Got mine from towequipe. On ebay he is towbarman01.

Cost me less than VW and came with the new Hazard warning switch too T:

Is this the one I need?

It appears to tick all the boxes... No bumper removal, no bumper cut, dual mount heights to allow for lowered van, comes with electrics....

Only thing there is the lack of adjustment in the tow ball height...





Compared to the Towequipe version...

The mechanicals of fitting the towbar are straightforward - three bolts each side into the framing members. Most of the suppliers have links to the manufacturers fitting instructions so you can see what you're dealing with before purchasing.

Electrics - I bought a specific wiring kit from VAG (about £40) which contained the loom, towing socket, replacement hazard switch incorporating relay and instructions. Best of all the loom plugged straight into the backplate of the rear lights - no cutting, splicing or messing around. Well worth the money in my opinion. The relay enables the dash tell-tale to function correctly.
Could you post a link bud?
