1991 W201 190E 2.6 Trailer Hitch Questions

I am looking to put a hitch and wire harness in my baby to tow around a small utility trailer. I can get one on the net for about $200 + wiring harness. It looks like a straight forward installation as far as the hitch goes but I can't find any info on bumper removal or wiring harness connection. Can anyone point me in the right direction? Thanks!

Here is a post from the W201 section on how to remove the rear bumper:


As far as wiring harness connection, I doubt if this has been performed on this type of vehicle, because the towing capacity would be minimal. If a local trailer hitch company would attempt this procedure, let them wire it up for you. Better yet, let them quote and install this for you. Hopefully, you will be towing two bicycles!!
