Checking Bolts Included With Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch For 2005 Nissan Murano


Do you know what size bolts come with the hitch. The bolts that came with my hitch seem to be to big, they will not even start to thread. I was going to see if I could get a tap and chase the threads but Im not sure what size tap to get. I have a 2005 murano. I tried cleaning the threads to see if the were closed due to corrosion, but they dont seem to be.

The bolts that are included with the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch, part # 75148 are M12 X 1.25 CL8.8 fasteners.

The fasteners should fit in the weldnuts on the frame of your Murano. You may want to take a fastener to a local hardware store and compare the threads and size to make sure you have the right size.

There may be corrosion you can't see on the threads. Try using a penetrant like PB Blaster and spray the threads, then let it sit overnight. Then spray again the next day and clean the threads with a nylon brush like part # 814092 to make sure the threads in the weldnuts are clear.

I do recommend checking the size of the bolts before chasing the threads on the vehicle to make sure you have the correct ones.
