How to Install the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch on a 2008 Audi Q7


Speaker 1: Today on our 2008 Audi Q7 you're going to be taking a look at at, and we'll show you how to install, the Draw Tite Class III Max Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver. Part number 75950.This is what our hitch looks like when it's installed. As you can see the cross tube is completely hidden behind the bumper fascia so it's going to maintain a nice clean look. Our receiver tube is not going to stick out past our bumper fascia so we're not going to have to worry about bumping our legs or our shins on it when we're loading and unloading the vehicle.This hitch is going to be a Class III hitch. It's going to be 2" by 2". Hitch pin hole is going to be 5/8" in diameter.

So it's going to take a standard 5/8" hitch pin which does not come with your kit, or with your hitch. However, they can be found on our website using part number PC3. You're going to see another hole here, it's smaller, this is for Jeep and a stabilization device only. And what that does, is it takes the shake and play out of any of your hitch mount accessories.We're gonna have plate style safety chain rings. You can see the plates coming down from the sides to help maintain a nice clean look.

Gives you plenty of room for different size hooks.We're gonna have a 750 pound max tongue weight, which is the downward pressure on the inside of the receiver tube. And a 7,500 pound max trailer weight, which is the trailer plus the load included. I always recommend checking the owners manual of your Audi to make sure the vehicle can withstand that amount of weight. You want to pick the lowest number between the vehicle and the hitch.Now I'll just give you a measurements to help you when deciding on any hitch mount accessories you may need. From the center of the hitch pin hole to the outer most farther bumper about 2".

From the ground to the top inner most part of the receiver tube about 18-1/4". Now let me show you how to get this installed.To start our installation we're going to take a T25 torque spec, we're going to have five screws along the bottom of our fascia. In the inside of each fender well we're going to use our same T25 torque spec, you're going to have four torque head screws that run right along this inside. So we'll take our T25 we'll take out these four bolts. Now we're going to do the same thing on the other side of the vehicle.Next in the back of the vehicle we want to remove our floor covering.

You're going to have two nuts you're going to have to remove, you're going to use a 10 millimeter socket You're going to have one, you're going to see an oblong hole, or an oval shaped hole on the driver's side and passenger's side of the vehicle.You see that post right there, there's a 10 millimeter nut on it. Once you get it out so far it might be a good idea to have a magnet. Slide off like that. Now you're going to have two posts in each hole. Both nuts need to be removed.Now we're going to start removing our fascia. Where our fascia, the corner of our fascia meets our quarter panel we're going to start pulling out and working our way around. Keep in mind if you have sensors and lights or anything back here you don't want to just pull your fascia off. Make sure you're not going to damage any of the plugs. It's a good idea to hold onto the box that your hitch comes in, you're going to have a wire that runs from that side all the way across that may need to come off. If it does need to come off, you hold your box, you set it on the floor, you can take your fascia and just set it down while leaving your wire in place.So this particular model is not going to have the wire that runs across. We're just going to have one wire that's coming out of our passengers side and connects right here. We're just going to push down on the black fastener, or black tab and pull them apart like that. Then we'll have a second one where it's wide off, and we're going to do the same thing. Just like that we can slide our fascia off and set it aside.Next we're going to remove our bumper beam. We're going to have four bolts like this that we're going to need to remove on each side. Two on the top and two on the bottom. We'll use an 18 millimeter socket. I'm going to leave one partially in place like that on each side. Just to hold my bumper beam up there is it doesn't fall. We're going to hold onto this hardware because we're going to be reinstalling it. We're just going to set this down for now.We'll get our hitch in place. Go ahead and get one bolt started on each side. That'll hold our hitch in place while we install the remaining hardware. Now we'll go ahead and tighten all of our hardware back up.Next we'll torque all of our hardware to the specifications in the instructions.You can reinstall your fascia in reverse order from the way you took it off.Now, to put our nuts back onto the two studs that are on the inside here, an easy way to do it so you don't lose a nut. Take a paper towel, and this is if you don't have a magnetic socket. Take a paper towel and put it over like that. That'll hold your nut on.That'll do it for the look at, and installation, of the Draw Tite Class III Max Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver, part number 75950, on our 2008 Aude Q7.
