Does the Curt Hitch item # 13358 w/ Rear Step Allow Spare Tire Access on a MB 2500 Sprinter Van?


Hello, On a 2016 MB Sprinter Van model 170 with oem rear bumper step and a Curt model 13358 hitch installed. Can the spare tire still be removed and installed under the van? Thank you


Expert Reply:

The Curt hitch item # 13358 is a confirmed fit for your 2016 Mercedes Benz Sprinter 2500 Model 170 with OEM bumper step. The spare tire can be reinstalled after installation and removed when needed without any issues related to the Curt hitch item # 13358. I have attached a picture that demonstrates the hitch receiver installed on a 2016 Sprinter Van with the spare tire in place.

If you are in need of a wiring harness, I recommend the Tekonsha T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness with 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector item # 118649. The T-One connector plugs directly into existing wiring behind the rear tail lights of your Sprinter van. The powered ModuLite reduces strain on wiring system.
