Can you haul a trailer with a murano?


you will have to have a tow bar fitted by a tow bar fitting shop
It is a regulation requirement that any tow bars fitted have to have a vehicle modification plate fitted by an authorized fitting agent to keep it legal on the road.

Need to fit a VS tow bar to a VX


of course it can with a bit of welding and cutting ,but the official answer is no as it can only be used on the vehicle it was designed for so this new vehicle must be taken to a authorised tow bar fitting workshop and have the correct towing hitch fitted which conforms to europeon regulations ,then once its fitted the relavent paperowrk purporting to the towbar plus the tax paid reciept from the garage taken to the nearest vehicle test station and duely tested as part of a complete new yearly inspection then the paperwork is changed to show the towing bar and new certificate of inspection .Failure tom comply will render the owner liable to a big fine

How much weight can my 1.6 diesel focus sport tow ?


Here is more than you expected on hitches and vehicles ... all for free and in under 30 minutes.

These are general hitch comments. I am not familiar with your particular vehicle. You have not listed the year, for one thing. Further, I don't know where you are located, different countries have different standards and vehicles are built for the standards where the vehicle is expected to be sold. Ratings vari year to year and also due to installed equipment - automatic or manual transmission for example. Typically, manual transmission vehicles have a lower rating than automatic transmission equipped vehicles. If your vehicle has overdrive, still another rating and/or restrictions apply. Additional weight may require additional transmission cooling capacities as well as engine oil cooling. You may need bigger tires and possibly, different rims.

Gross Vehicle Weight Rating should be posted on the driver door pillar as well as in the owner manual and maybe under the hood on a lable. Full particulars for your vehicle can also be found at www.ford.com. The label you find is the rating for your vehicle as it came equipped from the manufacturer. The label you find in your neighbor's truck in his or her driveway may be different.

For 'lighter' reading, checkc this out: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gross_vehicle_weight_rating

You will find lots more information than the average person needs. It all boils down to this:

The vehicle weighs something ... lets call it curb weight. No fuel, no oil, no passengers, just the vehicle, straight off the assembly line - nothing added.

The vehicle will weigh more when you fuel it up, put in passengers and cargo; the owners manual, a box of tissues, a DVD player, Big Mac and fries - ANYTHING YOU PUT IN. You can load your vehicle up to the Maximum Gross Vehicle Weight Rating. and expect it to oplerate safely.

The NET weight is the difference between the Gross Vehicle Weight Rating and the Curb Weight --- the NET is the combined weight of the passengers, fuel, tissues, ink pens, electronics, etc, stuff you added. Dont exceed the MVGWR.

Your vehicle has a TOW capacity. I have seen "limits" up to 15,000 punds depending upon the hitch. Your vehicle may have a lower or higher "limit" and there may be other factors involved.

Tow capacity will come in two categories, first is a simple trailer. A simple trailer will not have a weight distributing hitch nor will it have any stopping ability on its own. I would suspect the simple weight rating would be limited by the bumper mounted ball and probably around 1,000 pounds. The limit should be stamped on the bumper near the hole whre the ball will be mounted.

Your vehicle may be capable of pulling a large trailer commercial or non commercia, camper, utility, what ever. If you have a PickUp, it will depend if you have a 5th wheel arrangement or a frame mount arrangement. A 5th wheel arrangement (hitch will be in the bed of your pickup) will have one rating and a frame mount will have another - and I am talking about a weight distributing hitch, with springs, anti-sway, etc, not a simple ball mount. Typically, such a hitch is limited to about 1,000 pounds, posibly up to 1,500 pounds which will be called HITCH weight what the hitch would exert downward if the jack (hitch) were placed on a scale.

A frame mounted hitch will come in two parts, the actuall ball (including trunions for springs and anti-sway device) and a "Receiver" which will bolt directly to the frame. The hitch may be adjustible or welded. The hitch is inserted into the 2 inch square receiver and secured with a special hardened steel pin itself secured by a "safety pin". Expect to pay around $600.00 or more for such a hitch. Don't save money by installng a used hitch or one not designed your your vehicle. It must be adjusted to your truck and your trailer to assure proper distribution of the load.

Lets say your trailer weighs 10,000 pounds. My example is not mathmatically correct and is to make it simple to state and easy to understand. In this case, four thousand pounds will rest on the wheels on the right side, four thousand pounds will rest on the left side and two thousand pounds will rest on the hitch. (Your trailer has four tires, each tire supports 2,000 pounds, and should be rated around 2,400 pounds for a safety margin. Read the side of your tire.) Your hitch max is 1,200 pounds in my example, the weight you can put ON THE HITCH. By using a weight distributing hitch, the springs and trunions will throw about 400 pounds forward to the front of your vehicle and 400 pounds back to the trailer tires. Now your hitch only weighs 1,200 pounds so you are not exceeding that weight limit. Such a trailer will come with electric breaks which will be operated by a controller located hear the driver position. Stopping your trailer will not depend entirely on the truck brakes which allows the towing of heavier trailers.

Another consideration is the tires on your truck. In my example, you just put 400 more pounds IN your vehicle. Can your tires each handle the additional 100 pounds??? Again, read the side wall of your vehicle tires. ASSURE YOU MAINTAIN APPROPRIATE TIRE PRESSURE ALL AROUND INCLUDING THE TRAILER for maximumm safety.

Thank you for your interest in FixYa.com

2004 series 3 BMW 316i fitting a Towbar mainly how to remove rear valance


you shouldnt need to remove the rear valance to fit a towbar ,i would suggest you contact a authorised towbar fitting workshop as it is not permitted to fit a towbar yourself ,it has to be done by a company with the correct authorised dealership as the towbar has to be certified with a europeon certificate of homoglonation and a plaque .then vehicle has to be presented at the vehicle inspection station for conformity .Then the paperwork of the vehicle changed to show its fitted with a towing hitch and a fee paid for this service .alicantecoli_18.jpgalso the electrics have to be connected by a auto electrician as every annual vehicle inspection the electrics are tested as well where a towbar is fitted .

Can this vehicle be made towable? Can the Factory towing package be added to the vehicle if it does not have one?


If you mean can the vehicle be equipped with a hitch unit and modified so that it can tow loads yes, it can. In most cases you have to get a special hitch, usually a low profile receiver type hitch and a transmission cooler if it's not already equipped with one. If it has a transmission cooler already they will put a heavy duty one in instead of the light duty one that more than likely came with the vehicle.

Your best bet is to go to the reese hidden hitch web site, (google it)and look them both up. If it's the same number, it's the same hitch.

I want to put a 2" slide-in hitch on my 1991


Go to your nearest UHAUL center and give them your vehicle information. They should pull out part # 75038. It is a Class III with a 5000lbs towing capacity (8000lbs if you have weight distributers installed) The pre drilled holes on the hitch should match the holes on your truck without removing bumper or spare. ( you might have to temporaly remove/ lower them to install the hitch, but you can put it back on without any modifications) Luck!

I want to install a trailer hitch and wiring harness. Is there already holes in the frame to install the hitch aand is there already wiring that can be tapped into for the wiring harness?


Yes, this is actually a quite simple installation. There are two different versions of this vehicle. With and without stow and go. They both require different hitches and mounting schemes. Both vehicles will have the same wiring however. Part number 55537 will give you the correct wiring. If your vehicle has stow n' go you will need hitch number 13389 and if it does not you will need 13362. I hope this helps!

Towing with a Hybrid


I have the same vehicle. Go to Ford dealer and buy the trailer hitch which replaces the regular rear end. It took me about two hours to install and I have towed a heavy trailer several times now with no problem. Because this is a unitized body/frame vehicle, it would be unwise to try to weld a generic hitch on. The Ford hitch fits right on to existing bolt holes. You have to cut a small square notch in the center of the plastic rear bumper for the hitch to stick out.
