    Default Towbar spare part needed...urgent

    Hi all. Last night on my way home from work I was involved in an accident where I was the front car of a 3 car shunt. My car is fine other than the towbar got bent and I'm going camping next Friday with my trailer tent so don't have the time to put it in a garage. I have removed the damaged part but can't seem to find one online. I don even know what it's called. Can anyone tell me what it's called and where I might get one. It's a slightly angled square bar with a plate on one end that the ball bolts to. I tried to upload a picture but I can't seem to do it, maybe cos I'm using my iPad.

    Isn't that part structural to the tow bar? Does it look removable?

    Can you not bend it back with a big hammer?

    On the bright side at least the towbar took the impact instead of your boot.

    Try Towsure, they have a very extensive catalogue. Almost always by my tow bars from them.

    I would have it checked out ASAP! If its bent the towbar it could of weakened the bolts that connect the towbar! Sometimes find cheap towbars on eBay (fixed) low as £25

    Thanks for the replies. Firstly i have removed it and no it can't be bent back as its about 3/8" steel and too thick to bend with a hammer. I have had it checked out and everything else is sound.
