Fitting and removing the towing eye

Use the towing eye for towing. The towing eye is screwed into a threaded socket behind a cover on the right-hand side of the bumper, front or rear.


If the car is equipped with a towbar, there is no rear mounting for a towing eye.

Rear: Remove the cover – use a coin, key or similar to prise out the cover.

Fold out the cover completely and detach.

Screw in the towing eye until it reaches its end stop.

Screw the eye in firmly. For example, thread through the wheel bolt wrench and use it as a lever.


It is important that the towing eye is firmly screwed into place - right in until it stops.

Removing the towing eye

Unscrew and remove the towing eye after use and return it to its foam block.

Finish by refitting the cover onto the bumper.
