Video Transcript for Trailer Hitch Installation - 2013 Nissan Murano - Curt

Today on our 2013 Nissan Murano we'll be installing the Curt Hitch, part number 13577. This is what our hitch will look like once its installed. Next we'll go ahead and give you a couple of measurements to assist your selecting accessories for your new hitch. From the center of the hitch pin hole to the outermost edge of the bumper is 5 inches. From the top of the receiver tube opening to the ground is 15-1/4 inches. This will assist your selecting accessories such as a ball mount, a bike rack or cargo carrier.

Now let's go ahead with installation. To begin our hitch install we'll first need to lower the exhaust. To safely lower the exhaust we'll put a safety strap underneath it first so once we remove the rubber isolators we can use the safety strap to safely lower the weight of the exhaust. We'll be removing a total of four rubber isolators, one to the passenger side of the muffler, two to the driver's side of the muffler and one just forward of the rear axle. To remove these rubber isolators from the metal hangers we'll spray each one with some spray lubricant and then use a pry bar, pliers or exhaust hanger removal tool.

Now with all the hangers removed we'll go ahead and use the safety strap to safely lower the exhaust. Next we'll need to remove the tow hook on the driver's side. There are a total of four attachments to be removed. Now that we have the tow hook removed we'll save one of the fasteners setting aside the other three fasteners and the tow hook as they will not be reinstalled. The one fastener will be the forward attachment point and forward attachment point hardware for the driver's side.

Out of the four attachment points will be a 12mm bolt with a half inch conical tooth washer with the teeth of the washer facing the hitch. We'll need to make sure that the weld nuts built into the frame by the manufacturer which will be the five attachment points for our hitch are thoroughly cleaned out.To do this we'll use some spray lubricant and a half inch nylon tool brush, part number 814092, keeping in mind that in extreme cases where there's rust, dust, dirt and debris built up it may be necessary to use a thread tap to clean out the weld nuts. Then we'll take one of the new fasteners from our install kit and thread it into the weld nut to make sure it will go nice and smoothly. Here on the driver's side our forward attachment point will be the old attachment point for the tow hook and then the two weld nuts in the frame. On the passenger side we'll just be using the two weld nuts and the frame by the manufacturer.

Now we're ready to go ahead and install the hitch. It's a good idea to get an extra set of hands to help you hold the hitch while you install the fasteners. We'll install each fastener finger tight until we have them all in place. Then once we have all the fasteners in place we'll tighten them down and then torque to specifications as indicated in the instructions. Now with our hitch secured and torqued to specifications we can go ahead and reinstall the exhaust. With our exhaust back in place this will complete the install of the Curt Hitch, part number 13577 on our 2013 Nissan Murano. .

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

Shipping only took some 30 minutes. Exagerated, yes but, quick. Looks great. Only took about 15 minutes to install and 10 of those were carrying the thing to my car. Absolutly unneccesary to drop the muffler.110854

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

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

Top quality product. Great comprehensive and ease of use website. This "Curt" trailer hitch had great installation instructions on the web page. The hitch fit perfectly and the ease of installation was 20 minutes. The "Curt" reputation and "etrailer.com's" prices and web page are state of the art, and delivered on time!103112

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.

This hitch is exactly as advertised - perfect fit! Used penetrating lubricant to prep and clean 2009 Murano frame threads. The Utube videos for installing hitch and wire harness were very helpful. I will be referring my friends to etrailer.com.95268

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

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

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

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

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

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
