Recommended 4-Pole Wiring Harness Bracket for Tekonsha Harness 118551


Part number 118251 towing harness for ford escape 2012 In the video a mounting bracket is mentioned. I do have the mounting bracket in place from the original flat four connection, does this new harness fit into that bracket? If not, what part number is the replacement bracket? Thanks!


Expert Reply:

4-pole wiring plugs can differ in shape so the best option for installing harness # 118551 in your 2012 Ford Escape is to use the mating bracket # 18144 from sister company, TowReady.

An external bracket is handy but you may want to leave the 4-pole connector inside the vehicle for long periods of non-use, especially in winter since road salts can cause corrosion and deterioration.
You can also protect the exposed connector using dielectric grease # 11755.
