Re: Towbar Fitting Problems.....
Got one to fit on mine soon. I didn't recieve the angled brackets so I'll have to make some up.
The welded vertical bracket on towbar that is bolted to the body should also have the angled bracket attached. It also stands vertically.
That should leave the top hole on the angle bracket up against the bodywork but you may not see a hole for bolt.
If you poke around the area of the hole you should be able to pierce through the underseal.
The hole you reveal will take the captive nut and allow you to fit a bolt.
Photo pic- A4 paper is bodywork. Card is angled bracket.
My poxy picture is a view from above and shows which way round the the angle brackets fit.
The arrow points to front of car.
Info courtesy of the vague instructions I have.
If you look at your picture closely I think you can see the edge of the anlgled bracket running vertical.
