Corolla Touring Sport - Dealer fitted tow bar

Recommended Posts

I've just had a quote from my main dealer for a detachable tow bar to be fitted to my 2019 Corolla TS. This was for 13 pin electrics as apparently a 7 pin kit is not available. The total price was £1524.99, with the labour element being £750 + VAT (6 hours)! Surely that can't be right?

Has anybody had a detachable tow bar fitted by an independent and, if so, how much did it cost and what is the situation regarding the car's warranty? Thanks!

Towbars do seem expensive on modern cars.

I remember my dad wanted one on his Peugeot 407 estate and it was some extortionate amount.

He didn't bother in the end.

He used to fit them for a living as he owned a caravan and camping shop, in the 90s. I'll show him the price, he'll probably wish he was fitting them nowadays.

If a third party towbar is fitted, the warranty won't cover the installation, associated components/alterations, or the towbar. Presumably the towbar manufacturer/fitter will cover their work under some form of warranty.
