Re: mounting a trailer hitch on 4000CSq
In a message dated 12/21/99 7:24:36 PM Eastern Standard Time,
I just bought my Audi 4000CSq today, so this is my first post to this
list. Please forgive me (and advise me) if I break any list ettiquette.
I am an avid mountain biker, and would like to mount a ball
trailer-hitch to the back of my quattro. On this, I will be able to
place a bike rack on the car. I really don't expect to actually ever
haul anything like a boat with this hitch, but you never know. Has
anyone ever mounted a trailer hitch to their Audi? Any alternate
suggestions, comments, advise or warnings would greatly be appreciated.
I had one in my Coupe Gt, it was bolted thru the trunk floor to a bracket
that mounted transversely between the two frame rails, and also to the rear
bumber itself. If you are only towing a bike you can probably get away with
mounting it to the bumper only. Do not trust in that sheetmetal in the trunk
floor without a bracket, it is very thin and can rip easily...
