2021 Citroen C4 7 seat.+++

Post by Pete i »

Hello C4 Grand Spacetourer owners. I have just aquired a 2021 reg 7 seat vehicle. I want to have a tow hitch fitted but looking underneath I have a plastic cover and under that cover is a huge adblue tank, or at least that is what I think it is. Anyway I cannot see anywhere where a tow hitch could be fitted so if anyone has any info on this I would be grateful.

I also wanted to get a winch and carrier for a Road Angel space saver wheel that I have bought. At the moment I am keeping it in the boot which is a tad inconvenient. The hole in the boot for the winding mechanism is there as is the plastic tool carrier situated behind the left hand third row seat. There are no tools and no winding mechanism. I can buy everything that is needed but because of that aformentioned large tank I don't think there would be room to accomodate the wheel once winched up. The adblue filler cap used to be in the underneath the right hand third row seat on older models and I do have a blanked of hole where that used to be on older models and I am assuming that the adblue tank was much smaller. My adblue filler cap is situated next to the diesel filler cap. So if anyone has a newer model grand Spacetourer I would be grateful if someone could tell me if what I want to add to my car is feasable.

Thank you.

Pop your VIN up and I'll take a look officially as to what the options (if any) there are for this vehicle. Please post your VIN in full without spaces - it will be automatically masked from public view after submitting your post & will only be visible to staff.

Don't count on getting a winch system either - there's no room for it I suspect - but I'll have a better idea of options when I know exactly what you have.

Ok, so as expected for this car with Adblue Tank and Eolys additive tank, there's likely no room, so hence space saver and inflation gunk.

As for towbar - there is only one towbar showing along with compatible electronics to match the vehicle's reversing and ESP systems.

1613124180 is the one from Thule that shows what's involved - I've provided the installation guide with photos so you can see what's involved:

Okay thank you that. I suspected that the tyre question was what you said so that can stay in the boot. I'm not going to rely on the goop. I have the car booked in to a local towing company and I would hope that he knows what he is doing but I did notice that the tow hitch you mentioned is a removable one and he has said that he is fitting a fixed one so I better have a word with him. Anyway thank you for that info, much appreciated.
