fitting the parts is straightforward although you may have trouble getting the orange wire into the fuse box F4 position ! it is all documented on the volvo accessory web site . yes you will need the Trailer Module loaded with the software at the dealer .

not easy even for the experienced ! you pull the red tag out , then pull the top and bottom part of the fusebox apart as far as the catch allows then click in the orange tag .. the rest is up to you ...

cant give any advice on fitting a tow bar, i bought a used v60 towbar and wiring off ebay and got a local fitter to fit it on the car.
However, one slight problem encountered was that the tow bar came off a businness edition and my car is an R design. The R design has two for lights, business edition has one, this caused a problem when wiring the caravan for light, the guy sorted it with some extra wiring.
