Video Transcript for Trailer Hitch Installation - 2016 Volkswagen Golf - Curt

Today on our 2016 VW Golf GTI, we're going to be taking a look at installing the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver Class 1. Part number C11412. This is what it's going to look like once it's installed. You can see it's got a nice high gloss black powder coat finish. It's going to be an inch and a quarter by an inch and a quarter square tube with a half inch hitch pin hole. This is a class one hitch.

It's going to allow for two hundred pounds of tongue weight, which is our downward force, and two thousand pounds of towing weight. Now you want to make sure your vehicle is actually ready to haul that much weight by checking with you owner's manual or your manufacturer. It's got a large flat safety chain loop, both sides. It's going to be a simple bolt on design by dropping your exhaust. You're going to use existing holes with some carriage bolts and plates on the inside of the frame. The hitch does come with a hitch pin and clip, but your draw bars are going to be sold separately. One note on a current hitch, if you're going to be carrying a non-wheeled load such as a cargo carrier or a bike rack, you want to make sure you use stabilization straps.

You can see it's going to tuck up very nice along the bottom side of our fascia on the back of our vehicle giving it that sleek and stylish look. Now our first step for our installation is we're going to have to lower our exhaust system down. We're going to put a safety strap underneath to help support our exhaust as we remove the brackets in the back. We're going to have one bolt on each side that's going to hold up our exhaust system. Take a thirteen millimeter socket and lower those down. Then we can slowly lower down our exhaust.

Now we're going to have two locations where we're going to have our bolts come through on either side to hold our hitch. We're going to have a half inch carriage bolt and a block that's going to fit up inside the frame. Now before we can put our bolt through, you want to check and make sure there's not a bunch of undercoat stuck in position there where the bolt's going to come through. You just take a scraper or a file and just clean out the inside of the hole so it'll slip through a little easier. We can take our fish wire and we're going to push it through the hole, and we'll pull it down out of there, we'll place on our black and thread it on our carriage bolt. We'll press our block up into place followed by our carriage bolt.

We'll use our fish wire attached. Our next one's going to be reverse fish wire, so we're going to slide our block on. We'll thread on our carriage bolt, then we're going to insert the bolt in first followed by the block and pull it right back through the same hole. Slip it inside and just push it back, slide up our block and we'll repeat this process for the other side. Now we'll get somebody to help us, second set of hands. We're going to push our fish wires through the bolt holes and feed our hitch up through. Take our flange nut, start it onto our bolt, do the same thing to the next bolt. You want to keep pressure on this just so it doesn't slip back up inside the hole. Just round them up finger tight for now and then take a look, make sure you got your hitch all centered up. Now to tighten up our bolts, we're going to use a nineteen millimeter socket. We'll repeat that for both sides. Now we can torque down our bolts to the specifications listed in our instructions, and we'll repeat that for the other side. Our last step is going to be tighten up our safety strap, put our exhaust back up into place, and we can reinstall our bolts. We can go ahead and re-secure our exhaust hangers and remove our safety strap. That's going to complete our installation. That's going to do it for our look at and install of the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver Class 1, part number C11412 on our 2016 VW Golf GTI.

I highly recommend this hitch--highly polished, compact, sturdy, looks good, holds bike rack as advertised. Given the salt in the air where I live, I am glad it looks like it will withstand the weather well. It tucks in well out of sight under the car. I have a 2018 Volkswagon GTI. Installed in two and a half hours. What I really like is the location of the hitch raises the bike rack more than my prior hitch, so I have less scratching against the street when I go in dips and driveways. Still some scratching of the bike rack, but much less, and the hitch is not getting scratched at all. Excellent hitch. Worth the money. 573672

It fit our 2015 GTi perfectly. Holds our Kuat 2-bike bike rack fine. The rack is a lot more sturdy with the tether, so I definitely recommend that. As far as installation goes, we had a local shop install it for us. They had some trouble fishing the bolts through the frame and lining everything up. But in the end it worked out great. 426643

Very good quality, I wasn’t sure if it would fit my 2018 golf tsi because of the new rear bumper and exhaust but it bolted up nicely. I was able to install it alone by resting one end of the hitch on my knee while I bolted up the other end. 10/10 would recommend! 552958

I installed the hitch without help using a bottle jack and a small piece of plywood to support the hitch. The only issue I had and it was minor, was inserting the stove bolts through the opening in the underbody. I had to grind a small amount of metal from the bolt head to be able to pass it through the opening. The video provided by etrailer was invaluable. The hitch looks fantastic on my 2017 VW GTI. 492539

This hitch fit perfectly on my 2017 vw gti. Took me about an hour and a half because I couldn't find the right extension. Make sure you have lots of different extensions, a deep socket set, and a second set of hands and installation should go smooth. Just take your time and make sure to torque everything down properly. All in all I couldn't be happier with the fit and finish. Matches my new car perfectly! 321960

Works for my GTI 2015. Had to have extra hands when lifting the hitch to install but a novice can install this model. The required tools aren't even necessary. Just need a basic 13mm. Also watch the video online for further help. 546571

Just finished installing the hitch on our '15 VW GTI. Very pleased with the quality of the product. The instructions were excellent and the install took me 43 minutes total. Not bad, I am a slow handyman at best, but this was a very simple project. Only minor fiddling. The fish wire instructions were spot on and they worked perfectly. I left them on as I guided the hitch into place to prevent pushing the bolts back into the frame. A helping hand holding the hitch in place while I put the nuts on would have been nice, but I got by without it. 227826

Awesome! I was reluctant to order this trailer hitch Being the fact that my GTI is a 2015. But after watching the Video I placed the order. The packaging is great Minus the Tape that they wrapped the assembly parts. Honestly it took longer to get the tape and parts off the hitch Than it took to install it. I installed it without jacking The car up or lift. I had plenty of room to maneuver and It's light enough to be a one man job. It took 20 min Start to finish. Hitch is solid and you can barely see it. I highly recommend this to any 2015 GTI owner. 175630

I have only good things to say about your trailer hitches and wiring harnesses. Installation of both was simple -albeit tedious- and both perform very well in my 2015 VW Golf TDI. I mainly use it for airplane towing, but works well for trailer towing. I would highly recommend these products. Thank you for your help. 510104

This is the third hitch I've installed this year, and by far the easiest. I like that the VW Golf has a bolt to drop the exhaust, rather than fighting the rubber mounts off of the hooks. Holes line up very easily. If it weren't for me having to stop and find a 3/4" socket for the (4) bolts, it would have been a 15 minute job! Very nice hardware as well. This is my seventh hitch from etrailer.com, and I could not be happier! 445168

Please ask Curt to start using vinyl labels on their products, or place the label on the mounting flange where its out of sight. The current labels are cheap paper ones and they are a bear to get off. Please share this feedback with the manufacturer as it takes almost 30 minutes with adhesive removal to remove. Frustrating as its in plain view when installed. Otherwise, great product and easy install! 272779

I just installed this hitch. My daughter backed the car onto a pair of ramps. I removed a 13mm bolt - one on either side of the muffler to lower it. While the description may be a bit daunting, the actual doing is a snap, to fish wire the first two bolts -- this was the only part even the least bit tricky because of the weather proofing reducing the size of the frame opening ever so slightly making pushing the bolts up into the frame opening the first time a bit of a challenge. Once the bolt is up inside the frame, pulling it back down through the spacer and into position is a snap. Once all four bolts are in place, man handle (had a blanket on the pavement, and my teenage daughter had one end and I had the other) the hitch into place, and quickly hand-thread the nuts -- easy peasy. Carefully tighten the nuts alternately keeping the load upward on the hitch while doing so, then finalize with 60 ft-lbs all around and finally the specified 110 ft-lbs, and reinstall the two 13mm bolts for the muffler hangers, and PRESTO, it's done. No cutting -- perfect clearance. Highly recommend. 245713

This works great. I'm by no means a mechanic, but I had access to a lift and a great set of tools. That being said, installation was easy and took 20 min with the excellent instructions. The receiver is inconspicuous when my bike rack isn't in it and works great. Customer service was extremely helpful and friendly. 178233


Comments

Michael,It looks like you are using a 1UpUSA bike rack. Does that require the use of an extension for the receiver so the rack will clear bumper? It looks to me like an extension is not needed, just hoping someone with direct experience could confirm.Thanks, Kent

2017 Volkswagen Golf


I installed a hitch on my 2017 Volkswagen TSI this weekend. First I rode the rear up on some patio blocks to give me more room to work. Only hard part was fish wiring the bolts. The access hole was very, very tight, even after scraping away all the insulation. I had to file and file, bang a bit with a hammer and screw driver, file and file, tried using pliers of some sort, filed some more, and then finally the bolts went through. Needed a second person for about 5 minutes to help left the hitch onto the bolts. I bought a torque wrench (one of the cheaper ones), but it didn't seem to work. At first I thought I just wasn't tightening the bolts enough, because I wasn't getting any sort of indication from the wrench (it was supposed to make a clicking sound). But then I set the wrench to a really low torque setting and still didn't get any indication. I think I'll just rent a torque wrench next week and recheck my work. Any chance I over-tightened things? 408182


Comments

Robert, I do not believe you over-tightened the bolts, but as you suspected, it sounds like you had a faulty torque wrench. You may rent a heavy-duty torque wrench from your local auto parts store.

Great product, easy to install but the instructions had to be modified. I have a 2015 GTI SE and not sure why but my frame did not have the same holes (only on the passenger side)necessary to pass the washer and bolt through to the holes used to bolt the hitch to the car. I had to remove a bolt and bracket that I think held the rear window washer fluid to the frame. Once that was undone, I could pull the bracket back far enough to pass the hardware through. You can see the bracket (which hides the hole) through the tire on the passenger side. The hitch looks great, which I was of course worried about, and you have to watch the clearance, which is a problem with any hitch :) BTW - I only use this hitch for my Kuat Sherpa bike rack. I did not want to go with a roof rack due to the noise, gas mileage efficiency , and ascetics. Very happy with the product 218945

This trailer hitch is great! It was easy to install- etrailer has great you tubes to help and has been a great addition. I took a cross country trip and used a tray off the hitch for camping gear that worked out great. I keep coming back to etrailer for supplies they carry. Their prices are the best and they ship fast. 472202

I have a 2016 Audi A3 etron and this product fit with only a minimal modification. As the etron and eGolf share the same frame, I had hoped that the frame bolts and muffler piping would accommodate the hitch and it did! However, dropping the rear bumper is the only practical means to install the frame bolts. Only a slight modification to the muffler heat shield on the driver side was required (cut very small corner to accommodate the support bracket). No other modifications are required and it turned out very nice! I had this work done by a custom auto shop and it took 2.5 hours to remove the bumper, install the hitch, and remount the bumper. It could probably be done by a car enthusiast with more skills and confidence than a typical owner. 306465


Comments

Thank you for your note, Laura! I am very happy with it. It was a bit difficult—and a bit of a gamble— to find the right hitch given this was a new Audi model. After some research I had enough data to believe this hutch would work. I’m delighted it did and wanted to share my findings so others might benefit. I use it nearly daily to with my 1Ups bike rack. They go together beautifully. I know that’s beyond the scope of your question, but again I’m most pleased.

I installed the Curt C11412 hitch on a 2017 VW GTI Autobahn. It fit perfectly and is unobtrusive in place. Installation is easy, provided you follow the instructions carefully. No drilling is necessary. The only tricky part is feeding the retaining plates and lag screws through the holes in the frame rails using the included fishwires. I recommend watching the video to see how this is done. Also, you will need to insert the lag screws head first through the slots in the frame rails; the heads won't fit through the slots if you insert the threaded end first. Total installation took me about an hour. It would have taken less time if I had had someone helping me. As always, eTrailer was great. 362579

Got a call the day after my order stating that my item was on back order and would be delivered ASAP. It happens although it would have been nice to know that it was out of stock upon the order page. But it got delivered safely along with the other attachements. I had it installed by my mechanic -not having torque tool - and it was done in less than an hour for $45! He said that he was grateful for the (your) video that I supplied him. The part fits. seems sturdy enough for 2 lines with my Yakima Double-Down rack. The hitch is fairly low to the ground but I'll see how this affects my on-and-off driveways! The leveling bars are helpful - not perfect in engineering - but helpful in leveling the bikes on the rack. I will also use straps to secure the Yakima to the car somehow. Great job in communications by eTrailer and I highly recommend their sales and service. 233529

Did you have the car lifted when you installed this? I live in SLO and have the same 2015 GTI. I am about to order it, but wanted to make sure that it would be something I could do at home.

We recommend using a set of ramps or a commercial lift if available for installing a hitch. Especially for this vehicle since it is a low profile, using a set of ramps, (with the front wheels properly stabilized) or a lift will make the installation process much easier.

It just shouldn't be this easy to install a hitch receiver on your car. It took more time to wait for the exhaust to cool than to install it. You only need a second person when it's time to line up and bolt in the part. 526640

This is the second Curt hitch I've installed, the first on this particular vehicle. The installation video and instructions were very clear. The fish-wire technique is super easy. Installation time was probably 30 minutes. I did use a dremel grinder instead of a file at certain points, which helped things go faster. Would definitely purchase again. 582842

Purchase and installation were straightforward and per the instructions provided. The installation videos and product review videos were great for tips/tricks. I do have one fitment issue with my particular bike rack (Kuat Sherpa v 1.0) where the safety detent retention pin holes do not quite line up to allow for a normal retention pin diameter size. I've purchased a narrower pin with pivoting retention clip that serves the same purpose but doesn't provide the additional stability of the original pin. I didn't have this issue on another 1-1/4" hitch receiver but it could be that this product has a higher tolerance to variance between manufacturing batch-to-batch. 578524

I made my decision to by this product based on price, installation difficulty level, and amount of instructions/media available to help with the installation. All 3 points for this product checked at 5 stars. It took around 2 hours from the beginning to the end. Wire fishing and reverse fishing was new learning for me. All in all love it, carries 2 bikes without any issue. 492443

Perfect fit for my 2016 GTI SE, and easy to install. Beforehand I was a bit concerned about ground clearance. But this hitch is nice and tight with the car (as high as it possibly could be). The receiver only extends about 1" below the muffler height. This was my 3rd time ordering from etrailer and I highly recommend them. Quick shipping, great instructions, all mounting hardware (and fishwire) included, and a great price! 490423

The etrailer.com package arrived quickly on the predicted date along with a notification of delivery. Since I don't currently own ramps or a socket, I elected to have it professionally installed for about the price I would have spent on the missing tools. It took them about 15 minutes to install it. The C11412 hitch fits my 2017 VW GTI Sport perfectly, and looks great (and unobtrusive), too. I find it to be a great bargain. 471295

You cannot ask for a better product. Every promise made by etrailer was fulfilled. I use this trailer hitch everyday to cary my bikes around. If you have a VW Golf, you can use this hitch to haul 2 full suspension mountain bikes in a tray bike rack with ease. High recommended. 467342

We installed this hitch on my Son's GTI. Truthfully, this was the third etrailer hitch we've installed in the last few years and the first one that didn't go as smooth as silk. We did have to do a little filing on a couple holes in the VW, which is never fun. That's why I only gave a 4 star rating. Other than that, the hitch is fine. I don't hesitate to recommend etrailer. 456779

Do you have a question about this Trailer Hitch?


  • Recommended Trailer Hitch for a 2017 Volkswagen GTI

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch for 2018 VW Golf GTI Autobahn
  • I do have a solution for you, however the Draw-Tite Sportframe Trailer Hitch Receiver # 24925 referenced in your question is not confirmed to fit your 2018 VW GTI Autobahn. For your vehicle, I instead recommend the Curt Class I Trailer Hitch Receiver # C11412. This Class I hitch is confirmed to fit your VW and will use existing holes in the vehicle's frame for a no-drill installation. It will provide you with a 1-1/4 inch receiver opening and it has a 200 pound tongue weight capacity....

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch For 2015 Volkswagen Golf GTI
  • We do have a trailer hitch that is designed to fit your 2015 Volkswagen GTI. It is the Curt Trailer Hitch, part # C11412. This is a Class l hitch and has a 1-1/4 inch receiver opening. A note from Curt states that all non-trailer loads - 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 need a 2 inch trailer hitch ball I recommend part...

  • Trailer Hitch that Fits 2016 Volkswagen Golf GTI
  • For the 2016 Volkswagen Golf GTI we have the Curt hitch part # C11412 that is listed as a fit that would work well. Currently it is the only option for the GTI models so it would be your only option that we offer. I attached an install video for you to check out too.

  • Availability of a Trailer Hitch for a 2018 Volkswagen Golf GTI Hatchback
  • Yes we do! The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C11412 has been confirmed by Curt to fit your 2018 Volkswagen Golf GTI. This is a Class I trailer hitch with a 1-1/4" receiver for light duty applications. Please note that if you plan to use this to carry a bike rack or cargo carrier then the Curt warranty requires that you use a support strap like part # 18050 to help stabilize the unsupported weight. Also, if you plan on using this trailer hitch to carry bikes then you will be limited...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch for a 2015 VW GTI Autobahn 4 Door
  • There is currently one hitch that we offer for your 2015 VW GTI Autobahn. It's the Curt hitch # C11412. It is custom fit for your GTI but it will be visible when not in use because the receiver tube is flush with the crossbar. This is a Class-I hitch and the maximum gross trailer weight is 2,000 pounds and tongue weight maximum is 200 pounds. The trailer hitches # 24925 (Draw-Tite) and # 60362 (Hidden Hitch, no longer available) you referenced fit a 2015 VW Golf and not your 2015 VW...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch for 2017 VW Golf GTI
  • You are correct, the Curt Class I Round Tube Receiver Hitch # C11412 referenced in your question is confirmed to fit your 2017 Volkswagen Golf GTI model. This is custom-fit for your vehicle and will use existing holes in the vehicle frame for a no-drill installation. This Class I hitch has a 200 pound tongue weight capacity, a 2,000 pound towing limit and will provide you with a 1-1/4 inch receiver opening. All of the necessary hardware is included.

  • Trailer Hitch with Best Ground Clearance for a 2016 Volkswagen Golf
  • On your 2016 Volkswagen Golf Curt trailer hitch # C11412 will have the receiver slightly below the rear fascia. If you measured up from the ground to the bottom of the rear fascia and then subtracted 1-3/4 inches that would be approximately where the bottom of the hitch would be. Draw-Tite hitch # 24925 would be the better option. It is tucked up a little higher compared to the Curt hitch so I recommend going with it. For a bike rack you will need one that is compatible with a Class...

  • Hitch Fit for a 2016 Volkswagen GTI
  • I can help you identify the right hitch for your 2016 VW GTI. The hitch that fits the 2016 GTI is the Curt Class I hitch # C11412, not the Draw-Tite # 24904 you were looking at, which is great news because that hitch required some trimming but this Curt hitch does not. To install the Curt hitch # C11412, you will have to temporarily lower the exhaust while installing the hitch but there is not drilling or cutting to be done. It's important to note that Curt recommends the use of a...

  • Hitch Fits for 2017 Volkswagen Golf GTI
  • For your 2017 Volkswagen Golf GTI we have two hitches available that are a confirmed fit. We have the Curt part # C11412 and the Draw Tite part # 24925. The Curt has a much simpler install but the Draw Tite doesn't require a stabilizer strap when carrying a non-supported load like the Curt does. I attached an install video for the Curt hitch for you to check out as well.

  • Trailer Hitch and Wiring for a 2016 Volkswagen Golf GTI
  • For your 2016 Volkswagen Golf GTI I recommend Curt trailer hitch # C11412. This is a Class I trailer hitch rated for 200 pounds tongue weight and 2,000 pounds gross trailer weight. 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 also says you have to use stabilization strap # 18050...

  • Does Installing Trailer Hitch on 2016 Volkswagen Golf Void Warranty
  • When you install an aftermarket part on your vehicle like a trailer hitch in this case, you are protected by the Magnuson–Moss Warranty Act. This act states, in part, that unless the installation and the part caused a problem then the warranty cannot be voided. I recommend looking it up online. I attached an install video for this hitch for you to check out as well.

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for a 2016 Volkswagen Golf GTI
  • For your 2016 Volkswagen Golf GTI the Curt hitch part # C11412 that you referenced has been confirmed as a fit and would work well for carrying a bike rack. Curt requires the use of their stabilizer strap part # 18050 when using their hitch to carry a non-supported load like a bike rack. I attached a review video for you to check for the strap as well. The most popular bike rack we carry that has been confirmed to fit this vehicle is the Swagman XTC2 Bike Rack part # S64670. This...
