It might become necessary to loosen the rear bumper or even the exhaust system. Just remember whatever bolts are loosened will need to be tightened once the hitch is in place. The hitch might come with some wires. These will need to be installed properly. But this is also not a problem as the manual will show exact details on how the wires need to go.
