Video Transcript for Trailer Hitch Installation - 2010 Mazda CX-9 - Curt

Today on our 2010 Mazda CX9, were going to be installing the Curt Hitch, part number 13575. This is what our hitch will look like once its installed. Here are a couple of measurements that will assist you in selecting accessories for your new hitch. From the center of the hitch pinhole to the outermost edge of the bumper is 4-3/4 inches. From the top of the receiver tube to the ground is 12-3/4 inches. This will assist you in selecting accessories such as a drawbar, a bike rack, or a cargo carrier.

Now, lets go ahead with the installation. First, well go ahead and point out our attachment points. Theres a total of eight attachment points, four on each side. Each one of these attachment points is a well nut, pre-manufactured in the frame. Before we try to install our new hardware, were going to go ahead and clean out each one of these attachment points.

First, well spray each attachment point down with some spray lubricant and then were going to use a 1/2-inch nylon tube brush, part number 814092, to thoroughly clean the threads out of each one of the well nuts. This will ensure that our hardware will go all the way in nice and easily. Now with each one of our attachment points cleaned out, well go ahead and get an extra set of hands to help us install the hitch. We will use the new bolt and conical toothed washer with the teeth of the washer facing the hitch. Well go ahead and thread each one of the fasteners in hand tight until we have them all in place.

Each process we do here on the drivers side is going to get repeated identically on the passengers side. Now, were ready to go ahead and tighten them down. With all our attachment points tightened down, well go ahead and torque to specifications as indicated in the instructions. Now, with all our fasteners torqued to specifications, that will complete the install of our Curt Hitch, part number 13575, on our 2010 Mazda CX9.

Was able to install in less than 30 minutes, with a good ratchet and socket set. The initial 'getting hitch into position' was a little of a geometry problem. We had to turn it upside down and come into slot around the spare tire just right, kinda tricky, but doable. Great product, would highly recommend thus company. 86506

Mazda CX9 Trailer Hitch Install Installed very easily. A little tight going in but that's not a bad thing. The only real issue I ran into were the two rear passenger side bolts. The hoist mechanism for the spare tire is in the way and prevented the use of a ratchet or torque wrench without a universal joint. Thankfully I have one. 4371

This is for customer service and shipping only. I will review the installation after I get it done after Christmas. The hitch was shipped in a very strong box with internal bracing to protect the contents. The harness and hardware kits were taped to the hitch and arrived in very good condition. Overall service from first question to actual order and delivery were excellent. I will use this company for these thing in the future. thanks for the great service.109678

I'll admit that I was skeptical about installing a hitch by myself. This is the first vehicle I've owned where it was a possibility. It would have been easier if my car was lifted for the installation but I managed just fine. It took about 20 minutes to install. Most of that was tightening the bolts. One bolt in particular gave me grief but that was due to a tighter space on the passenger side. Overall it was pretty easy and I am by no means mechanical in nature.98886

Quality substantial product. Installation was simple. Two keys. One remove the spare tired to get more room to work. Two stand it so the bracket points up. Then you can push it up from behind the exhaust and spin it into place95439

Just wanted to let you know the hitch arrived on time. Opened the package, checked the contents and then began the installtion. Use a jack to raise the vehicle for more room. What a snap for an 84 year old tinkerer. My daughter held one side up while I installed the bolts. Used wrenches to tighten so no space problems for a wratchet. Could not ask for an easier installation.Great Product!91312

Product arrived earlier than anticipated, but an extra set of hands for installation is not recommended -- it is necessary. Have no idea how one would do this alone, but a neighbor and his son assisted in getting this on in about 30 minutes. Quality construction.53335

The hitch arrived in only two days. The etrailer folks are terrific. I ordered two hitches, one for my Jeep (reviewed separately) and one for this Mazda application. The Jeep installation was by far the easiest. Even with my son helping out, we had difficulty getting the hitch past the heat shields on each side and into position. In fact, we could not get it in with the car wheels on the ground. We finally backed it up on ramps (raising it 12-15") which gave us enough clearance to slide the hitch in. With more patience (which we didn't have) we may have been able to do it from the ground, but I'm not so sure you won't need some kind of way to raise the back end. The Mazda had factory welded nuts in place, so it was easy after that. Eventually, a good result. 53226

The Curt Hitch fit without problems. No need to remove the spare tire or cut the heat shields as some have suggested. All bolts went in without problem is you left the bolts loose until all bolts were started. A little difficult to torque the bolts due to lack of sufficient space... but a articulated adaptor solved that issue. Total install time: 40 minutes. Ill try to get some pictures taken if I get time this week.47658

I rarely respond to these customer surveys, but I have been overly impressed with the customer service and quick deliver of etrailer. Ordered late Saturday, on my porch on Tuesday using standard (free) delivery. Received exactly the hitch I wanted for my CX-9 at the best price on the net. No worries about pulling my bros fishing boat on vacation next week!!! Thanks20985

Very nice trailer hitch. But when I installed I have to keep spare tire with low pressur.

comment by: Abady - 1/25/2014


You should not have to lower the pressure in the tire. You may need to push the spare tire towards the front of the vehicle while raising it into position so that it can clear the cross member of the hitch.

  • What Are the Differences Among the Available Trailer Hitches for a 2010 Mazda CX-9
  • The biggest difference among the available hitches for your 2010 Mazda CX-9 is that the Curt and Valley hitches (13575 and V82592), cannot be used with a weight distribution system. Both the Draw-Tite and Hidden Hitch (87438 and 75531) can be used with a weight distribution system. In terms of how much of the hitch is visible, I know it is a little difficult to see it in the videos. But I can tell you that with all of these hitches, you will be able to see the hitch opening and at least 6

  • Distance from Hitch Pin Hole and Bumper for Curt # 13575 Installed on 2009 Mazda CX-9
  • As you can see by clicking on the provided video link, when we installed the Curt # 13575 on the 2010 CX-9 we found that the hitch pin hole to bumper dimension is 4-3/4 inches. The 2009 model should be similar.

  • Is it Important to Use all of the Installation Bolts When Installing a Curt Hitch
  • It is VERY important that you use all of the included installation hardware when you install the Curt Hitch # 13575 on your vehicle. If the bolts are not wanting to line up I would recommend you loosen all of the installation bolts so that the hitch can be moved around and positioned so that the bolts line up and you can thread the smaller bolts in as well. Once you have all of the bolts started you can begin to tighten them all down to the specified torque rating in the installation instruc

  • Will Trailer Hitch Installation Interfere with Advanced Keyless Entry on a 2013 Mazda CX-9
  • If I understand the Mazda advanced keyless entry system correctly for the 2013 CX-9, the antenna is built into the rear glass. Installation of a trailer hitch should not have any affect on its use or range. I know that Mazda offers a trailer hitch as an option and makes no mention of the OEM hitch interfering with the antenna. If you plan to use a trailer hitch for towing make sure that the CX-9 you get or have has the towing prep package which includes a heavy duty transmission cooler and a
