Alright, today on this 2011 Volkswagen Jetta were going to do a test fit of the SportRack Aero XL Cargo Box, part number A90275. The car has already been equipped with a Thule Roof Rack System with the square load bars. Ok, a couple of quick notes about this cargo carrier is that it is designed to mount between crossbars or between 24 and 34 inches, and the maximum bar diameter will be 4 inches. We'll go ahead and start our test fit by taking the box and putting it on top of the cross rails. We'll take a few seconds to line up the holes and the cargo box to match the crossbars. Now you have a little bit adjustment from front to rear and of course you can move it left to right.
Now you can also move it to one side or the other if you want to add something to the side such as a bicycle rack. In this case we're going to center it on top of the car. Once we have it in place we'll go ahead and install the hardware. So we have two plates, bigger of the two plates will fit between the cargo box and the roof rack. And inside the cargo box is the smaller of the two plates will be installed.
And then our U bolt will fit from the bottom up. Ok, with our hardware loosely installed, we'll go ahead and install our three remaining fasteners. Ok, with all the hardware loosely installed we can go ahead and make a few adjustments in case it moved while we're doing that, then we go ahead and tighten them down. Ok, and that's what it takes to mount up our cargo box to the roof rack. Now we can go ahead and load up the gear and then close the lid.
Ok, with that that will finish it for our test fit of part number A90275 from SportRack on our 2011 Volkswagen Jetta.
Today with our 2012 Volkswagen Jetta were going to be test fitting the Yakima Load Warrior Roof Mounted Cargo Basket, part number Y07070. We already have our basket put together and now were ready to fit it up on top of our vehicle. First well take the basket and lay it up on top of our crossbars. Then well position it and make sure its even from left to right. Once weve done that we can we swing our hardware around and use the included T bolt and wing nut to tighten the clamps to our crossbars. With the clams tight, were ready to load our basket and hit the road.
Alright, today, on this 2011 Volkswagen Jetta were going to do a test fit of part #: y07070 from Yakima, the Load Warrior roof cargo basket. Okay, now our Jetta has already been equipped with a roof rack system with elliptical bars and as for a reference point our centers of the bars are going to be 27 and 9/16. Okay, were going to start off our test fit with the basket already assembled. We just got to place it on the roof rack, get it centered the way we wand and then we can go ahead and install the hardware. Once we get it roughly into position, well go ahead and loosely install the hardware and then make some final adjustments. And thats what it takes to install the basket on a roof rack.
Today on this 2011 Volkswagen Jetta, we're going to do a test fit of part number 59504 from Rola. This is the Rola Roof Mounted Cargo Basket. Now, our Jetta already has a roof rack installed on the vehicle with the elliptical bars and we have our roof basket already assembled according to instructions so what I'm going to do is just place it on the roof and install the hardware. We'll take a few seconds to make sure that the roof basket is centered on the roof rack and that the mounting pads are moved into position that we can easily attach the hardware. Our hardware is a clamp that goes through the bottom of the roof basket and basically a U-Bolt that goes underneath the crossbar. One down and three to go, we'll repeat the same process.
