How to Install a Trailer Hitch on a 2005 Chevrolet Uplander

Today we are installing a Curt hitch, part number 13336 on a 2005 Chevrolet Uplander. First we are going to remove the rubber exhaust hangers and lower exhaust hanger bracket on the passengers side. All right, the next step, it says, is to remove the fascia, but due to previous wiring installation on this model it has already been removed. And the next step, it says, is to disconnect the lower compressor from the drivers side, but this model is not equipped with it. All right, the next step is to use a fish wire to run the carriage bolts and the spacers through the access slots in the frame rail, leaving the carriage bolt and spacer inside the frame rail until the hitch is raised into position. Now you repeat on the passengers side. Now, the next step is to lift the hitch into place and secure it with the bolt and washer.

Now that the hitch is up, pull the bolts through the frame rail that you just installed with the hitch fish wire. Be sure to reinstall the frame rails on the drivers side and the passengers side. Be sure before you tighten your hitch completely, when it is still a little loose, to move the hitch around to try to get it centered the best you can before you tighten everything up. Now that you have the hitch up and installed, it is time to reattach the fascia and the compressor, but in this model they have already been removed. When you are done installing the hitch, you have to torque all the bolts to its desired specifications in the instructions. All right, now that completes our installation of the Curt Hitch part number 13336 on a 2005 Chevrolet Uplander.
