Default Wiring kit source?

I have had a witter tow bar fitted to my new XC60 but so far only with a universal wiring kit. Where can I get wiring kit that provides full integration?

Evening all

I wonder if anyone had tried this. I'm just about to collect a car with a fixed towbar. I'm not likely to use it very often so would like to take the end off, leaving the main bracket in place for future use. Has anyone attempted this and is there space behind the bumper to access the bolt holding it on?

Done myself on a XC60 Y14.5, not a hard job at all. I believe it took 2-3 hours to do it all.
i bought a genuine towbar from Volvo dealer on a well know website for about 400. That's included all bolts and electric modules. plus 30 for programming it in.

Hi thanks for the reply. I was only intending to remove the end of the towbar, I was hoping to avoid a strip down and leave the mounting bracket in place. Then, on the very odd occasions I need it again, refit it with the single bolt holding it to the main crossbracket.
