Today on this 2011 Ford Crown Victoria were going to do a test fit of a Yakima Quickpack II trunk mounted rack, part number Y02621. This bicycle rack has an integrated knob that adjusts to a telescoping base to make for the best fit on your vehicle. Theres also a side knob that repositions the angles of the arms to give you more adjustment. All the attachment points that touch the car are tri-padded and have padded buckles to protect the vehicle paint. Well go ahead and get started. Well start off by putting the bicycle rack on the trunk and taking the security strap and pushing it between the trunk lid and back glass so it goes to the inside.
After the install of the security strap into the trunk area well take the two straps for the top and run those to the top edge of the trunk lid. Well do that to hold the bike rack in place while we straighten out the rest of the straps for our bicycle rack and route them. We also want to make sure that the pads are sitting square on the trunk lid and by the license plate area as well. Well move on the straps that are labeled bottom. Well run those underneath the edge of the trunk lid and to some holes that are on the inside of the trunk lid.
Keep tension on those bottom straps and well take the other straps labeled side and well run those to the edge of the trunk next to the taillights. Then well take that strap and snug it down to keep everything in place. Do a few minor adjustments to make sure its sitting on the trunk lid where you need it to. Then you go ahead and snug down the straps. Once we have it secure we can go ahead and tie up the straps with the included holders.
Then you have to give one final look around and maybe give the straps one final tug to make sure theyre snug, then we go ahead and load up the bike. Well slide our bike over the cradles and well go ahead and attach the straps to the top tube and then well attach our strap from the anti-sway part of the cradle around the seat tube of the bike. We ended up with the bike at a little bit of on angle on the bicycle rack, which is fine. That keeps it from any contact with the bike and the bicycle rack. With that that will finish it for our test fit of part number Y0261 from Yakima, the Quickpack II truck mounted bicycle rack on this 2011 Ford Crown Victoria.
Today on our 2011 Ford Crown Victoria, we will be test fitting the Yakima King Joe 2 bike rack. Before beginning it is a good idea to apply a thick coat of wax to the surface of the trunk, to prevent scratches or minor blemishes in the pain. Included in the instructions that are given to you with the purchase of the bike rack will be a fit instruction. We have already predetermined the positioning of this bike rack to the trunk lid of this Crown Victoria, to do that just refer to the instructions that come with the bike rack. Okay what were going to do first is to sit the bike rack up on the front and secure the front to our top straps to the top of the deck lid. We will secure the side strap near the taillight; we will secure the lower strap on the medal lid on the inside of the trunk lid.
All right. On its 2011 Ford Crown Victoria, we're going to do a test of part number TH9006 from Thule. This is our Gateway 2 Rear Mounted Bike Rack. We're going to start off with bicycle rack already adjusted according to manufacturer's instructions for this particular car. Before we start our test, we want to make sure that we put a coat of wax over the paint so it helps protect the car. We'll set our bike rack into place.
Today, on a 2011 Ford Crown Victoria we're going to do a test fit of the Thule Bike Rack, product number TH9009. This is their Archway Bicycle Rack. This bike rack will fit a variety of vehicles. We already have it configured to the manufacturer's instructions for our Crown Victoria. Alright, before we put our bicycle rack on the car, it's a good idea to clean up the car first, maybe a coat of wax to help protect the finish when we put the bike rack on. We'll go ahead and put the bike rack on to the trunk.
