Is a Hitch Available for a 1998 VW Jetta TDI that Does Not Require Drilling or Trimming


Is there a hitch available for my Jetta that will not require drilling and no cutting of the facia? Thank you in advance for any assistance you can provide.

I checked with all of the hitch manufacturers that we stock and all of the hitches that are available for the 1998 Volkswagen Jetta require some sort of drilling and/or trimming.

If you need a hitch for your Jetta, I would recommend the Draw-Tite trailer hitch, # 24594, because it does not require drilling into the interior of the vehicle or trimming the rear fascia, see instructions link. You will need to drill four 1/2 inch holes, two in each side of the frame.

I recommend using a 1/2 inch Rotabroach hole cutting tool to make drilling into the frame easier. We have some hitch installation tips for you to look over also, see link.
