Fitting a towbar - how to do it?
#1
Shocked 
Greetings!! Smile

Ok so today I came across a nice deal on a towbar on my Berlingo 2012mod.
My experience when it comes to cars and do some mechanic stuff is quite poor.
But, before I get the parts I wanted to check with you guys if anyone has done
this before on their own car. And if there is any tips or advice I could have before
I start. (including the wiring)

Here is a few pic's on the towbar itself and my car:

Thanks in advance, any suggestions and tips more than welcome Confusedtudy:

If you do a search on towbar.towbar wiring etc you will come up with a wealth of info already posted.
Many of us fit our own towbars -its an easy and rewarding little job.
First off though you need a towbar for your vehicle -the one you are looking at is for a MK2.
Wiring is easy too - include a bypass relay to protect your cars own sysem though.

Make a start and ask along the way

Thanks for the reply evdama. So the one I ordered is not fitted for my car, and the car I have is called MK3?
If so I need to cancle my order asap Tongue

What you are saying is that I can wire the stuff on my own, and not " have " to have a pro do it?

I did a search here on the forums but might not have seen what I was looking for. Will try again and see if I can
get better results. Thanks anyway Smile

Yes cancel -it will not fit.
You need a 2009 onward L1 model
Witter is a good make I have one on mine.
Bosal are good too
The wiring looks difficult but it is straightforward

If you look in your manual you will see citroen provide details for towbars/third party fitters/coach builders so as long as it is done to a reasonable standard and has not interfered with the rest of the car(thats where the bypass relay comes in) they will not have a problem.
