View Full Version : Towbar Help

29th October 2009, 08:10 AM
Apologies for double-posting but I wasnt sure where this should reside.

I have just been a cheapskate and purchased a towbar removed from a MY00 Forester with the intention of fitting it to my 03.

I had read 98-08 towbars would fit but the vapour cannister & bracket seems to get in the way on my car.

Does anyone know anyway around this or do I have to cut the towbar's R/H bracing to fit around. Obviously I'm not keen to do this.

Do you know the brand of towbar you have bought?

If it is a hayman reece, I suggest you get all the details from the plate on the towbar and contact hayman reece on their website www.haymanreece.com.au
They might even supply you with fitting instructions and advice if you ask them.

Easier to just move the cannister- fabricate something up. I had to do a similar thing on the rally car- mount the cannister back there because we ran a late model fuel tank in an early model car. I'm more surprised it will clear the rear bumper, etc.
