you shouldnt need to remove the rear valance to fit a towbar ,i would suggest you contact a authorised towbar fitting workshop as it is not permitted to fit a towbar yourself ,it has to be done by a company with the correct authorised dealership as the towbar has to be certified with a europeon certificate of homoglonation and a plaque .then vehicle has to be presented at the vehicle inspection station for conformity .Then the paperwork of the vehicle changed to show its fitted with a towing hitch and a fee paid for this service .also the electrics have to be connected by a auto electrician as every annual vehicle inspection the electrics are tested as well where a towbar is fitted .
Hello Ian. You must purchase the matching plug which you will plug into that connector in the boot. They are sold by brand and sometimes year. The best choice would be to go to a volvo dealership to get one. Joe
Sorry you are not allowed to fit your own towbar ,it has to be done by an authorised garage with the right tax code number,then the electrics have to be connected by an appropiate auto electrician who is a member of the right college of auto electricians because only he can sign the instalation certicicate.Then vehicle has to be presented at the goverment vehicle inspection station for a complete vehicle mechanical inspection ,where the make and type of towbar and the certificate of homoglonation number are put on teh vehicles paperwork .
The Jaguar doesn't have a towbar connector as such, there is a dedicated towbar wiring kit available, this plugs into the lamp connectors and has a towing module incorporated into the kit.It also has a small connector that plugs in to a spare connector in the loom for cutting off the parking sensors when you plug in your trailer. If you are in the UK then check on the NTTA website for a towvbar supplier that can either send one out or is local to you.
Firstly you need to know the make of the towbar, then you can download the fitting instructions from the towbar manufacturers website. As far as electrics are concerned, I would recommend NOT using the secondhand electrics that you have unless you have a dedicated plug-in wiring kit as the wires were probably cut and may now be too short to use and the sockets may not be in tiptop condition, It's well worth the small expense af replacing them. The actual wiring will depend on what year and model the car is.
