Video Transcript for Trailer Hitch Installation - 2014 Nissan Murano - Curt

Today on our 2014 Nissan Murano, we're going to be installing the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver, part number 13577. Now here's what our hitch looks like on our vehicle. Now we'll go ahead and give you a couple of measurements in helping you choose some accessories for your hitch, such as a ball mount, a bicycle rack, or a cargo carrier. From the top of the opening in the receiver to the ground we have approximately fifteen and a quarter inches. From the center of the hitch pinhole to the outermost edge of the bumper, we have approximately four and a half inches. Now let's go ahead and install our hitch. Now before we begin our installation, we're going to need install a safety strap up underneath the exhaust.

Next we're going to need to remove four rubber exhaust hangers in order to lower our exhaust down to give ourself 00:00:53 a little more working room. We'll go ahead and begin over here on the driver's side and point out the exhaust hangers that we need to remove. There's one here, one here, one right here and then over here on the passenger's side there's one more, right here. In order to remove the rubber exhaust hangers, we're going to use a little bit of spray lubricant and a large pry bar. Now with the rubber exhaust hangers removed, we'll go ahead and use our safety strap to lower the exhaust down some. Next we're going to need to remove the tow hook that's located over on the driver's side.

To remove the tow hook, we'll need to take out four bolts. There's one here, one here, here, and here. Next let's go ahead and point out our mounting locations that we'll be using to install our hitch. Now there will be a total of five mounting locations, three over here on the driver's side and two on the passenger's side with one here, here, and right here. Now we'll move over to the passenger's side, the locations are here and here. Now before you try and install your hitch, it's a good idea to take a little bit of spray lubricant and a nylon tube brush to clean out each of the threads on the existing weld nuts. The nylon tube brush we'll be using is part number 814092. You want to go ahead and repeat this same process at all five mounting locations.

It's a good idea once you've clean out the threads to make sure that the bolt threads in easily. Next let's go over the hardware that we'll be using to secure our hitch to the vehicle. For the two rear mounting locations on the driver's side as well as both mounting locations on the passenger's side, we'll be using a twelve millimeter bolt and a half inch conical tooth washer making sure that the teeth on the washer face toward the hitch when installed. Now for the forward mounting location right here in on the driver's side we will be reusing one of the four bolts that we removed taking the tow hook off. Now it's a good idea to get an extra set of hands to help you raise the hitch up into position. With the hitch raised up into position, we'll go ahead and install our hardware loosely.

Followed by making sure that the hitch is centered on the vehicle. Once we know the hitch is centered, we can go ahead and tighten down the hardware and torque it to the manufacturer's specification. Now that we have our hitch torqued down, we can go ahead and raise our exhaust back up into position and re-install the four rubber exhaust hangers. Now a quick tech 00:04:57 tip, the passenger's side rubber exhaust hanger, now we took it off this hanger here when we removed it but it will help if you take it off the hanger that stayed on the body like this and then re-install it on to the muffler first, then you can swing it up and onto the inaudible 00:05:23 just like that. It will go on much easier that way. We'll then go ahead and continue putting the rest of our exhaust hangers back on. With our rubber exhaust hangers back up into position we can go ahead and remove our safety strap and that will do it for the installation of the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver, part number 13577 on our 2014 Nissan Murano. .

The Curt trailer hitch fits and looks great on my 2009 Nissan Murano. The unexpected problem with the install is 3 of the 4 needed bolt holes in the frame of the vehicle were corroded from road exposure, preventing threading of the bolts. To correct this, I purchased a 12mm -1.25 metric tap and T-handle tap wrench (from Menards for around $15 total). I did have to lower the exhaust assembly (per the instructions) to gain access to use the tap. With use of a spray lubricant, the tap cleaned out the threads without much difficulty. Just get it straight when you start and it works well. Took a total of about 90 minutes in all with the failed attempts to insert the bolts on the first try, then tapping of the 3 bolt holes. 144622

Watch the movie! When the hitch receiver arrived the heavy guage cardboard box was slightly damaged (and I was concerned that the bolts may have gone missing: not to worry, they were in a small plastic bag heavily taped inside the hitch receiver pocket. This installation can be done without jacking up the vehicle, but it could take longer than 40 minutes, although it is not a difficult job. Definitely lubricate the exhaust and muffler supports. The only problem I had was removing the tow point: the nuts were extremely tight and an air wrench was required. The hitch receiver is well made and finished, and it fit perfectly. I had to use an extension between the socket and the torque wrench on the driver side, but not on the passenger side: this may have been due to not lowering the muffler far enough. A 5/8" and a 19mm socket are required. Suggest when re-installing the muffler to hook up the exhaust pipe rubber hanger first before the hangers attached to the muffler. 104074

Outstanding product, easy to install, worked as advertised. The hitch bolted right in and I did not have to drop the exhaust...very straight forward process. I also ordered and installed the wiring harness and 4 pin bracket, no issues; instructions were precise and on target. Great product and great service. 96840

I would definitely order from etrailer again as the communication was excellent and the hitch arrived timely and with all hardware needed to install. It's a nice clean but beefy looking hitch. My brother and I installed this in little over 1/2 an hour in my driveway. We backed the car onto car ramps to raise the back some (easier to get underneath). Between having an extra set of hands to help, the car ramps to raise the vehicle some, and having a nice long socket extension (probably around 12"), we didn't even have to remove the exhaust from it's hangers. I wish everything went on like this hitch did (like it's supposed to.....). Thanks etrailer! 20810

I received the trailer hitch 4 days after I ordered it. Already pleased out of the gate by having it arrive so I could install it this weekend. The installation went very well as advertised. The only pain as I expected it would be was putting the car trim pieces back into place (always easier to disassemble then to reassemble so no surprise) after I completed the electrical for the lights. The video of the process was a big help. I could not be more pleased with the price and the quality. I think you guys have it figured out. 12260

Excellent communication from the moment the transaction was placed through etrailer. They emailed me when the hitch was shipped and a follow up when delivery was completed. The hitch itself is awesome looking and well built. I have to admit I was a bit reluctant on installing the hitch myself, but after watching the online demonstration of the installation for the second time I was ready to give it a try. Very seldom do thing work for me without a hitch, no pun indented, but this time it did. Clean easy installation..... 19049

Everything you said it was. The only problem I had was I could not get the muffler mount off the left rear side . the hitch still went smooth and easy. the same with the wiring harness . I still have to put in the 4 pole to 7 pole adapter I will do that as soon as the long mount gets here . I put mine in without lifting the car, I'am 68 if I can any one should be able to do it or you should not be towing. Will send pictures ween I get long mount installed.

I just instaled the Curt trailer hitch I got from etrailer on my 2010 Nissan Marano. I was able to do it laying on my back in my driveway because the fit was perfect. I liked the Curt hitch best because I like the round tube design better than the square tube ones. Only took me about an hour to do, piece of cake. Just waiting now for the hitch mounted bicyle rack to come, than I'll be good to go. Thanks etrailer, I'll be back. 10924

The only thing keeping this from a full “Excellent” score is that there were a few minor chips in the finish on the hitch receiver. But other than that, everything fit just like in the video and there were no surprises during installation. I really appreciate the “how to” videos and being able save that money on the installation by doing it myself. Now we can spend the savings on other cool things on the website. 50700

Received the hitch on time for our 2013 Murano. My initial concern was if I could install the hitch without lowering the muffler system. My concern was unwarranted. I was able to install the hitch by myself and it only took me approx 1 hour. I located the hitch in place and blocked it in the install position so i could bolt it up with my hands free. I would recommend the product and company to anyone 133682

Hitch was awesome and so easy to install thanks to your videos online. Made quick work of it and didn't even need to lower the exhaust. Your site was perfect and so easy to use. Will be recommending it to anyone I know who is even remotely curious about getting a hitch or wiring put on their vehicle. Also watched your wiring videos as well and that made a scary job so easy. Thanks again. 53479

When this hitch arrived, my reaction was "This will never fit on my car". But I figured I'd give it a try. Literally 15 minutes later it was installed on my car...it fits perfectly, looks great, and was easier to install than the directions indicated -- I didn't have to lower the muffler. Thanks -- I will never hesitate to recommend etrailer to anyone. 126633

We were very pleased with the quality of the hitch including the prompt delivery and first-rate packaging. The hitch was installed by our local tire dealer for $120; all went smoothly. The installed product saved us more than $400 compared to a dealer installation for our 2009 Nissan Murano. We highly recommend.... 103694
