Towbar kit for Audi A5 cabriolet - consisting of: Towbar: detachable ball and Electric wiring: specific 7-pin.

Year of manufacture: 11.2016 - present. Approved Types according to 94/20/EC/ECE-R-55. Detachable ball without vertical tool. Cannot be used for RS and S5 models. It is possible that the vehicle's engine cooling system may not be sufficient for trailer operation.

In this case, it may be necessary to replace parts of the cooling system (e. We are happy to help you check if your vehicle has the necessary preparations, please contact us with the chassis number.

All necessary screws and fasteners are included in the delivery. Authorization from the Mines Service required. Cut dimensions Length x Height (mm). General operating approval (ABE) and ECE - product certification (Homologation).

Trailer towbars that are already approved according to the ECE 55 regulation or previously 94/20/E have already been tested according to European standards. They comply with CE directives, are tested and approved for the French market. It is not necessary to have the towbar approved by an expert or inspector after installation or to have it registered on the vehicle papers. What is the towing capacity? The towing capacity defines the maximum total weight allowed, with which a vehicle equipped with a suitable towbar can tow a trailer.

Depending on the type and version of the vehicle (engine power), this can vary. You can find the maximum allowed trailer load for your vehicle on your registration certificate. Where can I find this entry in the vehicle documents? Depending on the age of the vehicle, you will find the value on the vehicle registration certificate. Take the value from the F.

3 area and subtract it from the value in the F. In order to calculate the maximum allowed towing mass for the vehicle. In exceptional cases, this value can be increased by calculation.

Please follow the instructions on the vehicle registration certificate - especially for slope indications. For the towbars we offer, you will find the maximum allowed trailer load of the towbar in the technical data of the product view. Important: If the maximum towing load value of the vehicle and the trailer towbar are not the same, the lower value always applies. Example: If a maximum trailer load of 1,500 kg is indicated in the vehicle document, but the associated trailer towbar has a tested trailer load of 1,800 kg, only 1,500 kg can still be towed.

Under certain conditions, an increase in the trailer load can be requested for the vehicle. This requires approval from the respective vehicle manufacturer, for example Audi, BMW, Mercedes... The vehicle must then be presented to an expert. With the test certificate you receive from them, you can have the change recorded in the documents of your vehicle at the registration office.

The authorized trailer load in kilograms can be determined as follows: Formula for calculating value D: (Total weight Trailer load 9.81) / (Total weight + Towing capacity) Formula for calculating trailer load: (value D total weight) / (total weight 9.81 - value D) Formula for calculating total weight: (value D trailer load) / (trailer load 9.81 - value D) Formula for calculating the static mass according to the 4% rule: Trailer load 0.04 GF = (authorized total weight of the vehicle in kg) see vehicle registration D = (value D in kN) see towbar nameplate/installation instructions. What is a bumper cut? When cutting the bumper, a piece of the bumper is cut out on the rear part of the vehicle. It is important to note that there are visible and non-visible bumper cuts. This depends individually on the bumper design.

Trailer hitch manufacturers always try to avoid bumper cuts. If this is not possible, the cut is limited to the minimum necessary. If the bumper needs to be modified, you can always find it in the respective installation instructions for the article.

If a cut is necessary, you will also find the dimensions or a template that defines the size of the desired cut. Tip: Use a jigsaw with a fine saw blade for the cut, as it allows you to work with plastic very easily and with precision.

To make the cut edges smooth again, you can carefully heat them with a lighter. Professionals can also do this with a Bunsen burner or a "Blue-Fire". But keep a sufficient distance to shape perfectly.

The maximum weight that can be applied vertically from above on the towball of the trailer hitch. The authorized vertical load of the vehicle can be found in the vehicle manual under the "trailer use" section.

The maximum static load of each towbar device is indicated on the approval plate and in the installation instructions. Tip: If you want to mount a rear bike rack with an electric bike on your trailer hitch, you must pay attention to a high static load. Important: What happens when the vertical load values between the vehicle and the trailer hitch are not the same? Example: If the manufacturer has allowed a maximum vertical load of 75 kg for the vehicle and the trailer hitch has an approved vertical load of 60 kg, the value of the trailer hitch is decisive. In this example, it would be 60 kg. In this case, the lower value always applies. This value of a trailer hitch is expressed in Kilo-Newton and serves as a basis for calculating the permissible trailer load. Value D is determined and checked once and remains unchanged.

Only the value D and the authorized vertical load are indicated on the approval plate of the trailer hitch. The indication of value D allows the determination of the bandwidth during a modification reception according to § 19 (3) StVZO (German road traffic regulations). For example, it is possible to modify the authorized total weight by varying the trailer load accordingly, without a new inspection. The required value D according to directive 94/20/EC can be determined as follows: GF = (authorized total weight of the vehicle in kg) see vehicle registration GA = (authorized trailer load of the vehicle in kg) see vehicle registration. What is a foldable socket holder?

The socket is mounted on a support plate with a hinge and can be folded under the bumper. It is not mandatory, but simply an improvement in appearance. Many detachable and swiveling trailer hitches are equipped with retractable sockets. We even have some rigid towbars with this feature in our range. Info: The construction of a trailer hitch device with a foldable socket support plate depends on the presence of sufficient space between the cross tube of the towbar and the rear part of the vehicle.

Is a technical inspection necessary? Almost all towbars in our range have an approval plate and are therefore tested according to the "94/20" directive. Such a towbar can be used on public roads without further inspection. According to Article 27, Paragraph 1 of the StVZO (German road traffic regulations), a trailer hitch retrofitted with an approval plate must only be added during the "next vehicle document inspection" at the registration office. However, according to clause 1a, any possible change in the authorized trailer load resulting from the installation of the towbar must be reported without delay.

After installing a trailer hitch that requires an individual inspection at the technical inspection, we provide a certificate, with which you must have an individual inspection carried out after installation. You will receive a document with which you must immediately register the change on your vehicle papers at the registration office. National brand (M, F, N).

The same conditions apply here as for the individual technical inspection procedure. The only difference is that these trailer hitches have a permanently granted approval certification. Info: A trailer hitch that has been tested according to EC94/20 fulfills the following criteria: - The trailer hitch has a valid approval plate with all necessary data - The distance between the towball and the bumper and the road surface complies with the regulations. The construction has passed the endurance test with 2 million load changes. All prescribed mounting locations by the vehicle manufacturer have been adhered to. Important: The installation instructions must be included with the vehicle papers and must be in the vehicle! What is the installation time?

The installation time of a towbar is indicated by the towbar manufacturer himself. This time is limited exclusively to the installation of the product. This time does not include, for example, the installation or fitting of the bumper. Tips: To avoid calculation errors, calculate the specified indicative values with a factor of two.

Experience shows that this comes closest to the actual installation time. What is a socket support plate? The socket, whether 7 or 13-pin, is always attached to the socket support plate with 3 screws. Some trailer hitches are even equipped with a folding function. What is an approval plate? Each towbar device must be equipped with an approval plate in order not to invalidate the vehicle's registration. An approval plate must contain the following information: - Diameter of the towball - Approval number - Serial or manufacturing data - Static load kg - Value D in kN - Type Info: Feel free to ask us for the corresponding document. For pre-equipped and non-pre-equipped vehicles. Compatible with additional kit for permanent use.

Deactivation of rear parking sensors. The socket allows connection to the trailer plug and ensures electrical connection between the car and the trailer. A simple connection that is sufficient to meet legal requirements.

Like all 7-pin wiring harnesses, special functions such as permanent power supply or reverse lights (on the trailer) are not possible. This is a waterproof connector with easy handling. In the meantime, this variant has become the standard for original equipment.

Signaling functions and permanent power supply or reverse lights can be transmitted without any problem. Additional free pins are also available and offer useful options, especially in the camping area. What does original connector mean? The connections between the vehicle and the wiring harness are made using existing connectors, which eliminates any connection errors.

What does diagnosis required mean? Modern wiring harnesses are equipped with trailer control modules that can exchange data with the vehicle control units. Some functions, such as deactivation of parking sensors, trailer stability control, and deactivation of rear fog lights, only work when both control units have learned to communicate with each other.

Therefore, it is necessary to perform a corresponding coding on the vehicle using a diagnostic tester. What is trailer stability control?

The current driving situation of the car is monitored by sensors installed on the vehicle. Once the trailer plug is connected, the vehicle recognizes the "trailer" operating mode and monitors all dynamic movements of the vehicle. If the trailer gets into a critical state, the vehicle's onboard computer assists the driver in regaining control of the situation. Info: - TSP, Trailer-Stability-Program - TSM, Trailer-Sway-Mitigation - TSA, Trailer-Stability-Assist Technical note: Trailer stability control only works if a wiring harness supports it. For this purpose, the wiring harness must be registered in the vehicle's data bus system through activation.

Vehicles without TSP as standard cannot be equipped with this function using a wiring harness compatible with TSP. What is a universal wiring harness? A universal wiring harness is suitable for different brands and types of vehicles, but is not specific to any particular model. Typical properties: - Connection is made to the power supply wires. The functions of each wire must be identified. The wiring may need to be shortened or extended if necessary. The installation instructions do not refer to vehicle-specific characteristics.

Tip: If possible, always buy a vehicle-specific wiring harness, as installation errors are almost excluded. What is a specific wiring harness?

A specific wiring harness has been specially developed for a particular vehicle. Before marketing a specific wiring harness, a test installation is carried out on the vehicle to ensure proper functioning.

Typical properties: - Pre-designed connectors - Exactly tailored cable lengths - The installation instructions describe all necessary work steps in text or pictograms for correct installation. Info: There are vehicle-specific wiring harnesses that are also suitable for multiple vehicle models, as vehicles are often built on the same platform regardless of the manufacturer! Tip: Specific wiring harnesses save installation time and therefore money. What does pre-assembled socket mean? One end of the cable harness is already connected to the socket.

This makes installation easier and saves valuable installation time. What is a socket with screw terminals? The socket insert has connection slots for cable attachment, which make contact using a screw terminal. What is a socket with crimp contacts?

In the case of a crimp socket, the wires are already installed in the contact carrier. This results in a gas-tight compression of the cable with the contact pin, ensuring optimal contact connection. What is rear fog light deactivation? When the fog light system is deactivated, the rear fog lights of the towing vehicle are turned off.

It does not matter if the trailer has its own fog light system. Note: When using a rear bike rack with its own lighting units, it is mandatory for the rear fog light of the car to be deactivated (in Germany). What is a flasher relay or flasher unit?

Flasher relays are also called flasher units and are used to transmit the flashing impulse to the vehicle's flashers or, if applicable, to the trailer's flashers. In case of malfunction, the flashing frequency changes. What is a trailer control unit? The trailer control unit partially or completely controls the lighting of the trailer.

The impulse usually comes from the rear lights of the vehicle, which the control unit transmits to the trailer. Trailer detection is used to indicate to the towing vehicle whether a trailer or bike rack is attached. This is often done using a microswitch integrated in the power socket. What is a C2 indicator?

The C2 indicator is an additional green indicator. It must be placed on the dashboard, within the driver's field of vision. Info: On certain types of vehicles, a C2 indicator is already equipped to be controlled by the flasher unit. Practical: In trailer mode, the C2 indicator flashes at the same time as the standard indicator.

Even without a trailer, it can flash up to three times, but it must then go out! What is a wiring diagram?

In the wiring diagram of a 7 or 13-pin socket, it is defined which wire occupies which contact of the socket. The identification of the wires is done by colors. The contacts of the socket are identified by numbers and letters. A microswitch is a small electrical switch that is integrated into the power socket of the wiring harness.

It can be used for different functions, for example: deactivation of EPH, trailer detection, etc. What is a central connector? Some vehicles are already prepared to receive a "factory wiring harness". In such cases, there is one or more central connectors that are ready to serve as connection points for the trailer cable set.

What is a permanent power supply? The additional permanent power supply is a continuous 12Volt voltage that provides continuous current to contact "no. 9" and is only possible for 13-pin trailer sockets according to DIN/ISO 11446. What is a charging cable? A battery in the trailer can be charged with a charging cable while driving.

This works via contact "no. 10", a 13-pin socket according to DIN/ISO 11446. As soon as the contact is interrupted, the power supply is interrupted by a cut-off relay.
