How to Install a Trailer Hitch on a 2015 Toyota Sienna


Today on our 2015 Toyota Sienna, we will be taking a look at and installing the DrawTite Match Frame Custom Fit Class 3 Trailer Hitch Receiver, part number 75237. Here's what our hitch is going to look like once it's installed. It's going to have that nice sleek, round tube design across the bottom of our vehicle the full width, with a nice black powder coat finish that's going to be high gloss and also prevent any kind of rust and corrosion. With a fully welded design and plate steel chain tie-downs, it's going to add extra strength and durability. It's going to have a 2" x 2" receiver tube opening, offering a 675 pound ton weight capacity, and 4,500 pound towing capacity. With weight distribution, the ton weight stays the same, but the gross trailer weight is going to go up to 5,000 pounds. On the side here we're going to have a 5/8" pin hole for all your 2" receiver accessories, and just in front of it you'll see a 1/2" pin hole.

That'll be for your J-pin stabilization device. You're going to have your welded on bracket that's going to be for attaching your 4-pole or 7-pole trailer wiring. There'll be no need to get an extended bracket to mount up your trailer wiring. Now let's go ahead and get a few measurements to assist you in selecting new hitch accessories. From the top of the receiver tube to the ground is going to be about 10-3/8".

From the center of the pin hole to the outermost edge of the bumper is going to be about 5". These measurements should assist you in selecting new hitch accessories for your 2" receiver, such as ball mounts, bike racks, and cargo carriers. Now let's go ahead and see how it's installed. First thing we're going to want to do is remove the under body panel. There's going to be some 10mm bolts that we'll remove first. Now this panel will need to be trimmed and re-installed later.

Go ahead and remove the big Phillip's screws next, and these are going to be like big Phillip's nuts that secure to studs in the bottom panel. Next we'll have some push fasteners located along the front. Pop out the center and remove them. We want to get those Phillip's nuts one more time, and we'll pull down as we're un-threading them to disengage them. We'll set the panel off to the side.

Now we'll go ahead and take a little bit of spray lubricant to lower down our exhaust. Where we're going to spray that lubricant is going to be on the exhaust hangers. There's going to be one located here on the end of the tailpipe. That spray lubricant will help the lead slide off easier. Go ahead and use a pry bar just to peel them back. Once we have it slid back, we can go ahead and pull it down. Go ahead and repeat that on the other 2 up here. We just removed the one right on the right hand side of our muffler. Now on the inside of the frame we're going to see some covers. These are going to be some sticker covers that they have from the factory, and we're going to remove the back 2. This one here, this one here, and the very last one down here on the end. We'll leave this one in place. We'll take off these plastic plugs. We're just going to peel down and peel them out. These are going to be covering up our existing weld nuts in the frame, and if you don't have these, then make sure that you clean out your weld nuts before you get started using a wire brush, or a tube brush. That way you make sure you get a nice clean connection. Now we'll go ahead and repeat the same process on the passenger side with the same attachment points. Here's the bolts that we're going to use. We're going to take our lock washers over the top, and our flat washer, going through the receiver hitch and into the existing weld nuts in the frame. Let's go ahead and get an extra set of hands to help us raise our hitch into place. We'll go ahead and put one bolt in each side, just to help hold it up in place while I get the rest of the hardware in. Make sure you thread all the bolts into place by hand, so that way you don't cross thread the weld nuts in the frame. Now we'll go ahead and tighten down all of our hardware. We'll repeat that same process on the other side. Then we'll go ahead and torque down all of our bolts to manufacturer specifications, starting here on the passenger side, and then we'll repeat that same process on the driver side. Now we'll go ahead and raise our exhaust back up into position. Use a little spray lubricant to spray the end of the isolater to assist you in putting it back in. Now it may also be useful to get a flat blade screwdriver and help you slide it on. At this point it would be a good time to go ahead and re-attach that panel on the bottom side that we removed at the beginning. Now if you choose to, you can trim it to the instructions, or you can leave it down and return it back to the customer untrimmed. That will do it for our review and installation of the DrawTite Match Frame Custom Fit Class 3 Trailer Hitch Receiver, part number 75237 on our 2015 Toyota Sienna.
