Tow Hook

How Do I Install Tow hooks?

This was a benen towhook installed on a 92-93 style front bumper, although im pretty sure its the same for the 90-91 and other tow hooks

TOOLS/PARTS NEEDED:

-floor jack
-drill with 1/2'' drill bit
-2- 4 1/2'' x 1/2'' bolts with nuts.
-2- 5/8'' bolts (used as spacers)
-sharpie marker
-a friend
-some blocks of wood if your car is as low as mine.

Your also going to have to make a slight bend in the a/c condenser- i doubt this will do anything to it, but i cant be sure concidering mine doesnt work anyway.

ESTIMATED TOTAL INSTALL TIME: 45min

(front tow hook install)
STEP 1: First you're going to unbolt the front bumper. (4bolts behind coner lights,2screws on each fender) At this point your also going to want to take note of where you want to mount the towhook- I chose the passenger side.

STEP 2: this is where it helps to have a friend help you. Pull the bumper out just enough that you can feed the towhook through and mark on the bumper support where you want to mount it. It's pretty important to be accurate because you only want to have to drill 2 holes- and you want to make sure that it doesnt hit the grill in the bumper

STEP3: Once you mark the location of the hook- fully remove the bumper and jack up the car enough to fit your drill under.
STEP4: Once you've drilled the two holes- your going need to use the 4- 5/8'' nuts as spacers because the spaces provided wont allow the bumper to be properly bolted back on.Slip the 2- 4 1/2'' bolts through the hook, and 4-5/8'' nuts and tighten down. Your also going to have to bend the a/c condenser at this time a tad, to fit the hook underneath because it wont fit otherwise.
(THIS IS THE PIC DONE WITH THE SUPPLIED HARDWARE, NOT THE CORRECT WAY, IM JUST POSTING THIS PIC SO YOU CAN GET AN IDEA OF WHAT IM TALKING ABOUT)

STEP 5: carefully feed bumper through the towhook and bolt back on.


(rear tow hook install)
as listed above- use stock towhook- put tow hook on oneside, put the provided clamp on the otherside, feed bolts through and tighten down.
