Posted by: ChennyZ Aug 19 2017, 12:11 PM
Hello all! I live in NYC and parallel parking is a bitch! My bumper is all scratched up cause people like to bump me when im parked in a spot. Or they try to squeeze in the tightest spots possible.

I want to put on a tow hook on the back of my car and the front. Has anyone does it to a Lancer Sportback before? I myself do not know where to put the tow hook. I have looked under the car for a slot for a pin to fit in but i did not see anything.

Any inputs?! Thanks!

On the front, there's a little round cover to the left of the license plate when you're facing the car, pop that off and you'll find the tow hook threads.

For the rear, there MAY be a similar cover lower on the bumper on the right side. The Evos do have one there.

Pop the panels on the front & back bumpers and screw the tow hooks, like Spaz mentioned, simple as that.

If the rear bumper doesn't have a panel .. there's probably a tow-loop below the bumper like this
