2020 Defender



The front towing eye is designed for both on-road and off-road recovery (up to 6.5 tonnes). If the towing eye is used for any other purpose, it may result in vehicle damage and can cause serious injury or death.


Use extreme caution when moving or towing the vehicle. Death or serious injury may occur.


Remove the front towing eye cover before driving off-road, to prevent damage or loss. The cover must be replaced before driving on the road.

The front towing eye is located behind a removable cover in the front bumper.

To remove the cover:

  1. Rotate each of the fasteners counter-clockwise with a suitable tool.

  2. Pull the cover forward from the rear lower edge to release the lower tabs and the lugs on the top edge of the cover.

  3. The towing eye is located in the centre of the exposed area.

To refit the cover:

  1. Offer up the cover. Make sure the lugs at the top edge and the tabs in the bottom edge engage with the holes in the bumper.

  2. Rotate each of the fasteners clockwise to secure the cover in position.
