How to Install a Trailer Hitch on a 2014 Honda Odyssey


Today, on our 2014 Honda Odyssey, we'll be installing the Draw-Tite 2-inch receiver tube hitch, part number 75270. This is what our hitch will look like once it's installed. Next, we'll go ahead and give you a couple of 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 6-1/2 inches. From the top of the receiver tube opening to the ground is 12-1/2 inches. This will assist you with selecting accessories, such as a ball mount, bike rack, or cargo carrier. Now, we'll go ahead with installation. Now, to begin our install, we'll first need to remove the underbody trim panel located on the driver's side.

To remove the trim panel, we'll need to remove multiple fasteners on the inside edge of the mud flap. Then, we'll move underneath, where there's a bolt on the inside edge near the rear tire and then 3 push pin fasteners along the outside edge. To remove the push pin fasteners, we'll simply take a flat-blade screwdriver and get underneath the center of the fastener and pop it out. Now, with all 3 fasteners out of the way, we'll go ahead and remove the underbody panel. With the panel out and removed, it will not be reinstalled. Next, we're going to move over to the passenger's side.

We'll need to lower the exhaust. To lower the exhaust, we'll remove the rubber isolator from the metal hanger. To assist in removing the isolator from the hanger, we'll use some spray lubricant. Then when using a pry bar, we can simply slide the rubber isolator off of the metal hanger. We'll go ahead and point out our attachment points. We'll have a total of 6 attachment points, 3 in each side.

These attachment points bead 00:01:43 weld nuts built into the frame by the manufacturer. Now, before we attempt to install the new hitch and hardware, we'll want to clean out each one of the weld nuts, because over time, they'll build up of rust, dust, dirt, and debris. To clean them out, we'll use a spray lubricant and 1/2-inch nylon tube brush, part number 814092. Now, we're ready to go ahead and install the hitch. We'll take the passenger's side and feed up over the exhaust and then bring the driver's side up to position. Now, we'll go ahead and put our block in place above the hitch, lining it up with the pre-drilled holes in the hitch and our weld nut.

Then, we'll take our bolt, go through the hitch, through the spacer block, and into the weld nut of the frame. Keep in mind that each process we do here on one side, we'll give a repeat identically on the opposite side. Once we have all the fasteners installed finger tight, we'll go ahead and run it down. Next, we'll torque to specifications as indicated in the instructions. Now, with our hitch secure in torque specifications, we can go ahead and reinstall our exhaust hanger. With that, we're ready to hit the road. That'll complete our install of the Draw-Tite hitch, part number 75270, on our 2014 Honda Odyssey. .
