Video Transcript for Trailer Hitch Installation - 2010 Hyundai Sonata

Today on this 2010 Hyundai Sonata we are going to install part number 24757 from Draw-Tite. This also applies to part number 60816 from Hidden Hitch. The first thing that we need to do to start off is we need to remove this panel right here. What is going to happen is the arm of the hitch is going to go right through this part of this right here. So we are just going to take it down and leave it off. It really does not serve much of a purpose and the hitch will be in the way anyways. It looks like there are two fasteners hiding back here too, one here and here. You can see that this is where, if the vehicle had dual exhaust, it would be in this spot here. So that is what that panel did, basically enclosed that area. 0:38

With the panel down, now we can see the attachment points on the vehicle. We are going to use this hole right here which has factory threads inside which makes it easy. And it is also going to use the center tie-down loop on the on the trunk panel. It is going to be the same thing over on the passenger side. However, the exhaust is going to be right next to it so it will be a little tight of a working area. But, we should not have to take down the exhaust. The first thing we do to start installing the hitch, we will start off with the U-bolt that goes over the tie-down point first. We will hang the hitch from that and then we will leave it loose so we can work our hitch around to line up with the holes on the side of the frame. 1:18

A quick bit about these fasteners. This is the bolt that goes inside the frame rail and this is the conical tooth washer. And they go together just like that. Okay, we have that one installed but we are going to leave it loose because we still need some working room back over on the other side, and that is going to be on the passenger side with the exhaust. Once we have all of our bolts started, then we can go ahead and snug them down into place. Alright, now that we have all of the bolts snugged down, we will go ahead and torque the bolts down as specified in the instructions. With those few steps our hitch is already installed and there you have it for part number 24757 from Draw-Tite. From the top of the receiver opening down to the ground on this particular vehicle it is 10-1/2 inches. And from the center of the hitch pin to the outer edge of the bumper is about 6 inches.

Installation of the hitch was a disaster. I expected to do the job in an hour or two with only minor part removal. This was not the case. The reason for purchasing the hitch was based on the instructions and video stating the hitch bolts to the existing car frame using existing welded nuts in the frame. This is not the case at all. The hole was there but no threaded nut. I had to remove the complete bumper and all the parts hidden by the bumper shroud. Then I had to remove the bumper extensions which go into the car frame and are used to hold the bumper in place. This allowed me access to the square tube frame and put a nut on the inside of the frame where your instructions stated the welded nut was supposed to be. It turns out the welded nut does exist but is much further in the frame (about 8 inches more) but would not work because the exhaust (mufflers) would be in the way to get the supports in place used by the hitch and were on the opposite side of the frame. I finally got the hitch installed which took more than 10 hours of real work (not clock time). Knowing what I know now I would have never bought the hitch and the wiring kit. It is not that the hitch was defective it was being mislead on the install time and the work involved to get the hitch installed. I restore cars as a hobby so I am very familiar with working on cars and modifying parts to get them to fit. I would definitely NOT consider this a DIY project for someone that does not have extensive knowledge of cars and the proper tools to do the installation. As stated with the wiring kits, I purchased twice before from eTailor and I liked their product. Unfortunately this installation was NOT the case. Sorry to see the quality drop to such a "poor" state. 79107

Hitch and other items delivered on time. The hitch was supposed to ship with a draw-bar (ball mount) but it wasn't in the box. Which by the way was excellent packaging. Called upon receipt and checking the box and was told the missing item would be sent out today (Monday). Very good customer service. The hitch itself was easily installed and the video proved to be invaluable. I will save a trip to the storage lot to deliver the tow caddy by pulling it with the vehicle that will be pulled behind the motor home. This is my second purchase from them and have been very satisfied on both occastions 88385

I was very pleased with the hitch and wiring harness. The installation of the hitch went ok tight working conditions without benefit of being able to raise car off the ground, however a good product and good fit. The installation of the wiring harness was very easy, a fine product. I don't like wasting my money! The purchase of the tube cover was a waste of money, due to the fact that the hitch came with one. Your rep. should have made me aware of that. Overall I am very satisfied with the products and the prompt delivery. Thank You ! 97471

So far I like the ease of how it installed according to my mechanic. He said the hardest part was cleaning out the holes in the frame to prepare them for the hitch bolts. Looked very discreet on the rear of my Hyundai. Now as for What a knockout of a company. They hit on all the notes for great performance. Was really impressed. Special Kudos to Wayne - he do know his stuff. But so did the other person I talked to. Amazing experience! 91955

Quick delivery. Very clear instructions. Easy to install. I cleaned the threaded nuts that were in the frame of the car just to avoid complications. Cut a slot in the plastic trim that had to be removed so it could be replaced. 111437

  • Does the Exhaust have to be lowered to Install a Trailer Hitch on a 2009 Hyundai Sonata
  • Installation on a 2009 Hyundai Sonata with single exhaust is going to be nearly identical as in the video showing installation of Hidden Hitch Trailer Hitch, # 60816, on a 2010 model. The two different years are part of the same generation and the hitch attaches the same way in both models. This is quite possibly the easiest installation I have seen for a hitch.
