Yesterday a visitor to Megatyre towbars asked me the following questions about towbars:
Will my bumper need cutting?
It has become more common for towbars to require a bumper cut. Most towbars have to fit to the vehicle manufactures specified towbar mounting points and with modern bumpers stretching underneath the vehicle many bumper cuts are required. However many are “non-visible” bumper cuts.
Is any drilling required?
This depends on the vehicle, some vehicles have all the holes pre-drilled, other vehicles require some drilling.
Is any welding required?
No. All towbars are fitted using bolts. It is illegal to weld a towbar on to a vehicle.
These questions and awnsers will be added to our towbar FAQs later this week.
