Trailer Wiring Harness Installation - 2000 Volkswagen Jetta

Today we are going to be installing wiring harness part number 119175 on a 2000 Volkswagen Jetta. OK, we are in the trunk now, and we are going to go ahead and locate the wires that we are going to be tapping into for the wiring harness. I went ahead and removed the bottom carpeting pieces to give me a little bit more room to work. Over here on the drivers side, you can see if I remove this little lid for this compartment here and pull back this piece here, that will give us access to the wires here on the drivers side. We can access 4 of the 5 wires right over here. We are going to need to run a lead over to the passengers side tail light assembly to make our connection there. We need to go ahead and figure out which wire goes with which function we are looking for. It appears to be the green wire with the yellow stripe is the left-turn signal. Next, I am going to test for the running-light function, and that wire appears to be the green one with the white stripe. Next, we are going to go ahead and test for the brakes. OK, and that appears to be just the solid green wire.



Trailer Hitch Installation - 2000 Volkswagen Jetta

Today we are going to be installing hitch part number 11070 from Curt on a 2000 Volkswagen Jetta. We are underneath the vehicle now and we are going to go ahead and point out the mounting locations for the trailer hitch. Here on the passengers side, you can see we have got a tow loop. And we have got one hole here, and on some models you will have the second hole here as well. We are going to use these as two attaching points for the hitch on the passengers side. And then, over here on the drivers side, we are going to be drilling four holes into the side of the spare tire well. So the first thing you want to do is to remove any components that you may have in the spare tire well. And then we will come back down here, and we will put the hitch up over the passengers side and then drill our holes. Over here on the drivers side, before we get going I am going to go ahead and lower the exhaust down to gain more room to drill my holes in the side of the trunk well. You can see we have got one large hanger here. We just need to take this stud off of the rubber portion. To do this, I am going to use a little spray lubricant, like a WD-40. And I am also going to lower the one here at the forward side by doing the same thing.
