Don't count on being able to use a tow eye with your Gen 1. Check to see if you have one. I believe that only Amperas and Volts for other markets where it is mandated have the hardware behind that cover to receive a tow eye. My car has a space to store it but didn't come with one.Hello,
I have a Gen 1 and I don't need to use the tow eye bolt to pull the vehicle onto a flatbed tow truck. But, for the Gen 2 this is needed (page 303 of the manual). So, I have a question for you : how do you remove the front bumper tow cover on a Gen 2 ? Pressing on it, prying it ? Where ? How ? Does this work for a Gen 1 ? Where to find a tow eye bolt for the Gen 1 ?
This doesn't help with your question about a Gen 2 but might if you find yourself in a ditch some snowy night.
