Wow, didn't realise it was that easy.

I watched a Zafira towbar fitting on youtube and they removed the bumper.

My wife says that I never listen or something like that !

Go on the pf Jones website.
That will tell you if the bumper needs removing or any cuts made.

I chose a Westfalia bar. Took longer than 1 1/2 hrs to fit but was fitted on the drive with basic tool kit.
