HOW TO: In this video, I'm going to show you how to modify a Subaru Ascent hitch cover for use with a bike rack or similar accessories.

First, you'll need a spare hitch cover. For tools, you need a high speed cutting tool with a circular cutting disc and a drill with a half inch or bigger metal or spade bit.

This is awesome! Thank you!

I got spare hitch as soon as I got the car, just did not get around to it.
I definitely suggest faster tools, and a new spade bit instead of a regular drill bit. If you use a spade bit, remember to offset it inwards so the cutting edge doesn't go past the template outline.

I'd have preferred to use a 1" spade bit, but, I was being lazy and didn't feel like emptying my workshop to find one.

Nicely done. That's the way that trim piece should have come from the factory. If you don't have a dremel tool, you can also use a jigsaw with a plastic cutting blade. I've cut this type of plastic with success using a jigsaw.
