The triangle shaped bits are attatched with one nut per side, instead of three per side.

Looked under my 2016 TH, the nuts are missing, which is great because I was towing a trailer (600 pounds) I'll have to check my window sticker again, maybe "Some assembly required with the tow package" is on there. I'll be getting grade 10 or grade 8 nuts and installing them myself.

Surprising how slow this goes. Identified above on 8/22. I didn't get my recall notice until 9/20ish. Canada apparently was notified back in July about this same issue. Recall S62 - trailer tow hitch assembly

Even more frustrating is they don't have the parts to fix it? How hard is it to install a few nuts? My car is supposed to go in for multiple service engine notifications (even after they replaced the TCM) on Monday, and I wanted them to fix both issues at the same time.

Yeah, if one can't wait with already towed contraptions, good on ya for fixin' it yourself rather than wait for Jeep to make their official stadium recall sayin' the gates are now open to bring 'em all in. However, Jeep will want to know if you did this yourself down the line.

The hitch recall is for missing BOLTS not NUTS

Those nuts have nothing to do with the recall. It is for the anchor bolts. They are heavy duty 14mm bolts that anchor into the arms of the trailer hitch bumper that insert into the frame.

Here is inside the wheel well looking from the drivers side showing three bolts properly installed. Two face the outside of the vehicle and one faces the ground.

Mine had factory fit of the European removable towing Ball. It is identical to Westfalia one, we had two trailhawks alongside each other at the weekend and one was aftermarket fit and they are identical, apart from the cap that goes over the ball doesnt have "westfalia" written on it.

So, according to this thread, its either some of the smaller Nuts or the large Bolts that are missing.
I took a look under mine and took some photos, so this may help anyone that had one fitted in UK perhaps.

Bolts mentioned are ringed in black, nuts mentioned are ringed in red

Looking under my Jeep, its pretty easy to check if they are in place and thankfully they all are.

Nearside, on a UK right hand drive car:




Offside on a RHD car (drivers side):



Its an easy check to make, they can all be seen up underneath the bumper, if it is indeed these nuts and bolts.
