Hi all,

Quick question - do/should the UK/euro spec cars have the 7-pin tow electrics fit as standard above the rear bumper or is this an option? I'm looking to add a detachable towbar to carry bikes & will need an electrical board, I've seen a couple of YouTube videos showing the location of the tow electrics 7-pin plug but can't seem to find it myself.

If it is an option, any idea how much a dealer will charge to fit the electrics ?

thanks

Dave

The harness/plug is up behind the rear bumper tied up out of the way.
harness adaptors are available on ebay etc but very expensive.
I left the plug sealed and soldered all the wires from the tow socket kit onto the corresponding wires in the harness. Then sealed using self amalgamating tape, works fine and no bad joints that happen when using skotchlocs !!!

I am also considering fitting a detachable towbar to my 2012 GC Overland Summit. How difficult a job is it? I am confident regarding the mechanical aspects but I am more hesitant about the electrics, so any advise would be appreciated.
