Skoda Fabia Estate Towbar Electrics Kits

It is recommended that all tow bars fitted to a Skoda Fabia Estate 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.
