Cayenne Gets Hitched

So, I installed a Curt Hitch on my Cayenne a few days back. I got mine from Extreme Hitch because they are local to me.

Now, this topic has been covered a lot on rennlist and 6speed.

But, my one twist was mounting the plug directly into the rear valance. This allowed me to cut a much smaller hole than is usual in the valance. It also makes hooking the wires up much easier than reaching up under the dirty valance.

To install it this way I took the adapter(the piece with the flap and mounting flange) and placed it on the valance and traced around the circumference. I then dremeled a hole in the valance and slid it through and hooked up the trailer wiring harness to it.

It then used stainless self-tapping screws to affix the mount to the rugged plastic of the valance. After I took the pics I touched up the screw heads with matte black paint.

Done. Just another option. Looking forward to maybe getting the 944 SPEC on track in August.

Do you have the measurements for the extreme hitch, i want to get one on my Ford Ranger, the garage was going to charge $200 for the work so i think i will do it myself.

What size stainless self-tapping screws did you use aswell???
