Video Transcript for Thule Podium Roof Rack Installation - 2014 Jeep Compass

Today on our 2014 Jeep Compass we'll be test fitting the Thule Podium Roof Rack System using part numbers THLB50, TH460 and THKIT3097. With everything already assembled according to the included instructions, the first thing we need to do is remove the plastic caps which cover up the threaded holes. Along the flush mounted side rails, there are four sets of two plastic caps which thread in into the threaded holes. We'll need to unscrew them so that we can access the silver threaded holes. With this done, we'll need to place the front load bar onto the front of our roof. The holes in the rubber coated metal plate should line up with the holes in our flush rails. We'll need to take the Allen bolts to go through the holes of our plates and into the holes of our flush rails.

We'll then use the included Allen key to tighten it down. We'll then move to the other side of the vehicle and repeat the same process. Once this is tight, we'll also need to make sure that the screws, which secure the rubber coated plate to the actual foot, are tight as well. Once this is done, we'll repeat the same process for the back. Once everything is all tightened down and secured, we'll go ahead and install our locking covers. These covers do not have the lock cylinders in them, but you can purchase them on our website. The cores that come with them can be locked by using a flathead screwdriver or a small coin. That should complete today's test fit of the Thule Podium Roof Rack System using part numbers THLB50, TH460 and THKIT3097 on our 2014 Jeep Compass.

Expert Answers about Roof RackDo you have a question about this Roof Rack?


  • Which Thule and Yakima Roof Racks Will Fit a 2011 Honda CR-V
  • The 2011 Honda CR-V is going to require Thule Podium Roof Mounted Foot Pack, # TH460, and Thule Fit Kit for Podium Style Foot Pack, # THKIT3042. You can still use the same square, 50 inch cross bars, # THLB50, from the 2006 Honda Element. The Tracker II feet will not fit the CR-V. The two separate vehicles have unique roofs and roof rack requirements and in this case, the Tracker feet cannot be used on both. The other option for a 2011 Honda CR-V is a Yakima roof rack.

  • What Thule Roof Rack System Will Fit A 2010 Hyundai Santa Fe And Use Thule Square Load Bars
  • To install the Thule square load bars on your 2010 Hyundai Santa Fe with the flush mounted rails you will need the Thule Fit Kit for Podium Style Foot Pack, part # THKIT3024, and the Thule Podium Roof Mounted Foot Pack for Square Load Bars, part # TH460. On the 2010 Hyundai Santa Fe it is recommended to use the Thule 50 Inch Long Load Bars, part # THLB50. Anytime you are going to haul cargo on the roof of your 2010 Hyundai Santa Fe you will want to check the owners manual or with

  • Will the Thule Podium Foot Pack # TH460 Interfere With Sunroof on 2012 Mazda 5 Grand Touring
  • I spoke with my contact at Thule and they did not have an answer if the sunroof would open with the Thule Podium Roof Mounted Foot Pack, part # TH460, and Thule Fit Kit, part # THKIT3080, installed on a 2012 Mazda 5 Grand Touring. I went out in the warehouse and pulled both Thule parts and put them together to measure what the height of the cross bar would be once installed on your roof. The measurement from the bottom of the foot pack on the fit kit to the bottom of the crossbar is

  • Will Thule Roof Rack Feet from a 2010 Honda Fit Work on a 2013 Honda CR-V
  • Yes, the Thule roof rack feet from your 2010 Honda Fit will fit on a 2013 Honda CR-V. The only roof rack that Thule made for the 2010 Honda Fit was the Traverse roof rack which is also compatible with the 2013 CR-V with no existing roof rails. If your Thule roof rack feet use the square load bars, then the load bars are compatible between the two vehicles as well since they both require 50 inch square bars. If your roof rack feet use the Thule AeroBlade load bars, then you will need

  • Roof Rack And Fairing Recommendation For 2012 Mazda 5
  • The Thule roof rack system is a fit for your 2012 Mazda 5. There are no air deflectors included in the roof rack kit. These can be purchased separately. The roof rack kit has three components in the system. The 50 inch crossbars, part # THLB50, are made of galvanized steel and have a plastic coating that prevents corrosion and provides a cushion for your cargo. The Thule Podium Roof Mounted Foot Pack, part # TH460, mounts to the roof with pre-installed fixpoints, and required no drilling

  • Roof or Trailer Hitch Mount Bike Racks for Adventurer Folding Bikes on 2012 Honda Civic Sedan
  • For the Adventurer folding bikes if you want to go with a roof mount I recommend using roof mount bike racks that hold the bikes at the tires right in front of the front fender. First you will need a roof rack. The most economical is a Rhino-Rack roof rack made up of the following parts: 2500 Series Roof Rack with Euro Square Crossbars, # DS126B Custom DK Clamps and Pads, # DK319 Then you could use 2 of the Thule Sidearm bike racks, # TH594XT.

  • Is the Thule Podium Foot Pack and Fit Kit Available Separately for the 2011 Audi A4 Avant
  • The Thule Podium Foot Pack and Fit Kit are available separately for your 2011 Audi A4 Avant. For the Foot Pack, you will want to order part # TH460. For the Fit Kit you will want part # THKIT4007. Thule recommends using their 50 inch crossbars, # THLB50, so you will want to measure your crossbars to make sure they are long enough. It is okay if they are longer than 50 inches, they will just hang out farther from the sides of the roof. If they are significantly longer, I recommend purchasing

  • Foot Pack That Will Work On 2011 BMW 328 4-Door
  • I am going to need some more information from you to be able to make a recommendation. Can you tell me the kind of crossbars you have that you want to use and the length. If these were used on another vehicle, the length of the bar is important and you want to make sure they will fit on your BMW. Also, if you can tell me the make and model of the rack the crossbars came from I can probably find the feet that would work for your 2011 BMW 328. Also, if you tell me what the roof-style

  • Availability of Roof Cargo Carriers To Fit On 2004 Mazda 3 Sedan With Thule Roof Rack
  • The Thule Podium Foot Pack, part # TH460, will use square crossbars and the Thule Podium Foot Pack For Aero Bars, part # TH460R, will use aero design crossbars. Both styles of these towers will accept any of the Thule roof cargo carriers on your 2004 Mazda 3 Sedan. Many of the other brands of cargo carriers (Yakima, SportRack) are also designed to fit on square and aero design crossbars. The Sears X Cargo Carrier is made by Thule so it should also attach to the two different Thule towers

  • Roof Rack Recommendation for a 2012 Mazda 5
  • The plastic covers on your 2012 Mazda 5 will just pop out and you can remove them with your hands. In the event one should be difficult, you can use a narrow tool such as a flat screwdriver to pop it off but you will want to be very careful not to scratch or dent the vehicle if you must use a tool. The covers will not be put back on as long as the roof rack is installed on the vehicle. Make sure that you save the covers should you want to remove the rack. The Thule rack is a good

  • Weight Capacity of Roof Rack on a 2004 Hyundai Santa Fe Carrying Two Kayaks
  • My wife and I just bought a 2004 Hyundai Santa Fe that has the factory rails that run front to back. The limit of those is 75 pounds just like on yours, and I remember thinking, wow, that is not very much. Adding cross bars will not increase the capacity of the rails even if the cross bars themselves might be able to carry more weight. Even if this is the case, you will still be limited to the 75 pounds. If you were to add the recommended cross bars, # Y00408, and the Towers, # Y00138,

  • Thule Roof Rack for a 2004 Toyota Tacoma Double Cab
  • The Thule Traverse Roof Rack with the square crossbars, # THLB50, Traverse Foot Pack, # TH480 and Fit Kit, # THKIT1064, will fit your 2004 Toyota Tacoma Double Cab as long as it has a bare roof. A bare roof will not have a factory roof rack or side rails. At this time there are no roof rack fits for models with factory side rails. The Thule Traverse roof rack has a maximum weight capacity of 165 lbs. I strongly recommend checking your owners manual or with your local Toyota dealer to

  • What Roof Rack for 2014 Honda CR-V with Factory Side Rails Can Use 72-Inch Thule Square Load Bars
  • The width of your 2014 Honda CR-V measured from the outside edges of the two side mirrors is 71 inches. For safety reasons it is not recommended to use crossbars that are substantially wider than the roof line itself. If you were to mount your 72-inch Thule square load bars onto compatible rack feet the crossbars would extend out from each side of the roof enough to pose a potential hazard. The longest crossbars recommended for your CR-V are 50-inches but since it is possible to cut

  • Kayak Carriers for a 2008 Subaru Outback Wagon with Factory Roof Rack
  • The 100 pound capacity on the 2008 Subaru Outback Wagon most likely refers to the system as a whole. In all probability they took the lowest rated component in the system, either the roof, the side rails, or the crossbars, and went by that rating for the whole system. You may be able to find the capacity of each separate component in the owners manual or by contacting a dealership. But even if you were to add different crossbars like the Thule Load Bars, # THLB50, Thule still states

  • Will Thule Square Load Bars Fit a 2003 Honda Civic and Accept T-Slot Bike Rack
  • The Thule load bars can fit your Civic with the correct foot pack and fit kit, but the crossbars on this roof rack do not have the T-slots that accept the T-slot accessories. This roof rack uses square crossbars that will accept most clamp on roof rack accessories. If you are needing a roof rack that uses crossbars with T-slots I would recommend the Rhino Rack 2500 Series Roof Rack with Aero Crossbars, part # DA118B, and the Rhino Rack Custom DK Clamps, part # DK009.

  • Recommendation for Kayak Carrier for 2010 Honda CR-V
  • I spoke with my contacts at Thule and Yakima and both said their kayak carriers max out at 75 pounds. Since you have an 84 pound kayak that is 14-1/2 feet long I recommend going with the Universal Foam Block Rooftop Kayak Carrier # Y04053. These are cost effective and come with bow and stern tie downs to secure the kayak to your vehicle. This carrier works with naked roofs so you will not need a roof rack. You will want to consult the owner's manual for your Honda CR-V to make sure

  • We do have some options for you to be able to carry 4 bikes on your 2014 Volkswagen Jetta SportWagen, but due to the towing capacity of your vehicle they cannot be carried on a 4-bike hitch mounted carrier. You will want to check the owner's manual or with the dealership to see what the towing and tongue weight capacities are for your SportWagen.

Once installed this system's square steel crossbars will be 34-inches apart.

Current pricing can be seen below. If you have a different brand of bars let me know what you have and I can determine the parts you will need. Thule is the only manufacturer than has exactly 50 inch bars for a naked roof 2013 Mazda CX-5. Other systems have longer or shorter bars depending on the system.

The foot pack for your E36 sedan is part # TH480. The fit kit required depends on the version of the vehicle you have. If you have the 2-door you will use kit # THKIT1015.

I recommend a Thule square bar roof rack for your 2011 Mitsubishi Outlander ES. You will need load bars # THLB50, and Crossroad foot pack # TH450.

I already had an "older" Thule roof/bike rack, purchased for a 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee, then used on a 2010 Hyundai Elantra Touring (this was the roof rack with the "strapped-on to roof rails" feet, and the bike carriers with the cantilevered, front fork-secured, mechanism). My new 2013 Hyundai Elantra GT does NOT have roof rails, thus the need for this new Thule package consisting of: 1) TH460 - Thule Podium Roof Mounted Foot Pack for Square Load Bars, 2) THKIT3068 - Thule Fit Kit for Podium Syle Foot Pack and 3) THLB50 - Thule Square Load Bars - Steel - 50" - Qty 2. MY plan was to "re-use" the pair of "older" Thule bike carriers. Etrailer's online info was excellent. The installation videos (although not for this identical package on the same vehicle as mine - but the 2012 Honda CRV's roof-mounting system is very close to the Hyundai's) were even MORE excellent! The box arrived on-time. The components were all there, and undamaged. The installation instructions were clear and concise... even for these 67 year-old eyes/mind! My "older" Thule bike carriers fit PERFECTLY... the new load bars are identical to my old ones (the only reason I needed new ones was I'd "cut down" the old ones when I moved the rack from the Grand Cherokee to the Elantra Touring, and now they were ~2" too short!!!). We tow the car behind our motorhome and we've found the Thule roof-mounted products to be excellent for our needs... holding up to three bikes on the top of our "dinghy". Dealing with the folks at Etrailer.com was a very pleasant experience! 100577

Got our order for this roof rack system and CRV fit kit in a timely manner and even had the etrailer team contact us both when there was a small delay on our fit kit coming in as well as when everything actually shipped out! Assembly was super easy and straight forward. The husband worked on prepping the car while I assembled the bars to the towers and then we worked together to affix everything to the car. All in all, it took us maybe 30 minutes to complete installation. Doing it alone might take 45 and is very doable. The pieces to the podium are all taped together and some of them can fall out if you're just pulling tape off and not paying attention. Not a big deal, but make sure you pay attention to where they are so you can put them back in correctly if they do. My only gripe would be the actual footers on the fit kit. The plastic pieces looked like they were supposed to snap in somewhere but just wiggled around in the mounting gaps until we actually tightened them down. They also seemed to be a bit of an awkward fit on the existing plastic rails, but again, once tightened look fine. I was slightly worried they would crack when tightening just because the plastic isn't very thick, but no problems so far! We're only one week after installation now, but love the look of them on the car, haven't noticed any extra noise while driving, and are excited for the first kayak trip this weekend to actually use them! 133283

You can't beat Thule's fit and finish. I installed this base rack system on my 2011 Mazda 3 five door sport and it took about 25 minuets when it was all said and done (i worked slow). The fit kit mounts the feet nice and flush to the car. Looks great too. There is noticeable wind noise now at highway speeds and normal speeds on a windy day. I may invest in a flaring. That said, anytime you add a rack to your car, there will be noise but it's not that bad. Limited lifetime warrenty, you can't beat that. Etrailer had the best price around and by far the best customer service. 13456

Hyundai Sante Fe models come with both "raised" factory roof rails, and also "flush" factory roof rails. Coupled with the Thule 50" crossbars, this Thule system attaches very soundly to the "flush" roof rails. Expect some added wind noise while traveling at higher speeds. From a mechanical/structural point of view, this system was easier to install than I had anticipated, and very well built. I installed a Yakima "Load Warrior" cargo basket on top of this roof rack. I expect this system to serve us well through many road trips to come. 11872

Sorry for the slow response. We only installed the crossbars this passed weekend. They were very easy to install, as soon as I took the instructions away from my brother. I think they look very nice on the car, but his wife doesn't like them, so we'll be taking them off and putting them on every time we go kayaking. I have my opinions about that situation which I'll keep to myself. I've attached pics of both a front and a back view. 139636

Great fit, very quick install. Had to order the Fit Kit 3038 for my R350. Only knock is that, for the money, this should include the locks and keys, not just the plastic turn lock. 83705

Good product, but assembly instruction a bit blury and not specific enough. Also there is no quick release for the bar unlike the assembly I had on my Ford Escape. 90465

Worked well with the rest of the system and fits the 2015 BMW X3 as desired and designed. 151548

Easy to install. Don't buy the locks from Thule, in my opinion. 42177
