With the front secure, we'll replace our cover, then we'll move to our rear clamp.





Honda Civic Questions

  • All three of these platform bike racks are very similar when compared to one another. There are some differences though that I will outline to give you a better idea of what each has to offer and what might work best on your 2007 Honda Civic. To start with, all carriers can carry two bikes, but they all have a different overall capacity in terms of weight. The Swagman XTC-2, # S64670, has a capacity of 35 pounds per bike, or 70 pounds total. The Swagman 2 Bike Carrier, # S64650,...

  • Starting with a trailer hitch mount, it is the most stable way to carry bikes on a vehicle. It is also easy to load and unload the bikes when compared to a roof rack set up. There are many bike racks available but on a 2003 Honda Civic sedan you are limited to carrying 2 bikes at most because all of the hitches available for the vehicle, see link, are Class I hitches that can only support 2 bikes. For this set up you would need to buy a hitch and a bike rack. On a trunk mount,...

  • When equipment is installed on the roof of a vehicle, wind noise will occur. It is unavoidable, but you can do certain things to minimize the noise. The round bars used with the Yakima rack system you mentioned can be quieted to some degree by using a fairing like part # Y07049. Keep in mind, the fairing will help streamline the rack itself, but whatever is placed on the crossbars like a cargo basket, box or ski rack will cause further turbulence and therefore noise. Using...

  • The roof rack I recommend for you is the Yakima JetStream Roof Rack with 60 Inch Long JetStream Bars # Y00426, BaseLine Towers # Y00146, Fit Kit # Y06125 for the front bar, and Fit Kit # Y06143 for the rear bar. The JetStream crossbars feature an aerodynamic shape to help minimalize wind noise and keep the ride quieter than racks that use more traditional round or square crossbars. This rack is designed to fit your Civic coupe and will mount in the door well for both the front...

  • I spoke with my contact at Optronics and was informed that the Lumen Difference between the # STL22RB and the # STL72RB LED tail lights is not tested by Optronics. I was told though that the more LED lights that are in the tail light the brighter the light will be whether the description says super diode or not. I have personally installed the Sealed, 6-1/2 inch Oval LED Trailer Stop, Turn and Tail Light, 10 Super Diode, item # STL72RB, on a CornPro 24 foot car hauler and...

  • I did some digging and found that the Curt trailer hitch # C11391 does fit the 2013 Honda Civic Sedan si model so you can use it. I have included a link to the installation instructions for you. If you will be using the hitch for something like a bike rack or cargo carrier you will need to make sure that the accessory is rated for use on a Class I trailer hitch. Class I trailer hitches are limited to 2 bikes maximum. Curt recommends the use of a stabilization strap, # 18050,...

  • If your 2016 Civic is a 4 Door sedan model, Thule has a roof rack available, which would consist of the following parts: For a square bar roof rack: 50 Inch Load Bars, part # THLB50 Foot Pack, part # TH480 Vehicle Specific Fit Kit, part # THKIT1797 For the more aerodynamic AeroBlade bars: 53 Inch AeroBlade Load Bar, part # THARB53 Foot Pack, part # TH480R Fit Kit, part # THKIT1797 Thule is still working on fits for the Civic Coupe.

  • While there are people that flat tow the 2012 Honda Civic automatic, I have found that Honda states that the vehicle should not be flat towed. You will want to consult the owners manual to verify the flat tow-ability of the vehicle. If the owners manual says not to then I do not recommend going against what Honda says. If you find that the vehicle can be flat towed then there are 5 items you will need: base plates, tow bar, safety cables, lighting, and supplemental braking....

  • I contacted our representative at Hidden Hitch about the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch, part # 24677. The representative at Draw-Tite informed me that the thickness of the tubing for part # 24677 is 3/16 inches. The arms of the hitch that connect to the frame of the vehicle are 1/2 inch thick. This is a Class I hitch and is intended for light duty use as it has a tongue weight capacity of 200 lbs. Part # 24677 does not include a drawbar. If you plan to do light towing, you may...

  • The Draw-Tite Class I hitch that fits your 2012 Honda Civic sedan, part # 24763, is made in Mexico. This is not at all uncommon for lighter-duty hitches like this. Curt offers their own Class I hitch, part # C11391, that is USA-made and which includes a pin and clip. Note that if used with any non-trailer load, say a bike rack or cargo carrier, Curt requires you to use their stabilizing strap # 18050 which is not a requirement for the Draw-Tite. If you like you can order...

  • For your 2016 Honda Civic Touring I recommend Draw-Tite hitch # 24937 which is listed as a fit for all styles of the 2016 Civic. If you plan on doing any towing the proper ball mount to use is # 3593. For a 1-7/8 inch ball use # 19256 and for a 2 inch ball use # 19258. And for trailer wiring you can use # 119179KIT to add a 4-Way flat connector to the rear of the vehicle. If you want to use the hitch for an accessory such as a bike rack or cargo carrier then you have to...

  • The Yakima KingJoe Pro, part # Y02624 would be an excellent choice for your 2008 Civic. The KingJoe Pro is very easy to use, and actually looks good on the back of a vehicle. Keep in mind that the rack has a 70 lb weight capacity. I will provide a link to the install instructions as well as a link to a product demonstration video

  • Draw Tite and Hidden Hitch are both the exact same brand. They were both made by the same parent company Cequent. Hidden Hitch was recently discontinued so you would want the Draw Tite Hitch part # 24706 which is a confirmed fit if you have a non-Si model. If you have an Si model you would instead want the # 24719.

  • If you use the # HT02 adapter to convert a Yakima Holdup 2 Bike Rack # Y02445 designed for 1-1/4 inch hitches so that it can be used in a 2 inch hitch you would not reduce the capacity of the rack. You would be able to carry 2 bikes with the setup still.

  • The bike rack that I would choose for your 2013 Honda Civic sedan is the Thule Gateway 2 Bike Rack, # TH9006XT. This bike rack uses support pads with a flattened surface that will make better contact with your trunk over the round pads on the Passage bike rack. The Gateway bike rack uses molded rubber pads that will last longer than the soft rubber pads of the Passage bike rack. If you will be keeping the bike rack attached to your vehicle for extended periods of time, it is...

  • There are two alternatives, either of which would work fine for a bike rack carrying up to 2 bikes. The Curt Class I # C11604 is the most expensive option, and you'd need to use a stabilizing strap # 18050 for the bike rack, in order to meet Curt's warranty stipulations. The good news is that this is the easier to install option. On a scale of 1 to 10, it's rated as a 4. I've linked the installation instructions for you to look over. The Draw-Tite Class I, part # 24937 is...
