Does the Rear Appearance Panel of a 2014 Toyota Sienna Get Trimmed When Curt Hitch is Installed

Question:

Im interested in purchasing the Draw Tight trailer hitch for my 2014 Toyota Sienna. On viewing your how-to-install video it looks like the mechanic didnt reinstall the appearance coverifoot after the trailer hitch was installed. If that is correct is the appearance coverfoot not necessary? Would leaving that part of the under car area uncoveredfoot lead to corrosion or any other damage? Thanking you in advance!

Expert Reply:

The underbody panel of your 2014 Toyota Sienna will need to get trimmed to install the Curt Hitch part # C13105 that you referenced. If you check out the installation instructions and the install video I attached you will see more info on how it gets trimmed.

Leaving the panel off would be an option, it wouldn't cause any corrosion or have any undesired effect as this is just an appearance panel.
