Hi, we just traded in our 2019 Ascent Limited for a new 2023 Ascent Limited (yay!). We had installed the tow hitch on our 2019 and used the instructions posted on a previous thread here in the forum to do so (see attached). However, does anyone have a newer version of these instructions, or is the install on the 2023 going to be the same as on the 2019? Is there anything we should know about the install on the 2023 vs the 2019? I believe the new part number is L101SXC005. Thank you!

The most up to date instructions are online for L101SXC003:
https://techinfo.subaru.com/stis/doc/accInstallGuide/L101SXC003 - IxI - Issue 04 - 05022019.pdf#search=L101SXC003

One of the main differences from the first version of the hitch is that the cover panel (part K in the L101SXC000 instructions) is no longer included. It's unecessary.

L101SXC005 has a new improved ground. Since the instructions for this version have not surfaced yet, I installed the new ground wire according to the photo I posted in this thread.
Instructions for OEM hitch installation?
