Trailer Hitch Installation – 2009 Chevrolet Traverse – Draw-Tite – etrailer.com


Today, on this 2009 Chevrolet Traverse, we
are going to install part number 75528 from Draw Tite. This is what the hitch looks like when installed
on the vehicle. Next, we will go ahead and give you some measurements
that will help you out in selecting some accessories such as a ball mount, a bicycle rack or a
cargo carrier. From top of receiver opening down to the ground
is going to be 18-1/2 inches and from the center of the hitch pinhole to the edge of
the bumper, is going to be 6 inches. Now, I will go ahead and show you how the
hitch is installed. The very first step is to go ahead and remove
the panel that is at the center of the bumper towards the bottom, that will give us room
for our hitch. First thing we need to do is go ahead and
lower the exhaust on the passenger side. We are going to remove 3 hangers, we are going
to spray them down with some lubricant and then we will also use a strap to support the
muffler while it is in a lowered position. Now, I will go ahead and show you the existing
attachment points on the vehicle. On each side of the frame rail are 2 weld
nuts and on the center of the bumper, there will be 2 weld nuts there as well. We will take a few minutes to clean them out
with some lubricant and then use a tube brush to clean out the threads.
