Question about 2000 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.
