    Fair enough.

    I'm a creature of habit and always use two chains regardless of what I'm towing.

    Those with the westfalia, where do you attach your chains and are they easily accessible?

    Cheers
    Ye there is a lug for your chain on the gooseneck , pretty accessible

    Chains should always be attached to the bar thats solidly attached to the car Never to the hitch or in Westfalias case the detachable part.

    Brake safe cables should be attached to the car and not the towbar at all.. I know of a van on a Prado that the cast tongue piece snapped and the van ran back down a hill towball chains and all. Those bars were modified after that

    So I finally got a hold of a tow bar kit. Does anyone know what the long coding is for VCDS?

    The manual shared only shows the instructions for the online tool (ODIS) the dealer would use.

    Thanks! Do you know if it works with the original HEX-CAN or do I need to buy a HEX-CAN V2?

    I did it with my old one, which is the micro-CAN UC with USB. Am planning on upgrading though.
