Towbar sockets found on a 89 9000i

I recently bought a secondhand towbar fitting. As I understand it, I have to remove the towing eye that's presently just behind the bumper.
But when I checked I discovered that there were also two towing plug sockets bolted to the eye - they look as though they are wired up and they are facing the engine rather than the back as they should to be useful.
Am I right in assuming that these are working and just need turning around and bolting to the towbar? They look as though the car left the factory like this.

Towbar update

Well, I had a look and it seems that my car has the two sockets needed for caravan towing handily bolted up under the bumper plastic, and wired up to the loom. Now I have another question. Do I need to unbolt the bumper in order to revmove the towing eye/bolt on the towbar? There doesn't seem enough space to remove the bolts otherwise!
