How to Install a Trailer Hitch on a 2008 Honda Odyssey


Today on this 2008 Honda Odyssey were going to install part number 75270 from Draw Tite. This is what the hitch looks like when its installed on the van. Next well give you some measurements that will help you out in selecting 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 will be 12 inches. From the center of the hitch pin hole to the edge of the bumper will be about five and a quarter inches. Now Ill go ahead and show you how the hitch is installed.

First thing were going to do is go ahead and point out the attachment points. There will be three threaded holes on each side of the frame. Now on the passengers side theres an exhaust thats in the way as well. Well go ahead and spray down the rubber hanger with some lubricant and then well go ahead and pry off the hanger. That will give us a little more working room to install our hitch and install the fasteners.

Now, the threads in the existing holes are going to be rusted, so well go ahead and spray them down with some lubricant and well use a tube brush to help clean them out. Were using part number 814092. Now the older the vehicle is the more time this will take, and eventually you may have to use a thread tag to help clean out the threads. All right, at this point once all the threads are clean we can go ahead and install the hitch. Its a good idea to have an extra set of hands to help hold up the hitch while I install the hardware.

When we install the fasteners we want to make sure the teeth on the conical tooth washer are always pointing toward the hitch. As we install the hitch, well also make sure to install the spacers that go between the hitch and the frame. Once all our hardwares installed we can go ahead and tighten it down and then torque the bolts down as specified in the instructions. With that that will finish it for our install of part number 72570 from Draw Tite on our 2008 Honda Odyssey.
