Rear Bumper Removal

Post by Neil71 » Tue May 15, 2018 8:03 am

Does anyone have any info on removing the rear bumper to allow fitting of a detachable towbar?
I have also bought the dedicated towbar wiring and I'm looking for info in fitting this also.
I have seen a YouTube video of the Tiguan bumper removal and electric installation and wondering if it's the same process.
Thanks in advance.

Related to this, does the Ateca have an uprated fan when ordered with a towbar from the factory?

Did you manage to get your towbar fitted and if so how easy was it to do the electrics? I am looking for similar information on how to wire up a light board for use with a cycle carrier..

Hi,
I haven't got round to it yet. I have all the parts ready to go. It will probably be the end of the month before I can get it done.

Where did you get the wiring kit and I presume you'll be fitting the dedicated kit to preserve the warranty rather than the universal kit.

Do you know if your model has the trailer prep cabling which appears to be tucked behind the boot trim?

It was more a rhetorical question to bring the post back....
