Has anyone has issues with the bolts lining up with the threads on the santa fe?. I bought a curt hitch and only three of the holes line up. One of the sides looks a little bit more bent than the other side and I think that might have something to do with it.
I tried looking for issues with curt hitches and didn't find anything. I also got this on amazon, for very cheap compared to other sites. I'm pretty sure the hitch is a little bent on the passenger side. I spoke to a guy at curt mfg and he said that it most likely got banged around in the box so they're sending me a new one. Hopefully when I get the new one it will fit perfectly and I won't have any issues.
Loosen all the bolts then start with installing the bolt you have an issue with. Take a jack or egg crates to hold the hitch in place. I have a hidden hitch installed on my 08 Santa fe and did not have any issue.
