Video Transcript for Thule Podium Roof Rack Installation - 2012 Jeep Compass

Alright on this 2012 Jeep Compass we're going to install Thule Roof Rack System. We're using Thule Podium Rof Rack Foot Pack part numbers TH460 and the square load bar is THLB50. We're going to start our test fit with the roof rack already assembled according to instructions and left intentionally loose so we can make some final adjustments once we install it. The first step would be to go ahead and remove the plugs in the factory roof rack. Okay, at this point we can go ahead and set the first cross bar in a place. We will set it loosely in place then line it up on our bolt holes.

Okay then we will go ahead and take a second to make sure they are even from left to right. Then we'll go ahead and install the provided allen bolts from the Thule roof rack into the factory roof rack. One little note about these set screws is that they do go in at a slight angle with the head of hte screw pointing up. With our first cross rail loosely installed we'll go ahead and repeat the same process for the second cross rail. Now we have all the cross rails in place we can go ahead and tighten it down.

First we'll tighten down 2 screws on going towards the top of the tower then we'll go ahead and tighten the two screws at the bottom where the fit kit goes into the factory roof rack. Okay with all our hardware tightened down we can go ahead and install the covers for the foot pack. We just push it in place an then well turn the latch. With the caps in place, that will finish it for a test fit of the Thule Podium Roof Rack System on a 2012 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 the Hyund

  • 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 choice. T

  • 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 3-3/4 inc

  • 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 ment

  • 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 the 53 i

  • 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.

  • 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 f

  • 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, or

  • 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 that on

  • 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.

  • Parts Needed to Install a Roof Rack on a 2000 Audi S4

The 50 inch Square Load Bars, # THLB50, the Traverse Foot Pack, # TH480, and the Fit Kit, # THKIT1019, make up the entire roof rack. The only additional items that you will need are roof mounted accessories. If you are interested in adding a roof bike rack, kayak carrier or cargo box, I would be happy to recommend a product for your needs.

  • Roof Rack Recommendation for a 2011 Kia Sportage

  • 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 your ex

  • Are Slots On Roof Of 2002 Jaguar X-Type Sedan Used To Mount Roof Rack

It attaches to the door jambs of your car and they told me that it does not use the 4 places you referenced in your question. To order this kit you will need to order 3 different numbers. You would order part # THLB50, part # TH480, and part # THKIT1229. This will give you the 50 inch square steel load bars, the foot pack, and the kit that contains the custom-designed mou

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

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

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
