The rear Tow Hook on the Patriot bolts on to the side of the frame with 2 bolts. No screw in type shown. You could probably just find the thread size and pitch and have one made up. Looking threw the parts book I did find listings for with and without "tow eye" and nothing specified Export or otherwise.
Artificial intelligence is no substitute for natural stupidity
For those of you interested, I checked with the Service Dept at my dealership, and they actually had a spare "Tow Eye" hook they gave to me for free. We checked it was the correct thread, and sure it enough it is.
This however is not what I was after. I wanted some recovery points at the front / rear for off roading. Same thats available on the Patriot FDII. I know there is another thread here on the forums in relation to this, in which I will ask more questions!!
thats odd... my Compass has those and I was wondering what they were for too. So tow hooks? I wonder why the "car" compass has them, and I wonder why some people say they don't?
Apparently the Tow "eye" hook comes with all Compass exported to Europe and Australia. It is used for general Towing - not for "recovery" in off road situations. I would not use the Tow Eye for connecting to a recovery strap or winch. I would only recommend a proper Tow Hook that is rated and attached appropriately to the frame of the Compass (same as on the Patriot FDII).
Can only wait till a kit is available, and approved by my dealer...
