How to Install a Trailer Hitch on a 2013 Toyota Corolla


Today on our 2013 Toyota Corolla well be installing the Curt Hitch, part number C11265. This is what our hitch will look like once its installed. Next well go ahead and give you a couple measurements to assist your selecting accessories for your new hitch such as a ball mount, bike rack or cargo carrier. From the center of the hitch pin hole to the outermost edge of the bumper is 4-3/4 inches. From the top of the receiver tube opening to the ground is 11 inches. Now to begin our install well first go ahead and point out the attachment points. Well have a total of four attachment points. These attachment points are weld nuts built into the frame by the manufacturer.

Now before we attempt to install the hitch and the new hardware supplied with the hitch well want to clean out each one of these attachment points. To clean them out we use a half inch nylon tool brush, part number 814092. Well spray down the weld nuts and then thoroughly clean it out with the tool brush. To verify that we have cleaned it out well go ahead and take one of the new 12mm bolts and thread it into the weld nut to make sure itll go nice and easily. Now that we have all the weld nuts cleaned out were ready to install the hitch. Well be securing the hitch with the new 12mm bolt and a half inch conical tooth washer. The teeth of the washer will face the hitch.

Well install each fastener finger tight until we have them all in place. Now with all of our fasteners in place we can go ahead and run them down. Next well torque to specifications as indicated in the instructions. Keep in mind that each process we do here on one side well repeat identically on the opposite side. Now with our hitch secured and torqued to specifications were ready to hit the road. That does it for the install of the Curt 1-1/4 Inch Receiver Tube Hitch, part number C11265 on our 2013 Toyota Corolla. .
