Hi,

Straight to the point. I have a 2017 Disco Sport HSE with the 5+2 seating in the back. This puts the spare tire under the rear of the vehicle.

I Talked to my dealership who referred me to a 3rd party installation center in San Francisco called Rack Solid who said they had a hitch for that model and there were no specifications against the 5+2. Took it in and they just called saying that it doesn't work for the 5+2 because of that model and the company providing the part hadn't updated their site to reflect this.

My question is, has anyone else been able to install a hitch on a similar vehicle with the 5+2 seating with the spare tire underneath?

If so, do you have a brand/model number of the part?

Any and all help welcome.
Thanks in advance

Taylor

I found the oem part I think you need for this in the accessory brochure: VPLCT0161. I installed the oem hitch for my 2016 five-seat model myself. Look up all my posts here for a walkthrough with pics. Also download the instructions for your oem receiver to see if you can tackle it. Oh! You’ll need the tow electrics kit too listed in the accessories brochure. Let us know how it goes!
