Re: towbar

Not A Tipo but a Bravo. That was a simple job. It was not so easy to identify which wires to tap for the 7way bypass relay as they were all grey... A little patience and logic does the job. Bumper just pulls off after removing a few screws but on the Bravo at least the tangs that plug into the bumper to hold it on were super brittle so a second pair of hands to remove and replace the bumper is essential. All holes pre drilled. It did require the exhaust back box to be lowered to get access bolts on that side.

The worst job by far was digging out the underseal to get access to the mounting points. It was over 15mm thick in places!!

Allow a half day to do the bar and the same to do the wiring and you should have a bit of time left over without rushing.
