I would like a towbar for my 2003 Opel Agila (I am not joking!) and I have seen an Opel Agila advertised at a nearby scrapyard with a towbar. The towbar was an optional factory extra according to the service manual from 2003. I can legally tow with it as towing weights are listed in the Manual, and online in many places. I was considering a new eBay DIY kit, but I am worried that they are firstly poor quality, and apparently the instructions are crap, and I do not want to fit it wrong for obvious reasons!
I also think removing the towbar myself would be a good idea as then I can see how it is fitted back on.
Would there be any (mainly safety) problems with using a second hand towbar and mountings from an identical donor car (2003 Opel Agila) from the local Scrapyard/Breakers?
Because almost every single one of my recent questions seems to have a British/American English language problem, this is a towbar!
I would preferably not want to buy one online unless there is no other choice, as I want to check the quality, and I have had several bad experience with online car parts from eBay and Amazon that either do not fit or work properly.
