How to Install a Trailer Hitch on a 2003 Honda Odyssey


Today on this 2003 Honda Odyssey we are going to install part number 87479 from Hidden Hitch. This will also apply to part number 75270 from Draw-Tite. Alright, this is what the hitch looks like when it is installed on the vehicle. Next we will give you some measurements that will help you out in ing some accessories such as a ball mount, a bicycle rack or a cargo carrier. From the top of the receiver opening down to the ground on this particular vehicle is going to be 12 inches. And from the center of the hitch pin hole to the outside edge of the bumper is going to be 4-1/2 inches. Now we will go ahead and show you how it gets installed. 0:33

The first thing we need to do is inspect the fasteners where the hitch installs on the vehicle. There will be three weld nuts that are in the frame here, here and here. We are going to have to clean these out. What we are going to do is spray down the weld nuts with some spray lubricant. To help clean out the threads we are using a nylon tube brush. And this is part number 814092. We will clean it out as best we can. Then we will use one of the hitch bolts to help get it started. The older the vehicle is, the more time this is going to take. If it is really rusted out, you may have to use a tap to go ahead and clean out the threads. 1:14

Alright, now we can go ahead and put the hitch on the vehicle. You definitely want to have an extra set of hands to help hold it up and put it in position. Now between the hitch and the frame will get these blocks. We will leave it barely threaded in and we will go ahead and do the same process for the remaining bolts. OK, out driver side is done. We will go over to the passenger side and do it one more time. With all of the hardware loosely installed, we will go ahead and snug down the bolts and then torque them down as specified in the instructions. Alright, and there you have it for part number 87479 from Hidden Hitch.
