Front Towing Hook for 2018?

Thu Oct 18, 2018 12:02 am

I want to get a Front Towing Hook for my 2018 Leaf. Does anyone know the correct part number? parts.nissanusa.com doesn't list a towing hook for the 2018 but it does for the 2015. Does the 62680Z TOWING HOOK-FRONT (Part Number: 511121KA0A) for the 2015 Leaf fit the 2018?

As a 2011 Leaf owner, I can say the eye-bolt that comes with it is 8 inches long, is size M24 w/ 3.00 threads, and has 12 threads. If you haven't already, check that under the little door on the left front that there actually is a threaded socket. If so, it may be unchanged from the 2011 Leaf -- but either measure it somehow or borrow a metric bolt (<-- I entered lowercase here, BTW) from a hardware store that fits it to verify its size. Also, if you haven't already, check the little toolkit that comes with the Leaf to see if it might not have the right eye-bolt there (located in a storage compartment on the left right next to the hatch on my Leaf). Hope this helps...

The 2015 Leaf SV I previously leased had the front towing hook. I had to use it twice: once when I got a flat and the other time when I ran my battery down to 0. Pulling the Leaf onto the flat bed tow truck was really easy with the front towing hook and so I want to make sure that I have it the next time I need it.

Since my 2015 Leaf included the hook, I assumed that the 2018 Leaf SL would but no such luck. Not a big deal. I'll just go buy one but Nissan doesn't even list as a part for the 2018!

If I had known the 2018 wouldn't include the hook, I would've at least tested the 2015 hook in the 2018.

Anyone have a 2015 hook that can confirm that it works in a 2018?

I bought a 51112-1JA0A from Ebay for about $30. It is a 24mm 3.0 pitch and Works perfectly on my 2018.
