G'day. Need a favour please. Does anyone have a factory fitted towbar on their RX350 or RX330 (I think they are the same).

When the towbar is fitted, does Lexus remove the rear bumper bar reinforcement? I can't see any other way for the towbar to fit??

Could someone please hop under their car and take some pics please showing the towbar in place.

Cheers, David

I have fitted both genuine and aftermarket towbars to RX330 and 50's  and they all needed the rear bar reinforcement removed. Depending on exactly what towbar it is you may need to also make a small cutout in the bar for the tongue.

Thanks SBR. I like the Hayman Reese bar for my 2007 RX350. Is this something I can fit at home? Cheers David, Carlingford NSW. Or can you recommend anyone?

It can be done at home on the ground Ok (obviously on a hoist would be kinder to your body) but you will have to remove the rear bar cover to remove the reinforcement. Other than that it should just bolt in. The hayman reece is a good one.

Maybe see if there is a youtube tutorial ? 

Cant recommend anyone in that area sorry (Im in QLD)

cheers

Just to let you know, I bought a genuine Lexus Bar Yesterday for a customer for around the same price as an Hayman Reece. Might be worth quizzing your local dealer.
