    Towbar fitting

    Morning guys
    Does anyone have a towbar like the one below? Iv got one that mounts this way but mine doesn't have the triangular side mounts with it and I'm not sure if this is normal or not. I'm also at a loss as to how to mount it correctly

    Could anyone post some pictures of theirs mounted to give me an idea of how it all goes together and any help on fitting? I also believe removal or the bumper is required?

    From the pic below the triangle bits look like they go on the top each side and attach to the bumper mounts (between the bumper bracket and the chassis rails, or to the body just behind the bumper mounts, you'll have to test fit to see)

    Mmm yes looks like your right, that would explain the need to remove the bumper too. I assume the bolt holes up into the chassis are threaded? Getting a spanner in there to hold a nut could vet very difficult else even if you can put it down inside the chassis from the rear?

    Would still be interested to see one mounted partly to see where exactly it goes but also how the exhaust hanger is involved

    Thanks for your help
