Video Transcript for Curt Trailer Hitch Installation - 2018 Subaru Crosstrek

Speaker 1: Today on this 2018 Subaru Crosstrek we'll be having a look at and showing how to install the CURT Class 3 trailer hitch receiver, part number C13382. Here's what our hitch looks like installed. One thing that you'll notice about this hitch is that the main frame of the hitch is mostly hidden behind our rear fascia. The only part you really see hanging down is our actual receiver itself.On the side of our receiver you'll find our industry-standard 5/8" diameter hitch pin hole to secure any of our hitch-mounted accessories. You can pick up a pin and clip on our website as part number PC3. Welded onto the bottom of our receiver you'll find our safety chain loops.

They're a rolled steel design. They have a fairly decent size opening for you to attach your safety chains from your trailer onto. On the back of our receiver you'll find this collar that's welded on to help improve the strength of the receiver opening and to give us a nice finished look.This hitch features a 525 pound max tongue weight rating, which is the amount forcing down, and a 3,500 pound max gross trailer weight rating, which is the amount it can hold. You want to make sure that you consult with the owner's manual of your Crosstrek and not exceed what the vehicle is rated for. Go by whichever number is lower.Now for a few measurements to better assist you in choosing any hitch-mounted accessory you may need, such as a ball mount, bike rack, or a cargo carrier.

You're looking at about 15" from the ground to the top of the 2" receiver opening and about 2" from the center of the hitch pin hole to the rearmost part of the back bumper. Now that we've gone over some features, we'll show you how to get it installed.To begin our install we need to have a look at our vehicle's frame rail. On both sides we will find some rubber plugs that we need to remove. We find three rubber plugs on our frame rails. We're looking at the driver side.

We only need to remove the front one and the back one. It's the same on the passenger side. We'll use a flat head screwdriver and pry out the plugs.Now our front access hole here, we need to enlarge it slightly for our hardware to pass through. You can use a file or a grinder. I'm going to use a rotary tool in order to enlarge it.

With our hole enlarged, our spacer block will now slide through, as well as our bolts. We'll do the same for both sides on the forward hole.Now we'll take our pull wire, insert it into the back hole. It will come out the front hole. We'll take our black, place it on the wire, insert inside our frame rail, thread our carriage bolt onto the wire, push it inside the frame rail, pull it through our hole. Now we'll take a second pull wire, place our block on, thread on our carriage bolt, insert our bolt inside the frame rail, followed by our block. Then we'll pull our bolt through. We'll make sure we leave our pull wires attached. Now we have our hardware in place, we'll take some spray paint and cover up where we notched out to help prevent any rust. Now keep in mind, anything we do on one side we'll repeat on the other side.We're looking at the top of our hitch right now. This is the front; this is the back. We need to have a block on the top on the front hole that will go between the body of the vehicle and the hitch. This will ensure that it's level. Now in order to make it easier for us to get the hitch in position with the block there, we are going to tape these blocks to our hitch. We'll have one on each side of the hitch.Now with an extra set of hands we'll raise our hitch into position, feeding our pull wires through the holes in the top of the hitch. Make sure we place them in the right holes. We'll raise it up over our exhaust. With it in place, we'll remove our pull wire and we'll thread on one of our hex flange nuts. Now we use a 3/4" socket and tighten down our hardware. Now we'll torque our hardware to the amount specified in the instructions. That completes our look at and installation of the CURT Class 3 trailer hitch receiver, part number C13382, on this 2018 Subaru Crosstrek.

Beautiful product at a great price! Nice welds and powder coating, well built. All the hardware needed. I removed the rear bumper cladding to install. Looks complicated but not. Got the hardware in place and tightened down. No cutting needed or enlarging of holes. The inside plate washers toward the front of the car need to be longer. They spin and will not get a grip to tighten the bolt. The leveling washer should be round to conform to the factory depressed impression. a round galvanized construction J-bolt washer did the trick and was thinner than the square supplied, so you could stack a couple to get a better increments of level. I ordered the 989900 ball mounts. They are beefy!!! Other than the stitching on the bag handle breaking, the receivers are well built like the hitch receiver. 443327

The C13382 appears to be a well constructed hitch. It took more time than the 60 minutes for a DIY, but that's probably because I didn't have all of the tools at the ready and I wasn't rushing. I substituted a Dremel for the die grinder and that worked fine. Lifting the hitch into place was the hardest part. I lifted it into place slowly by placing blocks under the center(hitch area) while using a scissor jack to alternately raise each side adding blocks and jack stands and until I could start the first threads. If you use the supplied spacers the 2 forward carriage bolts may be just a wee bit short. If I had to do it again, I'd leave out the leveling spacers or purchase 2" carriage bolts. 440427

This rack is far superior to the Subaru factory rack at a fraction of the cost. Installation went well with a person helping for an extra set of hands. Bryan at etrailer provided fantastic customer service. 439776

I am an auto mechanic and it took me 45 minutes to install hitch and wiring. I had to grind an 1/8th inch of the frame away to get flat washers up inside the frame.I used rust proof sealant to cover the grind area to prevent rust. The instructions were clear and it went as instructed. You will need a die grinder or you could file the metal away. It looks good...... You do not need any tools to install the wire harness. Just access the spare tire area and there is a plug under the rear sill plate you can just plug the harness into. 448566

I had this professionally installed by a local shop and they told me the fitment is great and it's easy to install (with the right tools and a helping hand). I like how most of it is kind of hidden behind the bumper. 439785

Received my hitch about 3 days after ordered. That was a fast shipping. I just got it installed on my 2018 Subaru Crosstrek today Very excited how it turns out. Thanks etrailer and those who left their reviews. If it wasn't for you guys, I wouldn't have found this great hitch. By the way, the OEM hitch from Subaru costs over $400. Really happy to have found this one!! 446982

I really like the way this hitch tucks up behind the bumper except the actual receiver box. It gives a clean look for our vehicle. The design allows you to install it without dropping the exhaust or anything. The only negative point is that the hardware does not fit in the access hole, so some grinding and touch up paint was required. 466699


Comments

Denise, The Curt Hitch C13382 for the 2018 Subaru Crosstrek does require filing or enlarging the access holes in your frame. We do not recommend grinding the hardware of the hitch or the hitch itself because it can affect the structural integrity of the part.

Pretty straight forward install, took about an hour. Definitely a 2 person job to get it up into position and get the nuts started. Check your torque wrench range. Seems to be a quality product. I like how the main part of the hitch is tucked up high and hidden. 457730

Do you have a question about this Trailer Hitch?


  • Is the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch for a 2018 Subaru Crosstrek Hidden Like the Curt Hitch
  • I have included a picture showing what Draw-Tite trailer hitch # 76209 looks like when installed on a 2018 Subaru Crosstrek. (It may take a little while for the picture to appear.) The crosstube on this hitch will be visible below the rear fascia on the back of the vehicle. Like you said the Curt hitch # C13382 is mostly hidden with the exception of the receiver. The difference is tongue weight capacity between the 2 hitches is not a factor because the vehicle itself has a maximum tongue...

  • The install of the Curt hitch part # C13382 on a 2018 Subaru Crosstrek does not require drilling but it does required you to enlarge the access hole that you sent us a picture of. I attached a picture of the step in the install instructions that covers this. A dremol tool would be the most ideal tool to accomplish this but a file could work as well.

  • The rear fascia/bumper on your 2018 Subaru Crosstrek does NOT have to be trimmed, cut, or modified to install Curt trailer hitch # C13382. I have included a link below to the installation instructions for you to view. I checked with Curt and they list trailer wiring harness # C56040 as the correct wiring harness for your 2018 Crosstrek. I also recommend etrailer ball mount kit # 989900. It comes with 2 ball mounts; one with a 3/4 inch rise or 2 inch drop and one with a 2-3/4 inch...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch Receiver for 2018 Subaru Crosstrek Limited
  • We only have one trailer hitch receiver confirmed to fit your 2018 Subaru Crosstrek. It is a 2 inch receiver however, which I believe is the better option due to your accessory options as well as the strength of the hitch. I recommend the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class III - 2" # C13382. You can use a hitch reducer like the Hitch Reducer 2" to 1-1/4" Trailer Hitch Receiver # HT02 to give you the 1-1/4 inch opening if you wish.

  • Which Ball Mount Should go With Curt Hitch C13382 on 2018 Subaru Crosstrek?
  • We haven't yet been able to do a test fit on a 2018 Subaru Crosstrek with Curt hitch # C13382, so the exact measurement from the top of the hitch to the ground is not yet known. Based on the 13 inches from ground to coupler on your trailer and recent heights from the Crosstrek and it's Impreza brethren, you can use the MaxxTow Adjustable-Height Ball Mount # MT70068. This mount does come with a pin and clip though you'd need 2" hitch ball # 40038 to go with it. I've added a link to a...

  • Can Step Bit be Used to Enlarge Frame Access Holes to Install Trailer Hitch on 2018 Subaru Crosstrek
  • There isn't a specific amount that the access holes on the 2018 Subaru Crosstrek have to be enlarged to install Curt trailer hitch # C13382. But it isn't going to be much and you can use a step bit. That 1-3/8 inches is more than enough so only go as large as needed to fishwire in the blocks and bolts. I have linked the instructions and a video showing an example installation of the hitch for you. If you plan on doing some towing I recommend etrailer ball mount kit # 989900. It comes...
