It comes with a stock tow-hook that fits by the passenger side foglight... Is that what you're thinking of?

If that's not it, what type of aftermarket tow-hook was it?
  • big?
  • small?
  • folding?
  • cloth?
  • does it use the stock screw hole?
  • attached to the front strut tower bar?



Try to give us a hint or a pic of what you're looking for...

The information under his name states he has a 2003 WRX, so it's *beside* the foglight cover, there's a little plastic cover.

NB: this is *all* covered in your users manual, it's good to know...

the tow hook is to tempt tow truck drivers to tow your car away so you can get a new transmission.

As long as all 4 wheels are turning your transmission is fine, its when only 2 are turning is the damage done.

^^ this is true...when was the last time you saw a tow truck driver tow a car with all 4 wheels on the ground? tow truck drivers for the most part are retarded because the cars they tow are not theirs.
