We're going to go ahead and start here underneath the hood of the vehicle. We're going to need to gain access to the underside of this fuse box and we need to hook up our wire. Now, this particular truck does not have the 12-volt power supply of the 7-way hot yet. That's the reason why we're going to need to get into this fuse box.

Now, it has different movement here to accommodate many different style and size mirrors. We also have two straps here that are adjustable. They can be shortened or pulled out longer depending on your mirror. The head of the mirror itself pivots, so it's adjustable in many different angles.

We'll remove the plastic nut and then the cover. Located on the top row, second set of connection pins from the left will be a direct fit plug for our Tekonsha plug-in wiring adapter. While I plug into it, we'll start routing the wire over to our brake controller location, which will be towards the center of the vehicle just to the right of the gas pedal.
Thule Traverse Roof Rack Installation - 2003 GMC Sierra
Today we are going to review part number TH480 from Thule. This is Thules traverse foot pack. And we will also be using fit kit part number THKIT1522. And the cross bars we will be using on this demonstration will be THLB58. Those are sold separately. And we will be taking these parts and will be installing these on a 2003 GMC Sierra extended cab pickup truck. We have our parts here laid out with just one end of the bar so you will not get confused. We will flip the whole assembly over so you can see it easier. We are going to start off with our tower here. To slide it onto the bar, what we are going to have to do is loosen this clamp up. So we pull back on this latch right here. Then we can slide our bar in. We will just leave that loose for now. We are going to pop on our little cap. We are going to need to open up this door here. It just snaps open. And while we are here, we will use this tool to tighten down this screw which actually will clamp it down to the car. Then next we will go ahead and install the fit kit itself. 1:00
