure the hitch holes lined up with the bolts without pushing the bolts into to frame. I then propped up one end of the hitch on a cardboard box and removed all 3 nuts on the other side. I carefully pushed the hitch in place and hand tightened the 3 nuts. Then repeated on the other side. The whole installation took less than 2 hours without any help. The hitch went on a 2012 Mazda 3 hatchback. I've been using for a few weeks and it's working perfect. 56823

perfect fit, self-install not bad.... be SURE to watch the video first, and fish the bolts in starting with the ones furthest from the access hole toward the front of car and pop the washer blocks down the wire before pulling the bolts in or they get stuck. Its not as easy as the pro installer makes it look. ;) took me about an hour. We should all write Mazda and ask them to use weld-nuts in future years! 35138

Installation went well except one bolt pushed back up into the frame when lining up the hitch holes on the passenger side (tail pipe gets in the way on that side). Here is a tip. Go to your local box store and purchase 7/16 inch retainer clips (they are a 3/4-circle washer-like clip commonly used to secure wheels to axles). After you fish the bolt(s) throught the frame, clip the retainers on the bolt as close as you can to the frame. These will prevent the bolts from pushing back up when mounting the hitch. 24385

  • Recommended Bike Rack for Carbon Fiber Bike on 2012 Mazda 3 Hatchback
  • All three bike racks you mentioned are quality racks but the best option for your 2012 Mazda 3 hatchback is the RockyMounts MonoRail Solo 2 Bike Platform Rack # RKY10003; it will give you the best combination of ease of use and compatibility with your Mazda. The MonoRail is a wheel-mount bike rack so your brand new carbon fiber bike will be totally protected from any scratches - none of the rack is going to touch the frame. It is only 37 lbs which is the same weight as the Kuat Transfer...

I have included a link to the installation instructions for you and a link to a video showing a typical installation. This hitch includes the hitch pin and clip. If you are doing some towing, you can use ball # 19256 (1-7/8 inch diameter) or # 19258 (2 inch diameter), to go with the recommended drawbar # 3594.

  • I have a great solution for a 3-bike carrier for your 2010 Mazda 3 hatchback, but the only available hitches for your vehicle are Class I which is limited to only carrying up to 2 bikes. So what you'd want is a trunk mounted bike rack that can carry 3 bikes like the Saris SuperBones part # SA802 which has been tested on your vehicle and confirmed as a fit and gives you a great way to carry up to 3 bikes. This uses straps to attach itself to the rear door of your vehicle and gives you...

  • Recommended Bike Rack For a 2011 Mazda 3 Hatchback To Be Tilt Down With Bikes Attached

This is actually one of my favorite bike racks because you can walk your bike up into the carrier without having to lift them in the air as much. For a trailer hitch you will want to use...

The Draw-Tite and Hidden Hitch models do have the safety notch in them that prevent the insertion of a Class II accessory. This is so you will not accidentally overload the hitch. The Curt hitch does not have this feature. This notch and the capacity are what makes a Class I hitch a Class I. As you have said neither the Draw-Tite nor Hidden Hitch models require the use...

  • I have a solution for you. You would want the Curt hitch part # C11383 as it will allow a Class II and up bike rack like your # Y02458 to install in it. However, you will need to be sure to only carry up to two bikes with it and you will have to use a stabilizer strap like the part # 18050 as this is a Curt hitch requirement. I attached a review video for the Curt strap for you to check out as well as an install video for the hitch.

This rack is designed to fit 1-1/4 inch hitches like this and we have found works very well in them.

You should note though that when you use a hitch adapter like this you cut the capacity of the hitch it is installed in by 50 percent. So you'd only have a 100 lb tongue weight capacity.

  • Difference between C113833 and C11383 For a 2012 Mazda Speed3
  • You are correct, the only difference between the Curt Hitch # C113833 and the Curt Hitch # C11383 is that the # C113833 comes with a ball mount and the # C11383 does not. Either of these hitches would work well for you as long as you have a hatchback, if you have a sedan you would want a # C11393 or a # C113933 if you want a ball mount as well.

  • Trailer Hitch for a 2013 Mazda 3 Hatchback that is Compatible with Yakima RidgeBack Bike Rack
  • The Yakima RidgeBack, # Y02457, will not be the best fit on Draw-Tite trailer hitch # 24843. The rack will work with Curt trailer hitch # C11383 for your 2013 Mazda 3 (hatchback). With the Curt hitch and any non-trailer load, such as a bike rack, Curt requires the use of a stabilization strap, # 18050. The strap reduces some of the stress on the hitch.

  • Brophy ball mount # BM96 has a 5-1/2 inch rise so that will get you 1/2 inch closer. You would not add the height of the ball though because the coupler on the trailer covers the ball so the ball height is a non-factor. The only other thing you can do is lower the height of the trailer. If you do think lowering the trailer in the back is the way to go then you may be able to use an over/under conversion kit if: The trailer leaf spring stack is currently mounted above the axles The...

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for a 2011 Mazda Speed3
  • There are trailer hitches that will fit the 2011 Mazdaspeed 3, but the Draw-Tite # 24842 will not fit. Instead, you can use the Curt Trailer Hitch, # 11383. This hitch comes with a ball mount, hitch pin and clip. I have included a link to the installation instructions and a link to a video showing a typical installation. If you plan on doing some towing, for a ball you can use # 19256 (1-7/8 inch diameter) or # 19258 (2 inch diameter). For trailer wiring, use T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness,...

  • Best Bike Rack for Men's, Women's, and Kid's Bike with 1-1/4 Inch Hitch
  • Since you have both women's and kid's bikes, I recommend a platform style bike rack because this way you won't need a bunch of adapter bars. I really like the Kuat Transfer 3 Bike Platform Rack part # TS03G because it's super lightweight at only 52 lbs and you can walk your bikes right up into the rack so you don't have to lift them up and over a center post. The wheel mount design will be the most compatible with the women's and kid's bikes. It is also currently inside of your budget....
