So we just picked up a 2013 Q7 and can't be happier. I notice the tow bar is installed, but next to it is a black plate.
Opened the plate up (4 screws) and saw this round connector.

Where can I get an adaptor/plate to install so I can tow with the Q7?
Also does the car have break assist on the tow package?

plug disconnect?

I was just going through the same process on our Q7, replacing the plate with an actual connector. I couldn't figure out how to disconnect the wire harness from the back of the plate though. I worked on it for a while, but didn't want to break anything. What's the secret for getting the plug to disengage?

Thanks!

You don't disconnect the harness. The adapter goes in place of the plate and engages the contacts already inside.
