2017 build X290 L4, Hope T-Bar/Tow bar mounting

Hi all,

I removed my Hope T-Bar off my old 2012 L4 X250

When I came to offering up the bar to my new (Nov 16) 130 euro 6 L4 X290

The rear 2 of the 4 bolt holes are missing!

Having spoken to Hope, the sales girl knew straight away, that on L4's
Fiat missed these off at production on early 2017 spec builds, and have since rectified at production.

Spoken to Fiat customer care!!.... well that was an hour i won't get back
They won't answer technical questions as they're not trained!! Referred to dealer

Spoke to van world chesterfield who supplied van,

They all have holes, we fit loads of bars, and that's that!

Any one come across this issue and had it resolved?

The bolt holes should be on bottom of chassis (bolt goes up I guess into a captive nut)

So drilling a hole won't help
