The Australian Palisade towing saga continues and the mystery deepens...

I had the Towbar kit installed today, however there are TWO download weights marked on the parts in the kit - 180KG & 100KG.

The Australian Palisade Towbar kit (S8A04APH00) includes the following bundled parts:
  • S8A04APH00TB - Towbar frame assembly with a max towball download of 180KG.
  • S8A62APH00 - Towbar Tongue & Ball with a max towball download of 100KG.
  • S8A35APH00 - Trailer wiring harness.
The door frame sticker also shows 100KG.
Refer to pics attached.

This raises a few new questions
  • Which components are actually reducing the limit to 100KG - Suspension or Tongue?
  • Would an higher-rated, aftermarket tongue (e.g Hayman Reese) allow a higher 180KG limit?
  • Will the mysterious Load Assist kit include a new tongue to increase the download rating?
I've asked my dealer the same questions... Let's see what Hyundai Australia say (or ignore - I'm not holding my breath).

Installation
Oh my god, what a mission! I feel sorry for the techs.
  • Full removal of the bumper, rear lights & muffler to install the tow bar frame.
  • Full removal of the 3rd row seats + left side cargo trim to get access to the wiring looms.
  • Cut the car's existing 7-wire (12 pin) trailer connector 馃くand crimp an all-new 6 pin wiring harness and connectors in it's place.
I've uploaded the Tow Bar Fitting instructions, linked here in 2 parts:
Hit me up with any questions.
