Trailer Hitch Install: CURT 13200 on a Toyota Highlander


Welcome to the installation video
of the CURT 13200 Class 3 trailer hitch on a 2017 Toyota Highlander. To begin, remove the driver side underbody
panel. To do this, take out the five fasteners located
here. Use a flathead screw driver
to dislodge the center of the plastic fasteners before removing the entire piece. The other fasteners can be removed
with a Philips screwdriver. Take out the remaining two fasteners
located near the spare tire. Reinstall the two fasteners here
to secure the fascia nearest to the tire. Remove the two rubber plugs and
three threaded plastic inserts from the driver side frame rail. Remove the two additional rubber plugs
from above the exhaust. To trim the lower fascia exhaust air deflector,
refer to the diagram in the included instruction sheet. Make a mark two inches
from the seam where the fascia piece connects to the bottom of the bumper on either
side. Connect these marks
to designate the area that will be trimmed. Use a rotary cutting tool to trim the marked
area. Next, remove the tow loop. To do this, take out the two bolts
securing it to the passenger side frame rail. To remove the metal fascia tab from the underbody,
remove the bolt and fascia screw. Raise the hitch into position over the exhaust,
and align the holes in the hitch with the weldnuts in the frame. Fasten the hitch to the frame
with the included hex bolts and conical toothed washers. Torque all hardware to the exact value
specified in the supplied instruction sheet. If desired, mark and trim the under body panel
to reinstall. To do this, refer to the diagram
in the included instruction sheet. This completes the installation of the CURT
13200 Class 3 trailer hitch on a 2017 Toyota Highlander. Check out all our CURT ball mount options,
