I would be interested to know if anyone has fitted or even priced, the Flex Fit bike carrier system. I can find very little info on it as a post purchase fit despite it taking up several pages in the user guide.
Hi, I phoned my local dealership 6 months after buying my Antara from them to price this for me and was told it cannot be retro fitted. It's only a factory fitted option when new. It's to do with the way the chassis & body are fitted according to them.
I've gone for a towbar & a platform carrier from PF Jones & eBay respectively. Very reasonable prices and only 8 bolts to fit it. Did mine in a few hours last weekend
Thank you for the Info, this was anticipated. I have a MaxxRaxx tow bar system which I will likely now install, my challenge is that I've just added parking sensors to the Antara that I suspect will conflict with a tow bar mounted system.
Thanks again for taking time to respond
No problem. If you have the Maxxraxx system you may probably know this already but here goes.
Some Antara's have a thing called trailer prep which is a pre-wired socket attached to the right chassis just behind the exhaust rear box. If yours has this & you plug in a dedicated wiring harness it will disable your parking sensors.
If yours doesn't have this then it doesn't matter what you fit, they will interfere with the sensors.
Hope this helps
