Alright, today on this 2011 Volkswagen Jetta, we're going to do a test fit of a Rhino Rack Aero Clamp-On Roof Rack, part numbers DA118, the elliptical bars, and a clamp kit, part number DK306. Ok, we're going to start off with our roof rack already assembled according to instructions. We're just got to put it on the roof of the car. We'll start at the first crossbar. We'll put it on top of the roof and measure off from the center of the door sill to the center of the foot pack. Now, let's go by the manufacturer's instructions, but in this case, from the center of the door sill to the center of the roof rack, it's going to be 10-1/4 inches.
Alright, now we can move on to the second crossbar. We'll open up the back doors and place it onto the roof. Now, I'm measuring for the second crossbar. We'll measure off the center of the first crossbar and this measure will be 27-9/16. Ok, with everything in the right spot, we'll go ahead and tighten it down.
We'll use the included tool to tighten down the clamp to the roof line and we'll do it equally on both sides, alternating back and forth. Ok, I just want to go ahead and shut the doors and install the locking covers. With the roof rack installed, we'll give you one more measurement to the added height. Going from the leading edge of the foot pack in front to the very top, we're looking at 5-3/4 inches. And that will finish it for our test of Rhino Roof Rack on our 2011 Volkswagen Jetta..
