How to Install the Pollak Twist-In Trailer Connector on a 2008 Chevrolet Silverado Pickup

Today on this 2008 Chevrolet Silverado Pickup we are going to be installing the Pollak Twist-in 7-pole connector part number PK11916. We are at the rear bumper of the Chevrolet Pickup and we are going to locate our mounting location for our 7-pole plug. If you look just to the left of your license plate holder. You have got an existing knock out plug that is basically just a holder for the position that we are going to be putting our 7-pole into. To release this there is a little tab on the outboard side. Just take a flat bladed screw driver or something you can get in there to press that tab in a little bit. Twist the knock-out counter clockwise 45 degrees and pull the knock out away from the vehicle. In doing so you can see on the back side we have got a plug in. 00:46

This is the plug-in that we are going to be plugging our 7-pole harness into. On the top side we have got a release button. We just want to press that and pull the two pieces apart. Next we will take our new 7-pole connector and we will plug the two pieces together. Make sure you press it in until you hear it click. We will simply slide it back into position at about a 45 degree angle. Rotate it up into position until it snaps and you will see the release pin is locked into place. That is all there is to the installation. That will conclude the installation of part number PK11916 on a 2008 Chevrolet Silverado Pickup.
