Does Installation Of The Draw-Tite Receiver # 76226 Require Rear Fascia Removal 2020 BMW X3?  


Hi! We have a 2020 BMW x3 and wonder if the rear bumper has to be removed to install the Draw Tite 76226? Our BMW dealer is recommending the Stealth, with a six-hour installation, where reviewers say the Draw Tite requires only two. The Stealth looks the same but is $300 more. Do both options require rear bumper removal? Many thanks


Helpful Expert Reply:

Yes, the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver # 76226 will require removal of the rear fascia just like the Stealth Hitches Hidden Trailer Hitch Receiver # SH46FR. You might check and see if the estimate they are giving you is for the Stealth Hitches Hidden Trailer Hitch Receiver w/ Towing Kit # SH62VR. This kit includes the wiring as well and they may have been including that labor time as well. Either way 6 hours of labor does seem excessive, especially for a BMW dealer who should be more experienced at removing parts than other shops.
