New ML500 owner

I am in Victoria Australia. I have recently purchased a 2007 ML500 and now want to fit a tow bar (trailer hitch). Can anyone tell me it there are any hidden bolts and nuts to find other than the obvious in order to get the rear bumper bar off the car? I understand that I have to purchase the module (SAM) and wiring loom from MB as non genuine ones are not available. Is this true?

The car how now done 90,000 kilometres. When it is started from cold the lifters are really noisy and stay that way until the engine is warm (5 minutes or so) and not just until the oil gets up to them. The dealer is not worried about them but could it be a weak oil pump?

Regards....
