Fitting a towing bracket

• Driving with a trailer implies additional work for the vehicle. Therefore, before fitting a towing bracket, please contact an Authorised Service Centre to check whether your cooling system needs modification.

• Observe the legal requirements in your country (e.g. the fitting of a separate warning lamp).

• Certain vehicle components, e.g. the rear bumper must be removed and reinstalled. The towing bracket securing bolts must be tightened using a torque wrench, and an electrical socket must be used to connect to the vehicle's electrical system. This requires specialist knowledge and tools.

• The figures in the illustration show the dimensions and attachment points which must be observed if you are retrofitting a towing bracket.

WARNING

Towing brackets should be fitted by specialists.

• If the towing bracket is incorrectly installed, there is serious danger of an accident.

• For your own safety, please observe the instructions provided by the manufacturer of the towing bracket.


Caution

• If the electrical socket is incorrectly installed, this could cause damage to the vehicle's electrical system.


Note

For the sports model (FR, SPORT, CUPRA...), fitting of a trailer bracket is not recommended due to the design of the bumpers.
