This may seem a little silly

Under my rear bumper right hand side as you look at it there is a bolt head coming through the plastic, opposite side to the exhaust cut out
What is this for

I think the towing eye in the spare wheel set screws on to it.

Its for a towing eye. In the plastic tray in the spare wheel is a metal loop on a stem. This screws onto the thread in the bumper for towing another vehicle. There is a similar thread at the front.

Can't imagine why they'd bother putting a towing eye on the front.

Re: Bolt under rear bumper

One at each side.
