Hi

Im new to the world of Dusters & so far so good. Can anyone tell me if you have to remove the rear bumper to fit a towbar.

Thanks for your reply I haven't purchased one yet there seems to be a great variation in price. I would prefer a swan neck type & if posable not to have to cut bumper.

I've fitted 4 now on my own vehicles. The last on on my Trafic was the simplest (but heaviest!) as I got the plug in wiring. I strongly recommend getting the plug in kit. Tightening the bolts to the pre drilled holes took longer than the electrics!

The Thule swan neck was around £100 delivered and does not need the bumper cut or removed. This was true of my facelift 4x4. Also fitted plug in 7 pin electrics but the loom needs to reversed to take account of RHD fog. Also reverse pins in the socket for the indicators. Very easy though.

I'm looking to get a bar fitted to my 65 plate Duster 2wd, but am a bit confused by all the posts claiming no bumper cut for the Thule/Brink bars on facelift vehicles.

All of the fitting centres I've spoken to today (Including Brink/ Thule Centres) say the bumper DOES need cutting, albeit only slightly.

So, what is the real answer? I really want to avoid a cut

I had a Thule swan neck tow bar fitted by Vospers Plymouth in 2013. No cut out was required on my 4x4.
