    I bought one for my wagon recently, i just got it on ebay for $60 but i think the sedans are cheaper, you could try wrecker as well, just make sure it comes with all bolts etc.

    As for mounting its a 2 person job, and in your case, since its already had one you wont need to drill any holes or anything, just bolt up.

    No towbar is removable on the go. What you are talking about is just the tongue, but they are still held there by a bolt, pin or the like. I think on mine it has 2 bolts holding the tongue in.

    You will also need a towing wiring harness unless it doesnt already.
