phoneman said:My ST Line has the factory fitted retractable towbar, really clever bit of kit so cant comment on retro fit bar
You would trust that the guys fitting the Towbar know what they are doing, with cut outs and not obscuring the foot waving sensor.Lank said:I will be getting a towbar fitted to my 67 plate ST line X in a couple of months. Does the bumper require trimming as it did on the mk1?
Also I have the boot foot sensor, does this still work after?
This subject was 2018Hi, are you referring to the Ford after market fixed swan neck here?
I had the fixed variant fitted by Ford due to price but they now can’t tell me if it’s alko compatible or notThis subject was 2018
Mine is a detachable and I think Kugas look awful with tow ball visible and I think most owners appear to get detachable.
When choosing be careful as not all makes are Approved for the STLine variant.
We are no longer in the EU. We took our ball home.Both genuine removable and retractable can be retrofitted, but they are pricey, especially the retractable one. You can always fit an aftermarket towbar, but make sure to ask about makes and models that fit your car, in a respectable store, carrying respectable manufacturers.
Mind you, this thread is from 2018, fixed towbars are now illegal EE-wide, so only removables and (powered or not) retractables from now on...
