Wiring harness for my Cayenne


Recommended Posts

Hi, I wonder if anyone can help me, I am stuck. My 06 Cayenne V6 came with factory tow option. The problem is that I cannot find the proper wiring harness to fit the plate on the back of the vehicle, all wiring harnesses I found at parts stores dont fit the plate so cant be mounted. The 7 pin round coming off the vehicle plugs into the harness no problem just that screw holes to mount receptacle don't align. I called 3 dealers over the weekend and none of them have this part or have ever heard of anyone needing one. Should vehicle had the proper harness for the U.S. installed at factory? any help with this would be greatly appreciated so I can use this tow option. Thanks.

I used etrailer.com and ordered part number 11775 and it fit the Cayenne. It is a Pollak 7-way rv oem style socket. If you type that part number in their search box you should see it on their site.

If the trailer you will be using has a 'flat 4' or other type of connector you may also have to buy a 7 pin to 'whatever you have' adaptor. I have a flat-4 on my utility trailer and had to buy that adaptor. All works great with this setup.

Good luck.
