The first thing we need to do is lower our exhaust. There are three rubber hangers that we need to remove, two at the bumper and one going towards the front of the vehicle.

Trailer Hitch Installation - 2010 Chevrolet Cobalt

Today on this 2010 Chevrolet Cobalt we are going to install part number V58020 from Valley. The first thing we need to do is give ourselves some working room so we are going to lower the exhaust. We are going to do that by spraying down the rubber hangers with some lubricant and then we will pry them off. There are two in the back and there is one going towards the front. We have got the exhaust out of the way so lets find the points on the frame that we have to drill out. There is an oval hole here on the bracket and a round hole. On the round hole is the one we want to mark and drill. We are going to start off with our 1/ 4 inch bit and work our way up and drill it out to 1/ 2 inch bolt size. Then we will go over to the driver side and repeat the same process. These are the parts we are going to use to install to the inside of the frame of the vehicle. We have got this block plate here with a square hole and our carriage bolt and we have got our bolt leader that comes with the kit. 01:12

Chevrolet Cobalt Trailer Hitch Questions and Answers

  • Installation Video for Trailer Hitch that Fits a 2010 Chevy Cobalt Sedan Non-SS
  • I have an install video for a similar hitch that fits your 2010 Chevy Cobalt, but not for the Curt Hitch part # C11430 that you mentioned. Instead check out the Draw Tite Hitch part # 24745 which is also a fit. I attached an install video for you to check out.

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch for 2010 Chevrolet Cobalt Sedan
  • The trailer hitch that I recommend for your 2010 Chevrolet Cobalt sedan is the Draw-Tite hitch # 24745. This custom-fit trailer hitch lets you tow a light trailer or carry a bike rack or cargo carrier with your Chevrolet Cobalt. For a ball mount you want # 3594 along with the pin and clip # PC2. For a 1-7/8 inch diameter ball use # 19256. For a 2 inch use # 19258. For trailer wiring, use # 118398. I have included links to the instructions for the wiring as well. For install details...

  • Confirmed Hitch Fits for 2010 Chevrolet Cobalt Standard Sedan
  • The three 1-1/4-inch Class I hitches offered for your 2010 Chevrolet Cobalt sedan (the non-SS version) are shown on the linked page. Hitch # 24756 does not fit your vehicle. This fits only 2010 SS Coupe and SS Sedan models. The Draw-Tite hitch that fits your car is part # 24745. The two Draw-Tite hitches use different mounting points on the two vehicles and so they are not interchangeable.

  • Compatibility of 2-Inch Cargo Carrier with 1-1/4-Inch Class I Trailer Hitch on 2010 Chevy Cobalt
  • Thank you for your hitch purchase from etrailer. Your 2010 Chevrolet Cobalt is equipped with 1-1/4-inch light-duty Class I hitch # 24745 and this has a 200-lb tongue weight (TW) capacity. You do not want to use an adapter for a 2-inch cargo carrier because that adapter will cut your hitch's capacity by 50-percent, which is 100-lbs. This means that if you used an adapter like # HTAD your combined cargo weight plus the weight of your cargo carrier itself could not exceed 100-lbs total....

The rear air dam needs to be removed but nothing is trimmed. This hitch comes with a ball mount, pin and clip. If you plan on doing some towing you will need a ball and trailer wiring. For a ball, use # 19256 (1-7/8 inch diameter) or # 19258 (2 inch diameter). For trailer wiring, use # 118398. I have included a link...

  • Availability of Trailer Hitch Installation Video for a 2008 Chevy Cobalt Coupe
  • I have good news for you, but we have not had a chance to do a specific video of the 2008 model coupe. We are at the mercy of our customers who come in for installs to determine what year, makes, and models we are able to shoot videos for. In my research, I found that the 2008 and 2009 Chevrolet Cobalt Coupes have identical frames because they are the same model generation, so the video of the Draw-Tite hitch # 24745 being installed on the 2009 coupe will be identical to the installation...

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for 2008 Chevy Cobalt Sedan
  • First place to check is the how many doors do you have? 2 doors equals coupe and 4 equals sedan. Do you see any badges at the rear of the vehicle on the trunk that say SS or Sport? If you can get back to me with that info I can see what you'd need.

  • Choosing the Correct Trailer Hitch and Accessories for a 2008 Chevy Cobalt LT1
  • For the 2008 model year, the Draw-Tite trailer hitch # 24756 fits the Sport, Sport Sedan, and SS Coupe models of the Chevy Cobalt. If you have a regular sedan or coupe model you would need # 24745.

  • Distance Between Drilled Holes for Installing Hitch on a 2008 Chevy Cobalt
  • When you install the Draw Tite Hitch part # 24745 on your 2008 Chevy Cobalt you will need to drill holes for the front two mounting holes. I went out into our warehouse and the two front holes are 31-12 inches apart on center. The holes will get drilled into your impact bar at the rear of your vehicle. You would want to line the hitch up and use it as a template when drilling the holes. I would NOT recommend you attempt to drill the holes prior to having the hitch.

  • Hitch Recommendation for a 2006 Chevy Cobalt
  • Based on the size of the food cart you have the only option I can recommend for you would be to install a hitch on your 2006 Chevy Cobalt like # 24745 or part # 24756 if you have an SS model and tow a small trailer. The dimensions of the food cart are too big to fit on a cargo carrier. The hitch I recommended comes with pin and clip. You will still need a ball mount. For a ball you can use # 19256 (1-7/8 inch diameter) or # 19258 (2 inch diameter). You will need to check the coupler...
