Re: Towbar Fitting Problems.....

Eliminate the possibilities.

If your 100% sure the x bar or whatever fitting is correct for your car:
Lightly bolt op one side and prod around with something like a pencil or wooden stick thru the bolt holes in the bar on the other side.

If there are no covered over holes on the other side.
1. the bar is the incorrect fitting size for your car. might have lined the x bar up incorrectly ,like back to front or in the wrong position
3.Perhaps the back was rear ended at some stage and repairs were done with a new plate welded in , with no holes in it?.
If youve had it from new youd know for sure about that.

Other than that, altho renault build quality may not be perfect,I doubt theyd have mounting holes on one side and not the other.

Currently in coup's garage:
RM III coupe 1.5dci FVT,Audi TT Mk1 ,a bike and too much rubbish.
