Video Transcript for Trailer Hitch Installation - 2013 Toyota Corolla - Curt

Today on our 2013 Toyota Corolla well be installing the Curt Hitch, part number C11265. This is what our hitch will look like once its installed. Next well go ahead and give you a couple measurements to assist your selecting accessories for your new hitch such as a ball mount, bike rack or cargo carrier. From the center of the hitch pin hole to the outermost edge of the bumper is 4-3/4 inches. From the top of the receiver tube opening to the ground is 11 inches. Now to begin our install well first go ahead and point out the attachment points. Well have a total of four attachment points. These attachment points are weld nuts built into the frame by the manufacturer.

Now before we attempt to install the hitch and the new hardware supplied with the hitch well want to clean out each one of these attachment points. To clean them out we use a half inch nylon tool brush, part number 814092. Well spray down the weld nuts and then thoroughly clean it out with the tool brush. To verify that we have cleaned it out well go ahead and take one of the new 12mm bolts and thread it into the weld nut to make sure itll go nice and easily. Now that we have all the weld nuts cleaned out were ready to install the hitch. Well be securing the hitch with the new 12mm bolt and a half inch conical tooth washer. The teeth of the washer will face the hitch.

Well install each fastener finger tight until we have them all in place. Now with all of our fasteners in place we can go ahead and run them down. Next well torque to specifications as indicated in the instructions. Keep in mind that each process we do here on one side well repeat identically on the opposite side. Now with our hitch secured and torqued to specifications were ready to hit the road. That does it for the install of the Curt 1-1/4 Inch Receiver Tube Hitch, part number C11265 on our 2013 Toyota Corolla. .

I received my Curt Trailer hitch for the sole purpose of mounting into the rear of my wife's 2012 Toyota Corolla SE in order to mount the Thule Doubletrack Bike Rack that we ordered June 2013 and had been using on the rear of truck. To save fuel to and from our biking destinations we order the Curt Class I hitch for her Toyota. It arrived on the estimated date of delivery. Immediately removed it from the cardboard box it was and with the included bolts and washers I installed in literally five minutes time. My wife helped me hold it place while I hand-threaded the bolts into place. With a 19mm, 3/8" drive socket and a 9" extension (needed to reach between the tailpipe and the frame up to the bolts on the passenger side...driver's side done with just the socket). I torqued it to the specified 85 foot pounds of torque with a 3/8" torque wrench and I was done. The hitch looked great by itself, and mounting the rack into the hitch was a cinch and looked great also. On a side note...the Thule Double Rack Bike Rack also purchased earlier from Etrailer when folded up, does not interfere with view of the brake and taillights. As a repeat customer, I was also given Express Customer Service, and my order was literally on it way out for delivery within two hours of placing my order. has been awesome to work with, and they have become my go-to source for all things trailer-related. Thank you :) 124022

I ordered this hitch for my 2014 Corolla for use with my Swagman XC bike rack. I am pleased with the quality of this hitch, it is much heavier duty than I expected. It bolted up easily with the supplied hardware and looks great. Hardly noticeable. The bike rack fits perfectly. Now I am ready to hit the trails. 143553


I use the hitch for my bike rake. The hitch was super easy to install and looks good on the car. I have recommended your site to several others.

Found installation instructions on and knew what I needed to do before it was delivered. Install was easy. Installed by myself. Everything lined up and installed exactly as described and shown on the website. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for easy ordering, quick delivery and easy to follow instructions. 203940


Works great! Have used the hitch and ball to pull a trailer and had no problems. My Corolla handles it quite well.

Trailer hitch for a 2012 Corolla. Product was packed for extra protection. This is really great because their is nothing worse than receiving something damaged. Product was very simple to install and only took 20 minutes. Looks great on the car. I highly recommend etrailer for any trailer hitch. 193877

Shipping was free and fast. The product was well packaged and in perfect condition. I never saw better instructions! Color pictures of my exact vehicle plus every help I needed. Also very few companies even carry a hitch for a Toyota Corolla. It is well constructed and I thought a fair price. 166909

Awesome, from start to finished. Save $$ by installing receiver hitch myself, would not have attempted without your videos. Showed my exact car and model for the install. The Swanson bike rack is excellent, very easy to install. Very impressed with 206426

First and foremost a kudos goes to Christy B. for handling my order by telephone with skill, courtesy, and aplomb. A tip of the hat goes to all the staff behind the scenes to make this operation so smooth. This hitch for a 10th generation Toyota Corolla is precisely manufactured and painted. Installation with the included hardware was a breeze. Note: If your Corolla is equipped with a custom or aftermarket exhaust such as the well made Borla cat-back kit, the rear hanger standoff might interfere with the right side hitch bracket. Suggest checking and if necessary devise a minimal work around. As most know, paint quality is only part of the equation. Base metal prep is important and I will assume I should not be concerned. 159288

Trailer hitch goes onto 2008 Prius. Except, now I have to trim plastic off pan protector on my car. Also, protection is held on with plastic rivets which are not easily removed. 189540


The products are still working great. I have no complaints.

I received my Curt hitch for my 2014 Corolla 3 days after placing my order. It appears to be an attractive and well made hitch. My biggest challenge was the cleaning out of the 3/8 inch tapped holes since my car was 2 years old and I live in Michigan where winter roads are treated with chloride etc. Other than that it was a piece of cake. I propped the hitch up on two one gallon paint cans with a rag on each to prevent scratching. I was able to install without extra assistance. Have a flashlight handy as it may be helpful. I had watched the video ahead of time and that was what closed the deal for me. I encourage anyone to watch the video! It really is not a complicated task. 267727

I bought this recently because my 96 Ranger became unsafe to drive...frame rust among other things. I still need to haul things so I put the hitch on my Corolla, and with a new light trailer, am back in business. The slotted holes made installation easy. Because of the age of my car [06] it had a lot of corrosion and debris in the nut holes so I had to buy a tap [$5 at a big box store] and clean them out before installing. The round tubing is sleek and unobtrusive. The only negative; the receiver tube had a light burr on two sides, probably from the cut off process during manufacturing, so I had to use a flat file about ten strokes to allow the ball mount to slide in 160085

I bought many hitches over the years always had them installed and this place had the best price, awesome web sight to look at everything and clear easy to read instructions. plus the whole unit looked great. it stated it should take an average person 20 minutes to install and they were right minus time it took myself to find my own metric socket but went on sooooooo easy. great service, shipped lightning quick, good looking addition for the car as well. 314068

The Curt trailer hitches are consistently my favorites. And etrailer consistently offers the best prices out there. I install the Curt hitches myself, and Curt makes it easy. On older Toyotas you may need a tap to clean up the threads. Curt also improves their product over time, e.g., I've installed two hitches on 2008 Corollas, and the most recent hitch was better designed than the first one because they reconfigured it to make tightening the bolts easier and more accessible. My only complaint is that one of the bolts that came with the hitch had the wrong thread count, and I had to drive 30 minutes to a hardware store to buy a replacement. 181206

folks this is how a business is supposed to be ran. as soon as the order was placed i received an email from George J at e trailer with phone number to contact the company and a link to track the product. the product was very well made and fit properly .the snap on wires for the trailer was super good no cutting wires on your vehicle so my review is very good products very very good service thanks 235602


the trailer hitch and wiring are both working well for us after about a years use . after having this thing for awhile i find it is just what i needed . i like the fact that when it is not being used the wiring goes in the trunk out of the weather .

Got here fast, even at my semi rural address. All parts taped on, good thing because one part of the bracket was hanging out the box end. Wore through the cardboard, after the interior cardboard support got crashed, so maybe a bit of a wrapped foot padding to help that out a bit ?? No scratches, but could have been worse. The more visible round tube was good, whew. Looks like a good product at a good price, saved me over $100. in installation cost, and higher hitch cost at local shop. Thanks, will use you next time too. 264775

I have a 2004 Toyota Corolla. Shipment was fast even with the holiday. Parts and bolts all securely packed. I also ordered the 1.25 to 2" adapter. Installing: I couldn't get the bolts to catch to screw in so I tapped the weld nuts and that did the trick. Local stores have the single 12-1.25 so I didn't have to buy an entire tap and die set. After that the installation was pretty straight forward. I wish I would have thought to investigate a hitch years ago versus carrying the bikes on a trunk carrier. 402941

The hitch appears well made and was super easy to install. 86 foot pounds of torque is required to tighten the 4 bolts into the car frame so Popeye-sized muscle is required. The wiring T-connecter was also easy to install. Make sure you order the correct hitch (I goofed and accidentally ordered a hitch for a Scion). That was a $50 mistake in return UPS fees. I still have not received reimbursement for the returned hitch. Their order shipping was fast. Come on eTrailer, credit my return! 151826

It was easy to install with some difficulties. Screw holes of my Corolla was rusted badly, and bolts refused to go in. I had to clean up holes with WD40 really good, and that was time consuming. Also somehow torque wrench didn't click using upside down, so I had to guess tightening the bolts. Overall it feels pretty solid. No problem hauling a couple of mountain bikes. There was no problem with etrailer. Good communication. Arrived products packed nicely. 406592

I ordered a trailer hitch and wiring kit for my Toyota Corolla. Everything in the kit fit perfectly and the wire kit was a breeze to plug together. Everything is working great. Free shipping was a bonus!! The videos on the etrailer website were extremely helpful. My main issue was getting the bolt hole free of corrosion to bolt the hitch on..took a lot of PB Blaster, WD-40, and a wire brush for 1/2 inch plumbing fittings. I would use again! 198354

I will say that this product truly exceeded my expectations. First to mention I will say that this trailer hitch is probably now the most structurally sound element to my 2006 Toyota Corolla. The hitch was delivered on time, packaged well and installed in less than 10 minutes. I don't know how this product could be made any better at this tow class rating and price point. I could see this hitch costing twice as much and still being a good buy. 280146

I like the round bar because it looks much better than the square bar. This hitch is tucked up under my Corolla very nicely. Also, the chain mount is better. This chain mount is cut out of a flat bar. You have to tilt your S-hooks up at an angle to slide them on and off. Therefore, they can't pop off in transit. Your S-hooks might have a wider opening than mine. If so, bend them tighter. 275441

This is my third hitch Curt hitch from etrailer and each has fit perfectly. Shipping was on time, packaging was fine & hitch was undamaged. Install is a little easier with two people, but I did ok by my 71 year old self. Most time consuming part was cleaning out the bolt holes. Use WD-40 & a wire brush. It really makes a difference. 242731

  • Bike Rack Recommendation and Comparison of Yakima FullBack and HalfBack 2-Bike Trunk Racks
  • Honestly, the best way to prevent scratches to your vehicle's paint is going to get a hitch mounted rack. The difference between the Yakima HalfBack # Y02636 and the FullBack # Y02634 is that the FullBack comes with integrated locks that lock the bikes to rack and rack to vehicle. We typically recommend a fresh wash and wax before installing any trunk rack. It is important that the rack be installed securely to reduce bouncing or movement, which causes scratches.

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for a 2017 Toyota Corolla
  • Yes, Curt trailer hitch # C11265 will fit the 2017 Toyota Corolla. But if you plan on using the hitch for a bike rack or cargo carrier and not towing I recommend Draw-Tite hitch # 24913. The reason is that for the Curt hitch Curt requires the use of stabilization strap # 18050 when using their hitch with any non-trailer load for their warranty requirements. Draw-Tite does not have that requirement.

  • Bolt Size to Install a Trailer Hitch on a 2004 Toyota Corolla
  • The weldnuts in the frame for your 2004 Toyota Corolla to install a trailer hitch are M12 nuts. The bolts used to install a hitch, # C11265 as an example, are M12-1.25 x 30mm grade 5. It is recommended to clean out the weldnuts prior to installing the hitch. Road grime and corrosion can get compacted in the threads and you would not be able to thread in the bolts without first cleaning the weldnuts. I have included some links to the right that should help. If you plan on doing some...

In your case you have the owners manual saying one thing and a Toyota dealer saying another. You might try contacting another dealer, but if they told you that your vehicle is okay to tow then they are saying the warranty of your vehicle would still be good through them if you were to tow a trailer and have any issues in the future.

Our manufacturers do not make hitches with higher class ratings to fit your vehicle. As you saw in a video, having a Class I hitch does mean that hitch mount bike racks are limited to carrying only 2 bikes. There are 4 bike carriers that will fit in a Class I hitch receiver, but they are limited to carrying only 2 bikes when used with a Class...

  • Receiver Hitch Recommendation for a 2008 Toyota Corolla LE
  • You are correct, the Curt and Draw-Tite receiver hitches all look very similar and also offer the same weight capacities. The biggest difference between the two brands of receiver hitches for your 2008 Toyota Corolla is the fact that the Curt, # C11265, requires the use of stabilizing straps, # 18050, for all non-trailer loads like bike racks, cargo carriers and so forth. Failure to properly support these loads will void your hitch warranty from Curt. The Draw-Tite brand does not require...

  • Does Draw-Tite Class I Trailer Hitch Receiver # 24913 Include Ball Mount, Pin and Clip
  • You are correct that the Draw-Tite Sportframe Trailer Hitch Receiver # 24913 includes a ball mount, hitch pin and clip. The Curt hitch # C11265 includes the pin and clip, but not the ball mount. Please note that the availability of hitches for any given vehicle does not necessarily mean that vehicle can tow a trailer. I was not able to verify any tow rating for your Corolla. Your owners manual or local Toyota dealership should be able to offer clarification of the vehicles capacities. All...

  • Distance from Ground to Bottom of Curt Trailer Hitch C11265 Installed on a 2016 Toyota Corolla
  • With Curt trailer hitch # C11265 installed on your 2016 Toyota Corolla the distance from the ground to the bottom of the hitch will be approximately 9-1/4 inches. It measures 10-3/4 inches from the ground to the top of the receiver opening. If you want to use the hitch for an accessory such as a bike rack or cargo carrier then you have to make sure the accessory is rated for use with a Class I trailer hitch. Also, with a bike rack, you are limited to 2 bikes maximum on a Class I hitch. Curt...

  • Can Trailer Hitch on 2015 Toyota Corolla Be Removed After Each Use
  • The Curt Class I hitch, part # C11265 is indeed a fit for a 2015 Toyota Corolla. As you can see by looking at the installation hardware I've linked, The hitch installs using four bolts that insert into nuts that have already been welded into the frame at the factory. No drilling is required, and no modifications will be required other than removing the tow hook if it's present. No welding is required, in fact the hitch warranty would be voided if it were welded or otherwise installed...

  • Hitch, Ball Mount, and Trailer Wiring Recommendation for a 2009 Toyota Corolla
  • The Curt Hitch part # C11265 that you referenced has been confirmed as a fit for your 2009 Toyota Corolla. The thing about Class I hitches like this is that you can only use the recommended ball mount for the hitch otherwise it voids the warranty. For this hitch the recommended ball mount is the part # C45521. For a 2 inch ball you would then want the part # A-82 and then for trailer wiring you would want the part # 118459.

  • Hitch and Roof Rack Recommendations for 2013 Toyota Corolla
  • You would need to start with the hitch. I would recommend the Curt Class I receiver, part # C11265. Although the hitch has a towing capacity of 2000 lbs, my research indicates that the Corolla is limited to towing 1500 lbs. Therefore, you will need to ensure that the fully loaded weight of your trailer does not exceed 1500 lbs. You will also need the appropriately sized trailer ball for your coupler, part # 19256 for a 1-7/8 inch ball or # 19258 for a 2 inch ball. You will also need...

  • Muffler is Touching Vertical Plate on Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C11265

  • Comparing the Receiver to Bumper Clearance for Trailer Hitch Receivers for a 2015 Toyota Corolla
  • I will go ahead and give you the measurement for the 3 hitches that are a confirmed fit for your 2015 Toyota Corolla. From the center of the hitch pin hole to the outermost edge of your bumper will be as follows: Curt # C11265 - 3 inches Draw-Tite # 24913 - 2 inches Hidden Hitch # 60345 - 2 inches Since they all have 1-1/4 inch receivers it really just depends on what you are planning to use the hitch for when it comes to deciding which is best. They all have the same weight...

  • Height from Hitch Pin Hole to Top of Arms on Yakima FullTilt 5 Hitch Bike Rack Y02463
  • On the Yakima FullTilt 5 Hitch Bike Rack # Y02463 the vertical distance from the hitch pin hole up to the top of the arms is 41-inches according to my contact at Yakima. When you have bikes loaded overall height will increase based on the diameter of the bikes' top tubes. For instance, if you loaded a bike with a 2-inch top tube, then the top of that frame tube would be approximately 43-inches above the hitch pin hole. Please note that your vehicle, a 2016 Toyota Corolla, cannot accept...

  • Recommended Class I Trailer Hitch Receiver and Bike Rack for 2014 Toyota Corolla
  • The receiver opening of the Curt # C11265 and Draw-Tite # 24913 are both square openings. They're both a 1-1/4 inch Class I trailer hitch receivers that will fit your 2014 Toyota Corolla. I've attached install videos of both of them for you. With either hitch you will need to use a bike rack that will fit a Class I hitch receiver. Even though Class II accessories still fit a 1-1/4 inch hitch receiver it doesn't mean it will fit a 1-1/4 inch Class I hitch. I've linked an article that...

  • Availability of Euro-Style Ball Mount for Curt Class I Hitch Installed on 2009 Toyota Carolla
  • The Curt # C45561 Euro-Style ball mount you referenced is exactly what you'll need. The ball mount will work fine with your # C11265 Class I hitch once it's installed. Keep in mind that the ball mount carries a 3500 lb towing/350 lbs tongue weight rating, but that your hitch is only rated for 2000 lbs towing/ 200 lbs tongue weight. Because of that difference in capacity between the hitch and the ball mount, you'll need to abide by the rating of the lower rated component, which would be...

  • Thread Tap Size Needed To Clean Out Weldnuts in Frame for Hitch Installation on 2005 Toyota Corolla
  • The Curt Class I hitch, part # C11227 uses an M12-1.25x30 bolt. The bolt is 12mm in diameter, the thread pitch is 1.25 (meaning the threads are 1.25mm apart) and 30mm long. You'd need a M12-1.25 thread tap. If you haven't tried scrubbing out the weldnuts, you might try that first. Our installers have found that a steel brush like the one included with the # DW00254 battery terminal cleaner works very well. Soak the threads with a penetrating lubricant and allow it to soak for awhile...

  • Will the Kuat Transfer 2 Bike Rack Fit a 2012 Toyota Corolla S
  • The Kuat Transfer 2 part # TS02G would fit and work well on your 2012 Toyota Corolla S as long as you have a hitch installed on it like the Curt Class I Round Tube Hitch part # C11265. When we installed this hitch on a similar 2012 Corolla we found that it had 3-3/4 inches from the pin hole to the outside of the bumper which would be more than enough for the Transfer to fit. The Transfer has 7-1/2 inches from the pin hole to the edge of the carrier when folded down and 5 inches when...

  • Trailer Hitch and Hitch-Mounted Cargo Carrier for 2005 Toyota Corolla
  • Curt light-duty Class I hitch # C11265 is indeed a correct fit for your 2005 Toyota Corolla and provides a 200-lb maximum tongue weight (TW) capacity. In cases like yours where the car's TW capacity is likely to be lower (150-lbs) that lower limit does become the overall capacity for the system. Wiring harness # 55542 is a fit for your Corolla and installs without cutting or splicing any wires. We do offer cargo carriers that will work great with a 1-1/4-inch Class I hitch like the Draw-Tite....

  • Ball Mount Recommendation for a Curt on 2014 Toyota Corolla
  • With Class I hitches like the Curt hitch part # C11265 that you referenced you have to go with the ball mount that they recommend otherwise the warranty of the hitch is voided. For that you would need to use the part # C45521 which is the Curt ball mount required with your hitch. This has a rise of 2-5/8 inches and a drop of 3-1/4 inches. For a 2 inch hitch ball you'd want the part # A-82, or for a 1-7/8 inch ball you'd want the part # A-80.

  • Hitch and Cargo Carrier Recommendation for a 2007 Toyota Corolla
  • When dealing with towing capacities for a vehicle the final authority is always the vehicle's manufacturer. If in your case Toyota says that your vehicle can't handle the tongue weight of your wheel chair carrier I can't recommend you attempt to carry it on a cargo carrier like the part # C18100 that you referenced. A side note here is that this carrier wouldn't fit the hitch on your vehicle as this is designed for 2 inch hitches and you most likely have a 1-1/4 inch hitch on your vehicle...

In order to keep the tires straight you can use hook and loop straps # SR26260. I have linked a video featuring these straps for you.

Since the two cars do not use the same frame the hitches for one do not fit the other.
