Today on this 2007 Nissan Murano we will be installing hitch part number 13571 from Curt. Okay we are underneath the vehicle, before we can get started we need to go ahead and lower the exhaust off its hangers and get it out of the way. There are four main hangers that we are going to need to lower the exhaust off of. Over here on the drivers side we have two, these two can simply be pulled off their hangers. It may help to use a spray lubricant like WD-40, to spray the studs down first, it will make the removal way easier.
On the passenger side we will be removing it off the hanger here on the outboard side of the frame rail. This one will need to be unbolted. And then here at the middle of the exhaust on the forward side we need to remove it off of this fourth hanger, which again can be unbolted from the frame. Before we do so we need to make sure we support the exhaust tube with a strap or a bungee cord, something that will support the beam. Because once we remove this final hanger the exhaust will want to fall down and it could damage your system if not properly supported.
Okay now that we have the exhaust lowered we can go ahead and remove the tow hook from the drivers side frame rail. There are four bolts holding the tow hook onto the frame. Now that we have the tow hook removed I am going to go ahead and point out the three attaching points here on the drivers side. And over here on the passenger side we are just going to be using the two rear most weld nuts here at the bottom of the frame. Okay with those pointed out we can go ahead and put the hitch up in position. We are going to be using the 12 millimeter bolts along with the conical tooth washers. And for the forward most attaching point here on the drivers side we will be using the 10 millimeter bolt with the conical tooth washer. And now that we have all the bolts in place we can go ahead and torque the bolts down. You want to check with the directions to verify the appropriate torque rating for each individual bolt. And with all the bolts torqued down we just want to put the exhaust back up on its hangers and our installation will be complete. And that will conclude the installation of hitch part number 13571 on a 2007 Nissan Murano.
