Video Transcript for Trailer Hitch Installation - 2017 Subaru Outback Wagon - Curt

Today on our 2017 Subaru Outback Wagon, we're going to take a look at and also show you how to install the Curt Custom-Fit Class II Trailer Hitch Receiver, offering a 1-1/4 x 1-1/4 inch opening. It's part number is C12136. This is what our hitch is going to look like installed. It's a really nice clean look, I think. We've got the round tube that's going to come over here. It meets in the middle with our receiver tube opening.

This is 1-1/4 x 1-1/4 inch nice, flush-looking reinforcement collar around the end of it. I like the way Curt does that. These are our safety chain connection points here. An oval shaped hole. You shouldn't have any problem getting safety chains connected with whatever type you may want to use. You'll see our 1/2-inch diameter pin hole here.

It's going to be great for uses with this pinning clip, which is provided with the hitch or if you want to do a locking hitch pin or even an anti-rattle device, it looks like we're going to have plenty of room there. This is Class II hitch so you're going to have lots of options as far as accessories that will fit it, 4-bike racks, cargo carriers, ball mounts so you can haul a small trailer. All of that is really good uses for it.

With that being said, Curt will recommend the use of a stabilization strap when we're hauling non-wheel loads, so cargo carriers, bike racks, things that like. A couple of measurements that will be helpful when it comes to selecting ball mounts, bike racks or cargo carriers will be from the ground to the inside top edge of our receiver tube opening. We've got about 15-3/4 inch. Then from the center of our hitch pin hole to the outermost edge of our bumper, it's about 1-3/4 inch. The first thing we need to do is get our exhaust lowered down and out of the way. This is a single outlet exhaust, so we're just going to have three hangers. We've got one that's located right here at the rear corner and to the inside of the car. Right catty-cornered, there's going to be one right up here. Then if we'll follow the pipe forward a little bit, there's one right in front of this rear differential. Now before we start pulling those, what I like to do is just put a strap underneath the exhaust here. That's going to offer us some support so as we remove those hangers, this will support it and then we can gently lower it down as much as we want. The next thing we're going to do is start pulling those hangers down. I like to use some spray lubricant on them. This is just going to help them slide off a little bit easier. Then a large screwdriver or pry bar is really what you're going to need. We'll just kind of slide those off. We'll do that for our other two locations. If you have a dual exhaust, you're just going to repeat this same process, but it will be over on the passenger side. We'll leave a little slack there and then we can kind of move that exhaust over a little bit. It's going to give us the room we need to work. Now we've got 4 bolts. We've got 1, 2, 3 and 4 that we're going to need to remove. All right. Now we can set these aside for re-installation later. Now we're going to pull the plugs out of the bottom of the frame rail. That's going to expose one of the holes here that we're going to enlarge and then the one here in the rear is going to be one of our attachment points once we get our bolt fish wired down through it. The first thing we need to do is enlarge this hole located here in the front. That's what we're going to use to slide all of our hardware in. We're going to create that to be out access hole. Now you can use a grinder and kind of round it out on each side. What I like to use is a step bit. This is going to allow us to just slowly enlarge the hole as we go. It will keep it kind of more uniform looking. Once we've got these enlarged so our bolt passes freely in and out there, that's what we're looking for. I like to use a little rustproof spray paint here and just coat that and let it dry. That way, we're not going t have to worry about any corrosion or anything like that on that bare steel. Now we're ready to get our hardware installed so we'll take our bolt leader or our fish wire or whatever you want to call it and we're going to go in the rearmost attachment point and direct it back to where we can get it through the hole that we enlarged. Now onto that, we're going to slide one of our spacer blocks. We'll thread on one of the 1/2-inch carriage bolts. I like to feed them in separately. That's usually the best tactic. Then we'll bring them right back to that rear location. We'll go do the exact same thing for our passenger side. Now with the help of an extra set of hands, we're going to guide our hitch up into position. We'll go right over the bolts we just put in. Then we'll take our flange nuts. We're going to thread them right up on the carriage bolts. Now we'll snug down our hardware just a little bit here. Now using our hitch as a template, we want to drill out a hole that's 17/32nds in diameter. I've also used a 1/2-inch bit and then just kind of enlarged it slightly. We want a 1/2-inch bolt to come through. That extra 32nd just gives us a little cushion room. We can head over to the passenger side and just repeat that same process. Now with our holes drilled out, we'll use our bolt leaders again. We'll run those up through and out the same access hole. Then we'll slide on another spacer block, thread on our carriage bolt and bring them down through. Now we can place a flange nut on our forward mounting location there and then go do the same thing for our passenger side. We'll snug those down as well. It's time to grab our torque wrench and check our instructions for the proper specifications and get all of our hardware torqued down appropriately. Now we're going to get our heat shield trimmed here. Basically, we just want to come up this ridge just past that . I'll call it the second little channel that runs through and then right up to the side. This is a pretty thin piece of metal so you can use just tinsnips or whatever you've got there to cut it like that. Then we'll replace the 3 bolts to get it put back into position. We just removed one of the mounting locations there. Now it's time to get our exhaust put back into position. A little more spray lubricant here is going to help that out. We can just raise it up and slide our hangers on. We'll pull down our safety strap here and our hitch will be ready for use. That will complete our installation of our Curt Custom-Fit Class II Trailer Hitch Receiver, Part No. C12136, on our 2017 Subaru Outback Wagon.

The trailer hitch itself works fine. Very solid compared to others. The installation instructions could use some additions. The holes you drill for the bolts and brackets to be fished through the frame tube seem to be very small. I could not get the bolt head to pass through this opening. I drilled a third hole towards the back of the vehicle in order to make the opening larger. Also, I used some Rustoleum spray paint to cover the bare metal from the holes I drilled. After the paint was dry and I fished in the bolts and brackets through the opening. Then, I covered the holes that I drilled with aluminum duct tape. I had a difficult time reinstalling the muffler hanger at the rear most of the car. I seem to have to defy the laws of physics to get it to work. 208450

I bought the hitch for our 2014 Subaru Outback. The main use is to hold a bike rack that carries two bikes. Installation wasn't too bad besides having to drill holes and fish the nuts through, but this had to be done, due to not having any factory mounting spots. The only issue I have with it is that my exhaust hits it just slightly and rattles. I checked everything and it all looks lined up. I may have to loosen it and pry it sideways and retighten. If that doesn't work I may have to install some rubber tape or something on it. 608516


Comments
Were sorry to hear that your exhaust is rattling a bit against your hitch. Because the exhaust system uses rubber hangers, the exact placement of the exhaust can vary slightly from vehicle to vehicle. The same cannot be said for the hitch, as its attachment is rigid, and will occupy the same exact space on every vehicle of the same year, make and model. The good news is that its very easy to manipulate the exhaust hangers a little bit to move things apart far enough where rattling wont be an issue. This happens often enough that weve written a help article about it, which I will link for you below:

Good product, and etrailer.com makes it quick & easy via fast shipping and video instructions. My thoughts on the install (I am a mechanically inclined first time hitch installer) - 90 minute novice install time is everything goes right the first time, and you have all necessary tools in front of you. - I installed without help, the only hard part was lifting the hitch up into place it. Help from a 2nd person would have sped up the install. - The 3.6R six cylinder Subaru has 2 mufflers, so there is more time required to lower / reattach the exhaust, and remove / cut / reinstall heat shields (this is not mentioned in the video I don't think). I also recommend using Simply Green to spray rubber muffler mounts to lubricate, allows them to be removed and reinstalled much easier. - Time was wasted when fishing bolts/brackets as holes I drilled weren't quite big enough (I didn't wanted to minimize width). I tested the hole size for rectangular brackets, but it turns out bolt head width was a bit larger than the bracket and wouldn't fit through the hole. Since I already had the fishing wire pulled through and the bracket in the frame, I had to reverse / remove everything to enlarge the hole (hard to get the bracket back out). Also, on fish wire coil stretched a bit, so it became too wide to pull through the 2nd set of holes. - The fishing wire is a bit short, there was continual worry it would slip through. A longer wire would alleviate those worries. The end result is you get a great hitch, and don't have to pay a 3rd party for installation, and save a lot of money. Well worth a small bit of installation hassle. 634108

The hitch went on without a problem. It took about an hour and a half to install. The video was great on how to install it. The hitch looks good and is not a "leg banger" since it does not stick out too far. Works good with the bike rack and will soon be used to pull a small trailer. I am very satisfied. 610469

I received my hitch and had a local garage attempt to attach it, but the hitch was built improperly. I contracted etrailer.com and sent photos of hitch. Ian at etrailer.com shipped a new hitch and a no cost shipping label to return the hitch. Have now had the new hitch attached and fits fine.

Thanks for following up with me. Everything worked well. However, my dog ate most of the wiring from underneath the trailer. So I will need to pull all the old wiring and replace it. If you could point me towards a wiring harness that would work for this I would appreciate it!

Thanks for the follow up on your purchases with us. Sorry to hear that you will need to re-wire your trailer. I have provided a link to our existing 4-way wiring harness bout or you that would offer the trailer side wiring harnesses that you would need, and you can filter based on your needs.

Ask the Experts about this Curt Trailer Hitch

  • Curt vs Draw-Tite Hitch for 2017 Toyota Corolla, which is Higher Quality
    For overall quality the Curt hitches like the # C12136 that you referenced are the winners. We've found they seem to have the highest quality control whereas other companies we've seen the hitch tubes welded at almost an angle so the bike racks were tilted to the side. We've also found that their powder coat finish is the most durable. While the hitch adapter route isn't my favorite solution for carrying a bike rack the Curt will work for that.

  • What is the Best Class III Hitch for a 2012 Honda CRV?
    My recommendation would be the Draw-Tite Class III hitch # 75742 for it's increased capacity with a tongue weight rating of 675 pounds and a gross trailer weight rating up to 4,500 pounds. This provides you more safety margin when towing up to the maximum capacity allowed by your Honda CRV at 1,500 pounds if you intend to do more than just carry bike racks for example. It also has more accessible safety chain connection and has a bracket where you can mount your trailer connector. You...

  • How to Carry a Dirt Bike Using a 2016 Subaru Outback
    The best advice I can give you right now is to NOT use the Subaru hitch. The problem with it is that the hitch pin hole is dangerously close to the receiver opening meaning that on nearly all accessories there won't be enough of the shank in the hitch. The use of an adapter will reduce the tongue weight capacity of the hitch by 50 percent so I also do not recommend that for your 2016 Subaru Outback. The other issue is the tongue weight capacity of the vehicle itself. According to the...

Using a strap such as Item # 18050 with a Curt hitch will maintain the warranty and provide additional support. I've attached a review video that shows...

If you have the Thule T2 Classic 2 Bike Platform Rack part # TH9045 with the 1-1/4" receiver then you will want to use the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C12136.

  • 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...

  • Will Hitch Mounted Rhino-Rack 2 Bike Rack Work With Curt Trailer Hitch On 2016 Subaru Outback Wagon
    The Rhino-Rack 2 Bike Rack, part # RRRBC045 is compatible with the Curt trailer hitch you have installed on your Outback wagon. The bike carrier weighs just 33-lbs and has a capacity of 33-lbs per bike. If you are planning on carrying bikes with alternative frames like kids bikes or women's bikes I recommend using an adapter bar like part # 64005. This attaches between the seat post and the handlebar stem and allows the bike to be carried more level in the carrier while providing...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch Receiver To Fit A 2019 Subaru Outback Wagon
    The recommended hitch really depends on which model T2 you have. For the # TH9044 Thule T2 for 2" hitches you will need a 2" hitch receiver. In that case I recommend the etrailer.com Trailer Hitch Receiver # e98847. I like this hitch because the low profile design and matte black finish blends in the receiver tube so that it looks like it was always a part of the Subuaru Outback from the rear of the vehicle. Included is an installed example for reference. If you have the Thule T2...

  • Hitch For 2019 Subaru Outback Wagon With Best Ground Clearance
    A couple things to consider are that you want a hitch with the best ground clearance plus a bike rack with rise in the shank to reduce your odds of making contact with your driveway backing out. For a hitch, the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class II - 1-1/4" # C12136 is my recommendation as the hitch with the most ground clearance for your 2019 Subaru Outback. It actually sits about flush with the back of the bumper. What that's going to allow you to do is not have really...
