How to Install a Trailer Hitch on a 2009 Nissan Murano

Today on this 2009 Nissan Murano we will be installing Curt hitch, part number 13577. Okay we are underneath the vehicle and the first thing we want to go ahead and do is lower the exhaust and get it out of our way. There are four hangers on the exhaust that we need to lower down. There are two here on the drivers side, one here on the passengers side, and one in the middle at the forward side.

I am going to go ahead and spray the studs down with a spray lubricant like a WD-40. And you can take a pry bar or a pair of pliers and remove the rubber hanger from the stud. Here at the rear I am going to go ahead and support the middle tube of the exhaust system, because once you remove it off of all four hangers the exhaust will down and could possibly damage the system. I am going to take a basic ratchet strap, you can use a bungee cord or some rope if you would like, and just basically route it across. Just enough to support the middle bar again.

Okay next over here on the drivers side we want to remove the tow hook. There are four bolts holding the tow hook onto the frame that we need to remove. With the tow hook removed you can see on the drivers side frame rail that we have multiple weld nuts here at the bottom of the frame. We are going to be using this one here and this one here. And we are going to attach the hitch using the new 12 millimeter hardware that is provided with the installation kit. And then here, at the third attaching point, we are going to be reusing one of the bolts that was holding the tow hook in place. Over on the passengers side you will see there are just two weld nuts here at the bottom of the frame. Again, these two weld nuts will be using the new 12 millimeter hardware that is provided with our installation kit. Now that we have those pointed out we can go ahead and mount the hitch up into place.

Now that we have the hardware in up into place we can torque our bolts down. You want to check with the directions to verify the appropriate torque rating for each individual bolt. Okay with all the bolts torqued down you want to put the exhaust back up on its hangers and our installation will be complete. And with that, that will conclude the installation of Curt hitch part number 13577 on a 2009 Nissan Murano.
