    No problem.
    It made my life a whole lot simpler when I fitted a Witter bar to our recently acquired CR-V.

    I took a few pictures, but the Honda instructions were actually very good - much better than the ones that came with the tow bar.

    Step 1. Remove Trim
    Trim_Out.

    Step 2. Drop the exhaust back box. Spot the dimples in the boot floor and drill a 19mm hole (size varies with tow bar) through inner skin.

    Left Side:
    Dimples_Left.

    Right Side:
    Dimples_Right.

    Step 3. Using an 11mm drill through the holes just created, drill holes through down through the outer skin of the boot floor. There are further dimples in the lower skin to guide the drill.

    Step 4. Bolt the tow bar together, having dropped spacers down through the 19mm holes.

    Step 6. Plug in the electrics - I was lazy and bought a dedicated loom, that plugged directly into the loom on the drivers side of the boot.

    Step 7. Work out how to put all this trim back in!

    Trim_Pile.
