How to Install a Trailer Hitch on a 2003 Honda Pilot


Today on this 2003 Honda Pilot we are going to be installing part number 75599 from Draw-Tite. This also applies to part number 87454 with Hidden Hitch. The first thing we are going to do is show you the mounting points for the hitch. There are going to be three locations on each side of the vehicle. The three locations on the passenger side are going to be here, here, and here. This will also apply to the driver side, but as you see we are going to have to remove the tow hook to access those holes. Next we are going to remove the bolts that are holding up our two hook on the driver side of the vehicle. 00:31

With those pointed out the next thing we are going to do is remove the tow hook from the driver side. Then we will show you how to clean out the weld nuts. With the tow hook removed from the driver side, the trailer hitch is essentially ready to be put up in position. Go ahead and take a look at the weld nuts that did not have any bolts in them that have likely been exposed to the elements and have some corrosion and road grime built up in them. what we want to do is clean the weld nuts out thoroughly. To do this we are going to take a spray lubricant, like a WD-40 and spray those down. then take a wire brush and run that in there a few times. The combination of the two should remove most of the road grime and corrosion that is built up in there. you want to do that for the weld nuts in the frame and the back of the bumper as well. 1:39

Now that we have ensured that all of the weld nuts are clean, we can put the hitch up in position. into the weld nuts in the frame on both the driver and passenger sides we are going to be using 12 millimeter bolts along with a conical tooth washer. However, for the weld nuts in the back of the bumper, we are going to be using 10 millimeter bolts. With the hitch up in position and all the bolts tightened down we are going to go back through and torque each one of the bolts down as specified in the instructions. With that, that will conclude the installation of Curt hitch, part number 13328 on this 2003 Honda Pilot.
