Today we are going to be working on a 2009 Chevy HHR. We will be installing Curt hitch part number 11447. Here are a couple of measurements that will assist you in ing accessories for your new hitch.

From the center of the hitch pin hole to the outermost point on the bumper is 6- ½ inches. From the top of the receiver tube to the ground is 10- ¾ inches. This will assist you in ing accessories such as a bike rack, cargo carrier, or draw bar.

Now let us go ahead with the installation. 0:31

Today on this 2009 Chevrolet HHR we are going to install part number 118407 from Tow Ready, their T-One wiring harness. The first thing we need to do is get behind the access panels, do that on both sides. Then remove the carpeting and the floor panel as well. Also remove the spare tire cover at the bottom. The center threshold part we will pop that loose, we just pull up from the bottom and gently tugged at it and it came right out.

Now we will start working on our electric connections. 00:37

Today on this 2009 Chevrolet HHR we are going to install part number 24756 from Draw-Tite. This will also apply to part number 60815 from Hidden Hitch.

This is what the hitch looks like on the vehicle. Next we will give you some measurements to help you out in selecting some accessories such as a ball mount, a bicycle rack, or a cargo carrier. From the top of the receiver opening down to the ground is going to be 10-1/ 4 inches. From the center of the hitch pin hole to the outside edge of the bumper itself is going to be six inches.

Next we are going to show you how the hitch gets installed on the vehicle. 00:35

2009 Chevrolet HHR Questions and Answers

This has actually come up before and Roadmaster explained that they have not tested their base plates with the EAZ Lift tow bars so I cannot say if they will fit or not. You would need to contact EAZ Lift to determine if they have tested it with Roadmaster or Blue Ox base plates. What I recommend is using the Roadmaster base plates, # 3141-1, and using a tow bar that you know is compatible like the Falcon 2, # RM-520.

You will also need safety cables like # RM-643. Next you will need a light

I did some research and found that the 2009 Chevy HHR uses a 3157 brake light bulb. There are several options that will fit your vehicle. For flashing LEDs I recommend Putco red LED, # P235357R. When a vehicle has a red tail light lens you should use a red LED for brake lights.

For non-flashing brake lights you can use Putco 360 degree bulbs, # P233157R360. I have also included a link to the exterior light main page for your 2009 Chevy HHR. There is no modification required to install the

Yes, I checked with Rhino Rack and the Rhino Rack Roof Rack system # SXB2-SILV that you referenced will work on your 2009 Chevy HHR. You will need to check the owners manual of your vehicle to determine what the recommended weight capacity for your vehicle is and be sure not to exceed this figure.

Both the Thule Raceway, # TH9001, and the Thule Gateway, # TH9006XT, will fit your 2009 Chevy HHR. There are numerous bike racks that will fit your HHR. I have included a link to them for you. I have also included some links on the Raceway and Gateway. If I had to choose between the two racks, I would personally go with the Raceway.

The ratcheting hooks that the Raceway uses to attach to the vehicle are much easier to use than the straps and buckles used by other racks. The Raceway also featu

The Roadmaster base plates, # 523159-1, are base plates for a 2008 to 2010 Chevy HHR SS models only. It sounds like you need a compatible tow bar for the XL style base plates you already have on your 2009 HHR. The most popular option for XL style base plates is the Falcon 2, # RM-520. I have included a link to the installation instructions and a link to a video review for you. You will also need safety cables like # RM-643.

The coiled design helps keep the cables off of the ground. You wil

The Draw-Tite trailer hitch, # 24756, does not come with a wiring harness, ball mount, hitch pin and clip, or ball. All of those items would have to be purchased separately. I recommend going with the Hidden Hitch model, # 60815. This hitch comes with the ball mount, hitch pin and clip. For a 1-7/8 inch diameter ball use # 19256 and for a 2 inch ball use # 19258.

For trailer wiring, use # 118407. I have included links to the installation instructions for the hitch and wiring for you.

The problem is that all of the trailer hitches available for the 2009 Chevy HHR are Class I hitches with a tongue weight capacity of 200 pounds. The weight of the chair plus a carrier will exceed the tongue weight capacity of any of the available trailer hitches. However, there is a good solution. Magneta trailers makes a special trailer just for power chairs/scooters. A trailer will be the only way you will be able to carry the chair with the HHR.

But first you will need a trailer hitch. I r

The distance from the center of the hitch pin hole on your CURT Hitch # 11447 out to the furthest point on your 2009 Chevy HHR will be about 6-1/2 inches. Check out the video I attached that shows this hitch installed on an HHR and has that measurement. The Curt 20×48 Cargo Carrier # C18145 that you referenced has a distance of 6 inches from the center of the hitch pin out to the nearest upright portion of the cargo carrier so it would not be a good choice for you. I would recommend a Dr

For this particular installation I do not see a difference in the installation so I believe the difference is just in the amount of time the manufacturers stated at the time of engineering. The installation is essentially the same for all of the hitches (see link) offered for the 2009 Chevrolet HHR. I would allow a bit more time, maybe 1-1/2 hours, for the installation if working off of the ground without a lift.
