Bolt size needed to fit 04 Odyssey Frame for hitch?

What size bolt will screw into my frame to install a Reese trailer hitch on my Honda Odyssey? The ones I was provided from Reese appear to be too big to thread in.

There is a good chance that the bolts supplied are correct. The correct size is M12-1.25 X 35mm. On vehicles more than a couple years old the factory weld nuts can get rusty. It would be a good idea to purchasing some PB Blaster or Deep Creep penetrating lubricant and spraying it up in the wholes and then cleaning it with a wire brush. It is extremely important that you use a penetrating lubricant NOT WD40. It will not deteriorate the rust.

Will a Reese trailer hitch that fits a 1995 Buick Century fit a 2000 Buick Century?


Your best bet is to go to the reese hidden hitch web site, (google it)and look them both up. If it's the same number, it's the same hitch.

HOW TO INSTALL AHITCH ON A 2008 FORD ESCAPE


Buy one from Uhaul or another company or a used part from the salvage yard. You can get these cheap. They are premade to fit over existing holes in the frame. Should be 4 - 6 bolts.

Spare tire mount on 1986 Sieraa Classic


I had a similar problem with an 88 F250. Measure the tire height with tire standing, then measure space between hitch and measure frame from same place.
If the space between the frame would allow the tire to fit without the hitch, you need a wider hitch. If your current hitch has room for the tire you are all set.
Usually a heavier class hitch will have wider mounting points, but be aware that access to put in bolts may require you to weld the hitch to the truck.

I am having having trouble in WA finding if i can fit a Haymanreese hitch to my 2007 Elantra


I checked the Reese site, and there is one available #77167 Insta-Hitch 1 which is a class 1 rating, drawbar #3594. Keep in mind that your Elantra is limited to towing 750 lbs WITHOUT trailer brakes, and up to 1500 lbs WITH trailer brakes. The installation of the hitch claims to be 'no drilling' but the exhaust system must be lowered for installation (then returned to position), and some 'trimming' of the cars fascia must be done. Take into consideration the terrain you intend to drive through. If there will be a lot of hills, you will struggle to accelerate, and braking w/out trailer brakes on long hills will overheat and reduce your stopping ability. Remember to figure in weight of passengers, luggage, and anything you put in or on the trailer, car roof rack etc. Good luck, and safe travel to you. Curt

Towing with a Hybrid


I have the same vehicle. Go to Ford dealer and buy the trailer hitch which replaces the regular rear end. It took me about two hours to install and I have towed a heavy trailer several times now with no problem. Because this is a unitized body/frame vehicle, it would be unwise to try to weld a generic hitch on. The Ford hitch fits right on to existing bolt holes. You have to cut a small square notch in the center of the plastic rear bumper for the hitch to stick out.

Trailer kit installation


It should have. If not a reputable hitch like Reese or Hidden Hitch will come with nut plates. Hope this helps.
