Tow hooks on a CRD
 
Has anyone installed front tow hooks on a WK CRD. Got the bumper off and all the other bits stripped off. The hooks do not fit due to the intercooler infront of the radiator !!
Anyone else had this problem?

Mine came with tow hooks already installed. I figured it came like that from the factory.

Fitted the recovery hook to mine took about 1.5 hours - but saved me aboiut $200.00 labour from my dealer ( rip off merchant) Hads no real issues just follow the instruction. Mine 2013 GC limited

I believe the intercooler and tow hook share a bolt hole. I know that in order to remove the intercooler, the tow hooks have to come off first.

I Believe this is only a problem with right hand drive CRD's. I learned this when I was talking to Ken at S4xc about their shackle mounts.

Thanks for the replies looks like I will have to modify the brackets to fit the 2 hooks. Will probably copy the standard tow loop bracket and drill it to take the tow hooks.
Nothing is ever straight forward when you have RHD in theory everything should fit!! But it seldom does.
