Will the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Fit a 2000 Volkswagen Golf 1.8 Liter Turbo


Will this rack will work for a 2000 VW Golf 1.8 turbo? The dealer claims that racks are not possible due to the exhaust setup in back resulting from the turbo. It would help if I could see details about how this rack will connect to my car.

According to Draw-Tite, Hitch # 24679 will fit a 2000 Volkswagen Golf including turbo models (GTI). I have included a link to the installation details for you to view so you can determine if anything under the vehicle will interfere with the hitch.

If you plan on doing some towing, the correct ball mount is # 3594 and you can use pin and clip # PC2. For a ball use # 19256 (1-7/8 inch diameter) or # 19258 (2 inch diameter). For trailer wiring, use harness # 119178KIT. I have included a link to a video showing a typical installation of this harness.
