Nissan Altima Questions

  • Installation of a Transmission cooler, like the Derale Series 8000 Plate-Fin Transmission Cooler # D13503, to cool the constant variable transmission fluid in the transmission on your 2013 Nissan Altima would be a good choice, especially if you are towing. A transmission cooler will help prolong the life of the transmission and will not cause any damage, as long as it is properly installed inline on the transmission return line. Testing has shown that for every 20 degrees...

  • There are quite a few differences. The ones you can see easily on the outside are the display and control buttons. The P2, part # 90885, uses a rotary lever on the underside for a manual over ride where as the Primus uses the older slide design that some people have problems with the slide sticking depending on how they grip and operate the slide. The P2 has several buttons on the face for adjusting settings and navigating through the menus. The Primus IQ uses a dial and one...

  • As you can see in the photo I assembled from captured images from the install video, the mounting flange of the hitch provides as much heat protection as the heat shield that is removed and discarded. The steel of the hitch mounting flange is much thicker than that of the heat shield. I checked with my contact in the engineering department at Curt Manufacturing, who assured me that the mounting flange will offer enough heat protection that a fire hazard will not exist.

  • As far as quality, all of the hitches for the 2013 Nissan Altima sedan are on par with each other. The Hidden Hitch and Draw-Tite hitches (# 60873 and # 24796) undergo additional voluntary testing procedures that other hitches do not. But all of the hitches including Curt hitch # 11352 are built to meet or exceed required industry strength standards. The main difference is that the Curt hitch requires the use of a stabilization strap, # 18050, for any non-trailer load such...

  • Yakima bike racks, including the DoubleDown # Y02424 you referred to are not compatible with Class I hitches, like the Draw-Tite # 24796 your Altima would use. Additionally, due to the low tongue weight capacity of the Class I hitch, both the bike rack and the hitch manufacturers both agree that no more than two bikes should be carried on a Class I hitch. Adding additional bikes would place too much weight too far away from the receiver opening, and would exert enough leverage...

  • If the Saris bike rack does have a threaded hitch pin hole, then only a Saris threaded hitch pin will fit. Each company makes their threaded parts unique so only their parts are compatible with each other. If the Saris rack does not have a threaded hitch pin, you could most likely use the Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock with Integrated Cable, # 1470DAT. It will fit hitch pin hole diameters of 1/2 inches and 5/8 inches. I have included a link to a video review for you.

  • I do have some hitch options available for your 2010 Nissan Altima that do not require the removal of the heat shields, but the CURT trailer hitch # 11352, does require the heat shields to be removed. Both the Hidden Hitch # 60873 and the Draw-Tite hitch # 24796 will allow you to retain the heat shields on your 2010 Nissan Altima. Both hitches are Class I 1-1/4 models, and they both have the same tongue weight and towing capacity of the CURT hitch # 11352 that you selected....

  • Yes, the SuperJoe series of bike racks, like the Super Joe Pro 2 Bike Rack, # Y02629 will fit on your 2008 Nissan Altima 4 door sedan, see photo link. If you will be carrying bikes with out a horizontal top frame to mount on the cradle arms, an adapter is recommended. We have a video showing the Yakima Tube Top Bike Adapter Bar, # Y02531, which would work great with the SuperJoe bike racks.

  • Draw-Tite trailer hitch # 24801 will fit your 2012 Nissan Altima Coupe. I have linked the instructions for you. This is a Class I trailer hitch with a 1-1/4 inch receiver. You will need to make sure the bike rack you have is Class I compatible. Class I trailer hitches are limited to carrying 2 bikes maximum.

  • The Weather Tech wind deflector, # WT89159, uses what they call a MagiClip fastener. The screws that you see go through the top of the deflector and into the hole in the clip. Moisture is sealed out with the round washers. The clips are actually contoured to fit your 2012 Nissan Altima and they are kind of S shaped. They fit in the metal lip of the sunroof opening. There is no tape or drilling required.

  • There is no drilling required to install the Hidden Hitch trailer hitch # 60877 for the 2013 Nissan Altima Coupe. However, access holes will need to be enlarged in order to get the hardware in place.

I have linked the instructions that you can show the dealer to help make that decision. If you get the go ahead to install...

For the sedan model, temporary removal of the muffler is required. I have included a link to a video and to the instructions for this hitch as well. For trailer wiring, you will...

  • It does sound like the tongue weight was not high enough. If a trailer is empty, you can experience some of these symptoms. The tongue weight of a trailer should be between 10 and 15 percent of the gross trailer weight. For example if your trailer was fully loaded and weight 7,000 pounds, the tongue weight should be between 700 and 1,050 pounds. Proper loading of the trailer will also help. Heavier items should be centered at the bottom and you would not want one side carrying...

  • The video you refer to was placed on that product page in error. It refers to a different part number installed on the sedan, not the coupe. The install would not involve drilling down through the trunk. The hole closest to the front of the vehicle would need to be enlarged enough so that the block washer and carriage bolt can be fished into the frame member. This hole can be enlarged by drilling a small adjacent hole on either side of the existing hole and using a cold...

  • In order to use a hanging rack like the Thule Raceway 2, # TH9001PRO, with a step through bike, you will need to use the Bike Adapter Bar, # TH982XT. The adapter clamps to the bar beneath the handle bars and the seat post to create a cross bar so that you could then hang it on the rack. I have included a link to a video demonstration of the adapter.

  • The Swagman XC Bike Rack, # S64650, should be able to hold a townie bike, but to be absolutely certain that this bike rack will support your bike, we will want to take a few measurements on your bike. First, this bike rack can support a wheel base up to 51-1/2 inches long. To find the wheel base on your bike, measure from the center of the front wheel axle to the center of the rear wheel axle. Next, you will want to find the width of your tires. The wheel loops on this rack...

  • Basically, the designs of each of the hitches for the 2011 Nissan Altima are dependent upon the mounting locations for a hitch. Because of this, the hitch options are all very similar and no one is more hidden than the others. On all of the hitch options, the cross tubing will be visible below the rear fascia. For the sedan, I recommend the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch, # 24796. This is the most popular hitch for your 2011 Nissan Altima. I have included a link to the installation...
