Fits perfectly on my 2016 Audi Q5. With the aid of the video that I found on YouTube, I took my time doing the work and got it done by myself in less than 2hrs. Bike rack is now mounted!

I must Say I am very impressed with the customer service that was provided. I made a mistake on my order, and was able to get in touch with customer service in a little less than 5 minutes to resolve my issue. The item was shipped really fast! I received it maybe 2 days after ordering (it helped that I live in the neighboring state) but nonetheless it was quick to arrive. The item looks solid and has a nice gloss paint scheme to it with no big decals which is nice. Installation was not very challenging, it took maybe 1.5 hours. Once installed the trailer looks amazing, it sits subtlety underneath the car which is a big plus. I went ahead and purchased a hitch as well and it all looks great together.

Still holding up strong! Been through a lot of towing this past year and it has held up very well. Definitely a great investment if you plan on towing light or heavy loads.

Purchased this for my 2014 Audi Q5 TDI. Easy installation. I have purchased same hitch for my 2015 Audi Q5 TDI several months ago and no issues what so ever towing. Solid hitch along with clean appearance of factory install. Self Installed myself.

2014 Audi Q5

Watched the installation video a few time before actually installing hitch and it was a breeze. It took more time gathering the tools than installing it. I didn't put it on the lift as backing onto ramps gave me plenty of room and I was able to use the floor jack with a couple 2x6 blocks to raise it into position without needing another person. The holes all lined up great. I did knock one C bolt into the body but with the fish wire and a section of a wire hanger I worked it back into position. Great product.

Audi Q5

Certainly an acceptable compromise to a factory-installed hitch. I don't remember Audi dealer option sheets even mentioning a factory hitch, but, I also didn't think I'd ever pull something with her Q5 (that's not really its mission). But we carry the Q5 on an Aluma 20ft open car hauler behind a Tiffin Allegro RED with 10K towing capacity. When we stop at destinations, I frequently have to maneuver the trailer into a back-in storage slot someplace on the campground. That's what the eTrailer hitch allows. The Q5 has no problem pulling a 1500lb aluminum car hauler to a parking space and backing in. I did not install wiring because there's no intent to be on a public road with the trailer--although in an emergency I would just 'Bogart' it. Also, eTrailer should advise buyers that your after-market design on a Q5 will need an 8-inch hitch-receiver extension to reach out beyond the rear bumper. I have a pic, but your website upload form isn't accepting a pic--even less than 500kb.

2015 Porsche Macan

Great hitch but came with too short of carriage bolts. They need to be about 1/4 " longer for the Macan. Also it did not come with Porsche Macan instructions.I only had to trim the rear cover 1/2 x3/4" and it looks factory. I did speak with a tec guy a curt about the issues an he could have cared less.I liked there hitch and your service ,this my third hitch from you and I would order again .I mail you before the hitch got here and they e- mail a full copy of instructions for both Audi Q 5 and Porsche Macan to me that should have came with my hitch.Thanks to woman who helped me with the mail. Just a heads up i spent over 30 years as auto tec for Three different car lines so I know my way around a car and this is my 5th hitch that I have installed. Great shipping speed. I tried to order a cargo carrier but the shipping was to much .I should have ordered it when I ordered the hitch. Thanks Frank

Good morning Frank,I have a 2015 Macan S that was built by my local dealer without roof rails or the tow package. I am looking at options outside of the ridiculously expensive Porsche OEM Hitch that needs to be installed by the dealer. Since you are a Macan owner I was hoping you could provide me with some feedback on the Curt13136 hitch. I was hoping to utilize this hitch to transport my road bike and possibly a 18 trailer. I was wondering how you handled the wiring since Porsche does not want to sell this outside of their OEM hitch solution. Any feedback you can provide would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

The wiring is available from Porsche now ! You will need a harness for the fuse box a control box and a harness to the trailer wiring, you will spend about $400 for the set up and will have it matched up to your car at the dealer, Then you can buy a plug that fits ur hitch wiring harness to match the 4 pin trailer plug Check the Macan Porsche site. I have heard they charge one hr @ 135 per hr,if you dont need the wiring right now I would wait for Curt to come out wit one later at a fraction of the cost.The dealer has a step by step install with photos on how to but u will need to capture the pics with your phone flash off.I may be doing this in a week or so ,if you get back next week will have all the pics and info u needA lot of money but I could have kicked the salesman for not telling me the factory install was a must @ $600,

I must admit up-front that removing the bumper facia on my 2015 Audi Q5 was intimidating, however after watching the video [online] I felt confident that even I could complete this install. The install was not too difficult but also not exactly like the video. You just need to see where the trex bolts are in the wheel well by feel. The hitch is well hidden and looks like part of the original vehicle. Overall I am very happy with the product and am proud to have drone it myself and not ruined my car! Thanks etrailer and Curt.

Everything fit up good. The only problem is on the 2016 Porche Macon it is to far under the vehicle. I had to buy a extension which lowers the weight it can handle considerably.



- C13136

I don't know how to to change my oil, but I was able to install this hitch! I watched the video a couple of times, and it seemed pretty straight forward. It took me over 2 hours, only because I was super careful and have never done any work on my car or know much about cars. You definitely need 2 people to perform this task since someone has to hold the hitch in place, while the other person aligns the rack, and screws on the nuts in place. When placing the hitch in, line up the pieces in the furthest away first, then line up the holes in the front where the u-bolts are supposed to go. Tip: I didn't have a jack, nor did I really need one, but for more space to work with, I parked it over a curb to gain 6 inches of more space to work with. I believe that the trickiest part is when you have to push the u-bolts into the hole, put the rack over the hole alignment, then pull on the fishing wire to pull out the u-bolts again so it goes through the rack. If you are too forceful with shoving the rack in, the u-bolts get wedged/jammed, and it becomes difficult to pull on the fishing wire.

2016 Audi Q5

The installation on 2016 TDI Q5 took about 90 minutes, mainly due to initial confusion with the plastic bra with no removable fascia. After some prodding and removal of the internal plastic element (had to be unglued to avoid breaking it into pieces), the hitch went into place in about 30 minutes, 20 more to properly put everything in place, screw it all down, and voila. The end effect is slightly different from a factory installed unit, but looks solid and reliable. We will see how it fares the Colorado weather and winter salt. The installation can be done in the driveway, with ramps, as long as you can find driveway with some elevation. My next project is to get the wiring harness, and make it look like the factory provided one, running it through the bottom baggage compartment. Shipping was quick, much quicker than expected, with no issues with the box, wrapping quality, etc. Some extra protection would be welcome as far as the hitch itself, just in case UPS does not handle it so gently. The installation instructions (video) could be also done on a unit with no removable fascia to help people out. That would save me some initial pain of trying to work it out so that no plastic elements need to be trimmed down or cut.

It is very good and of high quality. It took them quite sometime to work on my order and shipping too (almost 2 weeks) may be due to the pandemic but after I received it, I was really impressed. I followed the video and it took me 45 mins working on it by myself. I recommend it to anyone looking for a hitch like that. Good job guys.

The product was okay. the packaging was a joke. The installation was a challenge. The threaded fish wires to install the U-bolts work great, but before fishing the U-bolts out on final installation when the hitch is in place, switch the wires to the upper portion of the U-bolt, it makes it much easier to fish the U-bolt ends through the holes

Arrived at 6:30 pm had it in by 8:30 pm 4. 2.5 days from order to completion... seriously, didn't expect that. 5. email notification - had video of install requirements - priceless. 6. Product and hardware - all there, great condition 7. Install just like video - fishing the u-bolts, that was a trick, but the tolerances of everything were spot on and worth the extra effort. 8. End product looks fantastic, just what I wanted. 9. Took some pics - just a couple. Enjoy

Instructions are really unhelpful for when I'm trying to get the hitch over the u-bolts. Instruction for installation and tools are lacking. Taking way longer than planned and the instructional video glosses over the hardest part and doesn't have enough details.

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch and Wiring for 2014 Audi Q5 Hybrid
    I recommend using the Curt # C13136 on your 2014 Audi Q5 Hybrid, which will provide you with a 2" hitch receiver that is well suited for towing a trailer. It looks like your Q5 hybrid has a 4400-lbs towing capacity, so you'll want to make sure that you stay under that to avoid damaging your vehicle, but this hitch will allow you to tow up to that capacity. Since you're going to be towing, you'll also need trailer wiring, a ball mount and hitch ball to complete your towing setup. For...

  • Hitch Recommendation for a 2015 Audi Q5 That Doesnt Require Stabilizer Strap
    Curt does require the use of a stabilizer strap like part # 18050 when carrying a non-supported load like a bike rack on your 2015 Audi Q5 if you were to use their hitch part # C13136. Failure to use this strap will void the warranty of the hitch. An easier solution for you might be the Draw-Tite Hitch part # 75940 that you also referenced as it does not have the same requirement. This hitch has been confirmed to fit your vehicle as well and would work great. I attached a help video...

  • 2-Inch Class III Hitch for 2013 Audi Q5 2.0T
    The aftermarket trailer hitches made for your 2013 Audi Q5 2.0T are indeed the 2-inch size that will accept a 2-inch rack like the Thule T2 and both hitch options we have are shown on the linked page. Both the USA-made Curt # C13136 and the Draw-Tite # 75940 have the same 750-lb tongue weight rating, but the Curt will require use of a stabilizing strap # 18050 for use with your bike rack. The Draw-Tite does NOT have this requirement but its installation will be more challenging. So...

  • Does the Curt Hitch # C13136 Fit the 2015 Porsche Macan
    The Curt Hitch part # C13136 that you referenced is designed to fit your 2015 Porsche Macan as well as an Audi Q5. The install pics we have on our site show this hitch installed on the Q16 which has a different lower fascia than your vehicle. In the picture I attached you can see that the crosstube is largely visible when this hitch is installed on a Q16. On the Porsche models the cross tube is behind the rear fascia that will get trimmed slightly. It won't sit as high up as the OEM...

  • Is a Stabilizing Strap Required to Be Used on a Curt Hitch # C13136
    Since Curt specifies that you have to use a stabilizing strap like the part # 18050 when carrying non-supported loads such as a bike rack or cargo carrier I would recommend you use one even if the combined weight of your rack and bikes is 130 lbs. Using two straps like you referenced would be a great idea considering that you would not want to damage your spoiler. I attached installation instructions for the # C13136 for you to check out also. I also attached a link to the hitch...

  • Best Aftermarket Trailer Hitch on 2014 Audi Q5 TDI w/ Audi Side Assist Feature
    We only have one hitch option still available for your 2014 Audi Q5, as the others have been discontinued. I spoke with Curt Manufacturing about their Class III # C13136 which is compatible with the TDI model Q5. The manufacturer told me that they have no information and have received no reports about the hitch interfering with the Side Assist feature. The same applies for any settings in the vehicle computer that would need changing. Your Audi dealer might be able to provide more information...
