I was told that there needs to be some cuts made to the interior to get the push button installed and the dealer implied some body cuts as well? No idea if they were saying that to justify the price though.
Yep … one small cut on the left side of the inner trunk space for the button controlling the hitch release and the large hole at the bottom of the plastic cover to let the receiver end swing through in and out….. 30min. max when you know what you are doing And you have done it before.
Here is the work order for the OEM Hitch Install. The list price for the parts alone comes to $1,705.06; they didn't say how may hours of labor it required. I have redacted the pricing I paid as they gave me a considerable discount as a goodwill gesture because I have had a really bad experience ever since taking delivery so far.
