tow bar compatibility

Postby dopey » Tue Jul 10, 2018 11:14 am

hey all, is the sportback tow bar the same as the sedan? I know the kits have different part numbers but is the actual tow bar the same?

There is a sportback with a tow bar with part number MR936608, which looks like it will bolt up to a sedan.

also according to these fitting instructions there is a loom that plugs in at the engine bay, but I can't find it on the wreck. It definitely has the factory tow bar and wiring kit with the ECU. does anyone know what the front loom does?

thank you!

It’s just a single wire that goes from the trailer wiring ECU to the battery. They should have run wire down the left side on the inside of the car.

Thank you lancerdarryl! I'll go back and have a look. I couldn't see any additional wiring it all seemed to plug into the harness with the exception of the red wire.

there was another thread that mentioned differences in the wiring for cars up to 2011 and from 2011 onwards. this is a 2011 loom going into a 2008. hopefully the wiring can be bought separate as I can get the ECU.
