Front T-Hook Procedure




NOTE
All applicable state or provincial (in Canada) laws regarding the towing operation must be obeyed.


WARNING
It is necessary to use proper towing equipment to avoid possible damage to the vehicle during towing operation. Towing is in accordance with Towing Procedure Manual at dealer.


WARNING
Always attach safety chains before towing.


WARNING
When towing, make sure that the transmission, steering system and power train are in good order. If any unit is damaged, dollies must be used.


WARNING
Never tow CVT models with the front or all four wheels on the ground (forward or backward) as this may cause serious and expensive damage to the transaxle.


NOTE
If it is necessary to tow a CVT equipped vehicle with the rear wheels raised, always use towing dollies under the front wheels.


WARNING
When towing CVT models with the front wheels on the towing dollies or M/T models with the front wheels on the ground.



Turn the ignition key to the OFF position, and secure the steering wheel in a straight ahead position with a rope or similar device. Never secure the steering wheel by turning the ignition key to the LOCK position. This may damage the steering lock mechanism.
 
Move the shift lever to the N (Neutral) position.
 


NOTE
When the battery of the vehicle equipped with Intelligent Key system is discharged, your vehicle should be towed with the front wheels on towing dollies or place the vehicle on a flatbed truck.


NOTE
When towing with the rear wheels on the ground (if you don-t use towing dollies): Always release the parking brake.


NOTE
NISSAN recommends that CVT equipped vehicles be towed with the driving (front) wheels off the ground or that a dolly be used as illustrated.
