Today on our 2012 Acura TL well be installing the Yakima Q Towers Roof Rack System using part numbers Y00408, Y007716, Y00732 and Y00124. Now weve already pre set-up our roof rack system according to the instructions found within the Q clips four our Q towers. So were ready to go ahead and fit it to the vehicle. Now to begin our test fit, well need to open all four doors on the vehicle as the Q towers clamp to the inside of the door opening. Well start with our front crossbar placing it on top of our roof, we can then take a measurement from the edge of the windshield back on a roof 10 inches. This will be the location of the leading edge of our front crossbar towers.
Well do this on both sides of the vehicle. With that done, we can then claim down the towers securing the front crossbar in place. Were now ready to move on to the rear crossbar. For the rear crossbar, again, well send it on top of our roof. Well need to do another measurement.
This measurement will be from the center of the front crossbar to the center of the rear crossbar. Yakima states that this should be 24 inches according to the instructions found within the Q clips packaging. So well go ahead and make our measurement and place the bar in the correct spot. If we can then clamp down the Q towers, searing our rear crossbar to the vehicle and just like that our TL now has a Yakima Roof Rack System. And that completes our test fit of the Yakima Q Towers Roof Rack System part numbers Y00408, Y007716, Y00732 and Y00124 on our 2012 Acura TL..
