The 2002 4x4 Nissan Frontier is a pickup truck that was first manufactured and sold in 1998. The vehicle can be purchased as a two-wheel or four-wheel drive. If your vehicle experiences car trouble, you should stop using the vehicle and have it inspected by a trained auto-mechanic. If there are major issues, towing the vehicle will likely be required to get it to the auto mechanic. Follow the recommended procedures to properly tow your Nissan Frontier without damaging it.
Things You'll Need
- Tow chains or cables
Move the "4WD" shift to the "2H" position.
Turn the key inside the ignition to the "Off" position.
Secure the steering wheel in straight-ahead position by using rope.
Attach tow chains or cables to the main structural parts of the vehicle. Some vehicles feature tow hooks located underneath the front and rear of the vehicle. Do not attach cables to the body of the vehicle. This can potentially damage the frame of the car.
Observe restricted towing speeds. The car must be towed at a speed of 60 MPH or less. The car cannot be towed more than 500 miles.
Tips & Warnings
- Nissan recommends the use of towing dollies be used when towing a four-wheel drive Frontier. A flatbed truck is also recommended.
- Never secure the steering wheel of a vehicle being towed to the "Lock" position with the ignition key. This can potentially damage or ruin the lock mechanism of the steering wheel.
