Towing eye location

The screw-in towing eye is located in the spare wheel well.

Insert your finger into the hole on the underside of the cover and prise off the cover. On vehicles with a body styling kit, insert your fingers into the hole in the bezel and pull off the complete bezel.

The towing eye must always be carried in the vehicle.

CAUTION:
The screw-in towing eye has a left-hand thread. Turn it anti-clockwise to install it. Use the wheelbrace to make sure that the towing eye is fully tightened.
