Installation of a hitch for a Mazda CX-5 (2013-2021) using an exhaust removal tool and flat-head screwdriver strap

1. Prep Underbody

To get started, remove the support for the plastic fascia. Next, lower the exhaust so that the hitch can be attached. Take off the rubber hangers that are located on both sides of the car. To keep the exhaust from collapsing entirely, you should secure it with a strap using the appropriate hardware.

2. Install the Necessary Hardware

Through the proper connection places, thread the carriage bolts and blocks on the fishing wire. On either side of the frame, there are two connection points that may be located on the vehicle.

3. Raise the hitch into the appropriate position

Bring hitch up into the correct position so that it may be attached to the frame. To avoid the bolts being pulled back into the frame, feed the fish wire via the hitch’s access holes.

4. Attach the hitch to the frame in a secure manner.

After you have brought the hitch up to its correct height and aligned it, remove the fish wire and fasten the conical tooth washers and nuts that were given to the bolts that were just placed.

5. Make sure the hitch is tight and apply torque

Utilize a torque wrench and a 19mm socket to ensure that all of your bolts are tightened and torqued to the specifications provided by the manufacturer.

6. Raise the exhaust that was lowered.

In the last step, elevate the exhaust that was lowered in step 1. Take off the supporting strap, and then put the rubber hangers back in place.

The installation of your trailer hitch on your Mazda CX-5 should be complete at this point.
