Video Transcript for Curt Trailer Hitch Installation - 2017 Chrysler Pacifica

Speaker 1: Today, on our 2017 Chrysler Pacifica, we're going to be taking a look at, and showing you how to install the Curt Class 3 Trailer Hitch Receiver, Part Number C13383.This is what our hitch looks like when it's installed. Now, you can see the cross tube. However, it does have a round tube design. It's nice and tucked under the vehicle, so it fits with the contour. This is pretty well hidden. So it's going to be a Class 3.

It's going to be two inch by two inch. Going to have a reinforced collar, give you a little extra stability on your receiver tube. Hitch pin hole's going to be five-eights inch in diameter. Safety chain ring's going to have plate style. You'll see it's got plenty of room for different size safety chain hooks.Now this hitch is going to have a 400 pound max tongue weight, which is a downward pressure on the inside of the receiver tube.

It's going to be 4,000 pound max trailer weight, which is the trailer plus the load included. Now, you can use weight distribution with this hitch. Tongue weight's going to go up to 500 pounds. Trailer weight's going to go up to 5,000 pounds. However, I do recommend checking your owner's manual to make sure your vehicle can withstand that amount of weight.

And you're going to want to pick the lowest number between the vehicle and the hitch.Now, let me give you a few measurements to help you in deciding on any hitch mount accessories you may need, such as a bike rack, ball mount, or cargo carrier. From the center of the hitch pin hole to the outermost farther bumper will be about three and a half inches. From the ground to the top innermost part of the receiver tube, will be about 13 inches.Now, let's show you how to get this installed. First thing we need to do to start our installation, is we need to remove this under-panel. We're going to be using an eight-millimeter socket, and you're going to have one, two, three, four, five, six screws that we're going to need to remove.

Next, we're going to use a ten-millimeter socket. And you're going to have two screws right back here in the back that are connecting these two panels. Using the same ten-millimeter socket, we're going to have one, two, three, four, five, six, seven plastic nuts. Next, we're going to take a flathead screwdriver, and you just put it up inside this plastic flat nut here. Sometimes, they'll all unscrew. If they don't, if you put a little bit of pressure on it, they'll pull down.Then, we're going to add two eight-millimeter screws, right here on the inside of the wheel well. Then we can pull our panel out, and we'll set it aside. It is going to have to be trimmed. And we'll set it aside for now. Next thing we're going to do is remove our exhaust. You're going to have an isolator here, and you're going to have one right here in the center. We're going to spray each one down with some lubricant just to help it come out a little bit easier. And then we'll take a pry-bar, make sure you be careful with he panel. We want to pry it off the bottom. Like that. And do the same thing with this one.Next, we're going to use a ten-millimeter socket. You're going to have two plastic nuts that are holding your heat shield on. One's going to be right here. One's going to be right back here. Get this out of the way. And we're going to have to trim this also.So now we're going to cut our heat shield. Per instructions, we're going to go 13 down and five in. We go from this edge, 13 down. I'm going to use a paint marker. A black magic marker will work too. We'll be taking off all this. I'm going to take some aviation shears, they're ten cents, to cut it.Next, we'll test fit it to make sure we have enough cut out so that we can get our hitch into place. Now we can reinstall our heat shield. We're not going to be using the plastic nut up there, because we cut that section off. We're going to be using the one towards the front of the vehicle, right over here.And here, on our driver's side, what we're going to do, we're going to take our pull wire. We're going to be using this hole and this hole. We're going to start with this hole. I'm going to put just a slight bend in the end of it. We're going to feed the spring end of of the pull wire up through the hole, and we're going to come out here. I'm going to take a spacer block, feed it through the hole. And you're going to take carriage bolt, thread it onto the end of the pull wire, push it up through the hole, back it out like that.For this back one, we're going to be doing what's called a reverse pull. First, we're going to put on our spacer block. Then we're going to thread in our bolt. Then we're going to feed the bolt first. And we're going to file this with the spacer block. You're going to do the same thing on the passenger side, with the exception: you're going to be using this hole also. So you're going to have three of these on the passenger side.Next, you'll see a little bolt here, or stud, with a nut on it. We're going to need to remove the nut. So we use a ten-millimamaeter socket to do that. And you're only going to have that on the driver's side.Now, with an extra set of hands, we'll bring the hitch in position. We're going to go over the exhaust on the driver's side. You want to make sure you feed your pull wires for the appropriate holes. Then we'll add on the flange nut. And we'll go ahead and add one on the other side that'll hold your hitch into place, 'til we get the remaining hardware in. Little tech tip: you are able to rest your hitch on your exhaust before you put it into place. Poll our wire off, and then we'll take one of our flange nuts, get it threaded on.Now that we've got one of our flange nuts on both sides holding our hitch in place, we can go ahead and install the rest of our hardware. Now, we'll take a three-quarter inch socket and tighten all of our hardware down. Now, put these back two on the passenger side, or two that are most forward toward the front of the vehicle. Probably a good idea to use a swivel to get it flush. Once you have them all tight, then we ca torque them to the specifications in the instructions. Then you're going to repeat that process for all remaining hardware.Now we can reinstall our exhaust. This time, we're going to start with the one in the center, and then do the one in the back with the same process. Right now, with a little bit of lubricant, it'll help it slide on a little bit easier. Next, we'll cut our underbody panel, per our instructions. Says to go from the center, from this hole, out six inches. I'm going to use just a black paint marker, because it kind of matches the panel. And then from that mark, we're going to come in ten inches. And then from that mark, we're going to come out this way. Then we'll take the aviation shears, and we can cut that section out.Now we can reinstall our underbody panel. Now, as you can see, we're still a little bit off, so we're going to go back and modify this just a little bit more, and give us a little bit more room. And we'll just keep repeating that process until we get it to fit in right. Once you have your underbody panel trimmed the way you need it, then you just reinstall it, in reverse order for the way you took it out.That'll do it for the look at an installation on the Curt Class 3 Trailer Hitch Receiver, Part Number C13383, on our 2017 Chrysler Pacifica.

A few places on the hitch where the paint had been scraped off when it arrived that I'll have to paint over before I install it--I live in Iowa where the road salt causes major corrosion. Other than that, product arrived quickly. It seems to be heavy-duty and high quality. Directions are clear, so I'm not too worried about install, provided that it fits right, which I'm optimistic about. 636307

I installed this on a 2018 Pacifica Hybrid. Mostly smooth sailing, except for 1 hiccup. I didn’t read the paper directions first, just watched the install video. Didn’t realize that there is a slightly different installation process for the hybrid, which the manufacturer recommends grinding the holes in the frame slightly larger to allow it to sit further back and avoid contact with the carbon canister on the driver side. Since I already had the hitch in place once I realized this issue, I searched some Pacifica owner forums and found an alternate solution, which involved slightly modifying the bracket which mounts the carbon canister to allow space for the hitch bolts. Wasn’t very hard, just a little extra time/work to figure it out. It would be nice for e-trailer to add a hybrid-specific install video. All told, install took about 3 hours for 2 fairly handy dudes, including searching forums and such. Final installation looks pretty clean. 597149

My only complaint about the hitch itself is that there is a small hole on the drivers side to accommodate a screw with a nut on the bottom of the car and the hole in the hitch is too small for the nut. I have done this job on a Dodge Caravan a couple of times before and found the Pacifica to be much more involved. First the bolts had to be installed into the frame of the car, then all the covers on the bottom of the car that needed to be removed, modified and reinstalled. It was a long and difficult process to do alone and without a lift. A floor jack is a must to lift the hitch and hold it in place while you put the nuts on and to take the drivers rear wheel off. There are 3 screws in the wheel well that hold the cover onto the rear bottom of the car. 514793

While the receiver generally fit and looks good, it did have a problem with the 2019 Pacifica Touring L. On the drivers side, there was a hole provided to fit over an unused grounding bolt that didn’t align. If I had access to a heavy duty drill press, it would have easy to redrilled a hole in the proper location. I did not so I was left with needing to grind and chisel away the bolt. Also, it was very difficult to reinstall the rearmost exhaust hanger due to the close proximity of the receiver support and the configuration of the hanger. 595870

Got this for a 2018 Pacifica Hybrid. Installation instructions were great, but it was a tough, two man job. Unfortunately the receiver is does not stick out far enough from the bumper. As the hybrids are not rated for towing the primary use for the hitch is going to be bike racks, and with our 4 bike 1-UP in the stow position the rack winds up being too close to the car to open the hatch...not an issue on any of our other cars (prius v, forester). Receiver really needs to come out another 3" to edge of bumper. We can still make it work, just not perfect. 526904

Ultimately, the hitch went on (1 star for that) and looks good (one star for that) for a total of three stars. The installation though was not as advertised. “Grounding stud” hole too small. Yep, had that. Had to “nudge” the stud a little with a hammer to get the hitch in position. This ultimately constrained the position of it so that, no matter how much I ground on the frame (for reasons left completely unexplained in the instructions but other reviews suggest it’s to help with carbon canister clearance) the hitch wasn’t going to move anyway! Which brings me to the carbon canister clearance. Had to modify that (also not in the instructions) so that it cleared the carriage bolts and nuts. This wasn’t hard since the canister mounting brackets are plastic but completely unexpected and appears to have been addressed by Draw-Tite with a $100 auxiliary bracket. One other issue is that, on tightening, the carriage bolt spacers rotate into the carbon canister nutplate and cause it to misalign with the (large) hole in the frame for it. To get around this, I placed the canister mounting bolt, torqued the carriage bolt nuts, then removed the bolt, ground the frame hole, and installed a new bolt as the 6mm 10.9 bolt from the kit had no threads left. Another one - the underbody panel trimming dimensions are not even close! See the photo. They’re off by nearly two inches from side to side and three inches along the length of the vehicle which, at the end of the day, doesn’t impact function but makes for a very frustrating and ultimately, ugly end result. How this is off by this much, I can’t begin to understand. Photos are included and I’m hopeful this can help someone get it right(er than I did). CURT! Please repeat this installation, revise the instructions and pay more attention to the Hybrid version. etrailer should do the same for the Hybrid with a video. I shouldn’t have to scour the reviews (reviewers, thank you for helping to bail me out and, yes, I’m wishing I would have read them ahead of time because I wouldn’t have bought this). I’ve done three other hitches including one Curt and two Draw Tites (and many other car projects) with zero issues. This one though took 5 hours and one unexpected trip to the hardware store for a new 6mm carbon canister screw. Not fun at all. Recommend against this hitch :( 690787


Comments

Thank you for your review. Unfortunately we have not yet had the opportunity to install this hitch on a Pacifica Hybrid. We will keep your review in mind if we have the chance to perform this installation.

I have used this trailer on our Pacifica Hybrid for three road trips around the midwest, the product has only been used for a bike rack as the Pacifica Hybrid is not rated for towing. The hitch has performed well with the vehicle. It did not sway or create any odd sounds. The one disadvantage is the hands-free lift gate sensors are blocked by some of the hitch and that function of the vehicle is impaired by the hitch. If that is not an issue for you this hitch is a great fit for those who want a fuel efficient van and the ability to haul some bikes on a rack. 683604

I installed this on a 2018 Pacifica Hybrid. The hitch installation went well. Most everything lined up correctly but there were a few places that did not go on as easily because I installed it on a Hybrid Pacifica. The kit did not come with a good solution for the emissions canister on the drivers side. They could have drilled the small hole on the drivers side slightly larger to accommodate the ground wire that needed to be removed. I did not like the idea of moving it because that was the factory grounding spot. Other than those two areas the installation went well. I would recommend it to anyone that needed a hitch. The hitch is well constructed and the installation instructions are accurate. 652977

For a trailer hitch I recommend Draw-Tite hitch # 76046 because with it only the receiver will be visible unlike other hitch options.

The use of this reducer sleeve will not reduce the tongue weight capacity of the hitch like other adapters will.
