How to Install a Trailer Hitch on a 2015 Nissan Murano


Today on our 2015 Nissan Murano we're going to review and install the Draw-Tite class three 2" receiver tube hitch hitch, part number 75952. Here's what our hitch is going to look like once it's installed. As you can see, it's got a nice stylish round crosstube into a fully welded construction. Got a nice black powder-coated finish on the entire hitch so it blends in nicely with the underbody of the vehicle. The main portion of the hitch is tucked up nicely under the rear fascia, and the only thing really accessible is our chain hold down on either side of the receiver tube. The 5/8 pinhole is pre-drilled, and our 2" by 2" class three receiver tube.

The hitch itself is capable of up to 600 pounds of tongue weight and a 4,000 pound tow capacity. Next I'll give you a couple measurements. This will assist you with selecting accessories such as a ball mount, bike rack, or cargo carrier. From the center of the hitch pinhole to the outermost edge of the bumper is 4-1/4". From the top of the receiver tube opening down to the ground is 12-1/4". We'll now go ahead and show you the minimum tools required for installing the hitch.

Here we have our scraper, tube brush with some spray lubricant, 19mm socket and extension, along with our ratchet for tightening and our torque wrench. Now let's go ahead and show you how to install the hitch. Now to begin our install let's go ahead and point out the attachment points. Our attachment points are going to be weld nuts built into the frame by the manufacturer. Here on the driver side just behind the exhaust hanger is going to be our forward attachment point. The next one will be our center attachment point.

Then closest to the end of the frame will be our third and rear attachment point for the driver side. Now on the passenger side it's also going to be the weld nuts, but we're just going to have two attachment points. From the end of the frame it's the first and the second weld nut. Now before we put our hitch in place we're going to do a little prep work. Now on some applications on the bottom of the frame is going to be an undercoating or some overspray. We need to clean that off so that the hitch can sit flush with the bottom of the frame.

Just using a scraper, we'll go ahead and peel off this overspray. Next we're going to go ahead and clean out the weld nuts. The weld nuts over time are going to build up with rust, dust, dirt and debris so it can be difficult to get the new hardware started. We'll use a spray lubricant and 1/2" nylon tube brush, part number 814092, to thoroughly clean out those threads. Then once we have them cleaned out, we can go ahead and take one of the new fasteners and thread it into the weld nut to make sure it's going to go nice and easily. Then we can go ahead and repeat the same process for all of the attachment points. Now keep in mind that each process we do here on the driver side is going to get repeated identically on the passenger side. Now the hardware for each of the five attachment points is going to be a 12mm bolt and 1/2" conical tooth washer. The teeth of the washer will face the hitch as it will go through the hitch attachment point and into the weld nut. We're now ready to go ahead and install the hitch. It's a good idea to get an extra set of hands to help you hold the hitch while you install the fasteners. We'll go ahead and bring the hitch up to the bottom of the frame and just get our fasteners started. As we install our fasteners, we'll just thread them in finger tight until we have them all in place. Now once we have our fasteners installed, we can go ahead and tighten them down. Now with all our fasteners tightened down, we'll go ahead and torque to specifications as indicated in the instructions. Now just like that, our hitch is installed, tightened down, and torqued to specifications, and we're ready to hit the road. That will do it for the review and install of the Draw-Tite class three 2" receiver tube hitch, part number 75952, on our 2015 Nissan Murano.
