    Default Nissan Navara D23 - Tow bar

    Hi All.

    I collected my Navara in December and wasn't able to have a tow bar fitted due to stock shortages. I am ordering one now but would like to know some info on the Nissan Approved tow bar.

    Some questions:
    1. Is it removeable? (i dont really care for the removeable as they are picked out by crooks)
    2. Can on fit a drop-plate to this towbar?
    3. Nissan mentions illumination - what is this? is there a light that illuminates the tow bar for reversing purposes etc?

    Feedback will be appreciated.
    Regards
    Danny

    Yes it is removable and you can fit a drop plate. The illumination refers to LED lights around the plug. It illumi ates for a few seconds when the navara is locked or opened. Really handy when coupling a trailer.

    Yip. It comes with a pre-drilled hole to fit a lock.

    Thanks Ricoffy for the response and pics.

    Looks great.

    I also fitted the spare wheel lock, however, i did not obtain this from Nissan themselves but from Grip-Tech in Kyalami. They confirm that they also supply Nissan so am relatively certain that this is the correct (approved) part. That will hopefully also deter the skelms from taking the spare.
