Does the Muffler have to be Removed to Install a Trailer Hitch on a 2013 Nissan Altima Sedan


I am looking to purchase a hitch for my 2013 Nissan Altima. Do ALL hitches for my year make/model require the muffler to be dropped for hitch installation? If not which hitch models do not require the muffler to be dropped to install hitch?


Expert Reply:

All of the trailer hitches for a 2013 Nissan Altima Sedan do require temporary removal of the muffler in order to complete the installation. The most popular hitch option for the vehicle is Draw-Tite trailer hitch # 24796 that you have referenced. I have included a link to a video showing a typical installation and a link to the installation instructions for you.

If you plan on doing some towing first consult the vehicle owners manual for the vehicles capacities. For a ball mount use # 3594. For a 1-7/8 inch ball use # 19256 and for a 2 inch ball use # 19258. For trailer wiring use # 118470.
