Detach the screws that surround the rear bumper, using a screwdriver turning counterclockwise.
Detach all of the nuts from underneath the wheel arches with a wrench in order to release the wheel arch mouldings and rear bumper tips of your Corsa.
Cut out a 140mm by 50mm piece of the bottom edge of the rear bumper carefully with the use of a reciprocating saw in order to reveal and remove the Corsa's metal impact beam.
Detach the trim at the back panel of the bumper and detach its bolts with the use a power drill.
Place the plates (included with the tow bar kit) at either end of the Corsa's panel, and then detach its bolts with a power drill.
Place the centre tube (included with the tow bar kit) below the Corsa's spare wheel pan and then remove the spare wheel and the central bolt with a power drill.
Assemble the cross bar (included with the tow bar kit) and screw in the central bolt with a large flat washer.
Straighten the cross bar with your hands to align it with the Corsa's rear body and remove the bolts with a power drill. Place large washers with the bolts and screw them back in using a power drill.
Re-attach and tighten all bolts that were removed from your Corsa and then reattach the impact beam, spare wheel, rear bumper, and the wheel arches.
