Does Curt Trailer Hitch Install on 2020 Kia Telluride Require Removing the Spare Tire


For the 2020 Kia Telluride, the Curt hitch requires removing the spare tire? Correct? It goes back on though correct? Is there anything else to know about the install?


Expert Reply:

When installing the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C13420 on a 2020 Kia Telluride you do have to remove the spare tire; that is the first step but it does get put back into place at the end of the installation.

The install of this hitch is relatively straightforward with a number of different steps but nothing that requires any specific technical savvy. You will need to (temporarily) lower the exhaust and remove an underbody panel on the driver side, but apart from that you just raise the hitch into place, bolt it in and do some light fascia trimming on the underside of the vehicle (which won't be noticeable).

I have added links to the installation instructions as well as linked an installation video for you to check out of the Curt Trailer Hitch # C13420.
