Does Install of Curt Hitch C13420 Have Order that Bolts Need to be Torqued  


two questions. the instructions for the oem factory hitch for the telluride say to tighten the outside bolts first, then the bottom. why did you do the opposite in the install video? and two, is there any play between the hitch and the frame before tightening the bolts? thank you


Expert Reply:

Curt does not have the same bolt order torque instructions as the Hyundai OEM hitch for you vehicle has. Maybe it would be a good idea to use that order but Curt basically found that it didn't make a difference.

There is a chance that the Curt Hitch part # C13420 might have some play between it and the frame of your vehicle before the bolts are torqued. This can happen due to slightly variances in manufacturing but most of the time it's due to the hitch getting slightly bent in shipping.
