Video Transcript for Trailer Hitch Installation - 2017 Honda Civic

Today on our 2017 Honda Civic Sedan, we're going to be taking a look at and installing the Curt Class I Trailer Hitch Receiver, part number C11604. So here's what our hitch looks like fully installed. It's going to be right underneath the bumper, and you're going to see the nice, round tube crossbar going across the bottom of the car. Now, this is going to give you a 1-1/4" by 1-1/4" receiver tube opening, and it has that nice, flush reinforced collar around the receiver tube, and just giving it a nice, finished look. Now, this hitch is going to use a standard 1/2" pin and clip, which is included, so you're not going to have to go out and buy one. Now, as far as the safety chain loops, there's going to be a plate welded on the bottom, and you're still going to have plenty of room to get any of your hooks on or off. Now, this hitch has a 200-pound max tongue weight, which is going to be the force pushing down, and it also has a 2,000-pound gross trailer weight rating, which is the force it can pull.

Now, you do want to check with your vehicle's owner's manual to make sure that your vehicle can handle that. Now, the manufacturer does recommend, when towing non-trailer loads, that you do use a stabilization strap, which you can find on our website using part number 18050. Now I'm going to give you a few measurements that should help you when deciding on accessories such as a bike rack or a cargo carrier. From the center of the hitch pin hole to the outermost edge of the bumper is 5". From the ground to the inside top edge of the receiver tube is 11". Now that we've gone over some features, let's go and show you how we get it installed.

To begin our installation, we're going to need to pick up our hitch and put it in place, and we're going to be placing it right on the frame rail. Right on either side of the exhaust here, we're going to be placing our hitch here and marking our holes where we're going to need to drill. Now with an extra set of hands, we can get our hitch in place. All right, with our hitch in position, I'm just going to rest it against these bolts to help me. I'm just going to mark out our holes, and we're going to do the same thing on the other side. Okay, now we can lower our hitch back down and set it aside while we get ready to drill our holes.

Now with everything marked, I'm going to be using a 1/4" drill bit, and I'm going to make those holes first, and then we're going to come back with a 1/2" drill bit. And we're going to repeat the same process on the other side. With our two holes that we just drilled on each side, if you come to the forward-most hole, this is going to be our access hole. So since our hardware's not going to fit through there, we're going to have to enlarge this hole, and you can use a step drill bit, a file, a die grinder, or whatever you have available to make the hole big enough to fit our spacer blocks. I'm going to be using a step drill, and I'm going to make it just big enough to get our hardware in. Now you can see that our spacer block fits right inside of our access hole.

Now we're going to do the same process on the other side. So I'm going to take my pull wire and I'm going to put it in the furthest rear hole, and I'm going to be wanting it to come out here, in my access hole. Now, this may take a little bit of patience, and I do want to remind you, we did finish drilling the access hole, so there will be some sharp edges. A little trick is once you get it in there and you can find it with your finger, you get a pair of needle-nose pliers, should be able to reach in and grab it, and we're just going to want our wire to come out right here. Okay, now with our pull wire here, we're going to take our spacer block, and we're going to feed it over and through our pull wire, and then we're going to take our bolt and we're going to thread it onto the coiled end. Now we're going to feed our block into our access hole, and we're going to push our bolt into our access hole, and we're going to come back to the wire, and we're going to pull everything down, just like that. Now, for our second access hole, what we're going to do is we're going to take our pull wire and we're going to feed our spacer block on, just like before, and we're going to thread on our bolt to the coiled end again, and this time, we're going to put our bolt in first, followed by our spacer block, and then we're just going to pull our bolt down just like that, and we're going to repeat the same process on the other side. Now with all of our hardware in place, with an extra set of hands, we're going to go ahead and put the hitch up. I'm just making sure that we put our fish wire through the corresponding hole on the hitch. Now we can remove our fish wire off one of our bolts, and we're just going to secure our flange nut on there tight enough, just so the hitch will support itself. We're going to repeat the same process on the other side. Now we can go ahead and take our pull wires off the rest of our hardware. I'm going to go ahead and put our flange nuts on. Now with the hardware all loosely in place, I'm going to come to the back here and make sure that our hitch is centered, and then we can go and snug up our hardware. Now, I'm going to be using an 11/16" socket. Now that our fasteners are all snug down, I'm going to come back and torque them to the specified amount in the instructions. And that'll finish up our look at the Curt Custom Fit Class I Trailer Hitch Receiver, part number C11604 on our 2017 Honda Civic Sedan.

Very solid hitch. It took me about 1.5 hours but was not that hard to install. The cold bothered me more than the work. The frame on the Honda is pretty hard, so getting the first holes through was interesting. After that things went smoothly. The step drill is a necessity. Also a good drill is needed. I put the rear of the car on ramps and this provided plenty of clearance to drill holes. I used a car jack to hold the hitch in place to mark location and then when finally installing. The fish wires worked perfectly, really a great addition. Instructions and video were excellent. 465220

Great product, have used it often and appreciate the quality. It would be nice if you offered a tool to cut through tempered steel. On my 2016 Honda Civic, the frame steel where the back holes ( nearest to the bumper) of the hitch mount is tempered steel. I had to use a stone grinding wheel to cut those holes. The front holes drilled with a standard bit. 450104

Great Hitch and very easy to install for the do it yourself person. I use the hitch for my bike rack only as the vehicle does not recommend pulling a trailer. I'm considering buying a new vehicle and I will be a repeat customer. 336458

Do you have a question about this Trailer Hitch?


  • Will Warranty be Voided by Installing Trailer Hitch Receiver on 2016 Honda Civic
  • 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. The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C11604 is confirmed to fit your 2016 Honda Civic sedan. I've linked an install video for you. If you're going to be towing a trailer you'll also need a ball mount, hitch ball, pin and clip,...

  • How to Carry Bikes on a 2017 Honda Civic Si with Cewnter Exhaust

  • Trailer Hitch and Wiring for a 2016 Honda Civic Touring
  • For your 2016 Honda Civic Touring I recommend Draw-Tite hitch # 24954 which is listed as a fit for all styles of the 2016 Civic. If you plan on doing any towing the proper ball mount to use is # 3593. For a 1-7/8 inch ball use # 19256 and for a 2 inch ball use # 19258. And for trailer wiring you can use # 119179KIT to add a 4-Way flat connector to the rear of the vehicle.

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch for Carrying Bikes w/ 2016 Honda Civic Sedan
  • There are two alternatives, either of which would work fine for a bike rack carrying up to 2 bikes. The Curt Class I # C11604 is the most expensive option, and you'd need to use a stabilizing strap # 18050 for the bike rack, in order to meet Curt's warranty stipulations. The good news is that this is the easier to install option. On a scale of 1 to 10, it's rated as a 4. I've linked the installation instructions for you to look over. The Draw-Tite Class I, # 24954, is less expensive,...

If you don't have a hitch yet, I recommend the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class I - 1-1/4" # C11604 which is an easy bolt-on installation. This is a very nice rack with an included cable lock that is compatible with a Class I hitch receiver.

  • Can a Bike Rack that Fits a 2 Inch Trailer Hitch be Used with a 2016 Honda Civic
  • All of the trailer hitches for the 2016 Honda Civic are going to be Class I hitches with 1-1/4 inch receivers. In order to use your 2 inch bike rack you would have to use an adapter, # HTAD. However, doing so will reduce the tongue weight capacity of the trailer hitch by 50 percent meaning the combined weight of the bike rack and bikes cannot exceed the reduced capacity. There are a couple of hitches that fit your Civic; Curt hitch # C11604, and Draw-Tite hitch # 24954. They install...

  • Installation of Curt Class I Trailer Hitch on 2016 Honda Civic Sedan
  • The Curt Class I hitch you've looked at, part # C11604 would work perfectly for carrying a bike rack and two bikes on your 2016 Honda Civic Sedan. Drilling will be required to install the hitch, but as you can see from the installation instructions that I've linked for you, the installation isn't terribly difficult. The # 18050 stabilizing strap would hook into the gap at the top of the trunk lid, just behind the rear windshield. If you look at the video I've linked for you, you can...

  • Drilling is required to install Curt trailer hitch # C11604 but there is no trimming mentioned. I have linked the instructions for you. You can install the hitch without having the vehicle on a lift. If you have ramps or some jack stands then those will provide you will more space to work. The recommended ball mount for this hitch is # C45521. For a 1-7/8 inch ball I recommend # 19256 and for a 2 inch ball I recommend # 19258. And for trailer wiring I recommend # 118686 to add a...

  • Does 2016 Honda Civic Sedan have to be on a Lift to Install Curt Trailer Hitch 11604
  • A lift is not required to install Curt trailer hitch # C11604 on a 2016 Honda Civic sedan. It would make it easier but it isn't a necessity. Jacking up the rear of the vehicle, rolling it up on some ramps, using jack stands, any of these will give you enough space to install the hitch. I have linked a video showing an example installation of this hitch for you.

The most popular bike rack we carry that has been confirmed to fit this vehicle is the Swagman XTC2 Bike Rack part # S64670.

  • Will a Trailer Hitch Fit a 2017 Honda Civic EX-T with Honda Sensing Technology
  • Looking at the graphics and info about the Sensing technology on the Honda website it does not appear that there are any sensors or equipment at the rear of the vehicle that would interfere with the installation of a trailer hitch on your 2017 Honda Civic. Also, Curt does not have any restrictions for hitch # C11604 other than it was designed specifically for sedan models and will not fit models with center exhaust. I have included a link to a video showing an example installation for you. If...

  • Will Curt Trailer Hitch Interfere with MagnaFlow Exhaust on a 2017 Honda Civic
  • While there should not be any interference between the Curt trailer hitch ( # C11604 or # C11463 ) on your 2017 Honda Civic and the MagnaFlow exhaust # MF19312 it is possible something may need to be moved a little. If you notice any contact or exhaust rattle there are ways to fix that issue. I have included a link to our help article that explains how to correct that issue if you end up having that problem. The good news is that it may not even be a problem and if it is the fixes are pretty...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch and Installer for 2016 Honda Civic
  • We do not currently have an approved list of mechanics/shops for installing a trailer hitch on your vehicle, however any local mechanic with a good reputation will be able to handle the installation without issue. For your 2016 Honda Civic, I recommend going with the Curt Class I Receiver Hitch # C11604 if you have a Sedan model, or the Curt Class I # C11463 if you have the Coupe. Both of these hitches are custom-fit for the vehicle they are designed to attach to, meaning they will use...

  • Is there a Trailer Hitch or Trunk Mount Bike Rack for a 2016 Honda Civic Coupe
  • I checked with the manufacturers we carry and the hitches are only listed as fits for sedan models of the 2016 Honda Civic but I do have a way that you can carry bikes with your coupe. You can use the Hollywood Racks Expedition trunk mount bike rack # HRF6-2 for 2 bikes or # HRF6-3 for three bikes. This is a great option because it is not a permanent installation like a trailer hitch and the cost is about the same. Plus the trunk mount racks can be used on many vehicles. I have included...

  • Trailer Hitch For 2009 Honda Civic and is Friction Sway Control Needed for Towing
  • For such a small trailer you would not need to install an anti sway bar while towing with your 2009 Honda Civic. The Curt hitch part # C11604 is a confirmed fit for your 2009 Honda Civic and would work great for towing a small trailer as long as your owners manual states that you can tow the weight of your trailer. For trailer wiring you would want the # C59496. For a ball mount part # C45521. For a ball part # A-82 for 2 inch or part # A-80 for 1-7/8 inch ball.
