If your vehicle is not listed on the chart, read below for additional application instructions:
With a wide range of vehicles that are used for towing, Towtector is unable to test every possible vehicle for exhaust routing that causes burning of the brushes. We recommend that any vehicle with an exhaust outlet exiting straight back towards the rear bumper use a heat shield. After installation of the heat shield, a short test drive should reveal any burned or deformed brush strands surrounding the heat shield. If they are burned or deformed we offer the following remedies:
- Relocate the heat shield if it is not centered or aligned with the exhaust outlet
- Move Towtector rearward from bumper for additional clearance. This may require a longer ball mount.
- Reposition or reroute tailpipe to exit side of vehicle away from Towtector.
