How to Install the Trailer Hitch on a 2016 Toyota Corolla

Speaker 1: There a 2016 Toyota Corolla, we're going to be taking a look at showing you how to install the Draw-Tite Sportframe trailer hitch receiver, part number 24913.This is what a hitch looks like when it's installed. You can see it's got a nice round tube design. Nice curve to it. Fits with the contour of the vehicle, and your tongue's not going to stick out past your bumper. You don't have to worry about hitting your shins on it.It's going to be a class one hitch, 1-1/4 inch by 1-1/4 inch. It's going to have a maximum towing weight of 200 pounds, which is the downward pressure on the inside of the receiver tube.

It's going to have a max trailer weight of 2000 pounds versus a trailer plus load included.Now, I do recommend checking your owner's manual to make sure your vehicle can withstand that amount of weight. You're going to want to pick the lowest number between the vehicle and the hitch.Now, if you do need a pen and clip, you can pick one up by using part number PC2.Now, we will give you a couple measurements to help you on deciding on any hitch mount accessory you may need such as a bike rack or cargo carrier. From the center of the hitch pinhole to the outer most part of the bumper, will about two inches. From the ground to the top innermost receiver tube will about 10-3/4 inches.So the first thing we need to do is we're going to need to take out this plastic appearance panel. Now, there's some plastic pop rivets here.

We're just going to take a screwdriver, lay it into the little slot and pull them out.Then you're going to have a couple more here. These, we're going to use a socket.If for some reason when you're turning these, and they're not coming off, just put a little bit of pressure on the inside of it and pull down on it and it will come off.What we're going to be doing is we're going to be mounting onto this hole and this hole. You're going to have the same ones on the opposite of the vehicle.First thing you want to do, is you want to take your bolt in your hardware kit because these are open holes we're going to go ahead and hand thread the bolt up in there. All we're trying to do is to make sure we don't have anything on the threads so that when we actually put our hitch in and bolt this in with the hitch on it, it doesn't screw up the threads on the bolt or the threads in your weld, not in your frame. So I'm just going to hand thread these up here.

Just kind of clean them out a little bit.If you do come across where you have stuff in there, take a tube brush, resume the rotation, spray some of the rotation in there. Just take your brush and brush out the thread inside.Now we'll go ahead and put our hitch into place. What you want to do is take your bolt, you conical tooth washer. Make sure your teeth are facing toward the hitch. We'll just hand tighten this in.

We'll do the same thing on the other side.Once we have all of our hardware in place, go ahead and tighten everything down. I'm going to be using a 3/4-inch socket. We're going to repeat that on the other side.Next thing we're going to do, we'll torque it down to the specifications in the instructions.That will do it for the Draw-Tite Sportframe trailer hitch receiver, part number 24913 on our 2016 Toyota Corolla.
