Does The Fascia Need To Be Trimmed To Install A Trailer Hitch On A 2022 Audi Q7?


Is trimming required to install the draw tite hitch for a 2022 audi q7??


Expert Reply:

Yes, the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Receiver # 76076 will require you to trim the fascia to properly install this hitch.

This hitch has a maximum towing capacity of 7,700-lbs, and a maximum tongue weight of 770-lbs, however it is recommended verifying with your owner's manual for your vehicles maximum towing capacity, and always use the lowest number between the hitch and the vehicle.

If you're needing a complete towing setup, you're also going to need wiring # 119190KIT, and a ball mount like # 2753. To verify which ball mount you need, you'll just need to measure the distance from the ground to the top of the trailer receiver, and then measure from the ground to the bottom of the trailer coupler.

Once you have these numbers, subtract them from each other and this will provide you for the respective rise/drop you will need to keep your trailer level.

For example, if your receiver measurement was 11" and your coupler measurement was 14", you'd need a ball mount with a rise of 3", or if you were to switch the measurements, you'd need a ball mount with a drop of 3".
