Trimming Of Heat Shields Required When Installing Trailer Hitch On 2015 Honda Accord Hybrid


I purchased a hitch for my 2015 Honda Accord sedan Hybrid. There were no notes in the specs about the Hybrid, but when I went to install the hitch the passengers side frame was inaccessible due to shielding. My conclusion is that the Hybrid is not able to accept the sedan hitch. Can you please confirm this?

I checked out the installation instructions for the Curt Trailer Hitch, part # C11681 that fits your 2015 Accord.

Per the instructions, in step 2 the heat shields on both sides will need to be removed and trimmed to allow installation of the hitch. On page 6 of the instructions there is a trimming diagram that shows the measurements for the trimmed area on the shields. As the instructions state, one of the fasteners will not be used when re-installing the shields.
