Hey all,

Fairly new to the boards and the E. The wife & I just purchased an 07 SC and I went to install a ClassI HiddenHitch today and it doesn't fit. Close, but the bumper cover supports interfere w/the hitch.

Anyhow, while I was under the E I noticed the wiring harness for a hitch tucked in the bumper cover, yet I see no signs of ever having a hitch installed.

Cool I guess, but I was wondering if this was a factory install or maybe someone pulled the hitch prior to selling the E to Carmax.

See if it is pluged in by the spear wheel.

Also see if their is any evidence of a prior trailer hitch on the fram below.

The harness does not come installed from the factory. I would look for signs around the sides of the frame rails and the bolt holes to see if it looks like there was one previously installed.

take a test light to the wiring to see if it works. ;-)

The SC has a different style bumper cover that slightly interfears w/ the hitch....you've got two choices:

1. buy a SC specific hitch
2. mount a regular hitch....trim the bumper slightly or just leave it "tweaked."


here is a SC hitch thread.
