In order to have enough working room to install the Curt Class III Round Tube Receiver Hitch # 13354 on your 2008 Acura MDX, the exhaust and spare tire must be temporarily lowered. The heat shields will also need to be removed for installation, but can be reinstalled once the hitch is installed.

To gain access to the holes closest to the bumper you may need an extension or a crow's foot to reach between the hitch and bumper. In the installation video it looks like our installer used an extension.

I have attached the installation instructions as well as an installation video of this hitch on a 2008 MDX for you.
