Towbar

Post by Bob@Burton » Tue Sep 11, 2018 4:58 am

Hi all, has anyone had any experience of having a towbar fitted, specifically in connection with the electrics. In past experience, all my previous cars have been connected using a by-pass relay with the socket connected using scotchlock connectors to the existing taillight wiring.

I am being advised to use a model specific wiring kit and have the cars software reprogrammed to ensure all functionality remains. This is only being used to tow a trailer but the specific kit involves an additional cost of £200. £450 verses £650 which is quite a jump. The towbar fitter also warned me about any future warrantee issues from Seat if the specific kit was not used.

Any thoughts?

Lot of money to lose if it goes wrong in the future
Bite the Bullet have it done by seat approved to keep your warranty
Or look at if you need a trailer hire a van or roof box
