Today on our 2013 Nissan Pathfinder, well be installing the Curt Hitch, part number C13126. This is what our hitch will look like once its installed. Next, well go ahead and give you a couple measurements to assist your selecting accessories for your new hitch.From the center of the hitch pin hole to the outer most part of the bumper is 2 and three-quarter inches. From the top of the inside of the receiver tube opening to the ground is 14 inches. This will assist you selecting accessory such as a ball mount, bike rack, or cargo carrier.Now lets go ahead with installation. Note, before we begin the install, weve already gone ahead and lowered and removed the spare tire for the ease in installation of the hitch.

Before we begin our installation, well go ahead and point out the attachment points. Therell be a total of six attachment points for this hitch, three on each side. These attachment points will be well nuts built into the frame by the manufacturer.We can go ahead and remove the manufacturers tow hook. Our next step will be to remove the fascia L bracket. Theres a pushpin fastener and 10 mm bolt for each.

Hang on to both the hardware and the L bracket as we will be reinstalling them. As we raise our hitch into position, put the passenger side up over the exhaust and then bring the drivers side up into position.As we put the hitch into position, youll see where it makes contact with the rear fascia. Well hold it in position and then take a paint marker and mark the area that will need to be trimmed.With the width marked out, well need to go ahead and mark out the length which is provided in the instructions. Go ahead make a mark, draw our lines and then using a rotary zip tool, we'll cut out this section. Now with the fascia cut out, were ready to go ahead and install the hitch.

The fasteners we'll be using for this hitch will be the new 12 mm bolts along with the half inch conical tooth washer, the teeth of the washer facing the hitch. Once again, we'll use an extra set of hands to help us hold the hitch while we install the fasteners. We'll install all six fasteners finger tight to secure the hitch to the vehicle.Next we'll go ahead and tighten down our fasteners and then torque to specifications as indicated in the instructions. Now with the hitch secured and torqued to specifications, we can go ahead and reinstall the fascia L bracket. Now with the L brackets re-secured, thatll complete the install of Curt hitch part number C13126 on our 2013 Nissan Pathfinder..

I ordered this trailer hitch for my 2014 Nissan Pathfinder… I watched the video that made, and decided it looked like a project I could try to do myself. I am not a mechanic, but I am decently handy with tools. I placed my order knowing that I needed the hitch to arrive the next week so that I could do the installation when I had some time off from work. The day after I placed the order I got a very pleasant phone message and email from a girl named Carla from She told me that One of the products that I ordered was not in stock. She told me I had three options. One option was to wait two weeks until the backordered product was available, another option was to split my orders shipping apart but pay extra for that, or a third option was to buy a different Hitch ball assembly that Carla had found to be almost the same, but in stock. This was one of the best online shopping experiences I have had, because of the personal touch from the cute girl with the southern accent that called me to talk about the options that were available due to a problem with my order. I love the fact that she was so personal, relatable, and not automated. I love the fact that she gave me three great options instead of just some lousy automated response that would tell me I'm shafted. I love the fact that the girl who called me was pleasant, kind, and located in the company, in the state, in the country, where I was buying the product. She was so helpful. She left a voicemail for me, she called me again, and she emailed me to be sure I got the message. This is what I call great service. This experience of service is what will make me want to buy from this again!!! The hitch arrived in good condition, although the box was broken and the large metal sides of the hitch were protruding through the box by about 6 inches. Nevertheless, the product was not damaged at all. All the other products were also in the large box, in a smaller box. I was able to follow the instructions on the instructional video that was provided, and I was able to put the hitch on my pathfinder by myself! This took a little bit of ingenuity, because I don't have a lift and I was alone. So I had to prop up the heavy-metal hitch assembly on some crates and shimmy it up with some planks of wood to just the right height so that I could boat in the other side. It worked! This particular hitch seems perfectly designed, and fit perfectly on the 2014 Nissan Pathfinder that I have. I am extremely satisfied. I am extremely satisfied with my purchase from a 189264

I was looking for a hitch that would protrude as little as possible and be easy to install. Thanks to the etrailer's review and installation videos I chose exactly the right hitch to meet my criteria. Everything but the Curt receiver is tucked up under the bumper, and the step-by-step installation video gave me the confidence and tips to make the job very easy. My order was shipped promptly, delivered fast, and is now installed. I like to support companies that go the full measure - so has my full endorsement. 402555

Works great for trailering my small sailboat and for my bike rack with my 2014 QX60. Ordered in the afternoon and it arrived the next day even on ground shipping. Took my local mechanic a couple hours to install the hitch and the Curt T-Connector Wiring. 380559

Excellent trailer hitch ,easy to install also suply Nut and Bolt plus ring . My friend mechanical shop and he told me you really by towing very good staff ,where you got it ? I said to him look the sticker at the bar ,oh he said ,you smart by this extra spend time but saving big buck . Saving money cost less than $ xxx ,but if you buy the car with towing package extra probably $ 1000 so I suggest do the same what I did . And also behind you car people stop or parking not to close you car ,protect bumper from scratch or damage . Thank you to all of you and Merry Christmas 2016 and the Best New year come 2017 . 326348

Received the hitch today and was able to install it the same day. It was a very simple job with the instructions that came with it in addition to the very helpful video on this website. Total time was around an hour from start to finish. The only thing I would mention was the small cutout on the valance was supposed to be 2-1/2" x 1-3/8", but that size isn't quite big enough. I had to make it about 1-3/4" deep to fully allow the valance to sit properly around the hitch. I would imagine that the plastic pieces can vary from car to car so that cutout might work for others, but it didn't for me. No big deal, just wanted to mention it in the hopes it might help others. The wife loves the look, and we can now put our luggage carrier on and won't have to put all our bags inside, leaving plenty of room for the kids to stretch out and watch movies! Thanks for a great product delivered quickly! 372910

Ok so I was nervous to buy this and install it myself but I have access to a garage with power tools so I thought I'd roll the dice and see if I could it on a 2014 pathfinder. makes this so dummy proof it's ridiculous. So glad they had videos and could virtually hold my hand through this. Installation was flawless. Took a couple hours but that's because the holes for my bolts were rusted over and needed to be scrubbed ALOT. I would highly recommend getting the wire brush they offer and some type of cleaning solution. Obviously air powered tools make a huge difference because my bolts where stuck but all the parts provided was great. Highly recommend this website!! 282722

I like the mounting of this that goes up under the bumper hidden instead of exposed like the others. The bad is there is no way to mount trailer wiring to anything and the reciever had a big paint spot missing from the bottom that I had not noticed until after putting it on. Paint had bubbled and flaked off. I have put these on before and they become covered in rust within 3 years anyway. The missing paint dosnt help. Do yourself a favor and order and buy the factory Nissan kit for $100 more from other sites online. It won't rust out and gets all the Nissan OEM mounting and trim pieces. It also will handle the 5000lbs the pathfinder is rated to instead the 4000 this one lists. 255956


It has worked functionally. The mounting bracket for the wiring has complety rusted out. It looks 10 years old

I got this to go on our Infiniti JX35, and it works great. It took less than an hour to install, which I did on my own when it was cold out! I went with this hitch as wanted minimal parts showing, and this one fits the bill. The small amount of trimming that was required was easy, I just used a sharp utility knife and took my time. When you install this, do the exhaust side first, learn from my struggles! Works great and has a clean install look. 236568


Everything is great, use it with a bike rack and a luggage rack!

I really love this hitch that I bought for my nissan pathfinder 2013 and it fits perfect . The only thing that I did not like about it was that it had a little scratch on it but since I paid about 150 for it I would expect some good looking in it . But it's not like its not gonna get scratched under my car with all of the rocks and dust hitting it . But other then that I'm realy happy with it pulling my 3 ATVs on it . Other then the scratch I'm really happy with it . Thank you etrailer. 105906

I received the trailer hitch in a reasonable amount of time and the installation time was very accurate. Took about an hour and a half without using power tools and no lift or help. Would recommend this company for any one seriously thinking about installing a trailer hitch. 143923

You know that that was the fastest order I have ever received in. Next day was the best and the only problem was the carrier doesn't care what a package looks like when they deliver anything. The box was all busted open and looked real nasty but everything was in there so I was so happy. I got it installed and everything went just the why everything should. The quality of the hitch is top notch and the price was ever better. 123407

Installed hitch today. Fit was perfect and instructions were great. I did it by myself with no problem by setting hitch on a 14 inch box under the car. Pros take 40 minutes. Because the instructions were very clear, I did it in a bit over an hour. Incidentally the local shor wanted nearly $600 for hitch, install and electric. This was in the meighborhood of $1$$ for everthing . Love it 352338

Great quality product. Easy to install. Have an issue with the plastic push pins that secure the rear fascia to the L brackets hitting the bottom of the hitch tube not allowing the push pins to fully seat properly. This can be seen at 2:19 in the install video. Price was fantastic and it shipped same day, received it just two days later (in Ohio). Thank you! 81758

Installed a hitch on our Infiniti QX60. Everything we needed was included in the kit, we installed in about 30 minutes. Looks great, if a retired accountant can install it in minutes, it has to be easy! The Infiniti dealership wanted over $1,100 to install, we did it for pennies on the dollar, which makes the accountant in me very happy! 362285

Great fit, good quality and ease of installment. I saw some people said they did it in 2 hrs, I did it in half the time with just me by myself. All I used was a socket wrench, utility knife and a screw driver to pop out the plastic clips. I got it without tax and free shipping, so overall a great deal. 194348

Install went well and took only about 45 minutes. Had a bit of trouble with one mounting bolt on the driver's side where a bracket holding part of the emissions system got in the way. That's it. Hitch looks good and is barely visible and is up to hauling my heavy boat. Etrailer video helped a lot. 275516

The hitch fits the 2013 nissan pathfinder without cutting the fascia. 85460


No cutting? does it warp the fascia from touching, or creates vibrations do you feel or hear inside the cabin?

Took better part of an hour to install, very simple, however, you will likely need an impact drill to remove the existing tow point. Otherwise a very simple install- 114387

I also spoke with my local Infiniti dealer and they told me that the JX35 does not come with a port under...

  • Is there a Wiring Mounting Bracket on the Curt # C13126 Trailer Hitch for a 2013 Nissan Pathfinder
  • Due to the profile of the Curt Class III trailer hitch # C13126, most of the hitch crossbar is recessed under the rear fascia of a 2013 Nissan Pathfinder. Therefore this hitch does not include a mounting location for trailer wiring. Since there is limited space on the hitch crossbar, a mounting bracket is not included on the hitch. Additionally, the rear fascia has to be trimmed to complete the installation of this hitch. I have included a photos showing this hitch installed on a 2013...

  • Does the Rear Fascia of a 2013 Infiniti JX35 Need to be Trimmed to Install a Curt Hitch # C13126
  • Yes, you will need to modify the rear bumper of your 2013 Infiniti JX35 to install the Curt Trailer Hitch # C13126. If you check out the installation instructions that I attached for this hitch you will see that the vehicle they use in the instructions is a JX35 like yours and will require the bumper to be modified. The hitch opening will hang right below the bumper, but the majority of the hitch will be out of plain sight.

  • Recommended Maximum Towing Capacity of 2013 Nissan Pathfinder
  • The actual towing capacity of a vehicle is a function of both the vehicle itself, as rated by the auto maker based on the specific equipment included, and of the particular hitch that is installed. Although all the hitches we offer for your 2013 Pathfinder are the 2-inch Class III type, these have varying towing capacities. For instance, Curt # C13126 is rated for 4000-lbs towing, but if used along with a weight distribution (WD) system such as the Reese # RP66084 the hitch capacity increases...

The distance from center to center on the mounting holes closest to the receiver opening is 48.964 inches and 46.965 inches for the holes furthest from the receiver opening.

  • Does Bumper Fascia of 2013 Inifiniti JX35 Need to Be Modified to Install a Hitch
  • Whether you'll need to modify the bumper fascia or not will depend on which hitch you choose. The nice thing about the Curt Class III you mentioned, part # C13126 is that the entire hitch with the exception of the receiver opening is concealed behind the vehicle bumper. According to the installation instructions, a small (1-3/8 x 2-1/2 inch) area of the underside of the bumper fascia would need to be trimmed away. I've linked you to photos showing the area that would be trimmed and how...

  • Can I Use Weight Distribution System with 2014 Infiniti QX60
  • I would contact your Infiniti dealer to make sure your hitch is rated for weight distribution, but since it is a class III hitch most likely it is. Curt does makes a class III trailer hitch for the 2014 Infiniti QX60 that is rated for weight distribution. Curt hitch # C13126 has a maximum gross trailer weight of 4000 lbs and a maximum gross trailer weight of 5000 lbs when used with weight distribution.

  • Will a Trailer Hitch Block Automatic Liftgate Sensor on a 2017 Infiniti QX60
  • It is possible that Curt trailer hitch # C13126 could partially block the motion sensor on your 2017 Infiniti QX60. You may find that it doesn't affect it at all or you might find that you will have to trigger the sensor in a certain place that is different than what you are used to. It seems to vary from vehicle to vehicle. If you plan on doing some towing I recommend etrailer ball mount kit # 989900.

  • Recommendation on a Class III Hitch for an Infiniti QX60 AWD
  • We have two Class III hitches that will fit your 2015 Infiniti QX60 AWD. Of the two hitches, I recommend the Draw-Tite Class III Hitch, # 76031,over the Curt Class III Hitch, # C13126. The Draw-Tite Hitch has a higher towing capacity than the Curt hitch and our installers find the Draw-Tite hitch easier to install. The Draw-Tite hitch is custom-fit for your vehicle and will attach to your Infiniti's frame using already existing bolt holes. No drilling into the frame will be required. If...

  • Installing Trailer Connector on 2013 Nissan Pathfinder
  • According to my research, the 2013 Pathfinder should already have a 7-way trailer connector at the rear. If not, look under the vehicle for the trailer wiring. There should be a wire harness with a US car connector on the end, like what's shown in the provided photo. The connector will probably have a protective cap on the end. The harness you found would plug into the trailer connector, part # HM40975. The connector is not a vehicle-specific item, so you'll need to devise a way of...

  • Can Foot Activation for LiftGate on a 2017 Infiniti QX60 Still be Used With Hitch Receiver Installed
  • Although you won't be able to just wave your foot under the back of your 2017 Infiniti QX60 to activate the hands-free liftgate function, you will still be able to easily activate it by performing a kicking motion (like you are kicking a football) to the left or right side of the trailer hitch receiver. The trailer hitch receiver that I recommend for your QX60 is the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver # 76031 due to the higher weight capacities (900 lbs TW and 6,000 lbs GTW)...

  • Is the Curt Trailer Hitch # C13126 Suitable with Platform Bike Rack on Nissan Pathfinder
  • The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C13126 referenced in your question is a Class III hitch with a 2" x 2" receiver opening and will definitely be suitable with a Saris Platform Bike Rack on your 2016 Nissan Pathfinder. Saris offers a fair amount of Platform Racks and choosing the best option for you would first depend on how many bikes you are planning on carrying.

  • Does Trailer Hitch Hardware Have to be Torqued to the Specifications in the Instructions
  • The hitch is rated for its given capacity when installed according to the installation instructions and that includes the torque ratings specified in the instructions. If they are too tight you can damage the hitch and vehicle frame. Not tight enough and the hitch could come loose. If you do not have a torque wrench many auto parts stores will loan out tools. I recommend calling around to a few places to see if they have a tool loan program so you can torque down the hitch hardware...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch for 2013 Nissan Pathfinder
  • Given the choice between the Draw-Tite and the Curt receiver hitch for your 2013 Pathfinder, I'd lean more toward the Draw-Tite hitch for the following reasons: -The Draw-Tite # 76031 has a capacity that's higher than the other hitch. You'll be limited by the capacity of the vehicle, but the higher capacities indicate that the hitch might be a bit more durable in the long run. -The Draw-Tite hitch is a less expensive by a few dollars. I don't mind paying a bit more if there's a difference...

There is only one trunk mount rack I recommend on a vehicle with a spoiler and that is the Hollywood Racks Over-the-Top rack # HRF2.
