Anyone fitted a tow bar with electrics?

Just wondering if it is fairly straightforward or a dealer job?

Cheers

Rick

Very straightforward, ( or the Dealer wouldn't be able to do it :) ), but I'm paying through the nose to have mine fitted.

If I fit it, any corrosion is obviously going to be due to me not fitting the towbar properly, and when any of the unnecessary electricery blows up, that would obviously be down to me fitting the electrics, so bearing in mind how much Suzuki spares are, it is worth having them mess with the electrics so they can suck up any failures under the guarantee. (And they can sort out any trim rattles caused by disturbing the side panels too...)

If it suddenly breaks, go back to the last thing that you did before it broke and start looking there :)

Just wondering if the electrics are plug and play with existing loom or have to be cut in with those blue clips?

No scotch loks required, very clear instructions and as you put it "plug & play".
I'm not keen on the towbar (the detachable ball part is fragile looking) and prefer the Italian one we've got on a Gen3. The wiring kit is a gem and an absolute must.
The Italian one is made by Umbra Rimorchi and a Gen4 version can be found on ebay.
