Car is stuck in field (don't ask!) Going tomorrow with friend in landrover to tow it out....can't remember where towing eye is? It is facing a hedge so I must tow it from rear, so if towing eye is at front where at the rear should I attach rope?

Thanks.

There is one at the back on the right hand side . The front one is also on the right , in behind a removable piece of the bumper .

Edit - here's a picture showing the eye on my 280SE ( slightly easier to see with the smaller pre-facelift bumper , but in exactly the same place on the later cars ) .
