HHR Baseplate removal

I'm in the process of selling my HHR. I had the baseplate installed and I'm wondering if this is something I can take off myself without removing the front bumper etc. Txs

They had to remove it to install mine so I would think it has to be removed.

Read the install instructions. It will come off the way it went on. Only backwards.
Why not advertize it being ready to tow?

By all the time you spend to take it off and sell it as used price. Will it even be worth the time?

When ever I sell or trade my HHR. Probably at least another 3-4 years or more. Base Plate and wiring will go with it. But I will take the air brake system out of it.

Trying to sell as toad...but interested party may not want. I thought if it was simple I'd remove myself.

If it is a Blue Ox, you can go on their web site and download the installation instructions for your particular model. Look it over and start at the back and do everything in reverse.

HHR Baseplate removal

Not difficult at all. Removed mine when I sold it. Seems like there were about 8 tiny screw/bolts and a clip or two---nothing hard.

The Blue Ox site will give you all you need.

It comes off the same way it goes in. One must remove the front clip of the car to take the baseplate off. Probably 2-3 hours labor.

I'd suggest leaving it on.
