Now, as we install the floor liner, we'll notice that the bottom has a special nibs to help hold the floor liner in place, so it won't shift or move around. As you can see, it's custom molded to fit the vehicle's floorboards and the different shapes and contours. With the extended length going up underneath the gas and brake pedal and covering the driver's foot rest, the raised outer edge all the way around, it'll really help contain the dirt, dust, and debris on the liner and away from the vehicle's carpeting.

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 if you will be towing with your vehicle and your vehicle has transmission fluid lines that run to an OEM cooler at the front of the vehicle. These lines could go to a tank mounted cooler in the radiator or to an external cooler in front of the radiator....

  • The recommended 2 inch Euro style ball mount for Curt trailer hitch # C11352 on a 2015 Nissan Altima is # C45572. I went out to the warehouse and pulled one to take some measurements. From the center of the pin hole to the part of the shank where it starts to bend up is 3 inches. This will work because the rear bumper on the Altima tapers upward above the hitch receiver. At 6-1/2 inches out from the center of the hitch pin hole, where the shank starts to bend straight up, it...

  • The two 20 x 48-inch hitch-mount cargo carriers you referenced, Pro Series Hitch Cargo Carrier # 6500 and Curt Hitch Cargo Carrier # C18110, share many features apart from their overall size: each can carry 300-lbs maximum weight (more than your Class I hitch can handle, please note), and each offers rise in the shank (3-3/4-inches for the Curt and 3-inches for the ProSeries). The main differences between them are that the ProSeries features an adjustable platform that can...

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Removing the plastic housing and plastic freespooling lever from the S4000 High Performance trailer winch, # 1040300, is pretty simple, once you have done it once or seen it done. It does not break easily. We have a video showing this procedure on the S5000 winch, which I have attached for you. Basically, before removing the 4 screws, two on top and two on bottom that you mentioned, you will need to rotate the switch up 90 degrees to the plastic housing. Then you will be...

  • To determine if your 2001 Nissan Altima can tow your trailer the first thing you need to do is consult the owners manual of your vehicle. There should be a section on towing that will list if there are restrictions on your vehicle and what capacities it would have. The Draw Tite hitch part # 24690 that you referenced would be the correct hitch to get for your vehicle. This hitch as a 2,000 lb total trailer weight and 200 lb tongue weight capacity. As long as your trailer is...

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • Drilling would only be necessary if there wasn't already a hole or a bolt with which to secure the Yakima Vehicle Anchor Strap Kit # Y04046. But I have a better solution. You can use the Thule Quick Loops, # TH530. You just close the cylinder end under the hood or trunk and leave the strap hanging out. Perfect solution and no drilling necessary!

  • The light output delivered by the Optronics # BUL78CB would be considerably greater than that of a single 1156 single filament bulb. A single 1156 would put out about 32 Candela, while the Optronics # BUL78CB puts out 125 Candela. If you were considering using the # BUL78CB as a back-up lamp, keep in mind that it does not meet DOT specifications as a back-up lamp. This will not present a problem unless your trailer is used commercially. If you need to meet DOT specs, use a...

  • 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.

  • Yes, you can adjust the air in the Firestone Coil-Rite Air Helper Springs, # F4105, to decrease the air pressure when you are not towing. These air springs will be the perfect item to assist the rear suspension on your 2006 Nissan Altima when towing and having a fully loaded vehicle. Once the air springs are installed, you can run the air lines to the location of your choice and adjust the air pressure based on the driving situation. I would recommend that you have your rear...

  • 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. Since you are leasing the vehicle I do not recommend making modifications to the vehicle unless the dealer leasing the vehicle determines it is ok to do so. 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 replacement hardware that is designed for your trailer hitch on a 2013 Nissan Altima, you will need to know the manufacturer and model number of the hitch. You would then go to our website and enter part # RHK. On that product page you would need to enter the part number of the hitch and then from the drop down menu select the hitch manufacturer. Then check the quantity you need and add to cart. The hardware will be assembled into a kit you can use for installation of...

  • I checked an online copy of the owners manual for your 2014 Nissan Altima and in section 9-17 it states not to tow a trailer with the vehicle. Trailer hitches should only be used for accessories such as bike racks or cargo carriers on this vehicle and not for towing a trailer. The Curt trailer hitch # C11352 itself has a capacity of 2,000 pounds gross trailer weight and 200 pounds tongue weight.

  • 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...
