This is my first post, so firstly a big hello to everyone.
I have a focus 1.8 TDCi estate on a 54 plate. i recently purchased of ebay a Witter towbar model number F83A, which is what is listed for my car.
I have fitted the two side plate to the chassis, as per instructions however i have a problem when trying to mount the main frame. Not only is it about 1/2" too short to meet both side arms / plates but the bend in the middle does not line up underneath with the space wheel compartment and stops the beam being lifted into place as it hits on the space wheel compartment.
I have double checked the instructions and have made sure everything is in the right place and cannot see where i am going wrong. would appriciate any advice as I am starting to think that this is the wrong one for my car.
Is it possible that my chassis is not mk1 if so how can i tell?
