    Getting the Yeti ready for towing. Help and advice needed!


    I was wondering if you can advice on experience on a few things I need to buy to tow my Eriba caravan.

    Tow bar - which one doesn’t set off parking sensors? Permanent or detachable? Can I get a tow bar mounted bike rake as I believe these are the better more secure ones?

    Tow mirrors - which brand fits the yeti the best, easy to put on and most secure?

    Roof box - any suggestions for good quality roof box?

    Thank so much in advance

    The yeti is a CAN BUS car and can be very sensitive to cheap tow bars kits and rough installation. There are genuine fixed and detachable kits available from Skoda specifically for the Yeti and a dealer or specialist will know how to re-code the CAN BUS and associated systems such as ABS and park distance control to detect the trailer connection..

    Vile Invention

    Dark was that day when Diesel conceived his grim engine that begot you, vile invention, more vicious, more criminal than the camera even, metallic monstrosity, bale and bane of our culture, chief woe of our Commonweal. How dare the Law prohibit hashish and heroin yet license your use, who inflate all weak inferior egos? Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.
