It is finally installed, but not without more effort than necessary. The main problems were the bolts shipped with the hitch were too short for my sportwagen which has parking assist and back up, cross traffic sensors. The cross traffic sensors are bolted to the bumper and add several mm thickness - the bolts supplied were not long enough to thread into the bumper frame. The second problem was the bottom holes (slots). The outer slots were not properly spaced and required reaming to allow bolts to be threaded. All this made the installation more tedious and longer than needed. 268164

Curt behind bumper hitch for 2015 Golf Sportwagen TDI. I thought this would be very difficult, but turns out it is not that difficult to get the rear bumper off. I would have completed the job in two hours, but a wire loom somehow got behind the bumper and made it bulge out, so had to redo the right side which took another half hour. Make sure you have some short T-15 and T-25 torx with a small ratcheting hex tool for the wheel well fasteners or use some needle nose vise grips. May want to buy 3 new T-15 plastic assemblies from VW, they plug in a square hole to hold the bottom of the bumper and don't seem to be multi-use. Anyways, go for it, it is definitely doable. 391084

I like that this hitch does not require any cutting of the rear bumper, and it tucks up nicely under the bumper. However, I wish that Curt would pay attention to all the reviews about poor fit. 3 of the 7 bolt holes don't line up with the bolt holes on the car. If you don't have the ability to enlarge elongated holes in steel, stay away from this hitch. The instructions are pathetic. Fortunately, there are several great videos on YouTube. You WILL need a helper to hold the bumper and crash bar in place while trying to get bolts into place. Speaking of bolts, the supplied bolts seem too short until you get everything torqued. Then they are the exactly correct length. I would recommend buying a longer bolt to help get the hitch and crash bar into place. The hitch arrived nicely packaged by etrailer. 252564

Installed my hitch today on my 2018 VW Golf Alltrack. Took about 3 hrs for the install as I didn't take off the wheels which made reinstalling the screws in the wheel well (I have mud flaps on mine) mor difficult. I was all thumbs!! Didn't have to cut the bumper fascia. I just took off the silver trim on the bottom of the bumper cover first which made maneuvering back on the car mich easier the snapped the trim back on afterwards. Looks great and pretty OEM on the car. 673052

As the two other reviewers said, the mounting holes are not drilled out correctly for a 2015 Golf Sportwagen and the bolts are too short for easy installation. If they were, it would have taken me less than two hours to install. As a result, it took me over 3 1/2 hours to install. Other than that, the hitch is fine. 256817

Great. Installation notes: On a 2015 Golf TDI Sportwagen, there are 6 T25 screws in each rear wheel well. You need to remove the rear most 4 of those, 3 into bumper cover support frame, and one oriented 90 degrees offset from the others, into rear fender. This is much easier to do if you jack up the car and remove the rear wheels. If you are working by yourself, it helps to have jack stands to hold the rear bumper while you remove the screws, and to hold the trailer hitch and rear bumper when you install them together. See picture. You can squeeze the 4 wire trailer socket through the square hole for either tail light (the hole is larger than the socket on the tail light), and wrap the flat 4 wire bundle in electrical tape where it crosses that hole below the socket on the tail light. After you reinstall the bumper cover, when you reinstall the tail light, just make the plastic thumb screw as tight as you can with a flat screwdriver to compress the foam gasket over the flat 4 wire bundle. 521906

This is the third time I've installed a Curt hitch. The other two were on a 2014 Jetta Sportwagen and a 2014 Honda CRV. My 2014 Jetta Sportwagen TDI has been swapped out for a 2015 Golf Sportwagen (a.k.a. GSW) compliments of VW, thus the need for the third hitch. I was a bit intimidated by the need to remove the entire rear bumper cover but there are some fantastic YouTube videos showing the bumper removal process ( just search on "Installing a Trailer Hitch on a Golf Sportwagen 2015" in YouTube) so I took the plunge. I took my time and the process went pretty smoothly. A few comments regarding my experience. Removing the bumper cover. Both the Curt instructions and the YouTube video suggest that you can pull on the bumper side pieces to get the clips to release. This did work but if I were to do it again I'd use a tool (an old credit card or other trim panel tool) to release the sides. The cover has a top edge with a series of rectangular cutouts that fit over plastic clips. Even with gentle tugging two of the cutout edges broke (one on either side, in about the same position) during the removal. This isn't a big deal since there are a bunch of these cutouts in a row along the panel edge so there was no issue fitting the panel back in place, but I'd have preferred a "perfect" removal. Also I recommend raising the rear and removing both rear tires to get access to the screws inside the rear wheel wells. They're T25 Torx screws and there's very limited clearance inside the wheel wells with the tires mounted. With the tires off you can use a power screwdriver to get at the four T25 screws inside each wheel well and speed the process along. As an additional note, as I was removing the T25 screws at some point a pair of plastic nuts fell out from under the bumper cover, one nut from each side of the car, and I was never quite able to tell which of the screws needed these nuts. All the screws seemed to bite when I put things back together. But I still have the nuts so maybe someone else knows where they belong? Models with driver assistance package. For GSW models with the driver assistance package, there's an additional cable that attaches inside the passenger side bumper cover for the object-proximity sensors mounted inside the cover. I suspected this would be the case but found that the cover could be detached and moved to gain access to the steel bumper beam without detaching this cable. In retrospect it probably would have been better to detach this cable prior to the cover removal. There's a removable plate beneath the rear passenger side that's held in place by two T25 screws that attach the cover (that you need to remove anyway) and another pair of plastic nuts on the inner side of this panel that attach to studs on the undercarriage. With this panel removed (prior to removing the bumper cover) you have access to this cable, though I didn't actually do this or go looking for the relevant connector to detach this cable). The Curt 11422 instructions make no mention of this possibility. Mounting the hitch and bumper beam. A couple of things here make installing the hitch/beam a bit easier. As the YouTube video shows, if you have a "suitably long" bolt, you can run the bolt from the back side of the the threaded beam bolt holes in the GSW frame so that they protrude an inch or so out from the frame to provide a temporary guide-pin to hold the hitch/beam in place while attaching other bolts. I used the outside lower bolt holes for this (fortunately the bolt holes go clear thru the frame and though there's a rubber seal on the back side you can move this aside to thread the bolt from the back). The bolts included with my hitch included two lengths and the longer ones, when run from the back side, worked as guides as described above. Inexplicably these longer ones were not threaded all the way to the head which meant they couldn't be screwed in all the way to the bolt head, but even so they still provided an inch or so of protruding guide. I also found it helpful to wrap a couple of bungee cords around the hitch and beam towards the middle to keep them bound together as one when jockeying into place on the frame. With a wedge (rolled up newspaper) placed between the hitch receiver and beam and bungee cords the pair was kept pretty well in place. The Curt instructions don't have these suggestions. The packing invoice from Curt actually listed two distinct sets of bolts (3 of M8 - 1.25 x 25; 4 of M8 - 1.25 x 35) but it was not very clear where these were supposed to be used, or why? The picture suggested that the longer bolts be used on the four outside holes while the shorter ones go on the inside but I couldn't see any reason for this? The bolts I received also seem to differ from the hardware shown in the product images on the eTrailer page for C11422. Their picture shows 7 bolts of equal length with 7 conical toothed washers. Instead, I received 3 conical washer and 4 steel washers + lock washers combinations? I don't think any of this matters, just curious about the discrepancy. The hitch/beam bolt holes aligned PERFECTLY and I had NONE of the issues other reviewers have reported when bolting the hitch/beam in place. When putting the bumper cover back into place over the hitch, I did find it expedient to cut away a bit of the plastic cover on the bottom side around the hitch. I use a naked hacksaw blade (work gloved hand) to cut out a small flap, though with sufficient jockeying it may have been possible to get the cover up and over the hitch without needing to cut anything. Since this is completely hidden on the underside it doesn't really matter, but the Curt instructions I received make no mention of needing to cut anything, and this may actually be the case. (The on-line Curt instructions do provide a trim diagram for the 4MOTION vehicles). The hitch on the car is nearly invisible. I love it. My next task is to install the wiring harness. 400152

Installed on a 2016 sportwagen S Installation of this hitch was fairly straight forward and went smoothly other than the two bottom outside mounting holes were about half an inch off from the frame holes. This required some drilling to enlarge the holes on the hitch receiver to match up with the frame. That is my only complaint though as the hitch fits perfectly on the vehicle and comes out through the already cut hole in the bottom of the bumper cover. When a hitch isn't in it the receiver is very non-intrusive and does not cause any clearance issues. One tip on the install which I felt the instructions don't do a very good job of mentioning: The bumper cover has a bottom section (where they receiver comes through) that can be removed very easily. Removing this made reinstalling the bumper cover much easier and then the bottom part could fitted around the receiver and snapped back into place as the final step of the install process. 244435

Works exactly as advertised. Not an eye sore and functions perfectly. The rear bumper facia needed to be removed. I am handy but I know I can ruin a cars paint and body in a hurry because I am impatient. I choose to have a body shop install the hitch for a small fee. Cost more but the car didn’t get damaged due my using using a 20lb hammer when delicate intuments were needed to remove the facia. Whatever..... AWSOME hitch get one. 605974

I was on the fence about installing this myself on my 2016 Golf SportWagen SE. After reviewing a few videos I decide to take the plunge and now glad I did. It was not a difficult project and took about 2 hours. The hitch fits perfect and looks great! My tips: Raising the back of the car makes it easier to get to many of the screws. I backed mine up on some ramps. Leave the wheels on and use a T25 torx bit in vise grips to loosen the some of the screws in the wheel well. I was able to use a regular T25 screw driver for the top screw. The screws come out easy and can be spun by hand once loose. Get over the fear of breaking a snap or two when pulling the bumper off. I broke a couple and in retrospect see no way I could have avoided doing so. The bumper cover will snap securely back on even if your removal is not perfect. Put a couple of long bolts in the back side of the bottom holes so that they stick out and use them for temporary supports when placing the hitch / crash bar combination on the car. Once you pin it in place with a couple of bolts can take the temp supports out. 523400

Very happy with the hitch. Went with the 1.25” because I’m only using it for a bike carrier and not towing. Curt hitch required no cutting of the bumper panel for a 2017 VW Alltrack, which was preferred. No alignment problems at all when installing and bolts fit perfectly. Will use strainer for any other needs! 638427

Easy install. It went so smoothly that I didn't even think to take any pictures. I did add blue loctite (medium strength) to the fasteners to help reduce the likelihood of needing to re-torque the bolts. It definitely looks good after the install and will be ready for the first towing adventure in about two weeks. I would recommend separating the lower plastic (black) trim piece from the painted bumper before re-installing the bumper. This made everything work really nicely for snapping the painted portion back in and then it was a breeze to slide the trim piece around the hitch and reconnect it to the painted portion. 576767

Ordering this product through eTrailer was a satisfying one, including an informative and user-friendly web site, quick and courteous pickup of the Q&A telephone line, and professionalism of the staff. Since the mechanical ability to install this hitch was above my pay grade, I had a local auto-body facility install the Curt Class I hitch on my 2017 VW Golf Alltrack SE; expect to pay around $150 for this job. The mechanic stated that the installation instructions provided in the delivered package included excellent diagrams and pictures for the mechanic to follow. The hitch looks and performs very well as a base for my Swingman XC2 bike rack! (I opted for a trailer-hitch-based option for my VW bike-rack needs for the Alltrack, as I unsuccessfully tried the roof-rack-based VW bike holder on my old 2010 SportWagen but had issues lifting and safely securing the bike (especially in high winds)). 496744

Delivery was timely and the packaging was secure - not easy when shipping heavy steel. Install was straightforward, and the instructions are good. Some of the pictures were hard to discern in black and white, but there is a color version online. It requires a little patience, and a second set of hands is needed for about 5 minutes of the install. My 10 year old son was recruited for that job. When installing this on a VW, highly recommend getting a couple extra plastic fasteners for the bumper, the ones with a T15 screw head. On my vehicle, two were on so tight that I stripped them attempting to unfasten, and I had to drill them out. I bought replacements that weren’t OEM at local auto parts store. Also, if you want to avoid removing wheels, get a ratchet with a short T25 bit. I had a 1/4” bit with a 3/8” ratchet with a step down attachment for 1/4” - wouldn’t fit; I had to go buy a small 1/4” ratchet. Hopefully I’ll save someone a few extra trips to the parts store. 555714

The hitch itself is very good. Fit for Golf alltrack 2017 is OEM! No cutting was necessary. Installation instructions though could be better. Taking off bumper cover instructions need a bit more detail. First, before pulling back, you need to pry out upper edge of the cover starting at wheel well, both sides. And then, for cars with DAP, there's a connector inside the cover on the passenger side. 368738

Easy to install with zero modification to the vehicle. Took about 2 hours. Things I found useful: Use a plastic trim-panel removal tool to release the bumper clips without scratching the bumper or the rear quarter. A screwdriver will scratch the painted surfaces. Ask a friend to help you bolt up the hitch-bumper sandwich. This was tricky to do alone. 380846

  • The Draw-Tite, part # 24949, and Curt, part # C11422, hitches that fit your 2018 VW Golf Sportwagen are the same in a couple of ways. Specifically they have the same specs and install using the same basic process. I've linked the install details for them both, as well as a video from when we installed the Draw-Tite on a 2015 Sportwagen for you. Between the two I recommend the Draw-Tite to avoid Curt's recommendation of a support strap, part # 18050, when carrying a bike rack.

  • 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...

  • Availability of Trailer Hitch for 2017 Volkswagen Golf Alltrack with No Fascia Trimming
  • We have the Curt hitch part # C11422 which is a fit for your 2017 Volkswagen Golf Alltrack and would allegedly only require trimming if you had the 4Motion model. If you didn't have the 4Motion model this would not require any trimming at all. We have heard of people installing the hitch on 4Motion vehicles and it not requiring trimming like in the picture I attached.

  • Trailer Hitch for a 2017 Volkswagen Golf Alltrack
  • There are trailer hitches that will fit the 2017 Volkswagen Golf SportWagen of which the Alltrack is one of the options for that vehicle. The hitches available are all Class I hitches though ( # C11422 and # 24949 ) and as such are limited to 2 bikes maximum. In order to use a swinging bike rack you would need to have a Class III hitch with a 2 inch receiver. Even a Class II has a 1-1/4 inch receiver but it can hold more than 2 bikes unlike the Class I. You mentioned a Subaru Outback....

  • Hitch & Bike Rack Recommendations for 2017 Volkswagen Golf SportWagen
  • Hitch makers like Curt and Draw-Tite engineer hitches for vehicles based on their frame and drivetrain capacities. On some smaller and lighter vehicles this can mean that only a 1-1/4-inch light-duty Class I hitch might be offered. At this time we do have only Class I hitch fits, parts # 24949 and # C11422, and it is unlikely that a 2-inch hitch will ever be offered for the car. There are hitch adapters like # HTAD that allow a 2-inch bike rack to be installed in a 1-1/4-inch Class...

  • Trailer Hitch and Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2015 Volkswagen Golf Sportwagen
  • For your 2015 Volkswagen Golf SportWagen the Curt hitch part # C11422 will fit the TDI and non-TDI models so it would be the correct hitch to use. The underbody panels and bumper of your vehicle will have to be temporarily loosened/removed but aside from that there wouldn't be any permanent modification. There would be no drilling required either. The most popular bike rack we carry that has been confirmed to fit this vehicle is the Thule Roadway 2 part # TH912XTR. We asked our demo...

  • Trailer Hitch Fit Recommendation for 2017 Volkswagen Golf ALLTRACK
  • I just got off the phone with my contact at Curt and he verified that the Curt hitch part # C11422 is a confirmed fit for the 2017 Volkswagen Golf Alltrack like what you have so we can guarantee this hitch will fit your vehicle. The other option is the Draw Tite hitch part # 24949. If you plan to carry a bike rack or cargo carrier this would be the option I would go with as it does not require a stabilizer strap like # 18050 when using the hitch for a non-supported load like a bike rack.

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch Receiver, Wiring, and Ball Mount For 2017 VW Golf SportWagen
  • For your 2017 Volkswagen Golf SportWagen, I recommend the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver Class I - 1-1/4", # C11422. This is a confirmed fit for your vehicle and works great for light duty towing like you are referring to. You will also need a ball mount to go with your hitch receiver, and I recommend the Curt Class II Drawbar - 2-5/8" Rise, 3-1/4" Drop - 7-1/4" Long - 3,500 lbs, # C45521. This ball mount will require a 1-7/8 inch hitch ball like # 19256 or a 2 inch ball like # 19258. For...

  • Best Trailer Hitch Receiver and Bike Rack for a 2018 Volkswagen Golf Alltrack
  • We do have some trailer hitches that are confirmed to fit your 2018 Volkswagen Golf Alltrack. Out of our selection I recommend going with the Draw-Tite Sportframe Trailer Hitch Receiver # 24949 because it is set at a competitive price point and it doesn't require a support strap # 18050 like the Curt # C11422 does. Then for a bike rack (if you don't already have one) I recommend the Kuat Beta # B202-114. This lightweight (12.6 lbs) aluminum bike rack comes fully assembled right out of...

  • How to Carry Two E-Bikes with a 2016 Volkswagen Golf Sportwagen
  • Due to the weight of your e-bikes, the only solution that we can safely recommend would be to use a trailer hitch, like the Curt Class I Hitch, # C11422, and a hitch mount bike rack that can handle the weight of your bikes and the fat tires of your husbands bike. I know you aren't interested in this route, but it is going to be the only way to make sure your vehicle and bikes avoid any damage. If cost is a concern, the most economical bike rack that we offer that can support both bikes...

  • Does the Rear Fascia of a 2016 Volkswagen Golf SportWagen Get Modified for Hitch Install
  • For your 2016 VW Golf Sportwagen TSI the Curt Hitch part # C11422 has been confirmed as a fit and will require you to temporarily remove or loosen the rear fascia for installation. No modifications of this fascia or drilling at all would be required. I attached a link to the install instructions for this hitch for you to check out as well. These instructions are in full-color and are very descriptive so they would be very helpful.

  • Does Rear Bumper have to be Removed to Install Curt Trailer Hitch on 2018 Subaru Outback
  • Curt trailer hitch # C11422 fits various versions of the Volkswagen Golf but not the 2018 Subaru Outback. The Curt hitches that fit your Outback without having to remove the bumper are # C13206 for a 2 inch receiver and # C12136 for a 1-1/4 inch receiver. I have linked videos that show how each installs. Hitch # C13206 is rated for 600 pounds tongue weight and 4,000 pounds gross trailer weight. Hitch # C12136 is rated for 350 pounds tongue weight and 3,500 pounds gross trailer weight. If...

  • Hitch Recommendation for 2017 Volkswagen Golf SportWagen That Does Not Require Stabilizer Strap
  • Only the Curt hitch for your 2017 Volkswagen Golf Sportwagen requires the stabilizer strap. A better option would be the Draw Tite hitch part # 24949 which is a fit for your vehicle and does not have that requirement when carrying a bike rack. There hasn't been any issues with the Draw Tite hitch not matching up to the bolt holes of your vehicle. But sometimes hitches will get bent in shipping which throws off the bolt hole dimensions.

  • Comparing EcoHitch, Curt, and Draw-Tite Trailer Htches for a 2019 Volkswagen Golf Alltrack
  • The EcoHitch Hidden Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 306-X7315, Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C11422, and Draw-Tite Sportframe Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 24949 are all excellent options for a 2019 Volkswagen Golf Alltrack. I recommend EcoHitch because this option has a larger 2" receiver tube opening whereas Curt and Draw-Tite both have the smaller 1-1/4" receiver tube openings. The larger receiver tube opening is nice even if you are not towing because this allows for you to choose...

  • 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...
