Thule Paceline Roof Bike Rack Installation - 2009 Acura MDX

Today on our 2009 Acura MDX, well be test fitting the Thule Paceline Roof Mounted Bike Rack, part number TH527. Now our Acura has a factory roof rack, so well begin our test fit by simply placing the bike rack up onto the vehicles crossbars. We need to lift it up, both cam action levers at the front of the rack, so that we can position the L-bracket on the underside of the front bar. Now there are three settings here where you can set the L-bracket to fit the thickness of your crossbar. I set it to about the second notch. Once we tighten that down a little bit, well then close down both cam action levers and move to the back of the bike rack. Ill loosen up two of the wing nuts so that I can position the bracket around the underside of the rear bar.



Thule Circuit Roof Bike Rack Installation - 2009 Acura MDX

Today our 2009 Acura MDX we'll be test fitting the Thule Circuit Roof Mounted Bike Rack part number TH526.

Keep in mind that you will need to remove the skewer before operating the cam action lever. I'll lift up the cam action lever and position the L bracket on the underside of the bar. Now because the thickness of the bar is kind of thin, I'm going to put the setting on the smallest setting of the L bracket. I'll insert the T bolt into the slot of the L bracket. Before I clamp down the cam action lever I'm going to move to the rear, remove one of the wing nuts so that I can position the rubber-coated black plate around the under side of the rear bar. I'll insert the bolt through the whole in the plate, reinstall the wing nut and then tighten everything down.

We'll loosen up the black wing nut and remove the silver T bolt from the slot in the bracket so I can position the bracket around the rear bar. With the bracket in place, I can reinsert the silver T bolt into the slot of the bracket and tighten down the black wing nut to secure it.
