Nissan Murano Questions

  • As long as the towing capacity of the vehicle is not exceeded and the hitch is installed properly, according to the hitch manufacturers instructions, there should be no adverse warranty implications from installing a hitch. The # 87486 Class III hitch you mentioned is manufactured by Hidden Hitch, a very respected hitch manufacturer. I have provided you with a side-by-side photo showing both the Curt # 13577 and the Hidden Hitch model installed on a 2012 Murano. As you can...

  • First, I would say if there is any question on the road worthiness of the trailer, take the steps to correct it. Better safe than sorry. Some trailers have wheels that are hub-centric, the wheel is centered on the hub using the center pilot holes. Other trailers have wheels that are lug-centric, the wheel is centered on when you tighten down the lug nuts. To determine which one you have on your trailer, take a look at how the wheel attaches to the hub. If it uses wheel bolts,...

  • I have a few recommendations for you, however, there is a risk of any type of fabric or plastic material being damaged on a cargo carrier with vehicles that have exhaust pipes exiting straight back like your 2007 Nissan Murano. If a hitch mounted cargo carrier option works best for your needs, I would recommend choosing a cargo carrier that offers the most clearance between the exhaust tips and the carrier. The Pro Series 24 x 60 Cargo Carrier, # 63153, that you referenced...

  • First I suggest you test the output from the 4-pole flat connector to verify normal operation of the module. You can use a circuit tester like the Quickee #3808 or # 40376 to do this testing. Disconnect your trailer, ground the tester to the vehicle, and test each pin one at a time. The pin for the yellow wire should carry an intermittent (blinking) left turn signal when the Murano left turn signal is engaged. The green should carry an intermittent right turn signal when it...

  • We carry numerous transmission coolers that are recommended for your 1994 Chevy C/K 1500. The determining factor on which is the best for your particular truck is the size engine it has and how much space there is to mount it in the location you want. I have included a link to the available coolers below. Each cooler comes with the necessary fittings for installation. We also carry various other fittings separately, should you need additional parts when installing the cooler....

  • First, the pros and cons of each type of rack: hanging versus platform. Pros for Hanging: Lighter weight Easier to store Easier to install/remove Less extension from back of vehicle Cons for Hanging: Not compatible with all bike styles unless using bike adapter bar Can be difficult to load multiple bikes because of spacing Have to lift bikes higher Bikes can move if no anti-sway cradles Pros for Platform: Accept many different bike styles Don't have to lift...

  • Class-III hitches are the only hitches that can be offered on the 2011 Nissan Murano. The 2 recommended are Hidden Hitch # 87486 and Draw-Tite # 75647. Both using 2-inch hitch opening. In addition, these two hitches cross tubes are concealed. See picture to the right. If you plan on doing any towing I recommend etrailer ball mount kit # 989900 and wiring kit # 55571. I included a couple videos for you as well. If you have a Nissan Murano Cross Cabriolet the hitch recommended...

  • The Curt T-Connector Vehicle Wiring Harness, part # C56105, is a wiring harness for a 2006 to 2007 Nissan Murano. If you do not have a 4-Pole flat connector on your Murano this harness will give you a 4-Pole flat trailer connector on the back of your Murano. If you already have a 4-Pole on your vehicle you will not need this part and can skip the next paragraph. The Curt wiring harness will plug into existing sockets on the vehicles wiring harness, located under the trunk liner...

  • The only hitch I can recommend for your 2014 Nissan Murano Cross Cabriolet is the Curt Hitch part # 13577 at this time it is the only hitch we carry that is confirmed to fit the Cross Cabriolet model Muranos. I know its not as aesthetically appealing as you want, but it would do an excellent job towing your jet ski and would be less visible than you would think as most would not notice it there. We've installed this hitch a few times on Muranos and found the installation process...

  • The Hidden Hitch Class III 2 Inch Hitch, part # 87486, for your 2009 Nissan Murano comes with four M12 x 1.25 x 30mm hex bolts and one M10 x 1.25 x 30mm hex bolt.

I am including the installation instructions that will list the torque specifications for the Hidden Hitch.

  • The Hidden Hitch # 87679 and Draw-Tite # 75952 hitches are manufactured by the same parent company, Cequent Performance Products, other than the name on the sticker, the hitches are identical. Same weight rating, appearance, build quality and installation procedure. The Curt # C13205 has a warranty stipulation that requires a stabilizing strap like # 18050 be used for non-trailer loads (like bike racks and cargo carriers.) Not only is this an extra expense, but not all vehicles...

  • The Hidden Hitch Trailer Hitch # 87679 that you referenced is a new hitch that has been confirmed to fit your 2015 Nissan Murano. It does not fit older models of the Murano, only the 2015. I confirmed this by checking with Hidden Hitch. The Hidden Hitch that fits the older Muranos is actually part # 87486. If you plan on doing some towing you might be interested in etrailer ball mount kit # 989900. It comes with 2 ball mounts; one with a 3/4 inch rise or 2 inch drop and...

  • If you can get the vehicle up on a jack and jack stands it will make the installation a lot easier. Also, having an assistant will make getting the hitch into position a lot easier. Here at our facility we have vehicle lifts that make installation much easier for our installers and they would agree that the more space you have available the better. I have included a link to a video showing a typical installation for you that you can use as a guide when you install the hitch on...

  • There are no heavy duty weight distribution heads available with two friction sway control ball mounts. If you need two friction sway controls you would be much better off to upgrade to the Dual Cam High Performance Sway Control, item # RP26002. This sway control system will work with the Reese Heavy Duty Round Bar Weight Distribution System, as long as the bars have the curved ends. If you need a friction sway control added to your trailer you may want to check your trailer...

  • As long as you have a hitch installed on your 2015 Nissan Murano like the part # 87679 the Swagman XTC2 part # S64670 that you referenced would fit and work well. If you are looking for the nicest Swagman rack the Semi 4.0 part # S64696 would be my recommendation. This rack is also a platform bike rack, but since it only contacts the bike at the tires it would be considered a nicer rack. This style of attachment is great for carbon framed bike or ones with expensive finishes...

  • The item you selected, Thule Raceway 2 Bike Carrier Trunk Mount, item # TH9001PRO, is compatible with your 2005 Nissan Murano. This would be a good option for a bike rack for its ease of installation and the featured anti-sway cradles. The other trunk mount bike racks from Thule that are compatible with your vehicle, include: Archway 2, part # TH9009XT Passage 2, part # TH910XT If you plan to carry womens, childrens or alternative frame bicycles, I would recommend using...

  • Pretty much any platform style bike rack that folds up is going to block a back up camera. But there might be a model that might work for you. Take a look at the Saris Thelma, # SA4229B. This rack is compact to start with so the likelihood of it blocking a back up camera is minimal. Take a look at the video I have linked for this bike rack. I don't think the Thule T2 is going to be a good option. It is a large rack with a lot of material that could block the back up camera....

  • The Rola Bike Rack part # 59400 will fit and work well in the Hidden Hitch part # 87486 that you have installed on your 2014 Nissan Murano. I attached a review video for this lock for you to check out as well.

  • The Hidden Hitch Trailer Hitch, # 87486, for the 2010 Nissan Murano does not come with a 4-Way trailer connector mounting bracket. However, the recommended trailer wiring is the T-One Connector w/Upgraded Circuit Protected ModuLite, # 118653. For this harness, we do have several mounting bracket options. I recommend the 4 and 5-Flat Trailer Connector Mounting Box, # 18145, which will keep the 4-Way protected when not in use. To complete your towing set up, the recommended ball...

  • For the interior lights there is usually a switch that will let you select what the light does including on with doors open, on with the button pushed only, or completely off. That would take care of that light. The dash lights are a different story. Short of pulling the fuse(s) related to the lights or disconnecting the battery there really isn't an easy way to shut them off.
