You should fill out your profile, as we can't tell whether you have a sedan/coupe/wagon. The instructions are different. We also need to know what type of hitch you're installing.

ok, I think i filled in my car in the profile now, It is a 95 250d w124, 4d sedan.

I don`t know the brand of the hitch, it came with the car, used. I can take a photo if it helps.

I can only assume you're not in North America, based upon the model vehicle you have. Here's a link to some instructions for the European style hitch available outside of NA. I don't believe we have very many options for the 124 sedans/coupes over here. Curt makes a nice receiver-type hitch for our 124 wagons

Yes, I installed the Da'Lan (Curt) hitch on my S124 a while ago.

Very cool. I might just buy that for my sedan. The receiver hitches are especially nice 'cause I can easily attach my four bike carrier.

photo of the hitch: the part number on the plate is: 021921 and its bosal. will it fit?

I haven't seen one for a sedan not mounted. But it looks very similar to the one i have for the wagon.

A guy a few miles down the road from me tows his ski boat on a regular basis with his 300E. Next time I see it, I'll take a picture. Whatever the specs are, I bet you're good doubling them.

Pic of the tow hitch. Similar too the one you have. It has the removable hitch too right.

Well... I put a hitch on the old 300E and it looks good--as goods as a hitch can look. But I need to find a good rear light connector unit. Any ideas?

I just bought the Curt hitch for my sedan and would like some input from anyone who's installed these before. The instructions are vague and mention an included drilling template which does not appear to exist.
