Vauxhall Mokka Towbars
Vauxhall Mokka Towing SpecificationsThe Vauxhall Mokka is a Crossover SUV, it was launched in late 2012. We will look at the towing specifications of the Vauxhall Mokka below.
Vauxhall Mokka Towbar electric kitsWe recommend that all tow bars fitted to a Vauxhall Mokka 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 Vauxhall's warranty page confirms that only Mokka's produced in the last three years will have a manufacturers warranty active.
"Vauxhall’s new vehicle warranty ensures your peace of mind against material or manufacturing defects for three years (unlimited mileage for the first 12 months and subject to a total mileage limit of 60,000 miles from first registration). This applies to all cars and vans except Mokka and New Movano, the additional warranty for which carries a limit of 100,000 miles from first registration." Vauxhall Warranty informationWe do of course offer, Vauxhall Mokka universal electrics kits, however as stated these will invalidate any manufacturer warranty you may have.
Bypass RelaysVauxhall Mokka 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.
CodingThis is the coding of the ECU to accept the dedicated system, this updates your vehicle's software to run smoothly with the new towbar, it works very much like an update to your smartphone. All Vauxhall Mokka will not require coding.
Bumper cutsThe only option on Vauxhall Mokka towbars are None Visible, and Visible, a bumper cut is required.
