How to Install a Trailer Hitch on a 2007 Chevrolet Impala

Today we are going to install part number 90137 on a 2007 Chevrolet Impala. And this also applies to part number, from Draw-Tite, 36407. First we will show you where the hitch mounts up on the vehicle. It is going to mount up on the frame here - we are showing the drivers side. You use these two existing holes in the frame, and also this outside hole in the frame here, too. It will be the same thing on the passengers side. However, we are going to have to temporarily lower this exhaust so we have working room to get up in there. And then the exhaust will go back up when we are done. OK, we have got our exhaust down all the way now, and we will use our strap to pull it off to the side, and we will go ahead and start installing our hardware. What is going to happen is these plates and bolts will go inside this hole here and come out this hole and this hole. It is going to be pretty simple. We are going to run our bolt leader from one, out our access hole. Slide it on our plate - just pop that inside. And then screw on the bolt, pop it into place and back through. OK, we will do the same thing for the hole outside here, too. Same principle: just go through one hole and back out our access hole. This will use two of the longer of the six bolts. At this point, we can go ahead and install our hitch, since we have got all our hardware installed.

We will just slip one-half of the hitch on top of the muffler. And we will start with the drivers side first. Then we can do the two inside bolts here. At this point, try to center the hitch on the frame. You will get a little bit of movement, maybe like 1/4 inch of so. Try to keep it as even as possible on both sides. And at this point, you can just snug the bolts down to keep it from moving. At this point, you can go ahead and tighten down the bolts to their final torque, as specified in the instructions. After your bolts are torqued down, let us go ahead and put the exhaust back up. And that covers it for part number 90137 from Hidden Hitch.
