Today on our 2011 Cadillac CTS, we'll be test fitting the Thule trunk bike rack part number TH9001. This is a very simple install requiring no tools. We'll simply set the trunk bike rack up as required by the fit instructions. We'll then secure the two upper cables to the deck led between the rear window and the deck led itself. With the upper cables in place, we'll go ahead and pop the trunk to secure the lower cables onto the deck led and with all the cables in the correct location we can simply tighten it down using the ratcheting crank knobs securing the bike rack to the vehicle. And in just those few easy steps, our bike rack is secured to the vehicle and we're ready to load the bike.
Now all we need to do is to unfold the bike rack swing arm and undo the cradle straps to expose the cradles. Now we'll simply place the bike into the cradles and strap it down to the top bar and the C-post and in just those few easy steps, our bike is loaded and we're ready to hit the road and that does it for part number TH9001, the Thule trunk mounted bike rack on our 2011 cadillac CTS.

Today on our 2011 Cadillac CTS, we'll be test fitting the Yakima Quickback 2 trunk mounted bike rack part number Y02621. With our bike rack preassembled, we will first need to pop the trunk with the trunk pop, we can now simply set the bike rack on top of the deck led. We'll position the rubber bumpers so that the flat part is what makes contact with the deck led itself. A quick tech tip, before installing the bike rack make sure that the deck led is clean and maybe even waxed as this will help to protect the finish of the vehicle while the bike rack is installed. With the bike rack on the deck led, we'll simply attach the top cables to the lip of the deck led between the rear window and the deck led itself with the top tube nylon straps hooked into the deck led, this will hold the bike rack into place. We'll now go ahead and take the lower straps and attach them to the deck led.
