Today we are going to be installing part number 75163 by Draw-Tite on a 2003 Mitsubishi Endeavor. We are underneath the vehicle now, and we are looking at the drivers side frame rail over here. The mounting location for the hitch on the drivers side is going to be the two weld nuts here at the base of the frame and then the two weld nuts here on the side of the frame, as well. On models that have seen at least one winter, a lot of times there is some corrosion built up in these weld nuts. So it is a good idea to go ahead and lubricate those first with a spray lubricant like WD-40 to kind of loosen up the rust and make it a little easier to get the bolts in there. So I am going to go ahead and do that on both sides of the vehicle.
And then we want to take the bolt, lock washer and regular washer and slide it through the bottom of the bracket into the weld nut on the exhaust. We want to go ahead and tighten those down. You do want to add a second nut, as well, onto that top bolt to act as a jam nut so that the nut does not release. Now that we have got our front hanger connected we want to make sure we connect our rear hanger as well, which I already have done here. And with the exhaust back up into place, the installation is complete. and this will conclude our installation of part number 75163 on a 2003 Mitsubishi Endeavor.
