Intro: VT, VY, VZ Commodore Tow Bar
Installed a tow bar today. I couldn't find a guide on the net so thought I would take some photos and make one while I was at it.
Step 1: Remove Plastic From Boot Interia
There are four screws under these plastic covers
Step 2: Then These Two
two more clips
Step 3: Four More Clips
There are four clips on the top of the bar under the boot rubber seal. There are also two more clips underneath where the red dots are. These clips are a two part clip. Hold the base of the clip and pull the center out. Then you can remove the base from the hole.
Step 4: Two Screws
There are two screws on each side of the bar near the rear wheels. With these two screws out you can grab the bar and pull it gently out. There are 3 clips that will pop out. Seems a bit weird pulling on it but that's how it its.
Step 5: Rear Bar Off
Once the rear bar is off the metal support needs to come off. Four bolts are holding it on. I used my cross brace lol it was easy as!
Step 6: Next 2 Metal Mounts
After the previous bar comes off these two metal mounts need to come off. Held on by four nuts.
Step 7: Underneath
Underneath there are two nuts that need to come off to fit this mount on. I have all ready fitted it in this picture. The two empty holes in the mount must be furthest to the rear of the car. the tow bar bolts into these.
Step 8: Tow Bar On
With the tow bar on you need to put the two mounts back on before doing the nuts up.
Step 9: Support Bar Back On
Put the support bar back on. Then refit the back bar. Should be easy enough now to get it back on since we just pulled it off. Just do everything backwards.
Step 10: Tow Bar Plug Lead
The tow bar plug lead I got just plugged straight into the white plug shown in this pic.
Step 11: All Done :)
