Picked up a Thule 916XTR 2" receiver bike rack, which is the same thing as a Thule T2 Classic. Both racks and others that Thule sells features their SnugTite Lock which works well but the hitch pin that gets installed must go in through the passenger side of the hitch since there is a captured nut on the bike rack that would be pretty difficult to remove. On the Metris the 7 pin connector mount interferes with installing the pin. To fix this issue I drilled a 1 3/8" hole in the mount. If you look at the pictures and need to do this mod I would drill the hole about 1/4" down and 3/16" towards the center of the center of the vehicle than what I did. As a result I needed to shorten the pin to clear the 7 pin connector.

Where did you relocate the trailer wiring harness?
