Video Transcript for Thule Roof Rack 852-4498-001 Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the replacement bottom channel cover for Thule AeroBlade Load Bars. This unit replaces a lost or damaged lower cover strip on your Thule AeroBlade load bar to ensure it remains ultra quiet on your roof. The rubber strip seals the bottom of the bar to eliminate noise caused by an open channel. It fits THARB43, THARB47, THARB53, and THARB60 load bars. It's going to measure, overall length, about 14-1/4" long, and when you install this it can be cut and trimmed to best fit your bar. So this is the channel that we'd want to fill. Of course you're going to have your measuring device there.

Then you're going to have your foot pack, so, you will need to cut and trim this. I just wanted to go ahead and install as much of it as I could, or as much of it as I can. That way I can give you a good understand of what type of seal it creates. A couple different ways you can get this in there. You can place it through the end, and just feed it in. It's also an option just to line up the strip with the slot in the bar, and then just kind of press fit it into place.

Just like that. Of course you can trim, cut as needed. I just wanted you to see that it does create a nice tight seal. This is an exact replacement with the original ones that came with your load bars. That's going to do it for today's look at the replacement bottom channel cover for the Thule AeroBlade Load Bars..

I have a roof rack purchased from Mitsubishi and installed myself on a 2017 Outlander. Recently 3 of the 4 rubber strips fell out of the bottom grooves. The dealership did not sell parts for the roof rack. I previously purchased a tow hitch and hitch cargo carrier so I decided to see what etrailer could do. This part fit perfectly. 484178

1 year later - the covers are still holding strong. I saved the extra material for future use but have not needed it so far.

These fit the bottom openings of my older Aero Bars perfectly, helping to cut down on wind noise. 362044

This product fits in the underslot of Thule Rapid Aero bars, where the feet slide into the slot on the underside. I bought it to reduce noise while driving, but it didn't really help much. The noise isn't bad but didn't change. Still has a small whistle that I can only hear with the windows down. ETrailer sent them promptly and no complaints there. 151009
