How To Route Tekonsha Wiring Harness 118467 To The Underside of the Car Instead Of The Hatch


want to use the wiring harness by Tekonsha on my 2020 Subaru Outback Wagon but I dont like the idea of it hanging out of the rear hatch door. What else can I do?


Expert Reply:

The Tekonsha T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness with 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector part # 118467 is designed to be stored inside the rear cargo area when not in use and extended through the bottom of the rear hatch door while in use. The harness is pretty weather resistant as long as there are not any exposed wires or frays and the weather stripping on your door will not allow it to be damaged.

However, if you still like the idea of running the harness through the underside of your vehicle, I recommend to find a rubber grommet hole in the rear cargo area and route the harness through there to the hitch. You may need to file the sides of the hole to make it fit. Then you can use a bracket like part # 118149 to keep the wiring harness mounted to the hitch. You may want to fill in the hole with silicone like part # LT37467 to keep exhaust fumes from getting into the vehicle.
