Today on our 2013 Nissan Pathfinder, well be installing the Curt Hitch, part number C13126. This is what our hitch will look like once its installed. Next, well go ahead and give you a couple measurements to assist your selecting accessories for your new hitch.From the center of the hitch pin hole to the outer most part of the bumper is 2 and three-quarter inches. From the top of the inside of the receiver tube opening to the ground is 14 inches. This will assist you selecting accessory such as a ball mount, bike rack, or cargo carrier.Now lets go ahead with installation. Note, before we begin the install, weve already gone ahead and lowered and removed the spare tire for the ease in installation of the hitch.

Before we begin our installation, well go ahead and point out the attachment points. Therell be a total of six attachment points for this hitch, three on each side. These attachment points will be well nuts built into the frame by the manufacturer.We can go ahead and remove the manufacturers tow hook. Our next step will be to remove the fascia L bracket. Theres a pushpin fastener and 10 mm bolt for each.

Hang on to both the hardware and the L bracket as we will be reinstalling them. As we raise our hitch into position, put the passenger side up over the exhaust and then bring the drivers side up into position.As we put the hitch into position, youll see where it makes contact with the rear fascia. Well hold it in position and then take a paint marker and mark the area that will need to be trimmed.With the width marked out, well need to go ahead and mark out the length which is provided in the instructions. Go ahead make a mark, draw our lines and then using a rotary zip tool, we'll cut out this section. Now with the fascia cut out, were ready to go ahead and install the hitch.

The fasteners we'll be using for this hitch will be the new 12 mm bolts along with the half inch conical tooth washer, the teeth of the washer facing the hitch. Once again, we'll use an extra set of hands to help us hold the hitch while we install the fasteners. We'll install all six fasteners finger tight to secure the hitch to the vehicle.Next we'll go ahead and tighten down our fasteners and then torque to specifications as indicated in the instructions. Now with the hitch secured and torqued to specifications, we can go ahead and reinstall the fascia L bracket. Now with the L brackets re-secured, thatll complete the install of Curt hitch part number C13126 on our 2013 Nissan Pathfinder..

I ordered this trailer hitch for my 2014 Nissan Pathfinder… I watched the video that made, and decided it looked like a project I could try to do myself. I am not a mechanic, but I am decently handy with tools. I placed my order knowing that I needed the hitch to arrive the next week so that I could do the installation when I had some time off from work. The day after I placed the order I got a very pleasant phone message and email from a girl named Carla from She told me that One of the products that I ordered was not in stock. She told me I had three options. One option was to wait two weeks until the backordered product was available, another option was to split my orders shipping apart but pay extra for that, or a third option was to buy a different Hitch ball assembly that Carla had found to be almost the same, but in stock. This was one of the best online shopping experiences I have had, because of the personal touch from the cute girl with the southern accent that called me to talk about the options that were available due to a problem with my order. I love the fact that she was so personal, relatable, and not automated. I love the fact that she gave me three great options instead of just some lousy automated response that would tell me I'm shafted. I love the fact that the girl who called me was pleasant, kind, and located in the company, in the state, in the country, where I was buying the product. She was so helpful. She left a voicemail for me, she called me again, and she emailed me to be sure I got the message. This is what I call great service. This experience of service is what will make me want to buy from this again!!! The hitch arrived in good condition, although the box was broken and the large metal sides of the hitch were protruding through the box by about 6 inches. Nevertheless, the product was not damaged at all. All the other products were also in the large box, in a smaller box. I was able to follow the instructions on the instructional video that was provided, and I was able to put the hitch on my pathfinder by myself! This took a little bit of ingenuity, because I don't have a lift and I was alone. So I had to prop up the heavy-metal hitch assembly on some crates and shimmy it up with some planks of wood to just the right height so that I could boat in the other side. It worked! This particular hitch seems perfectly designed, and fit perfectly on the 2014 Nissan Pathfinder that I have. I am extremely satisfied. I am extremely satisfied with my purchase from a 189264

I really love this hitch that I bought for my nissan pathfinder 2013 and it fits perfect . The only thing that I did not like about it was that it had a little scratch on it but since I paid about 150 for it I would expect some good looking in it . But it's not like its not gonna get scratched under my car with all of the rocks and dust hitting it . But other then that I'm realy happy with it pulling my 3 ATVs on it . Other then the scratch I'm really happy with it . Thank you etrailer. 105906

I received the trailer hitch in a reasonable amount of time and the installation time was very accurate. Took about an hour and a half without using power tools and no lift or help. Would recommend this company for any one seriously thinking about installing a trailer hitch. 143923

You know that that was the fastest order I have ever received in. Next day was the best and the only problem was the carrier doesn't care what a package looks like when they deliver anything. The box was all busted open and looked real nasty but everything was in there so I was so happy. I got it installed and everything went just the why everything should. The quality of the hitch is top notch and the price was ever better. 123407

Great quality product. Easy to install. Have an issue with the plastic push pins that secure the rear fascia to the L brackets hitting the bottom of the hitch tube not allowing the push pins to fully seat properly. This can be seen at 2:19 in the install video. Price was fantastic and it shipped same day, received it just two days later (in Ohio). Thank you! 81758

Received the trailer in few days after canceled the other model. The part came with few deep scratches and have to spent $10 for touch up paint.

Great fit, good quality and ease of installment. I saw some people said they did it in 2 hrs, I did it in half the time with just me by myself. All I used was a socket wrench, utility knife and a screw driver to pop out the plastic clips. I got it without tax and free shipping, so overall a great deal. 194348

The hitch fits the 2013 nissan pathfinder without cutting the fascia. 85460


No cutting? does it warp the fascia from touching, or creates vibrations do you feel or hear inside the cabin?

Ask the Experts about this Curt Trailer Hitch
Do you have a question about this Trailer Hitch?

  • Is there a Wiring Mounting Bracket on the Curt # C13126 Trailer Hitch for a 2013 Nissan Pathfinder
  • Due to the profile of the Curt Class III trailer hitch # C13126, most of the hitch crossbar is recessed under the rear fascia of a 2013 Nissan Pathfinder. Therefore this hitch does not include a mounting location for trailer wiring. Since there is limited space on the hitch crossbar, a mounting bracket is not included on the hitch. Additionally, the rear fascia has to be trimmed to complete the installation of this hitch. I have included a photos showing this hitch installed on a 2013...

  • Does the Rear Fascia of a 2013 Infiniti JX35 Need to be Trimmed to Install a Curt Hitch # C13126
  • Yes, you will need to modify the rear bumper of your 2013 Infiniti JX35 to install the Curt Trailer Hitch # C13126. If you check out the installation instructions that I attached for this hitch you will see that the vehicle they use in the instructions is a JX35 like yours and will require the bumper to be modified. The hitch opening will hang right below the bumper, but the majority of the hitch will be out of plain sight.

  • We can provide you with all of the parts that you will need to install a trailer hitch, 7-way trailer connector and a brake controller on your 2013 Infiniti JX35, however none of the items will work with pre-wired circuits or plug-in ports on your vehicle. I spoke with my contact at Tekonsha and they have not guarantee that the Plug-In Wiring Adapter, # 3050-P will work on your vehicle. I also spoke with my local Infiniti dealer and they told me that the JX35 does not come with a port under...

  • Recommended Wiring Harness for 2014 Infiniti QX60 with Curt Trailer Hitch
  • I spoke with my contact at Curt and he said you will first need to determine which wiring system your 2014 Infiniti QX60 has, a 2-wire, 3-wire, STT or ST system. If the wiring system sends the stop/turn signal along one wire, while the tail signal is separate then you have the two-wire system. You will want to use the Upgraded Heavy Duty Modulite Circuit Protected Vehicle Wiring Harness with Install Kit # 119190KIT. If the stop, tail and turn signals are all sent on separate wires,...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch for 2013 Nissan Pathfinder
  • Given the choice between the Hidden Hitch, the Draw-Tite and the Curt receiver hitch for your 2013 Pathfinder, I'd lean more toward the Curt hitch for the following reasons: -The Curt # C13126 has a capacity that's slightly higher than the other two hitches. You'll be limited by the capacity of the vehicle, but the higher capacities indicate that the hitch might be a bit more durable in the long run. -When installed, the cross tube of the Curt hitch will be entirely concealed behind...

If you are planning on towing I recommend our etrailer Ball Mount Kit, part # 989900. This kit includes 2 ball mounts, a 1-7/8 inch ball, a 2 inch ball and the pin and clip as well as a nice bag to carry everything.

  • Installing Trailer Connector on 2013 Nissan Pathfinder
  • According to my research, the 2013 Pathfinder should already have a 7-way trailer connector at the rear. If not, look under the vehicle for the trailer wiring. There should be a wire harness with a US car connector on the end, like what's shown in the provided photo. The connector will probably have a protective cap on the end. The harness you found would plug into the trailer connector, part # HM40975. The connector is not a vehicle-specific item, so you'll need to devise a way of...

This hitch does also fit the 2013 JX35 and the Nissan Pathfinder. The other hitches for the JX35 are not confirmed to fit the 2014 QX60 so you cannot use # 87625.

This hitch also fits the Nissan Pathfinder so I have included a link to a video showing installation and what it will look like when installed.

The distance from center to center on the mounting holes closest to the receiver opening is 48.964 inches and 46.965 inches for the holes furthest from the receiver opening.

  • Does Trailer Hitch Hardware Have to be Torqued to the Specifications in the Instructions
  • The hitch is rated for its given capacity when installed according to the installation instructions and that includes the torque ratings specified in the instructions. If they are too tight you can damage the hitch and vehicle frame. Not tight enough and the hitch could come loose. If you do not have a torque wrench many auto parts stores will loan out tools. I recommend calling around to a few places to see if they have a tool loan program so you can torque down the hitch hardware...

The area that needs to be trimmed on your 2013 Infiniti JX35 is 2-1/2 inches by 1-3/8 inches. There is a diagram in the instructions which I have linked for you to the right.

There is only one trunk mount rack I recommend on a vehicle with a spoiler and that is the Hollywood Racks Over-the-Top rack # HRF2.

  • Can I Use Weight Distribution System with 2014 Infiniti QX60
  • I would contact your Infiniti dealer to make sure your hitch is rated for weight distribution, but since it is a class III hitch most likely it is. Curt does makes a class III trailer hitch for the 2014 Infiniti QX60 that is rated for weight distribution. Curt hitch # C13126 has a maximum gross trailer weight of 4000 lbs and a maximum gross trailer weight of 5000 lbs when used with weight distribution.

  • Whether you'll need to modify the bumper fascia or not will depend on which hitch you choose.

According to the installation instructions, a small (1-3/8 x 2-1/2 inch) area of the underside of the bumper fascia would need to be trimmed away.

  • Solution for Carrying Cargo with a 2013 Nissan Pathfinder with a Naked Roof
  • I checked with all of our roof rack manufacturers and they do not list any thing for your 2013 Nissan Pathfinder with a naked roof. I suspect maybe it's because you have a large sunroof or something else that is preventing the roof from being able to carry any weight or install a rack.
