Re: Does your car have a towbar fitted?

The rubbish Scenic had one, given what happened to the towing eye thread thanks to recovery driver (already described elsewhere) maybe it should been recovered home using it....

Years ago my OH's Alfa 164TS had to be towed off a muddy campsite using the tow bar as the same thing had happened before he owned it...quite an experience, being towed backwards...

Re: Does your car have a towbar fitted?

The OH backed into a Mercedes Hearse, did supposedly 350 damage, actually just cracked the number plate, sure there was a scam going on there.

Damage to Scenic, lost plastic cover to ball hitch.

I reversed the van into Aldi's car park a while ago, the area is protected by steel central reservation barriers that you see on motorways & such like........reverse beep beep.. reverse beep.. reverse beeeeeppp....opps

yep, the tow ball was now hooked on to the barrier

How did you get it off, unbolt it or let the tires down?
