How can I remove the trailer hitch cover on my Ford Explorer?

Your 2016 or 2017 Explorer may have a panel on the rear bumper that hides the trailer hitch. This panel can be easily removed by placing your hand under the center of the panel, lifting up and out, then placing your fingers behind the panel and gently pulling it off.

Putting it back is just as easy. Just insert the four top tabs of the panel and gently push it in. Then push the bottom of the panel until you hear it snap into place. Done!
