Used Mk1 Tow Bar - free of charge

#1 Post by TobyC » Sun Jun 13, 2021 3:01 pm

Hi All

A couple of months back I stripped out a lot of 'extra' wiring to simplify the car and remove lots of cut ends and superseded electrics. That included the wiring to my tow bar. I've now removed the physical tow bar.

Free of charge to anyone that can make use of it, the tow bar was fixed to the rear bumper mounts and extended under the boot and bolted to a plate on the inside of the boot floor. The majority of the tow bar sat 'inside' of the bumper so looked quite neat - I just didn't need it and now I have taken it off I'm expecting an improvement in MPG having realised how heavy it was!

This is free of charge to anyone who wants it. The wiring comes with it although I cut the wiring where it ran along the cill to get it out of the car so you'll need to patch it back up and it was terminated (cut and tapped up) in the engine bay before I got the car so the final 'connections' won't be there.

More photos available if anyone interested, including tow bar in-situ. I haven't taken the plate off the inside of the boot floor as I can't get to the captive nuts but I can provide dimensions for someone to make up a plate or have another go if someone wants this.

Tow bar is free of charge. Collection only given how heavy this is. Located in Gravesend, Kent (DA11 postcode). If you really wanted me to post it I can get it wrapped if you want to organise a courier collection. Or if 'meets' start up again I'll chuck it on the back seat and 'deliver' it to a pub sometime soon!
