This swan neck hitch is an elegant way to add up to 1500kg towing capacity to your Volkswagen Passat B5.5 TDI. The hitch replaces the rear bumper reinforcement, providing a solid base for a locking swan-neck receiver. The receiver ball is 50mm, or about 1.97" and can support 75kg. The hitch includes instructions and installation hardware and requires no drilling. Gloves are also included for receiver removal and replacement, along with a storage bag.
Because this is a European market hitch it does not include rings for safety chains. You must attach safety chains to your car to meet DOT regulations for towing. Rings for safety chains can be welded onto your hitch by selecting the option for Safety Chain Rings below.
Wiring is not included.
This item will incur a $10 oversize shipping surcharge for orders under $500.
