Towbar
#1
I want to get a towbar for my van. I've seen kits on eBay considerably cheaper than from Citroen.. It's a 2012 L1 but I am unsure as to what kit I need.. I'm assuming all the holes are there ready from factory, for me to bolt it on?

My dealer said to me that u cant install it yourself because the computer needs to be altered for a tow bar.
So I did it myself and it works fine Smile

Dont let the stealer pick your pocket for a towing bar and install an aftermarket one Wink
Just stick to a good brand like bosal, mounting holes are already there and there is a instruction plan with the kit.

For wiring kit check out 'ECS electronics'

Thats flange towbar & universal wiring kit. I'd pay a bit more & get Bosal swan neck & certainly a specific wiring kit if you are diy'ing. Swan neck towbar looks much neater.

Hi guys, brand new to this forum so I'm not sure if this is the right place to post it, I've just fitted a towbar to my berlingo van 2011, I've done the wiring as per fitting instructions, not the small bit I'm lost on is the 12v supply to the relay, I've ran a cable from front to rear and now reading some of the posts i didnt have to as there is a heavy white wire already there, Ive put a test on it but it's not live. Any reason why?

Do you need to fit a fuse in the fusebox to enable the live to the rear ?
So where does this bit go then ?

There is a 20 amp fuse that needs to be fitted in the under the bonnet fuse box

i agree totally with you about a dealer fitted towbar. When i went to get my new van they wanted something like £300 to supply and fit one. So went to the local motor factors and got a swan neck bosal one and wiring kit for around £120, fitted it ourselves in less than two hours, power was already there at the back to splice the relay into. All's been working fine from when it was fitted ten months ago.

I've heard you have to buy the holes separately and they are not available from Citroen either !!!!
