The best solution is to use a Vehicle Specific Wiring Kit, as these cars have complex electronics that do not like being overloaded, Also the car has towing specific safety systems (such at Trailer Stability Program) which only work if it knows it is towing. The car will need to be coded to recognise the towbar wiring and work the saftey systems properly after the kit has been installed. It's not cheap however, Expect to pay around £200-£250 for the whole job.

I assume that the towbar didn't come with a proper wiring kit as, unfortunately there is not a specific connector for the towbar wiring on the x-type, the proper Vehicle Specific Kit plugs into the rear light. There is a power connector with three pins on the left and a grey reverse sensor cut out connector also on the left. but you will either need to use a Vehicle Specific Wiring kit (about £175) or use a bypass relay system.

Testimonial: "THANKS FOR THE INFO, VERY HELPFUL CHEERS."
Its easy, The only tool you need is a plastic lever tool. Or can be done with big head screw driver (but car for the trims for it can get damaged)
Lever both side vents out, then pull on the trim gently outwards. (long piece from glove box to the end of the radio before the instrumental dash panel) Then pull the main inturmental dash out towards you as well. There may by plugs connected to the front panel. Disconnect that and it exposes the digital meter, I think it then takes only 2 x 10m bolts and the dash is out.
