How to Install a Trailer Hitch on a 2010 Hyundai Sonata

Today on this 2010 Hyundai Sonata we are going to install part number 24757 from Draw-Tite. This also applies to part number 60816 from Hidden Hitch. The first thing that we need to do to start off is we need to remove this panel right here. What is going to happen is the arm of the hitch is going to go right through this part of this right here. So we are just going to take it down and leave it off. It really does not serve much of a purpose and the hitch will be in the way anyways. It looks like there are two fasteners hiding back here too, one here and here. You can see that this is where, if the vehicle had dual exhaust, it would be in this spot here. So that is what that panel did, basically enclosed that area. 0:38

With the panel down, now we can see the attachment points on the vehicle. We are going to use this hole right here which has factory threads inside which makes it easy. And it is also going to use the center tie-down loop on the on the trunk panel. It is going to be the same thing over on the passenger side. However, the exhaust is going to be right next to it so it will be a little tight of a working area. But, we should not have to take down the exhaust. The first thing we do to start installing the hitch, we will start off with the U-bolt that goes over the tie-down point first. We will hang the hitch from that and then we will leave it loose so we can work our hitch around to line up with the holes on the side of the frame. 1:18

A quick bit about these fasteners. This is the bolt that goes inside the frame rail and this is the conical tooth washer. And they go together just like that. Okay, we have that one installed but we are going to leave it loose because we still need some working room back over on the other side, and that is going to be on the passenger side with the exhaust. Once we have all of our bolts started, then we can go ahead and snug them down into place. Alright, now that we have all of the bolts snugged down, we will go ahead and torque the bolts down as specified in the instructions. With those few steps our hitch is already installed and there you have it for part number 24757 from Draw-Tite. From the top of the receiver opening down to the ground on this particular vehicle it is 10-1/2 inches. And from the center of the hitch pin to the outer edge of the bumper is about 6 inches.
