Volkswagen Golf Sportvan Towbar electric kitsWe recommend that all tow bars fitted to a Volkswagen Golf Sportvan's are fitted with a dedicated electrics kit, this not only helps to ensure all modern features, such as trailer stability, parking sensors function correctly, but also ensures that the vehicles manufacturer’s warranty is not invalidated. A quick look at Volkswagen's warranty page confirms that Golf Sportvan's produced after 2016 will possibly have a manufacturers warranty active.

- A further 1 year / 60,000 miles (whichever is soonest) warranty.
Bypass RelaysVolkswagen Golf Sportvan will require a bypass relay when universal electrics are fitted.
Bypass relays are used to ensure that the kit does not present faults on the dashboard. A bypass relay helps the universal kit hide from your vehicle ECU and functions so as not to put faults on the dashboard hence the name “BYPASS”
A dedicated system works in harmony with your vehicles ECU and all of its functions.
Bumper cutsWe offer all three options for towbars for the Sportsvan, No Cut, None Visible, and Visible, a bumper cut is not always required.
