I cannot find a detachable towbar to fit my 2016 S Max.
Ford do not supply one.
My 2016 S Max car has not got self-levelling suspension.
It has a spare wheel.
It does not have Sport Pack body trim.
It has a foot operated tailgate - keyless entry.
The foot operated tailgate appears to be what is stopping towbar manufacturers supplying a towbar.
When a towbar is fitted, I do not require a foot operated tailgate
( I recently was taking a box out of the boot when the tailgate started closing as the detector had seen my foot move away from the boot area).
Witter technical state that they can supply a towbar to fit, but that the foot detector for the tailgate has to be moved.
They also state that they have produced towbars for the S Max & Kuga, which have foot operated tailgates, for the past few years, without issues.
What options are there for the foot detector after fitting a towbar?
The options I would prefer for the foot detector, after a witter towbar was fitted are, in order of preference:-
- cover the detector so that it never operates (less risk of being hit on the head when removing boxes from the boot)
- disable the foot detector electrically, when the electrics are re-programmed after the towbar is fitted.
- re-position the foot detector as suggested by witter.
Anyone got any thoughts about fitting a detachable towbar to an S Max with the above spec?
