E24 rear tow strap

Post by chicane » Thu Oct 17, 2019 3:15 pm

Where on the E24 do I properly attach a tow strap for moving an inoperable vehicle?

Don't all E24's have a rear tow hook. My 1985 does.

I would be careful if you tow with that. Take it easy!

Agreed, I've seen them pull/tear from the spare tire wheel well.

I think that the loop is more of a tie-down for transportation than for towing :wink:

Don't take a chance pulling a car with a strap--have it flat bedded if your going any distance.

If it's moving from one spot to another gentle pulling should be ok.
