How to Install a Trailer Hitch on a 2007 Kia Sportage

Today on this 2007 Kia Sportage were going to install part number 90621, from Hidden Hitch. First step well go ahead and lower the exhaust by removing two rubber exhaust hangers on the drivers side and one on the passenger side of the vehicle. Now well spray down the exhaust hangers with lubricant to make them easier to remove. Then well go ahead and remove the tow hook bracket by removing five bolts. Now on this vehicle therell be two bolts on the drivers side that we had to remove as well. Thats where the hitch will mount up.

This will be identical on both sides of the vehicle. At this point we can go ahead and install our hitch. Its a good idea to get an extra set of hands to help hold up the hitch while I install the hardware. The hardware with the conical tooth washers you want to make sure that the teeth on the washers are always facing toward the hitch. With our hardware loosely installed well go ahead and tighten it down and then torque the bolts down as specified in the instructions.

With the bolts torqued down we can go ahead and reinstall the exhaust. Thatll finish it for our install of part number 90621, from Hidden Hitch, on our 2007 Kia Sportage.
