2009 Nissan Rogue Trailer Hitch


How to Install a Trailer Hitch on a 2009 Nissan Rogue


Today on this 2009 Nissan Rogue, we will be installing Hidden Hitch part number 87457. This installation will also apply to the Draw-Tite part number 75606. Looking underneath the vehicle at the driver side frame rail, you can see here that there are three existing weld nuts in the bottom of the frame. Into these weld nuts we will be using the 12 mm bolts along with the conical tooth washers. That setup will be the same over here on the passenger side. But you will note that we have, not only an existing tow hook that is taking up the first two holes at the rear of the frame, but we also have an existing bolt here at the forward side as well. So the tow hook which consists of two bolts here at the bottom of the frame and two bolts on the side of the frame will need to be removed before we can get started. And then we will also want to remove the bolt at the more forward side as well.

With all the bolts and the tow hook removed we can go ahead and put the hitch up into place. And again, we will be using the new hardware that is provided with the hitch installation kit to hang the hitch up in place. With all the bolts in place you can go ahead and torque them down. You want to check with the directions to verify the appropriate torque rating for each individual bolt. Now that we have all the bolts torqued down our installation is complete. This will conclude the installation of hitch part number 87457.
