Thule AeroBlade Traverse Roof Rack Installation - 2014 Kia Soul

Today on our 2014 Kia Soul we'll be test fitting the Thule Rapid Traverse Roof Rack System using part numbers THARB53, TH480R, and THKIT1524. We'll begin out test fit by placing the front load bar onto the front of our roof. With the front bar in position, we can measure ten and a half inches from the front part of the glass to the first part of our foot pad. We'll make this measurement on both the passenger and driver's side of the vehicle, which will insure the front bar is perpendicular to the roof of our Kia. Once we have the front bar in position, we can use the included tensioning tool to tighten down the silver bolt on the inside of the feet which will bring the clips up tightly around the roof line. We're going to alternate sides when tightening it down so the bar doesn't favor one side of the vehicle. With this done, we'll go ahead and place the rear bar onto the rear of our roof and measure the load bar spread. The load bar spread is the measurement from the center of the front load bar to the center of the rear load bar and is important when choosing roof rack accessories.
