Genuine Jaguar Electrically Deployable Tow Bar Kit - T4A7049

Post by MiCoHi » Tue Jul 14, 2020 7:47 pm

It's on the car at the moment, but as my dealer says my car is a mash up of MY17 and MY18 and that the chances of getting a proper electrically deployable tow bar fitted is slimmer than the UK winning next year's Eurovision, I'll soon be removing the kit fitted earlier in the year.

Photos to follow, should they be needed, but this is basically the full towing armature, speaker, deployment button, wiring loom and mounting plates/bolts, which when paired with the correct module and coded by the dealer, will give you a factory original electrically deployable towing system.

Collection only from the Warrington area, or we can arrange something I suppose, and at the bargain price of £350, which is a steal if it fits your F-Pace (dealer reckons it's good for 2016 and 2017 model years).

I'd like a towbar for my 2017 and I'm only in Stockport! .... but an added complication is that mine has deployable steps. Same control module that has the three electrical connections. I believe ... DSS=Deployable Side Steps DTB=Deployable Tow Bar and TBE=Tow Bar Electrics. There was a technical bulletin with all the information on it. See if I can find it again. No such complications with my previous Audi Q7 V8 4.2 Tdi quattro ......

Well, from the sounds of things and looking at that pdf, as you have DSS, you should be good to go with just the towbar arm and wiring loom.
If you’d like to PM me, I’m sure we can arrange something mutually convenient.
From what I’m told, my car has bits of both model years on it which is why it can’t take the EDT, only a manual version. The guy from Jaguar said that what is happening at Castle Bromwich now reminds him of what used to go on in the old Rover/British Leyland era, parts bin specials rolling off the line.
It’s almost certainly back to the 4 rings for me next time, sadly.

I wouldn't believe any "guy from Jaguar" that told you that the F-Pace is built in Castle Bromwich as they are built at the Lode Lane facility in SOLIHULL!!! The same plant that manufactures Range Rovers and Range Rover Sport.

I don’t believe I said, or he said that the F-Pace was built there. Without naming names, the chap in question is a time-served member of the service department in my local franchised dealership - maybe calling him a “guy from a franchised Jaguar dealership service department” would be more accurate? Whatever, I do think he has inside knowledge of that particular assembly line though to make a comment like that. And if Solihull is where my car was made, then it seems that plant is also making part bin specials too.

There shouldn’t be any problem fitting the hardware assuming the folding mechanism is working, a switch in the boot operates it. The trailer electrics are tricky because the operating system changed with MY18, coding them to the car is not straightforward, you can fit a universal system but you won’t get the enhanced trailer features.

Hardware is fitted and it was a doddle, agreed. The trouble is (so I'm told by my dealer) that my car has elements of MY17 and MY18, so there's pretty much no way of coding the EDT to the car, regardless of what module is fitted.

I really only need it for a bike rack, so a manual one will be fine, hence the sale of the post electronic one.

Now sold and I've installed a manually operated genuine Jaguar one in it's place. Does the job just fine.
