The instructions are not correct for the muffler shield cutting pattern. You do not need to cut the shield as the tab side of the mount goes around the shield. The length between the tabs on the right and left are off by 1/2" which makes the mounting extremely difficult or nearly impossible. 209539

Was you able to mount the hitch with the 1/2 dimensional problem?Thanks

Yes, but it took substantial effort to squeeze it into place. We used a hydraulic to assist in pushing the hitch onto the frame since the with between the tabs were slightly too narrow by 1/2 inch. I have installed another hitch on a 2015 Golf Sportwagen TDI, the Hidden Hitch 60632 which does fit great but you do need to modify the plastic trim below the bumper to fit. I like the design of the Curt 11411 better than the Hidden Hitch because it does not require the lower fascia modification. However, the Curt install was almost impossible.

Service from etrailer was great but Curtis hitch needs to improve their design. The VW Golf wagon I installed this on requires you to fish the mounting carriage bolts thru the frame. Curtis provides "spacers" with the bolts. The spacers get fished thru with the bolts and are suppose to help secure the hitch to the bumper and supposedly hold the head of the bolt while tightening the nut. The spacers that are used on the vertical mounting are not long enough to hold the bolt from turning and it's impossible to tighten the bolt. The horizontal mounting bolts tighten fine since the horizontal plane of the frame is narrower which keeps the "spacers" from spinning. Screen shot of the spacers and other included parts attached. 278649

I've purchased this trailer hitch and installed it on my VW Sportwagen about a year ago. The cardboard packaging in which it was delivered had received some serious punishment, presumably en route, but the hitch itself was in good order and all the hardware & paperwork was still there. Installation required reasonable D.I.Y. effort, the only hold-up being that the instructions gave the wrong positioning for cutting a square hole in the heat shield for one of the mounting points (probably due to the car being a new model, so this has probably been fixed by now). Overall it is a good quality product at a good price, so I would recommend it. 262465

The installer of the hitch -which was hard to find because of the new model car I had just bought, but quickly available at etrailer.com- was most complimentary of the design and sturdiness of the product. I am very pleased with the product, and how quickly I received it, 217487

The trailer hitch went on my 2015 VW Golf Sportwagen fairly easily as described in the directions with one exception. There was an error as to where to cut the heat shield. I carefully cut the hole as described in the directions and when I went to reinstall it I could immediately see it was incorrect. This would have been the correct hole location if the hitch had attached to the inboard side of the frame rail. This hitch goes over the exhaust and attaches to the outboard side of the frame rail. This requires only a small slit be cut in the heat shield for an ear of the hitch to pass through. the attached photo shows the large square hole described in the directions and the small slit I made which was the only cut necessary. 217424

The fit is perfect. I did have a little trouble with the heat shield. I had to trim it on the car. I had to trim/shave some under coating to fit the hitch but that wasn't the hitches fault. The hitch tucks up nicely. I'm very pleased with it. 217394


Comments

All is well. After putting hitch on and checking bolts a few times I have used my hitch with bike rack almost every day.

Product was complete, and fit perfectly. 2 things - The cut pattern for the heat shield was for an inside mount rather than an outside mount tab. This is a 2 person job, unless there are at least a couple of jacks. My motorcycle jack stand was invaluable; otherwise I could not have done this by myself. 216362

Do you have a question about this Trailer Hitch?


  • How to Determine Hitch Ground Clearance for a 2015 Volkswagen Golf Sportwagen
  • When the Curt hitch part # C11411 is installed on your 2015 Volkswagen Golf Sportwagen it will end up being right underneath the lowest portion of your rear bumper. To determine ground clearance you would need to measure from the bottom of your bumper to the ground and then subtract about 2 inches.

  • Differences between Curt Hitches for 2015 Volkswagen Golf Sportwagen TDI
  • There are two Curt hitches which are a fit for your 2015 Volkswagen Golf Sportwagen TDI. We have the Curt part # C11422 that you referenced which has a concealed crosstube which is going to give you better ground clearance since only the hitch opening hangs down. Then we have the part # C11411 which has a visible crosstube that will give you less ground clearance but it will be a bit easier to install. The # C11411 does not require removing the rear bumper to install. It does require...

Since your intended application is towing all you'll need to add is a ball mount # C45520 and a hitch ball, either 1-7/8-inch # C40001 or 2-inch # C40018. Two helpful hitch installation articles are included for you. In addition to basic hand tools you will need a torque wrench like # ALL944001 to install the hitch to the manufacturer's...

  • Hitch Recommendation and Comparison for a 2015 Volkswagen Golf Sportwagen Diesel TDI
  • We have the Curt Hitch part # C11411. Curt recommends the use of a stabilizer strap like part # 18050 when carrying a non-supported load like a bike rack. The most popular bike rack we carry that has been confirmed to fit this vehicle is the Swagman XTC2 Bike Rack part # S64670. This rack has a ton of positive reviews from our customers who have tried it. Check out the review video I attached for more info. For a ball mount you would want the part # C45520, 1-7/8 inch ball # 19256,...

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation For 2015 Volkswagen Golf SportWagen
  • We do offer a hitch for the 2015 Golf Sportwagen if it is the TDI model and not a 4-wheel drive(R model). The reason it will not work with non-diesel model Golfs is because the exhaust exits the vehicle right in the center, making it impossible for a trailer hitch. The hitch is the Curt Round Tube Receiver, part # C11411. This is a Class l hitch and it has a 1-1/4 inch receiver opening. We do not have a trailer wiring kit available for the 2015, so you may want to check with your...

  • Will Installing a Trailer Hitch on a 2015 Volkswagen Golf SportWagen Reduce Ground Clearance
  • The problem is that you are adding something to the bottom of a vehicle that is low to the ground to begin with. The 2015 Golf is going to be as low if not lower than the Jetta so the potential for the hitch to make contact with the ground on steep grades is still there. With vehicles that are low to the ground there is really no way around this possible issue. There is a hitch option for the 2015 Volkswagen Golf SportWagen, # C11411.

  • Hitch and Trailer Wiring Recommendation for a 2015 Volkswagen Golf SportWagen
  • For your 2015 VW Golf Sportwagen the only option is the Curt part # C11411. The 60362 that you referenced does NOT fit the SportWagen models so I cannot recommend it for you. For a ball mount you would want the part # C45520, for a 1-7/8 inch ball part # 19256 and for a 2 inch ball # 19258. For trailer wiring the harness part # 119250KIT is the correct harness to use. The others you mentioned are not confirmed as fits.

  • Comparing Curt Trailer Hitches for a 2015 Volkswagen Golf Sportwagen
  • We have been recommending Curt trailer hitch # C11411 for the 2015 Volkswagen Golf SportWagen TDI over the other Curt option, # C11422, because it is a little easier to install. Customer seem to agree with us because the review score for C11411 is higher. The primary difference between these 2 hitches is how and where they install. To see the differences I have included links to the installation instructions for both hitches for you. Otherwise they have the same 200 pound tongue weight...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch For 2014 Volkswagen Golf Sportwagen TDI
  • We do offer a trailer hitch that is designed to fit the 2015 TDI. The hitch that will work for you is the Curt Trailer Hitch, part # C11411. This is a Class 1 hitch and it has a 1-1/4 inch receiver opening. A note from Curt states that all non-trailer loads like Bike racks, cargo carriers and so forth should be supported with stabilizing straps like part # 18050. Failure to properly support these loads will void your hitch warranty from Curt. If you're going to be towing a trailer...

  • 2 Inch Trailer Hitch for 2015 Golf Sportwagon TDi 2.0L
  • Trailer hitches are designed by our manufactures and they decide based on the vehicle's weight capacity which sized hitches will be available to the consumer. It looks like your Golf SportWagen isn't rated for much weight which is why the only aftermarket option is a 1-1/4 inch receiver opening. The Class I hitches that are available for your 2015 Volkwagen Golf SportWagen TDi 2.0L are the Curt # C11411 and the Curt # C11422. Both are only rated for 200lbs tongue weight and 2,000lbs...

The hitch offers a 1-1/4-inch receiver opening (like a Class II) and a 200-lb tongue weight (TW) capacity. Installation requires no drilling and mostly basic hand tools.

  • Because of the size and capabilities of the 2015 VW Golf SportWagen there is only a Class I trailer hitch available, # C11411, and it is a fit for TDI models. Class I and II trailer hitches have 1-1/4 inch receivers. There are no 2 inch hitches available and based on the vehicle it is unlikely anyone will make a 2 inch hitch for it. It sounds like you already have an accessory that fits a 2 inch hitch. You could use an adapter, # HTAD, to use the 2 inch accessory with the Class I, 1-1/4...

  • 2015 VW Golf Sportwagen S GAS
  • As of right now the Curt hitch part # C11411 that you referenced only fits the diesel models of your vehicle. I checked with Curt recently and they told me that they just haven't tested the hitch on the gas models yet so they don't know for certain.

  • Why Wouldnt Curt Hitch C11411 Line Up Properly When Installing on a 2015 Volkswagen Golf
  • It sounds like you are referring to the review of the Curt Hitch part # C11411 where a customer had difficulty getting the hitch to line up with the mounting location on his vehicle. During shipping hitches can get bent which can make them difficult to install. What the reviewer most likely should have done is bent the hitch back when he found out it didn't want to line up correctly. As long as there aren't any creases or flaked paint on the hitch you would be just fine.
