Video Transcript for Curt Trailer Hitch Installation - 2013 Ford Taurus

Shane: Hi, I'm Shane with E-trailer.com. Today we're gonna be taking a look at and I'm gonna show you how to install the Curt class three trailer hitch receiver on our 2013 Ford Taurus.This is what our hitch is gonna look like when it's installed. You can see, the only thing we can see is our receiver tube. Our cross tube is completely hidden behind our bumper fascia, so it's gonna maintain a nice clean look on the back of the vehicle.It's gonna be a class three hitch, two inch by two inch receiver tube opening. We're gonna have a reinforced collar, so a little extra stability there. Hitch pin hole's gonna be five-eighths inch in diameter.

We're gonna take a standard five-eights hitch pin, hitch pin and clip does not come with this hitch, however it can be found here at E-trailer.com.We're gonna have rolled steel style safety chain loops, you can see we have very large openings, to further accommodate different size safety chain hooks. As far as our weight capacities go, we're gonna have a 400 pound max ton weight, which is the downward pressure on the inside of the receiver tube.For 1,000 pound gross trailer weight, which is a trailer plus a load included, I always recommend checking the owner's manual of your vehicle to make sure the vehicle can withstand the amount of weight. You're gonna pick the lowest number between the vehicle and the hitch. You cannot use weight distribution with this hitch, and Curt's gonna require the use of stabilization straps for any non-wheeled loads.Now, let me give you a few measurements to help you when deciding on any hitch mount accessories you may need such as a bike rack, a ball mount or cargo carrier. From the center of our hitch pin hole to the outermost part of our bumper, is gonna be about six and a quarter inches.

This number's important for any of those hitch mount accessories that may fold up against your vehicle.From the ground to the top innermost part of our receiver tube, is gonna be about 12 inches. This number's important for any of your hitch mount accessories that may require a little bit more ground clearance. Now, I'll show you how to get it installed.We're gonna start by lowering our exhaust. We're gonna have two isolators, we're gonna have one here, one on that side. And to make it a little bit easier, we're gonna go ahead and remove our center one also.

It's a good idea to take some soapy water, silicone spray, anything like that to lubricate the isolators to help 'em slide off the brackets a little bit easier.Let's take a pry bar, you'll wanna work those off. Now your directions aren't gonna tell you this, but if you notice how our exhaust is kind of hanging like that, we have two isolators upfront to keep our exhaust from twisting, 'cause we don't wanna mess up our pipe up there on the front. But, it seems to be putting a lot of stress on this isolator right up here. And the one up there in the front, it's taking that and pushing it up like this.So I'm gonna use a strap, and I'm just gonna hook it between, I like doing it from the springs. And this is, all we're doing is just helping support and taking some of that tension off up there in the front like that.

Then we need to remove our exhaust brackets from our frame rails. Driver side bolts are gonna be a little bit smaller than our passenger side.Driver's side, 10 millimeter, and then our passenger side will be an 18 millimeter socket. And we're gonna be using this hole and this hole here on our driver's side. You take your pull wire, we're gonna go through this hole and come out our back one. Spacer block looks like that, put it on, push it up into the hole after you put it on your wire. You're gonna take a carriage bolt and you wanna thread it on to our wire. It might be easier if you push the head side up first, and you're gonna pull it out of the hole.Then, for our next hole, go ahead and take your hardware and put it onto your pull wire. We're gonna do it backwards this time, we're gonna push our bolt up into the hole, then our space block, and pull it down like that. And then for our passenger side, we're only gonna be installing this back one.We're gonna have a couple of little fasteners here on our lower fascia, we need to remove those for now. Just take a plastic trim panel tool, screwdriver, something like that and we're just gonna work it out like this 'cause we need to get access to this bracket right here and these holes. And you'll have another one right here next to it.I'm gonna take a half inch drill bit or a die grinder. We're gonna open up this inside hole per the instructions. We're gonna do that same thing on the other side. With an extra set of hands, we'll get our hitch into place. We're gonna feed our pull wires through the corresponding holes, remove your pull wire and we'll put on a flange nut.For our second bolt on our passenger side frame rail, we're actually gonna be using the existing weld nut in the frame that we took our exhaust bracket down from. You can see here, I just have a hex bolt, conical tooth washer, you wanna make sure the teeth are facing up towards the hitch. We're gonna take our handle nut, we're gonna go up like this and line it up with the hole we just drilled out. We're gonna take our smaller hex bolt, conical tooth washer again, make sure the teeth are facing up towards the hitch and we're gonna thread it through the hitch into our handle nut. We're gonna do that same thing on the other side.Then, we're gonna tighten and torque all of our hardware to the specifications in the instructions. Repeat that for all remaining hardware. And we're gonna take our rubber isolator, we're gonna put it on this bracket on our hitch on both sides, and we'll do the same thing on the other side. We're gonna take this that we've took out, and we're gonna have a hole right there on the side of our hitch, or in the bottom and we'll reinstall just like that. That's gonna reattach your lower fascia.Once you've tightened and torqued all your hardware to the specifications in the instructions, you can go ahead and reinstall your exhaust. Once you've installed your exhaust, if you used the strap, go ahead and remove that and you're ready to go. That's gonna complete our look at and installation on the Curt class three trailer hitch receiver on our 2013 Ford Taurus.

Easy install. Great fitment. Thanks 521823

The installation of the hitch on a 2012 Taurus was very easy with the neat fishing wires. I used a wire snake that I use for threading wire to send the black wire along the driver's door channel and went through the firewall towards the outside of the power brake diaphragm directly to the battery. Definitely view the video before starting installation. Would definitely recommend product to friends. 544854

The installation went as the directions explained, although in my case it took longer. If I did it again I feel it can be done in the time listed in the instructions. The hitch is well hidden behind the bumper except for the receiver socket. 524176

Comments

The most typical fit issue that happens with a hitch is the bolt holes not lining up perfectly. The mounting brackets of the hitch are made of a softer steel than the rest of the hitch, so that the hitch can flex to a small degree as the vehicle hits bumps or rough pavement. This flexibility can allow the mounting flanges to get tweaked out of position during shipping and handling. If this accurately described what happened with your hitch, we have a help article that shows how to easily get the hitch back into position.

I was surprised that this was actually available for my car. Received it in a timely fashion and properly boxed. Everything was there and bolted right up, directions were good. Took me about 2 hours start to finish. Looked good on the car and was not ugly. I have sold the car but didn't actually use the hitch. But I was not concerned about the quality. Would buy again. 610898
