Video Transcript for Trailer Hitch Installation - 2014 Nissan Murano - Curt

Today on our 2014 Nissan Murano, we're going to be installing the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver, part number 13577. Now here's what our hitch looks like on our vehicle. Now we'll go ahead and give you a couple of measurements in helping you choose some accessories for your hitch, such as a ball mount, a bicycle rack, or a cargo carrier. From the top of the opening in the receiver to the ground we have approximately fifteen and a quarter inches. From the center of the hitch pinhole to the outermost edge of the bumper, we have approximately four and a half inches. Now let's go ahead and install our hitch. Now before we begin our installation, we're going to need install a safety strap up underneath the exhaust.

Next we're going to need to remove four rubber exhaust hangers in order to lower our exhaust down to give ourself 00:00:53 a little more working room. We'll go ahead and begin over here on the driver's side and point out the exhaust hangers that we need to remove. There's one here, one here, one right here and then over here on the passenger's side there's one more, right here. In order to remove the rubber exhaust hangers, we're going to use a little bit of spray lubricant and a large pry bar. Now with the rubber exhaust hangers removed, we'll go ahead and use our safety strap to lower the exhaust down some. Next we're going to need to remove the tow hook that's located over on the driver's side.

To remove the tow hook, we'll need to take out four bolts. There's one here, one here, here, and here. Next let's go ahead and point out our mounting locations that we'll be using to install our hitch. Now there will be a total of five mounting locations, three over here on the driver's side and two on the passenger's side with one here, here, and right here. Now we'll move over to the passenger's side, the locations are here and here. Now before you try and install your hitch, it's a good idea to take a little bit of spray lubricant and a nylon tube brush to clean out each of the threads on the existing weld nuts. The nylon tube brush we'll be using is part number 814092. You want to go ahead and repeat this same process at all five mounting locations.

It's a good idea once you've clean out the threads to make sure that the bolt threads in easily. Next let's go over the hardware that we'll be using to secure our hitch to the vehicle. For the two rear mounting locations on the driver's side as well as both mounting locations on the passenger's side, we'll be using a twelve millimeter bolt and a half inch conical tooth washer making sure that the teeth on the washer face toward the hitch when installed. Now for the forward mounting location right here in on the driver's side we will be reusing one of the four bolts that we removed taking the tow hook off. Now it's a good idea to get an extra set of hands to help you raise the hitch up into position. With the hitch raised up into position, we'll go ahead and install our hardware loosely.

Followed by making sure that the hitch is centered on the vehicle. Once we know the hitch is centered, we can go ahead and tighten down the hardware and torque it to the manufacturer's specification. Now that we have our hitch torqued down, we can go ahead and raise our exhaust back up into position and re-install the four rubber exhaust hangers. Now a quick tech 00:04:57 tip, the passenger's side rubber exhaust hanger, now we took it off this hanger here when we removed it but it will help if you take it off the hanger that stayed on the body like this and then re-install it on to the muffler first, then you can swing it up and onto the inaudible 00:05:23 just like that. It will go on much easier that way. We'll then go ahead and continue putting the rest of our exhaust hangers back on. With our rubber exhaust hangers back up into position we can go ahead and remove our safety strap and that will do it for the installation of the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver, part number 13577 on our 2014 Nissan Murano. .

The Curt trailer hitch fits and looks great on my 2009 Nissan Murano. The unexpected problem with the install is 3 of the 4 needed bolt holes in the frame of the vehicle were corroded from road exposure, preventing threading of the bolts. To correct this, I purchased a 12mm -1.25 metric tap and T-handle tap wrench (from Menards for around $15 total). I did have to lower the exhaust assembly (per the instructions) to gain access to use the tap. With use of a spray lubricant, the tap cleaned out the threads without much difficulty. Just get it straight when you start and it works well. Took a total of about 90 minutes in all with the failed attempts to insert the bolts on the first try, then tapping of the 3 bolt holes. 144622

Received the hitch on time for our 2013 Murano. My initial concern was if I could install the hitch without lowering the muffler system. My concern was unwarranted. I was able to install the hitch by myself and it only took me approx 1 hour. I located the hitch in place and blocked it in the install position so i could bolt it up with my hands free. I would recommend the product and company to anyone 133682


The hitch is used for our bike rack and we have had not problem. It was a good purchase

Watch the movie! When the hitch receiver arrived the heavy guage cardboard box was slightly damaged (and I was concerned that the bolts may have gone missing: not to worry, they were in a small plastic bag heavily taped inside the hitch receiver pocket. This installation can be done without jacking up the vehicle, but it could take longer than 40 minutes, although it is not a difficult job. Definitely lubricate the exhaust and muffler supports. The only problem I had was removing the tow point: the nuts were extremely tight and an air wrench was required. The hitch receiver is well made and finished, and it fit perfectly. I had to use an extension between the socket and the torque wrench on the driver side, but not on the passenger side: this may have been due to not lowering the muffler far enough. A 5/8" and a 19mm socket are required. Suggest when re-installing the muffler to hook up the exhaust pipe rubber hanger first before the hangers attached to the muffler. 104074

Great product and service. Easy to install. Took an hour by myself with a floor jack, and I did NOT need to lower the exhaust! If I had a second one to install I could probably do it in about 20 minutes after having done one install now. Wish I had a Curt on my vehicle but my wifes Murano looks great! 198468


Great purchase, looks great and towscarries wonderfully. If in need of another in the future you all will be where I buy it from.

The hitch arrived on time as promised but I didn't install it until the weekend. I have a 2009 Nissan Murano and I live in Minnesota so the most difficult step was removing the grime from the weld nuts. I needed to use a 12mm tap to get the gunk out of the three weld nuts and that took about one hour. I was able to install the hitch without dropping the exhaust system. I did this by removing the two plastic rivet fasteners from the from the rear trim piece below the bumper and then angling the hitch up and into place. I used a jack stand to hold the hitch in place and installed the bolts. This took about 40 minutes for a total installation time of one hour and 40 minutes. I have not installed the wire harness yet so no comment and that at this time. Very satisfied with etrailer, the videos are extremely helpful 361540

Ordered hitch on Thursday with no charge for shipping, received Monday. Product appears to be very solid and well-made. Fits my 2014 Murano perfectly. The installation instructions are a bit minimal, but etrailer's installation video was very helpful. Was able to install by myself, without lowering the exhaust or raising the rear end. Took about an hour, but I'm not especially talented or fast. You'll need a 19mm socket for the 4 bolts supplied with the kit, and a 16mm socket to remove the bolts from the Murano tow bracket. Also a socket extension bar of 10" if you do not lower the exhaust. Supported the hitch with a block . As you'll see from other reviews, it is possible to install it by yourself, but I think it would have saved me a lot of time and effort if I'd asked somebody to help me. 177747

Good looking heavy duty hitch, VERY easy to install! On my 2012 Nissan Murano, I did NOT have to lower the exhaust. I gently pushed in the bottom skirt below the bumper and gained enough room to raise the right side into place after I'd placed the left side (drivers side) where it needed to be and got one bolt started. Seemed to work great. Wiring harness worked exactly as described, but you do have to disassemble a lot of the rear of the car, so be ready for that. Very happy with my purchase, 3rd time I've bought from eTrailer and will continue to do so. Keep it up, guys! 264944

Outstanding product, easy to install, worked as advertised. The hitch bolted right in and I did not have to drop the exhaust...very straight forward process. I also ordered and installed the wiring harness and 4 pin bracket, no issues; instructions were precise and on target. Great product and great service. 96840

by: Super S08/17/2017

Product installed very easily. Fit perfectly on my '11 Murano. Unlike the video, there was plenty of room to add the hitch without dropping the exhaust -- have an extension for your socket, and you'll be good to go. People seemed to complain that removing the exhaust rubber hangers was a hassle -- just avoid it entirely, and work with the somewhat restricted space. Also, with this unit, no need to remove the panel attached to the bumper facia... this may be needed with the draw tite hitch which is a little more hidden. Overall, took about 30 or 40 mins to get the vehicle up on ramps, get my tools, install, and put everything away -- I wouldn't do without ramps -- too little access. 421434

I would definitely order from etrailer again as the communication was excellent and the hitch arrived timely and with all hardware needed to install. It's a nice clean but beefy looking hitch. My brother and I installed this in little over 1/2 an hour in my driveway. We backed the car onto car ramps to raise the back some (easier to get underneath). Between having an extra set of hands to help, the car ramps to raise the vehicle some, and having a nice long socket extension (probably around 12"), we didn't even have to remove the exhaust from it's hangers. I wish everything went on like this hitch did (like it's supposed to.....). Thanks etrailer! 20810

We just put the hitch on yesterday. By "we" I mean my husband. We plan to use it mainly with a bike rack that has an adapter attached, but could certainly could tow a trailer if needed to. It took about half an hour to install, with minimal cursing. If doing it alone it would be a good idea to find something ahead of time to hold one side of the hitch up while you're getting the bolts started on the opposite side. Husband was very impressed with the quality of the hitch and ease of installation. The ordering process easy, too. Shipped out right away and arrived on schedule. 405483

I received the trailer hitch 4 days after I ordered it. Already pleased out of the gate by having it arrive so I could install it this weekend. The installation went very well as advertised. The only pain as I expected it would be was putting the car trim pieces back into place (always easier to disassemble then to reassemble so no surprise) after I completed the electrical for the lights. The video of the process was a big help. I could not be more pleased with the price and the quality. I think you guys have it figured out. 12260

Excellent communication from the moment the transaction was placed through etrailer. They emailed me when the hitch was shipped and a follow up when delivery was completed. The hitch itself is awesome looking and well built. I have to admit I was a bit reluctant on installing the hitch myself, but after watching the online demonstration of the installation for the second time I was ready to give it a try. Very seldom do thing work for me without a hitch, no pun indented, but this time it did. Clean easy installation..... 19049

Everything you said it was. The only problem I had was I could not get the muffler mount off the left rear side . the hitch still went smooth and easy. the same with the wiring harness . I still have to put in the 4 pole to 7 pole adapter I will do that as soon as the long mount gets here . I put mine in without lifting the car, I'am 68 if I can any one should be able to do it or you should not be towing. Will send pictures ween I get long mount installed.

I just instaled the Curt trailer hitch I got from etrailer on my 2010 Nissan Marano. I was able to do it laying on my back in my driveway because the fit was perfect. I liked the Curt hitch best because I like the round tube design better than the square tube ones. Only took me about an hour to do, piece of cake. Just waiting now for the hitch mounted bicyle rack to come, than I'll be good to go. Thanks etrailer, I'll be back. 10924

The only thing keeping this from a full “Excellent” score is that there were a few minor chips in the finish on the hitch receiver. But other than that, everything fit just like in the video and there were no surprises during installation. I really appreciate the “how to” videos and being able save that money on the installation by doing it myself. Now we can spend the savings on other cool things on the website. 50700

Hitch was awesome and so easy to install thanks to your videos online. Made quick work of it and didn't even need to lower the exhaust. Your site was perfect and so easy to use. Will be recommending it to anyone I know who is even remotely curious about getting a hitch or wiring put on their vehicle. Also watched your wiring videos as well and that made a scary job so easy. Thanks again. 53479

Meriah was fantastic in handling my order. She assisted me (as did other's on previous calls) in ensuring that I was ordering the right pieces. She made sure that my order was filled quickly as I was under a time constraint to get the hitch installed to go pick up a new camper. It arrived and was very easy to install! The videos are a tremendous help. Thanks! Steve 223572

When this hitch arrived, my reaction was "This will never fit on my car". But I figured I'd give it a try. Literally 15 minutes later it was installed on my fits perfectly, looks great, and was easier to install than the directions indicated -- I didn't have to lower the muffler. Thanks -- I will never hesitate to recommend etrailer to anyone. 126633

My husband and a friend installed this and it only took about one hour with the wiring and it only took that long because of the way Nissan hides its bolts to disassemble-areas to install the wiring it was easy and fast would HIGHLY HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS TO ANY ONE AND TO BUY IT FROM ETRAILER.COM They were also very fast to ship and very friendly 155984

This was the easiest hitch kit I have ever seen. It took my husband less than 20 minutes to install it. However it took about an hour to get all the plastic out of the way. Clicked it all in and everything worked perfectly. If I had not had surgery the week before, I could have installed it myself. Recommend this to everyone? :,) 375081

We were very pleased with the quality of the hitch including the prompt delivery and first-rate packaging. The hitch was installed by our local tire dealer for $120; all went smoothly. The installed product saved us more than $400 compared to a dealer installation for our 2009 Nissan Murano. We highly recommend.... 103694

My 13577 Class III Hitch is perfect. It is exactly as advertised. I watched the installation video which was extremely helpful. One thing I did not do was release the four hanger brackets that hold the exhaust. There is sufficient room to remove the tow bracket and install the hitch. I am 100% satisfied with the hitch! 257485

After watching your installation video I realized how simple the install was going to be I immediately order the type of hitch I wanted The installation only took 1 hour from start to finish and the hitch fit perfectly The Nissan dealer wanted $460 to install a cheep version of a hitch than would not satisfy my needs 85602

by: William M04/06/2017

Installation was easier than first thought. I was able to remove the tie down bracket without first removing the (4) rubber exhaust isolators. This saved a lot of time removing/re-installing the isolators. The rest of the installation went very smoothly. Fortunately, I had all the necessary tools for this project. 363523

So far so good. I had the trailer mounted professionally. It was perfect for my Nissan Murano and the boat trailer fit perfectly. 260773

  • Recommended Receiver Hitch for 2012 Nissan Murano
  • 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 # 75647 Class III hitch you mentioned is manufactured by Draw-Tite, a very respected hitch manufacturer. I have provided you with a side-by-side photo showing both the Curt # 13577 and the Draw-Tite model installed on a 2012 Murano. As you can see in the photos,...

  • Recommended Solutions to Carry Bikes on a 2010 Nissan Murano
  • Does your Murano have a hitch or any type of roof rack? If it has a roof rack, is it just the rails that run front to back or does it also have the crossbars that run from passenger to driver side?

  • Recommended Concealed Cross Tube Hitch for a 2011 Nissan Murano Crossover
  • 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 is #...

  • Trailer Hitch Comparison for a 2010 Nissan Murano
  • The Hidden Hitch, # 87486, Reese Hitch, # 44600, and the Draw-Tite Hitch, # 75647, for the 2010 Nissan Murano, are all made by the same parent manufacturer and share the same instructions, see link, so they are identical in every way except badging. The Curt Class III hitch, # 13577, will mount in the same way as the other hitches, but has a round tube design instead of square which some people think is more pleasing to the eye. Other than that this hitch will perform much the same as...

  • Trailer Hitch for a 2014 Nissan Murano Cross Cabriolet
  • Actually Curt trailer hitch # 13577 is the only hitch we carry that does fit the 2014 Nissan Murano CrossCabriolet model. To complete your towing set up I recommend etrailer ball mount kit # 989900. It includes 2 ball mounts, 2 balls, a hitch pin with clip, and a storage bag. You will need to visit a Nissan dealer for trailer wiring.

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for a 2010 Nissan Murano
  • You will need a receiver hitch to provide an attachment point for the Bike Rack you were looking at. We offer 2 different hitches that will work great with your Murano, the Curt Class III Receiver Hitch, part # 13577 and the Draw-Tite Class III part # 75647. The Hidden Hitch and Draw-Tite models would be a good choice for you if you prefer the hitch to be partially concealed by the rear bumper structure of the vehicle. The square receiver tube would be the only visible portion of...

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for a 2015 Nissan Murano
  • For your 2015 Nissan Murano you will need the Curt Hitch part # C13205 as it has been confirmed as a fit for your vehicle. The # 13577 does not fit the 2015 models so there is no way to use it on your new Murano. I attached an install video for you to check out as well. If you wanted to do 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 one with a 2-3/4 inch rise or 4 inch drop. It also...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch and Towing Accessories for 2014 Nissasn Murano
  • All the available hitches for your 2014 Murano would share identical weight capacities (which could be limited by the capacities of the vehicle) of 4000 lbs towing/400 lbs tongue weight capacity. I'd choose the Curt Class III, part # 13577 because it's simpler to install and less expensive than the comparable Hidden Hitch or Draw-Tite alternatives. Also, the Curt hitch crosstube is constructed of round tubing, which some folks feel looks better than the rectangular tubing used by the...

  • Bike Rack for Nissan Murano Cross Cabriolet Convertible
  • You are correct that you will need a hitch-mounted bike rack with your 2011 Nissan Murano Cross Cabriolet. The only hitch that is a confirmed fit is the Curt # 13577, a Class III hitch that bolts on; I've added a link to a video of an install of this hitch for you to take a look at. With a bike rack, you have a couple of options - a platform rack and a hanging rack. For a platform rack I recommend checking out the Swagman XTC # S64670. It is a wheel mount design that uses padded ratcheting...

  • Trailer Hitch for 2014 Nissan Murano Cross Cabriolet for Use with Hitch Bike Rack
  • For the 2014 Nissan Murano Cross Cabriolet convertible we do have a hitch option from Curt, their 2-inch Class III model # 13577. This hitch comes with all required mounting hardware and is a no-drill installation. A hitch installation article and video are linked to help you with the install. With this hitch installed you can use a 2-inch hanging or platform bike rack of up to 5-bike capacity, thanks the to hitch's substantial 400-lb tongue weight (TW) rating. TW is downward force on...

  • Bike Carrying Options for 2014 Nissan Murano Cross Cabriolet
  • You'll need to use a hitch mounted bike rack, as there aren't any trunk mount bike racks that are compatible with your Murano. For a hitch, I'd recommend the Curt Class III hitch, part # 13577. For a bike rack, Swagman offers the reasonably priced yet well equipped Trailhead which is available in a 2 bike model # S63360, 3 bike model # S63365 or 4 bike model, as part # S63380. The racks include an anti rattle hitch bolt, but I'd recommend adding a locking hitch bolt/cable lock combo...

This Class III hitch is a no-drill installation and the process is shown in the linked video. Written instructions are included too. I linked a photo that shows you the appearance of the hitch and car after installation. The hitch's round cross tube will be visible under the bumper cover.

  • Can the Motorcycle Carrier MT70101 be Used to Carry a Yamaha Street Bike on a 2013 Nissan Murano
  • I have some good news and bad news; the good news is that you are definitely on the right track of making sure that you are under the 400-lb Tongue Weight (TW) capacity of your Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # 13577. The bad news is that your 2013 Nissan Murano looks like it is the limiting factor instead of your Curt hitch receiver. Your Murano has a towing capacity of 3,500 lbs and typically the TW is 10% of that making your TW capacity 350 lbs instead of 400. You will want to double check...

  • What Hitch Lock Is Recommended To Use On The Curt Class III 2 Inch Hitch # 13577
  • To use a hitch lock on Curt Class III 2 Inch Hitch, part # 13577, I would recommend the Deadbolt Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock, part # 7683. If you want a hitch lock that also includes an anti-rattle device you can use the Softride Anti-Rattle Device and Lock for 2 Inch Trailer Hitches, part # SR25219. If you are using a hitch bike rack or hitch accessory on your hitch you will need to use a hitch lock designed for that particular brand of hitch accessory. Most of the hitch accessory manufacturers...

  • Where are the Torque Specs for Installing Curt Trailer Hitch 13577 on a 2009 Nissan Murano
  • The torque specifications for trailer hitch # 13577 can be found in step 5 of the instructions which I have linked for you. I have also included a link to a video showing a typical installation on a 2009 Nissan Murano. Our installers always say to torque the hardware as specified in the instructions. This is because should the manufacture change the torque specs, the instructions will be up to date.

  • How to Carry Bikes with a 2011 Nissan Murano Cross Cabriolet
  • To carry a bike rack with your 2011 Nissan Murano Cross Cabriolet will require you to install a trailer hitch first as there are no trunk mounted options. For a hitch you would need the part # 13577 as it is the only confirmed to fit option we have. The most popular bike rack we carry that has been confirmed to fit this vehicle is the Swagman XTC2 Bike Rack part # S64670. This rack has a ton of positive reviews from our customers who have tried it. Check out the review video I attached...

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for a 2013 Nissan Murano
  • The Nissan Titan and Armada and Titan do not use the same trailer hitches. The 2013 Murano also requires trailer hitches designed just for it. If you have a regular model you can use # 75647 that you have referenced. If you have the CrossCabriolet model use # 13577. If you plan on doing some towing with either hitch I recommend etrailer ball mount kit # 989900. It comes with 2 ball mounts, 2 balls, a hitch pin with clip, and a storage bag. For trailer wiring use # 118653.

  • All of the 2-inch Class III hitches offered for your 2011 Nissan Murano will use the same frame mounting points for installation, but the version of the vehicle will determine which hitches are suitable. Installation procedures can vary slightly depending on whether or not you have the Cross Cabriolet version. The link provided has a drop-down menu to let you choose which version Murano you have and to see the hitch options that fit. Curt hitch # 13577 fits both versions and requires...

  • Recommended 2-Inch Class III Hitch for 2001 Toyota Highlander
  • The Curt Class III hitch # 13577 is a custom fit specifically made for versions of the Nissan Murano for model years 2009 through 2014. This hitch does NOT fit any model year of the Toyota Highlander. For a similar 2-inch Class III hitch designed for your 2001 Toyota Highlander I recommend the Draw-Tite # 41541. This hitch offers no-drill installation which is detailed in the linked video that shows a 2003 Highlander. If you also need a trailer wiring harness you can use the Tekonsha...

  • Which Hitch Will fit on a 2013 Nissan Murano?
  • There are three hitches that are confirmed fits for your 2013 Nissan Murano, including the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit, # 13577.

And, we do have a wiring harness that will work for your vehicle, but it will have to be hard-wired. Don't let that scare you, we have detailed instructions and a video of the installation on a Nissan.

  • Trailer Hitch And Bike Rack Recommendation For 2014 Nissan Murano Crosscabriolet
  • In order to have a bike carrier on your 2014 Crosscabriolet, you will need to use a trailer hitch mounted carrier. There are no trunk-mount racks available due to the way the back of the vehicle is made. I recommend the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver, part # 13577. This is a Class lll hitch and it has a 2 inch receiver opening. When installing the hitch the tie-down hook will need to be removed. The carrier I recommend is the Thule Vertex 2 Bike Rack, part # TH9028XT. This bike rack...

  • How to Remove Undercoating on 2013 Nissan Murano to Install Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # 13577
  • It sounds to me like the dealer applied some type of undercoating to the vehicle. In this case you could try removing it off of the weld nuts with a putty knife in order to install the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver, # 13577, on your 2013 Nissan Murano. If you are unable to remove the coating yourself, I recommend contacting the dealer or the company that applied the undercoating for instructions on how to remove it from the weld nuts.

  • What Causes Tire Cupping on a Trailer Tires
  • That's tire cupping. When you have cupping wear on a tire it is from the tire bouncing on the road. You will want to check the air pressure in the tire and make sure you are running the maximum air pressure that is indicated on the tire. Then, I would recommend to have the tires and wheels balanced. Another thing to check is the suspension parts on the trailer. When suspension parts begin to wear and get loose it can cause the tire to hop when being towed and cause the cupping pattern.
