How to Install a Trailer Hitch on a 2006 Acura TL


Today on our 2006 Acura TL well be installing the Draw Tite hitch, part number 24755. This is what our hitch will look like once its installed. Next well go ahead and take a couple measurements to assist you with selecting accessories for your new hitch. From the center of the hitch pin hole to the outer most edge of the bumper is six and a half inches. From the top of the receiver tube to the ground is nine and three quarter inches. This will assist you with selecting accessories such as a bike rack or cargo carrier.Now let go ahead with installation.

Note before we begin the installation weve already gone ahead and removed the spare tire and contents from the spare tire well. Now to begin the installation well first need to remove the underbody trip panel. There are multiple fasteners that will need to be removed. The underbody trim panel and a majority of the fasteners will not be reinstalled. However, where the bumper fascia meets a bumper fascia bracket you will need to reinstall those pushpin fasteners.

Well have a total of three attachment points for this hitch, one at the manufacturers tow hook and two that well be drilling through the spare tire well trunk pan. The hardware to attach the hitch to the tow hook will be the half inch bolt, three metal spacers, split lock washer and half inch nut. Hardware for the drill holes going through the trunk pan will be our half inch carriage bolt and block, securing with a split lock washer and half inch nut.Now lets go ahead and put our hitch in place. Well take our bolt, go through the hitch and through two of the spacer blocks. Then well go through the tow hook, adding the third spacer block and securing it with the split lock washer and nut.

Making sure our blocks are lined up as per the instructions, well not go ahead and tighten up our fastener to hold the hitch in position so that we can use the hitch as a template to drill out the two holes in the trunk pan. Before we install the carriage bolt and block, its highly recommended to use sealant to seal up the holes to prevent exhaust and water from intruding into the vehicle.Now with our sealant in place well go ahead and install the carriage bolt and block. Now well get back underneath the vehicle well install the split lock washer and nut for both fasteners and tighten them down. Next well go ahead and torque our fasteners to specifications as indicated in the instructions.Now with our hitch secured and torqued to specifications that will complete the install of the Draw Tite hitch, part number 24752 on our 2006 Acura TL.
