Video Transcript for Trailer Hitch Installation - 2013 Honda Odyssey - Curt

Today, on our 2013 Honda Odyssey, we'll be taking a look at and installing the Curt Custom Fit Class 2 Trailer Hitch Receiver, part number C12031. Here's what our Curt Class 2 Trailer Hitch Receiver is going to look like once it's installed on the back of the vehicle. It is going to have a really nice and sleek design to it, having that full width round bar design that's going to be fully welded and go with the body's shape. The fully welded design is also going to add to its dependability and long-lasting strength, as well as that black powder coat finish that's going to help prevent any kind of rust and corrosion. It's going to have that plate steel design for our chain tie-downs, as well as that half-inch pinhole going straight through to attach all our inch-and-a-quarter by inch-and-a-quarter accessories. When we're going to be towing those accessories, keep in mind that you're going to have the 350 pounds of tongue weight capacity and 3,500 pounds max towing capacity. Now that we've gotten a good look at our hitch, let's get a few measurements to assist you.

From the center our our pinhole to the outermost edge of our bumper is going to be about 3 and 3/8 of an inch. From the top of our receiver tube to the ground, it's going to be about 13 and one quarter inches. These measurements should assist you in selecting those hitch accessories such as ball mounts, bike racks, and cargo carriers for your new receiver hitch. Let's go ahead and see how it's installed. First thing we're going to need to do in the installation of our new hitch is remove the under body panel on the driver's side. We use a flat blade screwdriver or trim panel removal tool to pop the centers out and lower these fasteners.

We'll have three fasteners around the outside and one on the back. Now the one on the back is going to be a 10 mm screw located up here at the top. You'll see a Phillips head screw also attaching this panel just behind the rear driver's mud flap, located right here. We'll go ahead and remove that as well, so we can pull down that panel. You may also need to remove the driver's side mud flap to gain access to that final screw. Once you have that screw removed, we'll go ahead and lower down that driver's side appearance panel, and return that back to the owner.

We'll go ahead and re-install our driver's side mud flap now that we have that appearance panel down. You're going to have two attachment points here at the rear which will be the weld nuts, and this will be the same on the other side. There will be an additional attachment point just here on the driver's side, which will be this hole here. If it makes it easier, you can also lower down the exhaust to give you a little bit more working room, but it's not required. Use a little spray lubricant to spray out the weld nuts and clean them out. Use a tube brush, part number 814092, if necessary, to help you clean out those threads.

Now go ahead and get an extra set of hands to help us raise our hitch into place. The hardware we're going to be using is going to be a conical tooth washer and a 12 mm bolt. Start them into the existing weld nuts that we cleaned out, with the teeth of the washer facing the hitch. I'll go ahead and place our second bolt in the second weld nut here. Go ahead and use your bolt leader, put a little bend in it, put it into the hole and out the access hole just behind it. Once you have it out the access hole, we'll put our locking block into the frame, and then our carriage bolt will thread on to the end of the bolt leader. Place the carriage bolt into the frame, and pull the bolt through, and then thread on our nut. Now we'll go ahead and tighten down our two bolts and nut on this side, and two bolts on the passenger side. Now, with our hardware tightened down, we'll go ahead and torque it to our manufacturer's specifications, noted in our instructions. That will do it for our review and installation of the Curt Custom Fit Class 2 Trailer Hitch Receiver, part number C12031 on our 2013 Honda Odyssey.

This trailer hitch was easy to install by myself (using a floor jack to raise it into position) and has worked well for me. The directions and on-line video were excellent. I only use the hitch occasionally but appreciate the knowledge of having it ready to use when I need it. I have not as yet installed the light hook up kit but hope to get around to that soon. etrailer was helpful in the ordering process and the product was delivered promptly and undamaged from transit. I would highly recommend both the product and the company. 404317

The best part about buying from etrailer.com was the educational videos they make. I watched them all over and over again to make sure I was doing everything right. The Curt Hitch worked out great for our Yakima bike rack. It took many hours of scrubbing off the rust from the weld nuts of our 2007 Honda Odyssey (I definitely recommend buying a wire brush if your vehicle is more than a year or two old!). Once they were all clean, the installation was super easy. (You'll also want to pick up a torque wrench if you don't have one; my neighbor over-torqued and broke off one of the weld nuts on his vehicle!) Thanks again to eTrailer for great products and a great and super helpful website. 273983

Hitch was very easy to install. Came with necessary hardware, clear and simple installation instructions, and a fish wire for installing one of the bolts in the frame rail which worked excellent. Ordered with express delivery option, and the hitch was delivered to my home in 48 hours. (Thanks also to Honda for making the vehicle with hitch installation in mind.) 526871

Comments

Carl,Thank you for your review on C12031. I am sorry your sister was involved in an accident, I hope she was okay. In the interest of safety she may want to replace the hitch. In high impact situations these hitches can get hairline cracks that are not always visible. These cracks can adversely effect the capacity and structural integrity of the hitch. I would not recommend to continue using this hitch after being rear-ended.

Hello...I received box from UPS. It was delivered on time. I did not open because this is a gift for 1 of my son in laws. I will order another hitch for a 2015 Toyota Venza in a few days for my other son in law. This will be my fourth hitch. I think I am getting the hang of 1 man installations even at 75 years old.

Everything went together well. The only problem I had was cleaning the rust out of the pre-threaded holes in the frame after 11 years of rust and dirt accumulation. 305178

The hitch is exactly as advertised and fits perfectly. The video was enormously helpful. My Odyssey is a 2006 so there may have been more build up in the weld nuts (as they call them in the video) than on a newer model. It took extensive cleaning with the tube brush before I could the bolt to screw in. This looks like an easy step to overlook but it proved to be integral. I would recommend making sure you have the brush and lubricant handy before starting the installation. 284091

Hitch went on ok , but should take a look at the mounting hole distances again, was very close not to fit, mounting hole distances are at the exstream end of the oval shaped hole, one moremilimeter and it would not have fit!, you need to check with the manufacture, the was the second hitch, the first one I got , mounting holes were off by 3/8 of an inch in distance!! 264050



- C12031

Very good design and complete with all needed hardware. The fish wire used to install the last bolt needs to have the coil wound tighter so it fits completely into the threads of the bolt, or else the square hole in the rectangular washer needs to be slightly larger. It is very difficult to pull the wire and bolt through the washer once it is in place inside the frame rail. If you pull long and hard enough, the coil slowly unravels and the bolt eventually pops through. Otherwise the installation was straight forward and easy. 262425

I received this well-made hitch quickly. The installation was pretty easy, taking about 30-40 minutes. The process is easier if you have a 2nd person to hold the opposite end of the hitch in place while you get the first couple of bolts in, but it's still possible to do it alone. 178433

The hitch took about two hours to put on but that was due to a) not having the tools I needed, b) most of the time was spent trying to get the little plastic holders to come out and then trying to put them back in. real time wasn't much and it looks really good especially since the Honda dealership wanted $1900 to install a hitch. So adding in an hour for the wiring harness makes a total of 3 hours and $200 vs. $1,900. Now that's Priceless to me. Thanks for a great product and clear instructions. 163399

Fast shipping - product arrived next day with free shipping! Install was simple, online videos extremely helpful. Curt hitch looks great on our 2007 Honda Odyssey. I like the round tube design with closed ends. To install, I sprayed bolt holes with Gunk Liquid Wrench penetrating oil and let soak for 10-15 mins. I bought a 1/2" diameter round tube brush at Ace Hardware and used it in my power drill to clean out the bolt threads. Bolts then screwed in easily making install a snap. Thanks for great customer service! 160022

This Curt hitch fit our 2009 Odyssey perfectly, and really did take only about 20 minutes to install. The included "fish wire" worked great and was a big help with the third bolt on the driver side. And as always, excellent service from etrailer.com! 144926

The Curt Trailer Hitch came exactly as advertised within a week. It went on easily, exactly as the instructions said. I was happy to finally get a chance to use my torque wrench, but I really don't think I needed it. I also liked the video instructions on the website. The ones in the package were ok, but the video on the etrailer.com website made it look easy...and sure enough, it was. Highly recommended! I would take a picture, but (in addition to being lazy), there is no point as it looks exactly like the pics on the website. :) 84544

Just installed this Curt 1-1/4 hitch on a 2 year old 2011 Honda Odyssey. I watched the etrailer installation video which was very helpful. I used the #814092 tube brush to clean out the threads on the frame. An additional feature of this Curt hitch is the carriage bolt on the driver side that helps to attach the hitch to the frame. The passenger side of the hitch is able to rest on the exhaust while you bolt up the driver side. Everything went smoothly and I was able to install the hitch by myself in about 30 minutes. A great product ... I'm happy! 71175

This is the second hitch I've purchased from etrailer and I've had excellent service both times. This Curt trailer hitch was deliverede about a week after ordering and I promptly installed it without any problems. Our Odyssey had less than 100 miles on it so the frame nuts did not need any cleaning. A couple differences in the packaged instructions from the website video: the exhaust pipe did not have to be dropped - you just push the exhaust away a few inches to gain space to torque the bolts; the trim panel on the driver's side is easily trimmed with box cutters and re-installed after the installation for a cleaner looking installation. Have the right tools and an extra pair of hands ready and this is about a 30-40 minute job. 53307

Too Easy! A 3/4in or 19mm socket and I think a 13/16in socket are the only tools needed. It is easier to put this hitch on than it is to put the spare tire on the van. 26084

  • Troubleshooting Stripped Weldnut in Frame Rail For 2014 Honda Odyssey Hitch Installation
  • Unfortunately your photo did not come through, but I believe I know exactly how to help. The weldnut is still in place, it just has been stripped on the inside. So my recommendation is to go to the local hardware store and get a tap to allow you to make the weld nut accept a slightly larger bolt and then use a grade 5 bolt that matches your tap to allow you to torque the bolt correctly per the hitch installation instruction.

This hitch has a 300 pound tongue weight capacity and does not require the use of support straps. Curt only offers the one style of Trailer Hitch Support Straps, # 18050.

  • Curt or Draw Tite Trailer Hitch Recommendation for 2016 Honda Odyssey
  • For your 2016 Honda Odyssey I would recommend the Draw Tite hitch part # 36417 over the Curt hitch part # C12031 because if you were to use a hitch mounted accessory like a bike rack the Draw Tite does not require the use of a stabilizer strap like part # 18050 like the Curt does. Either hitch would have about the same visibility. Some people prefer the look of square tube over round tube, but realistically both will look about the same.

  • What is a Recommended Hitch for a 2011 Honda Odyssey?
  • The trailer hitch I recommend for lightweight towing on your 2011 Honda Odyssey is the Draw-Tite # 36417.

  • How to Clean The Weld Nuts of a 2002 Honda Odyssey to Install a CURT Trailer Hitch
  • Sometimes weldnuts need to be cleaned, it can be spatter from when the frame was welded together or it could be paint or corrosion. To clean the threads out well, you can use a wire brush and some brake cleaner. Make sure you start the bolts so they are not cross threading the nuts. Due to the amount of winters your 2002 Honda Odyssey has seen it would seem likely that the weld nuts are in need of being cleaned out. The additional corrosion in the weldnut will make them seem to be too...

  • Hitch Adapter to Increase Ground Clearance to Use Tow Ready Cargo Carrier # 63154 on 2015 Odyssey
  • Your 2015 Honda Odyssey can be fitted with either a 1-1/4-inch Class II or a 2-inch Class III hitch. All hitches for your Odyssey can be seen on the link provided. If you want a Class II hitch you can use Curt # C12031 without need for any adapter. I recommend Curt Class III hitch # C13068 because it has the same 350-lb tongue weight capacity as the other Class III options but it costs less. The written instructions and an installation video are linked for you to review along with a...

  • 4-Bike Hitch Rack for 2006 Honda Odyssey That Allows Vehicle Hatch Access
  • The type of hitch on your 2006 Honda Odyssey is a 1-1/4-inch Class II type, like # 36417 from Draw-Tite and # C12031 from Curt. Both have a 1-1/4-inch receiver opening but they do measure larger between their outside edges. You'll want to review our Class II-compatible hitch-style 4-bike racks as you make your selection. I linked all such carriers and they do include products from more than one brand, but not Thule or Yakima products since their swing-away type racks are made only for...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch for Carrying 4 Bike Rack with 2008 Honda Odyssey
  • There are Class II and Class III hitches available for your Odyssey. When the choice is available, I recommend going with the Class III, because there's a much better selection of hitch accessories like bike racks and cargo carriers available. There's not much in the way of a price differential between the two, so you might as well get the Class III. I'd recommend the Draw-Tite Class III, part # 75270. This hitch will be an excellent choice for a Thule 4-bike rack. I'll link you to the...

  • Replacement Hardware for Curt Trailer Hitch Installation on 2012 Honda Odyssey
  • The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C12031 for 1999 thru 2017 Honda Odyssey models use M12-1.25 x 35mm bolts with 1/2 inch conical toothed washer for the weldnuts in the frame. It also will use one 7/16-14 x 1-1/2 inch carriage bolt with a square hole spacer and a 7/16-14 flange nut. I've attached the installation instructions to assist further. If you want the exact hardware and fish wire you can use kit # RHK. You may also want the nylon tube brush # 814092 and # L11363 to clean...

  • Recommendation of a Hitch Extender for a Class-II Trailer Hitch on a 2010 Honda Odyssey
  • The most popular hitch extender we currently sell is # HE06 as it will extend your receiver tube opening up to 7-inches. I recommend this option since you already have a 2-inch adapter on your Yakima bike rack. The hitch extender will reduce the tongue weight capacity of the hitch and the vehicle by 50 percent. You must abide by the capacities of the lowest rated component. For example, if the tongue weight capacity of the hitch is 200 pounds, but the tongue weight capacity of the vehicle...

  • Will Curt Hitch from 2006 Honda Odyssey Fit a 2015 Honda Odyssey?
  • Yes. For your 2015 Honda Odyssey, Curt makes two hitch options. The first is the 2 inch receiver # C13068 and the second is a 1-1/4 inch receiver # C12031. Both will fit model years 1999-2017. It is not recommended to reuse the same hardware because it has been torqued to spec once and will no longer have the same strength, so I recommend the hardware kit # RHK to get the same hardware that came with the hitch for the strength rating of the hitch to hold true. For your trailer...
