Vauxhall Combo Towing Specifics
The Vauxhall Combo was first introduced in 1986 by the British manufacturer as a panel van, offering decent towing capabilities. We will cover the towing specifics of this model below.
Vauxhall Combo Towbar Electrics Kits
It is recommended that all tow bars fitted to a Vauxhall Combo 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 Vauxhall Combo 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 Vauxhall warranty for more information.
All tow bars for the Vauxhall Combo 1993-2001 and 2001-2012 models will not require a bypass relay, if universal electrics are fitted.
All tow bars for the Vauxhall Combo 2012-2018 and 2018 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.
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 Vauxhall Combo models will not 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.
Depending on the towbar, Vauxhall Combo models will 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 Vauxhall Combo 1993-2001 and 2018 onwards models have towbars that require no bumper cuts.
All Vauxhall Combo 2001-2012 models have towbars that require non visible bumper cuts.
All Vauxhall Combo 2012-2018 models have towbars that require non visible and no bumper cuts.
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.
