2013 TDI Exec with Trailer Prep option.

This is what I know so far (thanks to the sharing of wisdom by many on this forum):
- OEM tow bar (part#7P0092135) preferred over Curt after market vis higher rating)
- OEM wiring kit (part#7P1055203) needs to be installed, despite having the "Trailer Prep Option" listed on the window sticker that came with the car.
- OEM wires and lighting control unit need to be installed behind trim in the trunk area on the right hand side.
- These two posts provide a good overview of the process:

Today, I dug into that rear compartment and was able to locate the green connector in the fender well.

Having trouble locating the red connector and the 2-wire connectors. Any suggestions?

It look a bit of surgery, but the 2 connectors were indeed there to be dug up. In the pricture below you can see that it took some panel removal / loosening / swearing. They are basically tucked away against the front side of the right rear wheel well.






Still trying to figure out exact coding that a few select control modules require for all this to work properly. Will revert.
