Nissan Juke Towbars
Nissan Juke Towing SpecificationsThe Nissan Juke is a subcompact crossover SUV produced by the Japanese manufacturer Nissan since 2010. Below we will cover the Nissan Juke's towing specifications.
Nissan Juke Towbar electric kitsWe recommend that all tow bars fitted to a Nissan Juke are fitted with a dedicated electrics kit, this not only helps to ensure all modern features, such as trailer stability, parking sensors function correctly, but also ensures that the vehicles manufacturer’s warranty is not invalidated.
A quick look at Nissan's warranty page confirms that for the Nissan Juke, only vehicles which are under 3 years old or have less than 60,000 miles on the clock, will have a manufacturers warranty active unless you have taken out the extended warranty.
Bypass RelaysNissan Juke will NOT require a bypass relay if universal electrics are fitted. Bypass relays are used to ensure that the kit does not present faults on the dashboard.
A bypass relay helps the universal kit hide from your vehicle ECU and functions so as not to put faults on the dashboard hence the name “BYPASS”.
A dedicated system works in harmony with your vehicles ECU and all of its functions.
CodingThis is the coding of the ECU to accept the dedicated system, this updates your vehicle's software to run smoothly with the new towbar, it works very much like an update to your smartphone.
All Nissan Juke will NOT require coding if a dedicated kit is fitted.
Bumper cutsThe only options on the Nissan Juke towbars are, None Visible Cut, or Visible, a bumper cut is required.
Nose weightNose weight is the amount of weight pushing down on the tow ball, it is important to not exceed the nose weight set on the tow bar, failure to do so could damage the car chassis and/or tow bar mounting points. For the Nissan Juke, the maximum capacity nose weight is 75kg, nose weights are displayed under each tow bar below.
Towing weightTowing weight is the weight that the Nissan Juke towbars can tow safely, without damaging the vehicle, the maximum towing weight capacity is 1500kg, the minimum towing weight capacity is 1250kg.
You will need to check the towing limit for your model of Nissan Juke as it may not be able to tow up to the weight limit that the tow bar can tow.
