Rear Mounted Cycle Carrier – RHD (T4K1179) - Installation Instructions

Post by Bigpurplepenguin » Fri Aug 30, 2019 2:25 pm

Hi,

Does anyone have the installation instructions from Topix for the Rear Mounted Cycle Carrier – RHD (T4K1179)? I was sure I'd seen it on the forum but cant find it any more.

Thanks in advance!

I don't know if @Pcheaven comes on here much any more since selling his I-Pace, but he had the cycle carrier and I think was also a user of Topix, so you might want to try dropping him a PM or even just searching his old posts, it might be one of them you were thinking of.

Edit: or just follow the link in the post above :-)

I just had a conversation with Jaguar and was informed to purchase the rear cycle rack I would need to have a tow bar fitted at a garage and this would also involve drilling holes for cable routing.
This highlights why I could not find any reviews of this cycle carrier, as a active tri athlete I am well pissed with this as I thought it would have been a plug and play system for the price.
Annoying and over priced and bordering on mid advertising from the limited information you can obtain, let down Jaguar expected more.

Paul -

You won't need a tow bar to fit the cycle carrier. Actually, I think the carrier is incompatible with a tow bar as it would occupy the same space. You do need electrics fitting though - it's a very quick job. It does require a hole for the cables to go through the floor in the boot somewhere. It's not at all noticeable once done.

The carrier is made by Thule and is easy to use.

To be clear, the rear-mounted rack, which I have, does not need a tow bar fitted. However the so-called preparation kit, listed as a standard fitting in the specifications for the car, has to be installed which is simply a wiring harness and socket that the dealer can fit. The rack simply screws into the existing holes for the rear tow eyes. What the dealer might be confused by is that there is an alternative cycle rack that can clamp on a tow ball if already fitted. Both racks are made by Thule for Jaguar

That answers a lot of questions as I was looking at the Thule , a lot cheaper also and it seemed very similar.Thanks appreciate the reply

To add further, I have the factory fitted tow bar/electrics and a Volvo cycle rack that clamps to the tow bar. Not a Jaguar recommendation but it works well.

The rear towing eye version connects to the car at two points and is more stable than the tow ball version. I had the towbal version on my previous car, but prefer the towing eye rack. It's excellent
