Towbar fitting?

Recommended Posts

Has anyone had any experience of having a towbar fitted? I'm thinking of having one fitted but there's such an array of choices and prices that I'm finding it a bit of a minefield. I don't want any surgery on the rear bumper, as some are suggesting, so any recommendations or suggestions gratefully received.

Thanks in advance!

If you do choose to have one fitted, BEWARE, the rear lights on the S-Type are negative switched so unless your fitter knows what he is doing, at best the trailer electrics will not work. At worst you have various parallel paths and your car lights will do all sorts of weird things.

Hi

As Raistlin says above, the rear lights are wires like positive earth

You need a special relay for the towbar electrics and can really confuse a lot of people, installers

cheers
