Just the pics I was looking for. Can the bike rack gubbins be retro fitted to my ID.3 or does it have to be a factory fit?

I had my first outing yesterday with Thule bike rack fitted. Everything worked well. The only issue was that I couldn't get the key out of the tow bar lock. Amy ideas?
It goes out in certain lock position.
Hard to figure out, but the lock can be pressed and turned. :P

Mine was dealer retrofitted, but vw original. (Do you mean the hook, or carrier?)

The hook. Good to know that they can be retrofitted.

I bought the car from dealer to get 16% tax in 2020 and must be was heat pump and bike hook.
Didn't get turquise color but can live with it and dealer offered almost half a price for retrofitting hook (390€ factory, abt. 1000€ price, offer for 570€ fitted).

I have an Atera rack - the key is stuck in unless you have fully locked the rack. When attaching the rack to the tow hitch this often means an extra squeeze on the lever.

I think that I can't get a retrofit on my 1st? Anybody have any experience of this?
