Detachable Swan Neck For KIA NIRO & 7 Pin Electric Tow bar Wiring Kit including bypass relay. This was fitted to my 2016 Niro 2 for transporting 2 electric bikes, I have now part exchankged for a 2019 Niro and my local Kia dealer have removed the tow bar which I no longer need and is for sale. A new detachable tow bar assembly and electric kit is around £244.00 so selling my one for £100. This is a heavy item so interested party should contact me re carriage cost.

Ah, I was confused by that as well. The "Tow Kit" is for towing the car. I.E., the screw in eyes in the tool kit. The car itself is not able to tow anything, according to Kia UK. It can in Europe apparently, you know, where they have all those high mountains! Seems Kia decided we were not part of europe even before the referendum!

Kia technical confirmed in Dec 2016 my Niro was OK to have a tow bar for a bike carrier only and this was fitted by the local Kia dealer. The new 2019 Niro has had the uprated braking and cooling system same as the European model had from first introduction. As far as I am aware Kia can supply a tow bar kit for the new Niro.

Only if you were coming down the M6, as I am in Lancashire. Otherwise it's looking like a (budget) carrier!
Strong possibility I will be driving down to Kendal this month so could meet at M6 service station nearest you for ££ to be agreed.

Yes, still interested. Let me know the shipping cost please. Looks like my wife and I will be doing more cycling ;). As a matter of interest. my "towing" consisted of 2.5 miles from storage just north of St Michaels on the Wyre village to a pitch just south of it. Pretty flat terrain much like Forfar!

Not an idiot and wouldn't have picked a hybrid/autobox to do serious touring with a van but if it's just brakes and cooling Kia are worried about then a 6 minute journey on flat unclassified roads won't worry a transmission that can handle 39 bhp.

That's okay. We are away next weekend (Friday til Monday) but as it's Parcelforce can pick up at local depot if not in. Would you like payment by bank transfer or Paypal if you have an account?
My details:- J Robinson, 16 Weston Avenue, Rochdale, Lancs, OL16 4TS.
BTW does it have wiring instructions? I have fitted several towbars before so could work it out if not.
