Installation Instructions for EcoHitch Hidden Trailer Hitch # 306-X7317  


Do you have installation instructions on this hitch?


Expert Reply:

I was able to track down the installation instructions for the EcoHitch Hidden Trailer Hitch Receiver # 306-X7317 referenced in your question and have attached the images from the manual below. I have also sent you a separate email with the PDF file of the instructions that you can review.

This 2 inch hitch is confirmed to fit your 2015 VW Passat and features a really sleek hidden design where only the receiver is visible behind the vehicle.

I have a 2016 Passat SE with the technology package. Is the trunk sensor the only one that would be affected by this hitch? I don’t need/use that sensor anyways, and this hitch seems to be the best available option.

The only trailer hitch we have available that's confirmed to fit your Passat SE with the Technology Package is the Draw-Tite # 24880. I believe there is more factory wiring that gets in the way of the EcoHitch model - more than just the trunk sensor.
