Ford C-Max Towbars

Ford C-Max Towing Specifics

The Ford C-Max was first introduced in 2003 by the American manufacturer as a compact MPV, with plenty of towing capabilities. There is currently three generations of the range as well as Grand C-Max and Focus C-Max models. We will cover the towing specifics of each model below.

Ford C-Max Towbar Electrics Kits

It is recommended that all tow bars fitted to a Ford C-Max vehicle are done so with a dedicated electrics kit, rather than a universal electrics kit. A dedicated electrics kit not only ensures all modern features such as; trailer stability and parking sensors are functional but also helps to keep your vehicle's warranty unaffected.

We offer both universal and dedicated electrics kits for the Ford C-Max vehicle towbars, but be aware that universal electrics kits can invalidate any manufacturer warranty your vehicle has and may also require a bypass relay.

Check your Ford warranty for more information.

Bypass Relays

All tow bars for all the Ford C-Max 2003-2007 models will not require a bypass relay if universal electrics are fitted.

All tow bars for all the Ford C-Max 2007-2012 and 2010 onwards models will require a bypass relay if universal electrics are fitted.

A bypass relay works by powering what it is you are towing through transferring power straight from the battery instead of taking too much current away from your vehicle.

Whereas a dedicated system works in harmony with your vehicle's ECU and all of its functions.

Coding

This is the coding of the ECU to accept the dedicated system, this updates your vehicles software to run smoothly with the new towbar.

All Ford C-Max 2003-2007 and 2007-2012 vehicles will not require coding.

All Ford C-Max 2010 onwards vehicles will require coding.

Coding is used to update your vehicles software in order for it to run coherently with the new towbar through the dedicated electrics.

Bumper Cuts

Depending on the towbar, Ford C-Max vehicles may require a bumper cut. A bumper cut is when a fraction of the vehicle's rear bumper is cut in order to fit the towbar.

All Ford C-Max models have towbars that require non-visible and no bumper cuts.

Nose Weight

Nose weight is the amount of weight pushing down on the tow ball, it is important not to exceed the nose weight set on the tow bar, failure to do so could damage the car chassis and/or tow bar mounting points. Nose weight varies depending on the towbar you choose and are displayed under each tow bar below.

All Ford C-Max models have a nose weight of 75kg up to 90kg.

Towing Weight

Towing weight is the weight that a Ford C-Max vehicle can tow safely, without any risk of damaging the vehicle. Towing weights are bar specific and displayed below each towbar.
