Directions to install witter towbar on ford focus

I have bought a second hand towbar for a ford focus mark 1 estate (2001). I believe from looking at ebay it is made by Witter. As I have no installation instructions can somebody provide guidance. Please note I am not very mechanical but would like to fit myself to save a few pennies!!

Towbars are fairly simple, if the towbar fits the frame, you are all set, if it doesn't, you have the wrong one. If there are holes that line up, use them, if not, you can drill through the frame very easily, it is soft steel, Put some bolts in there that go through about 1/2 longer than the frame parts. Support the towbar with a jack, make sure it stays put. Drill a small pilot hole first with about 1/4 inch bit, then go to the hole size of the towbar, 1/2 inch. Those step bits work great, put in the bolts, tighten them up, all set. As far as positioning this thing, I would make the ball stick out just past the bumper, if no hole line up. You don't want to be smashing the trailer into the bumper all the time, so make sure it is enough, but not so much that you trip over it. Hope this helps.

Fitting instructions hayman reece towbar for 2012 ford territory awd


unfortunately with the regulations as they are you will have to have the tow bar fitted at an accredited towbar shop as you will need a modification plate fixed to the vehicle fire wall by the registered installer. If you have a machinery inspection and there is no mod plate then you will be put off the road

2001 Ford Focus radio code


Sometimes, the radio code is label, in back side of the radio; you need take off the radio for check it. Other times this code is in the last page from owners manual.

If you can't find it, maybe need call to the Ford dealer with your VIN number and they send to you (sometimes need pay for this service).

Hope helped.

All wires that you need are behind the carpet in the boot on the left hand side, there is a blue connector there, best to use a test lamp to locate which wire does what.

I want to fit towbar electrics to my Ford c Max


You can wire directly to the rear light wiring behind the trim carpets on both side, however you must use a bypass relay system on the indicator circuits as the flasher unit overloads and switches off if more that 1 extra lamps are connected.
