Hi all.

Just a quickie. Has anyone had a towbar fitted to their Tipo?

I have sourced a multitude of reasonably priced towbars but can't find a model specific wiring set yet, apart from Fiat's own. I only need single electrics. I have been advise by a towbar company not to have universal electrics fitted.

Thought/comments, folks?

Cheers, Panda

Re: Towbar

Try Hedley Towing. Prices and service are excellent. I did my bravo recentishly. Tow bar company are talking tosh as universal electrics will work fine. I have used these on a string of cars with Cn bus electrical systems Vectra, Focus, Mondeo, golf and Bravo without any issues at all . Plug in harness from Fiat will activate the dash mounted trailer repeater lamp. Bespoke wiring is very very expensive though.

The worst parts of the job were

1. Super brittle bumper mounting comb which really now needs replacing and really required two people to successfully remove the bumper.
2. Cleaning the underseal off the bumper mounting bolts. Its a sort of sprayed rubber and was half an inch thick and hard to remove to get at the bolts
