Worked perfectly on our 2015 Honda Accord Hybrid Touring!
The first hitch that was sent out came in a HUGE box with only a little paper around it, so it was all scratched up down to the metal (I'm guessing it was a return to start with). So I called and Amazon is always great...sent out another one...and the 2nd one was PERFECT. Came in an actual CURT original box that was packed perfectly. All the stickers were perfectly straight. VERY PLEASED!
Anyway, the Hybrid Accords have extra "aerodynamic / plastic shielding" that needs to be removed and then trimmed in certain areas. Plus, if a person also has the Mud/Splash Guards (like I did)...it is easier to simply remove the driver's side rear Mud/Splash Guard completely, as there is another Push Pin for the shielding under that Mud/Splash Guard. I've also attached the photos with the exact dimensions that I cut into that "shield" and it came out PERFECT...could not be more pleased...works great with...
Read directions thoroughly and watched video on website to make sure I knew what I was doing. Whole installation would have taken me about 45 minutes, but finished job took me a couple of hours because of necessary removal of plastic underside skirt (material right under trunk, most of which sits on the underside of the driver's side of vehicle). Taking plastic cover involved 5-6 plastic rivets and 3-4 10 mm screws. Removal of plastic cover gave me access to driver side frame rail. Installing trailer was a piece of cake. Reinstalling the plastic skirt was the most time-consuming part of the job (about an hour). I eyeballed parts that I had to trim using a utility knife. First, I trimmed about 2x 4 inches around the existing precut slit around the tow hook of the car. To allow the driver's side arm of the hitch to protrude out of the cover, I cut out a rectangular piece of 1x5 inches. These two modifications to the underside skirt allowed the bulky u-bolt (along with the two flange...
Like others have said, it took longer to peel the ugly stickers off of it than it did to put it on. Installed myself (husband) in about an hour going at an easy pace. I backed my car on to a couple ramps, lowered the exhaust, removed the heat shield, fished the wire through the frame hole, put the bracket and screw through, bolted it on, and put everything back. I didn't have to widen the holes to get the bracket in. A C-clamp was provided to clamp to the car's tow hook. A couple basic tools. 2015 Honda Accord - The top of the receiver is 1 1/2" below the bottom of the bumper. Looking straight down towards the ground from the trunk, the hitch is not visible. I haven't used it yet, but gave it a high rating anyway.
