Volkswagen Touran Owners Manual: Fitting the rear towing eye

Fig. 228 Rear bumper, right-hand side: screwing in the towing eye

First read and observe the introductory information and safety warnings

The towing eye is screwed into a threaded hole on the right of the rear bumper  . In vehicles with a factory-fitted towing bracket there is no mounting for the removable towing eye behind the cover. To tow start, fit and use the ball coupling   ,  .

Observe the notes on tow-starting   .

Fitting the towing eye at the rear (vehicles without factory-fitted towing bracket )

  • Take the towing eye and screwdriver out of the tool set in the luggage compartment   .
  • Insert the flat blade of the screwdriver into the slot between the cover and the bumper or into the side slot.
  • Carefully lever the cover out to the rear. You may need to use some force to do this. Leave the cover hanging down.
  • Turn the towing eye anti-clockwise into the threaded hole and tighten as far as possible  . Use a suitable object to screw the towing eye fully and securely into the mounting.
  • When you have finished towing, turn the towing eye clockwise to remove it and fit the cover.

NOTICE

  • The towing eye must always be screwed firmly into the mounting. The towing eye could otherwise be ripped out of the mounting when the vehicle is towing/being towed.
  • Vehicles with a factory-fitted towing bracket must use only tow-bars that are specially designed for fitting to a ball coupling. If you use an unsuitable tow-bar the ball coupling and the vehicle could be damaged. Use a tow-rope instead.
