Understanding the Transit connect models & Fitting a Towbar

Postby Marcony74 » Sun Jun 17, 2018 11:19 pm


I haven't posted on any forums for quite sometime, however I am confused about understanding the terminology regarding the Connect

I have just purchased my first Transit Connect 07 plate which is the SWB T220 TDCI L90

Can anyone confirm the following, as this is what I have learnt from another post within this forum (viewtopic.php?f=54&t=139164):

SWB means Short Wheel base
T220 is the model and 220 is the Gross Vehicle Weight in kilos (x10 = 2200kg)
TDCI means Tdci = Turbo Diesel Common Rail Injection
L90 is equivalent to the BHP (Break horse power) so is 90 bhp

but what does P65 P70 P80 mean? these are the model numbers when searching for the right Tow Bar comes up on ebay and similar selling sites...

Thing is, I've just brought a Tow Bar from a guy off Facebook and got home then looked at the instructions for part No. So I can find an installation video or some help with fitting it. But I can not find anything, anywhere and all I have is a 1 page booklet with some basic instructions. If any one can help I would very much appreciate it.

The Tow Bar is from a company called Auto HAK,

all the info below is what is printed in the booklet:

Class: A50-X Cat. no. C46
Designed for:
Manufacture: FORD
Model: Transit/Tourneo Connect
Type: Van
produced since 09.2002 till 12. 2008
and -1.2009 till 12.2013

Any help with this would be appreciated.

I never understood the P65/P70 thing either, it only comes up on eBay.
The rest you have right, 2007 would be a Mk2. pre-facelift. Mk2 was 06-09, facelift 09-14.
Can't help you with the towbar though, guess you'll find out when it arrives!
