Today, we have with us a 2007 Honda Civic Sedan and we're going to be test fitting a Thule Roof Rack System. We'll be using the 58-inch Square Load Bars, part number THLB58, the Traverse Feet, part number TH480, and the Feet Kit for this vehicle, part number THKIT1425. We already have our roof rack assembled according to the instructions so now we're ready to fit it up on the vehicle. The first thing we need to do is open the front passenger and driver's side doors. We'll sit the front bar assembly up on top of the roof and then we can position it. To position the front bar, we need to measure from the edge of the windshield to the leading edge of the Traverse foot on either side.
This measurement needs to be 10-5/8 inches. Once we've done that, we can use the included tools to tighten down the feet and secure them to our roof. With the front bar mounted, we can move on to the rear. Again, we'll open both the rear doors. We'll place the rear bar up on top and to position the rear bar correctly, we'll measure 27-1/2 inches from the center of the front bar to the center of the rear bar.
Well make sure this measurement is the same on both sides. This measurement is also known as the crossbar spread. Take note of this measurement so when you go to choose accessories, you can make sure they'll fit on your roof rack. With the rear bar tightened down, our roof rack is installed and we're ready to start mounting accessories. That's it for our test fit of the Thule Roof Rack System on our 2007 Honda Civic Sedan..
