How to Install a Trailer Hitch on a 2007 Honda Odyssey


Today on this 2007 Honda Odyssey we're going to be installing Curt Hitch part number C13068. Starting off over here on the drivers side of the vehicle, we're going to be using three attaching points. We're going to be using the two rear most weld nuts here at the end of the frame. And if you follow a little bit forward you see we've got three existing holes. We're going to be using the middle one as our third and final attaching point. And that's going to be the same on the passenger's side of the vehicle.

However, on the passenger's side you'll see that we do have the exhaust that is in the way so we are going to need to lower it down to give us a little bit more working room. To do that we're just going to take a spray lubricant and go ahead and spray down the stud of the exhaust and the rubber hanger as well and go ahead and separate the two. The next thing we want to go ahead and do is to thoroughly clean out the weld nuts on the vehicle on both the drivers and passengers sides. To do that were going to again take a spray lubricant, thoroughly spray down the weld nuts and then we're going to take a wire brush and go ahead and run that into each one of the weld nuts and we may need to do this several times. Any vehicle that has seen at least one winter is going to have some corrosion and rust built up into these weld nuts.

On the drivers side again, we want to go ahead and fish wire the carriage bolt and block assembly into the frame into the forward most attaching point for the hitch. We'll be using this access hole. To do that, we're going to be using the provided fish wire that comes with the installation kit. What we're going to do is take the threaded end here, go ahead and feed it from the bottom of the frame through our attaching hole and we're going to be going back out this larger hole. We'll go ahead and take the provided spacer block next, go ahead and slide it on to the fish wire.

Next, we'll take our 7/16ths carriage bolt, go ahead and thread it on through the bolt leader. Feed it inside the frame as well and pull it down into place. From there, we can go ahead and put our hitch up into position. What I'm going to do is actually rest the arm of the hitch on the passenger's side exhaust to help hold it up a little bit so that well start attaching over on the driver's side first. To attach the hitch to the carrier's bolt we're going to be using the 7/16ths flange nut and then we can go ahead and start putting the new 12 millimeter bolts into the weld nuts.

We"re going to add to those bolts however, the conical tooth washers. Ok, now that we've got all the bolts up into place and tightened down, were going to go back through now and torque each one of the bolts down. We want to verify with the directions the specific torque rating for each of the bolts. With the bolts torqued down, the only thing we have left to do is put our exhaust back up on its hanger and our installation is complete. And with that, that will conclude the installation of Curt Hitch part number C13068 on a 2007 Honda Odyssey.
