Video Transcript for Curt Class I Trailer Hitch Installation - 2019 Mitsubishi Mirage

Rob: Hey, everybody. Rob here at etrailer.com. Today, we're going to be taking a look at the CURT Class 1 custom-fit trailer hitch receiver on our 2019 Mitsubishi Mirage. I think it's got a pretty clean look. The cross tube is visible. However, it sits so low on the car that it's really not seen that much, unless you're looking from underneath the car.

Now, one of the challenges when you have a Mirage, is being transporting things. It's a rather small car, which comes in handy when you're trying to save fuel economy. But again, when you're trying to get a bike somewhere or maybe some large gear, there's not a whole lot of room in there.A roof rack is an option to put bikes up there, but I myself am a little bit on the shorter side, and I don't really like the idea of lifting my bike above my head right next to the paint. Just a scary thing to me, so I really feel like a hitch is a better option to transport all those things, because we can put a bike rack in there or a cargo carrier, and free up some space inside. Now, it is a Class 1 hitch, which means it's going to give us that inch-and-a-quarter by inch-and-a-quarter receiver tube opening, and it is going to be limited to Class 1 accessories.Now, the way we're going to mount all of our accessories, is through the hitch pinhole here on the side.

Our hitch is going to accept a standard half-inch pin and clip. Now, these do not come with the hitch, but you can find them here at etrailer.com along with some locking devices to make sure your accessories are secure, and anti-rattle devices to cut down on that annoying rattling sound when we're driving down the road.Now, if you do plan on doing some light-duty towing, keep in mind there is a specific drawbar or ball mount that's made for this hitch. Now, again, you can find that here at etrailer.com, but if you are going to be towing, obviously you need a spot to hook up your safety chains. Here, we have a plate-style welded to the bottom of the receiver tube. If you have some normal-sized hooks, you can see we've got plenty of room to hook them on and take them off without any kind of interference.

If your trailer has these really oversized large hooks, you can see we can still get them on, but that flange on the lip here does make it a little bit of a tight fit.Now, obviously, the weight ratings is going to be an important factor when you're looking at a hitch. Now, this hitch is going to be rated for a 200-pound tongue weight, and that's going to be the maximum downward force at the end of the receiver tube. You'd be able to carry maybe one or two bikes with you, which should be great, because we're not really going to have room to put two bikes in our car.At the same time, it's also going to have a 1,500-pound gross trailer weight rating. That's how much the hitch can pull, but that does include the trailer and everything we have loaded on it. Now, I do always recommend that you double-check your Mitsubishi's owner's manual, because that's the ratings for the hitch, and we don't want to exceed the manufacturer's rating for the car.I'd like to give you a few measurements, and these are going to help you out whenever you're looking for accessories for your new hitch.

From the center of the hitch pin hole to the outermost edge of the bumper is going to be right about three inches. That measurement is going to come in handy when you're looking at folding accessories, to make sure you have enough room and they're not going to come in contact with the rear bumper. From the ground to the inside top edge of the receiver tube opening is right about twelve and a half inches. Now, at that height, I definitely recommend a bike rack or cargo carrier with a raised shank. That way we can get a little bit more ground clearance out of it.Now that we've seen what our hitch looks like and gone over some of the features, let's go through the installation process together. To begin our installation, we want to come to the back of our Mirage and we're going to start on the passenger side. So we'll come underneath and find the frame rail. On the bottom of the frame rail, you're going to notice that we have several holes on the bottom here. So we need to get some hardware in place.We want to take our pull wire, take the coiled end. What I like to do is just estimate about how much wire you need to reach from your mounting location to the access hole. I'll put a bend in it and it just helps guide the wire through. We're going to put the coiled end in first, and feed it back towards the access hole. Hopefully, it should come out just like this. If not, you can put your finger in and reach for it, but you want to make sure that both ends are coming out of the frame.Now, they even put a small bend in it, so the tail doesn't get sucked in. We're going to grab our square hole spacer block. We'll slide it over the coiled end, and inaudible 00:04:11 take a carriage bolt, and we're going to thread it onto the wire. Then one piece at a time, we'll push it back into the frame, and you just want to grab the end of your pull wire. Might have to jiggle a little bit, but we want that bolt to come down through the mounting hole.Now, what I like to do, since these are so close together, is I'm going to put a small bend in my pull wire. Then I'm going to feed the coiled end into the hole that I want my hardware to come out. Then you can see it just curves over to the access hole, so I can pull the coiled end out of there. Now, it's really important that you leave both ends of the pull wire out of the frame, and you don't pull it all the way through. We're going to grab a square hole spacer block. We'll slide it over the pull wire, and we'll take our carriage bolt and thread it onto the end of the coil. One piece at a time, and push the block into the frame.You may have to get past that bend in your wire. Then we'll push the carriage bolt into the frame. It may take a little bit of jiggling, but we'll pull it down so the bolt comes through the hole. Now, it's going to be the same method for this one back here. You just want to start your coiled end in and use that same combination of square hole spacer block, and then your carriage bolt, and pull everything down through. Now, I do suggest leaving the pull wires on there because it's going to help prevent the bolt from getting pushed into the frame, and even if they do, we can pull on the pull wire and drop them back down.Now, we're going to move over to the driver's side frame rail and get our hardware in place. Once we get to the frame rail and started looking, we'll notice that we're not going to have as large of an access hole. We're going to have four smaller holes, and obviously our same amount of hardware and the same size hardware is not going to fit inside any of these. So we are going to have to enlarge this hole at the very back. Now, you can do that a couple of different ways. You can just get a large drill bit and enlarge it, you can use a file, just about whatever you have to enlarge this.While you're doing it, you do want to periodically check to make sure your carriage bolt fits and your block fits in there, because we only want to enlarge it big enough so that our hardware fits in place. I'm going to be using a step bit, and again, periodically checking in between every so often to make sure my hardware fits in there. Once you have the hole enlarged enough that you can get both pieces of hardware in place, I always suggest using a little bit of spray paint to cover up any of the exposed areas, so hopefully it will prevent any rust or corrosion from building up.The process for getting our hardware in these holes is going to be the same. Our access hole will be one mounting location, and the somewhat larger one towards the front is going to be the other one. Just get all of our hardware in place, the same way we did on the other side. Just be really careful on this hole when you're reaching in to get the pull wire, because we did just drill it out, so you don't want to cut your finger on any sharp edges.Now, the final piece of hardware we need to get in place before we lift our hitch is going to be this U-bolt. This U-bolt, we just want to drop so that it wraps around the center tow hook, right at the bottom of the trunk pan here. Now, I do suggest getting an extra set of hands to help you lift up the hitch. That way you're not trying to support both sides, and it just makes it a little bit easier to at least get one piece of hardware in.Now, whenever you lift your hitch up, you're going to want to feed your pull wires from the top, going down through the hitch. It'll make it easy to align everything up. You want to make sure you feed your pull wires from the top, going down. It'll help line everything up, and just make it a little bit easier for those bolts to come through. Lift it up. Make sure the bolts are coming through the frame. You want to remove one of your pull wires, and then we're going to have this flange nut.You want to get at least one piece of hardware on each side. That way, the hitch won't fall down and hopefully it'll support itself, and we can get the rest of the hardware in place. Be real careful not to push that bolt into the frame, so what I like to do, if you can, is just push on the hitch to one side and then I'll trap it, keep it from spinning. I'm going to get that nut started and get the rest of them in place. Now, in that tow hook, where we put our U-bolt, you want to make sure that the legs are coming through the slots on the hitch, and then we'll secure them down with two flange nuts, just like the rest of the hardware.Now, for our outer bolts, we're going to use an 11/16 socket to tighten them up. You just want to make sure we go through and snug all the hardware down. For the two flange nuts on our U-bolt, you can use a 9/16 socket or a 14-millimeter socket to snug them up. I do suggest alternating between the two, so it doesn't get in a bind. Just tighten up one side, move to the other, and alternate going back and forth.I'm going to come back with a torque wrench, and I'm going to torque all my hardware down to the specified amount in the instructions. Again, with the flange nuts on the U-bolt, I do suggest alternating going back and forth, so you get an even pressure when it clamps down. You want to make sure you go back and repeat that for any remaining hardware that you have. Once you have all your bolts torqued down, that'll finish up your installation, and your look at the CURT Class 1 custom-fit trailer hitch receiver on our 2019 Mitsubishi Mirage.

This is my second time buying and installing this hitch. These hitches are fantastic I bought a new car Saturday order the hitch on Monday installed it Saturday that's how much I like these hitches I did not wait to order it or install it.. I would say it took me about 45 minutes to install it I was not in a big hurry and took my time and I took a break too. The only thing that you have to do that makes it a lot easier to install on the driver's side back of course you can see in the picture that is silver Bolt it holds the fuel line you need to remove it to get access the bigger hole behind it to slide fish your bolt through it is a little tight but it does go through no drilling new holes at all that's it. Passenger side you can access the bigger hole with no problem nothing blocking it. Again these hitches are fantastic very easy to install I use them to haul. My bicycles around. GuyBob

The installation instructions called for a dye grinder to widen up a smaller access hole to get the carriage bolt and washer through. I was able to locate a different hole under the bumper that I could use instead. The installation was a little tricky but only took about 45 minutes.

Very easy to install, both the hitch and wiring harness. I recommend using a step drill to enlarge the hole. Took about 30 seconds.

I am very impressed with retailers customer support. After waiting for my hitch that was on backorder, they offered to substitute another product and it was here in a couple days. No wonder I use this company as my go to hitch provider. Thanks again

I bought this because my little car is too tiny to haul everything on vacations. I bought the wire harnesses that matches my car to go along with the reciever and BOTH matched up to my car perfectly. Both products had videos on how to install them which was awesome, I didn't have to read any instructions on either product because the videos were so good and covered everything on the install. I had ZERO issues and will always come to etrailer first from now on. It was refreshing to find a company that is everything they claim to be.

Uhaul and Croft in kcmo and kansas said this hitch was backordered for 3 months I found etrailer on line and it was a very reasonable price and shipped directly me within 20 days this is a great company .

Fits as it should. 45 minutes to install, didnt even lift car off the ground. For 2020 Mirage hatch, remove the bolt holding the fuel line bracket to see the access hole. Without drilling into the driver side of the car.

Easy to install, didn’t widen any hole just loosened the bracket on the drivers side to access the hole. Took less then 60mins but I’m slow. Looks great! Thanks

I use it for my bike rack, and it works and looks great. Because I have it on a very small car (only 3 cylinders) I don't use it for towing anything.



- C11394

I have to say that it was easy to install you just have to take your time and not hurry. I accidentally put the space up there and the bolt fell down so it took awhile to get the space back lined up and both properly in. One other thing you got to be careful with is taking the feed spring off the bolt take your time. Be careful not to push the bolt up In the frame and just hold the bolt lightly with a finger to get the nut started again extremely easy just be patient and don't hurry it. Great quality product and Great looking too.

I bought this for my 2017 Mitsubishi Mirage and with help from their install videos, it was easy to install. While 1-person could install, I highly recommend two-people to help hold item in place when aligning and tightening the bolts. The order process from etrailer was easy and prompt delivery. The hitch itself is of high quality and while my car is small, I did tow a rental trailer from Chicago to Phoenix, although caution needed on tow-weight for this "class" size. I also ordered the light-wiring kit which was also easy to install. I will definitely be buying from etrailer again!

I purchased this hitch to install on a Misubishi Mirage so that I could continue to use my hitch mounted bike rack from my old car. After a year's use it continues to carry my bikes without issue.

I really like it. After a false start trying to figure out the fishwire bolt installing tool, I looked up the video on YouTube to learn the reverse pull technique and after that it took about 30 minutes to get it on. I can now haul 2 big bales of hay home on the back of my little Mit.

Your product was easy to order, shipped out and arrived quickly. I had it installed at a auto repair shop for bucks. It will work perfectly for the wheelchair Carrier I bought . Also great for bycicle rack. You had the best price, just as advertised.

Excellent instructions, all the better because they were specific to my exact car, even including color photos. That said I wish more detail was included as to enlarging a frame hole. Instructions said to use a die grinder but did not recommend a bit type. Having never used a die grinder before I was left guessing as to what type of bit to use and went thru some frustrating trial & error before I got it.
