How to Install a Trailer Hitch on a 2010 Honda Odyssey


Today, on this 2010 Honda Odyssey, we're going to install part #C12031 from CURT. This is what the hitch looks like on the Odyssey. We'll give you a few measurements to help you with selecting some accessories, such as a bicycle rack or a cargo carrier. The top of the receiver opening down to the ground will be about 14 inches, and the center of the center of the hitch-pin hole to the edge of the bumper will be about 3 inches. Now, I'll show you how to hitch and install. First, we need to check our attachment points underneath the vehicle. There's going to be two threaded holes toward the bumper on each side. We're going to spray some lubricant and use a tube brush to help clean up the threads. The tube brush is part #814092. Take a few moments to scrub down your threads. Then test it with one of the hitch-bolts to make sure the thread is in okay. Once we can thread it in, we can move on to the next one. There will be 4 threaded holes that we have to clean out. Now, we can show you how the hardware works with the hitch. With the hitch off the vehicle, we'll show you how the bolts will work with the fasteners.

We'll have our bolt and our inaudible 00:01:03 washer which will thread from the bottom and through the hitch and through the inaudible 00:01:06 to the frame. You'll notice that the inaudible 00:01:08 always has teeth, and they always point toward the hitch. This fastener combination will be used in all 4 of the threaded holes. The driver's side uses one additional hole . This fastener will use a carriage bolt and a block which we fish-wired from the outside to the inside, then a phalange nut on the bottom. Now, we can install our hitch.Speaker 2: To install our hitch, we'll take one end and lay it on top of the exhaust. Then, we'll install one of the bolts on the driver's side to help hold it up. Now we'll install the second bolt on the driver's side. Then, we'll repeat the same process on the passenger side. Once the hitch is loosely held in place, we'll go back to the driver's side and install the last fastener. We'll take the fish-wire tool, which comes with the kit, and we'll run it through the hole we're going to use. This will match up the hole in the frame. Then, we'll run it out our access hole, which is a little far forward of it. We'll thread on our block, push into the frame, then thread on our bolt. We can push that into the frame as well. We'll pull it through the frame, and then back out the hole. We'll remove the bolt leader, and then we'll install the phalange nut. At this point, all our hardware is loosely installed, so we can tighten them down, then torque the bolts down as specified in the instructions.

We're now finished with our install of part #C12031 from CURT on our 2010 Honda Odyssey.
