My vehicle does not have a tow hook as stated in the tool kit. It was probably lost by the previous owner.

The tow hook is available online from OEM, but it seemed unnecessarily expensive to me.


Can someone who knows the metric values share them with me? I will try to find it in the market.

Apart from that, I couldn't find where to attach the front tow bar. I don't think I see a solid point.


Where do we install the towbars?
 
oem code 7774731 right?

That looks like the right one but cant be 100% sure,
there is a small square in the front just to the right of
the number plate that you remove and one at the back
roughly the same place on the back lower valance, never
removed one to look but would think if just pops out.

I THINK it's normal M12 thread. Try a normal bolt first.

They are all left hand thread, no idea why.
Strangely, there does not seem to be a standard, as different manufacturers use different thread sizes, and pitch. My Fabia one will not fit either Fiat, and strangely, is different to the same age Ibiza, so care is needed to ensure it fits correctly.
 
I shouldn't take risks. I should buy the original. It's not worth the waste of time.
However, I could not find the towing point, especially at the front. I say this with shame. Where is this front tow point?

I'm not sure if I trust aftermarket metals. I'll try to find a solid iron. I think there are original Opar brand irons. Compared to new model linea vehicles, iron is easily found.

If a friend of mine with a new model vehicle comes across it, I will try the original bars of another model vehicle.
 
I got this equipment for free from a friend. It looks like quality iron.

They had previously sealed the lids with glue.
I'm thinking of sticking magnets to the bumper and hood. This way, the cover will be sturdy and can be removed whenever I want.
