Hi Folks,

I've just bought a towbar and need advice on wiring it.
What type of loom is required or can I splice straight into the existing wires?

Any help will be gratefully received.
Thanks

you can splice into the existing wires (aftermarket ones are done like that) but if you ask me i would try and find the oem wiring and use that, it means the lot will be running secure and won't cause a problem with normal rear lights...  that said look here buy the universal wiring and just follow the instructions that come with it... i would go for the 13 pin version that comes with it's own controlbox meaning it'll be a safer installation than just splicing into the existing wiring loom
