#1390 of 1440 Re: What to get OEM vs Dealer [maryclover]
Feb 25, 2009 (5:35 am)
On the weather mats I'd get the ones from Weathertech as they contain any runnoff and protect the carpet better then the Toyota ones (Had them both)
For the Protection Pkgs. some are rips offs as mentioned, but depending on where you live I would go with the rust proofing only. On my 06 I had the paint sealant (thrown in on the deal) and I could see the buffer markes in certain light conditions (night) so I was mad from day 1, on the new 08 left over I just purchased I had the rust proofing and interior protection, as it does the carpets and they say the leather as well and with the lighter interior I didn't want a stain. For the outside I'll use Griot's paint sealant and apply myself with a good carnuba wax.
#1391 of 1440 Trailer Wiring Trunk 2009 Toyota Highlander Hybrid
Mar 30, 2009 (6:29 pm)
I ordered an after market trailer hitch package with electrical connections included. All went very well, until I tried to hook up the 4 prong connection in the "trunk". I have a third seat and don't know how to access the prewired connection, that my directions show would be located under the third seat. Does the compartment with tools for changing a tire pull out to expose the wire connection? I was reluctant to do a lot of pulling of the tool tray, not knowing how it is attached. Pls advise.

#1394 of 1440 Trailer connector type?
Jul 20, 2009 (7:14 am)
I have a 2001 V6 Ltd with the Toyota towing package - does anyone know off the top of their head what connector it has (7-pin round, 6-pin round, etc)?
I'm buying a light kit for my utility trailer which has a four-pin flat connector so I expect I need an adapter, I just don't know which adapter. My wife has the HL so I can't go check.
A Toyota dealer service guy just told me it has a 6-pin flat, which I can't find any reference to elsewhere.

In case anyone's interested, the HL connector is a 4-pin flat, at least on my 2001.
So at least I don't need an adaptor - too bad I already ordered one on the trailer accessory company's assurance that the HL had a 7-pin RV connector.

I have an '08 Highlander Limited, so check to see if this helps. The trailer wiring connection is under the storage compartment at the left rear of the luggage compartment. Lift the rear two floor covers, then remove the fastener at the top of the left edge between the compartments. Also remove the two plastic nuts at the bottom of the storage compartment. The compartment should then lift out.
There are two connectors on the floor beneath this compartment. One is for the trailer wiring which must be purchased from a Toyota dealer. The other has a cap on it with wires inside. If you remove this cap, be sure to reinstall it firmly. Failure to do so will cause the backup lights to not work. ( My dealer didn't know this one, but then they are the worst in the country.)

I know you were pretty clear in your post so please bear with me, but I just spoke with WAAG today regarding this part (18326) because I just bought an '07 HH and want to install one.
They *refused* to sell it to me because they said it will not fit the Hybrid as the frame and attachment points are different than the non-Hybrid.
They said the same of their rear bumper guard piece (16742.) (What is the T&H single pipe? Is there a website where I can see that?)
Anyway - not trying to refute your personal experiences, just writing to verify I understood your post correctly and that you were able to install WAAG 18326 on your '06 Highlander Hybrid without any problems.
Thanks so much, would greatly appreciate your response.

I have the same dilema with an 09 Highlander Limited. My connector is under the rear drivers side compartment. The nuts and push plug are remove but I think the jack tool tray needs to come out. How did you get the tool tray out to access the plug.
