    Q5 OEM Hitch Install w/ wiring

    Does anyone in the Front Range have experience installing the OEM hitch and wiring in a Q5? Stealer wants $1700 and that aint gonna happen. ECS has the parts for $590, so there's savings to be had for DIY. eTrailer has a great video showing the hitch install for a very similar DrawTite and that looks very doable for me. What I can't find is how the Audi wiring goes together and where all the new modules mount, etc. Also some question about whether the dealer has to do some programming to finish the process.

    The mechanical install is straight forward. The dealer will need to program the modules to let the vehicle know it's now installed. Be sure to get the module bracket which mounts behind the trim on the passenger side of the luggage area.
