I just looked under my boot and there is a big hole like a panel is missing, j was looking at were the towbar would go to see what's there now, can anyone else confirm there's is the same or do you have a panel covering this hole ?

Seat in told me they don't have them yet, are they now available for fitment ?
My car was already in the UK when I bought it so no option to add to order from factory with tow bar fitted. I contacted Seat U.K. yesterday regarding availability of a retro fit towbar and was told they will be available to order in September.

Finally, after six months of waiting, SEAT have managed to find a third party detachable tow bar to install on the car! Fingers crossed it will be complete next Friday. Will update with photos once complete!

Was down at the dealership this morning to finalise a few details about my new Tarraco which I am collecting on Thursday. I asked about the retro fit bar which is due in September and they didn’t seem to know about it. The guy said that he would find out more and get back to me, will let you know if I find out any more.

I have just had a detachable tow bar fitted to our Tarraco. It is a smart unit, made by brink. Are you looking for the electrically operated one?

I had one installed and i'm certain its the Allspace version ( It has a VW logo on it) that they fitted, also fits perfectly with detachable tow bar. It has a VW logo on it.

“I have just had a detachable tow bar fitted to our Tarraco. It is a smart unit, made by brink. Are you looking for the electrically operated one?”

No, not an electrically operated one, just a manual detachable. I have a detachable Witter unit on my Leon ST which is being traded in tomorrow.
Was yours fitted by your dealer or by a third party installer?
Any other recommendations please?
Thanks in advance.

I went through our dealer, but they took the car to Indespension, I know PF Jones do one too depending where you are based?

Picked up my new Tarraco this morning and got some more information about the Seat detachable tow bar. The price of the parts, bar and wiring harness, is £589.99 plus fitting of course. I think I’ll be going for an aftermarket version from another source.
