Haven't answered the question, how do you get it out of the ditch without making use of the "tow hook".Nowhere does it say that you can't tow the car. 7-21 outlines the proper way to tow the car if needed.
The so called " tow hooks" are not tow hooks, thats why most cars don't come with them. They are tie downs used to secure the car during transport. Using the hook to tow the car can damage the car. RTFM......
The towing that Mazda says you are not supposed to do -
- Flat towing - don't tow the car with all four wheels on the ground
- towing a trailer- The manual says "Never tow a trailer with your Mazda"
Almost every tow truck I have seen has at least one very long cable, means to attach the cable to the car, a winch that the cable is attached to, and some even have arms that extend for use as a crane. Common sense says the tow truck operator should know how to do it.Haven't answered the question, how do you get it out of the ditch without making use of the "tow hook".
How will you get it on the truck with a dead engine? COMMON SENSE ISN'T VERY COMMON...
IIRC this is meant to be a tie down hook not a tow hook(I purchased my car used) So what's with the tow-hook indentation in the styrofoam (bottom right)? Did they not originally come with them? What am I missing on the left indention?
