Video Transcript for Thule WingBar Evo Crossbars Installation - 2013 Volkswagen Jetta

Evangeline: Hi, it's Evangeline from etrailer.com. And today we are looking at our Thule Roof Rack System with the Wing Bar Evo Crossbars, and the Thule Evo clamps here on our 2013 Volkswagen Jetta. If you have a vehicle like this, a 2013 Jetta, you really want to maximize your space, this is a great option, especially since you can only carry a Class I hitch on this car. So if you want to carry more bikes, have more room for items and storage, you can get one of these and really get the most out of your vehicle.So this is especially nice, because it is a custom fit for our vehicle. One of the ways it showed was in the back, this car has a special slot there, and you can see how Thule really designed it to fit into that. And it contours around all the spaces of our car.

So that way, because it does have this nice rubber design to on the clamp foot pads, as well as the clips are contoured with the door, you don't have to worry about it, damaging your vehicle.You see how these Evo clamps are designed to be nice and a bit low profile. They're nice and sturdy. I like this upgraded design from Thule. You can also replace these lock cores over here with Thule Lock Core. So if you want to use their one key system, you can order four different Lock Cores with the same number.

So you just need to use one key to unlock them all. So this is a nice little feature it has here in the towers.As for the Wing Bar Evo Crossbars we have here, it has this nice, sturdy design, and a cool little feature is how you can take off the end cap. It just slides off. And this is to make it a lot easier to attach accessories. So this way you actually don't even need to take off the rubber strip at the top, you can just put them through.

And when they are in place, just lock it into place.Let's talk about weight capacity and dimensions. So this roof rack has a weight capacity of 165 pounds. But I would advise that you check with your owner's manual and just choose whichever is lower of the weight capacities mentioned. This is also a pretty nice low-profile roof rack on your car roof here. So for exact height from the top of our roof to the bottom of the bars is 2-1/4 inches.

So still I guess, a good enough space for mounting accessories, but as for height from top of the roof to the top of the bar, it's 3-1/2.But the good news is with your Jetta, you don't really have to worry about roof clearance compared to other vehicles. Our Jetta here has this nice sun roof here, so if you're worried about, if it comes in contact with the glass, you don't need to worry. It's built around it, and it works really well. One thing you just might consider is if you do have accessories, of course, put a towel on your roof beforehand and make sure it fits within the 2-1/4 inches of space between your bars and the roof.So with all that, let's see how we install this. So for install, I already installed the first one's towards the front. So we can do this one together. The first thing you need to do is to take out the end cap of your bar. Just press that button and pull it out. Like that. And with this out of the way, you can set up your tower. To set up the tower, first take off the cap, and this can just be pulled off. It snapped into place like that.So we have different foot packs and different clips. So make sure you check your manual for which a foot pack matches which clip on which tower. So for this side we have the 97 and the 79 for the clip. So to put this foot pad on, you just pop it on here at the bottom. It's a nice rubber footpad, so you can really feel how sturdy that rubber is as you pop it on. Make sure that the foot packs are pulled flush towards the top of this lever here. There's a bunch of groups that fits around and it lies flat here and the top.Okay, so with that in place, you can then put in your clip and that's really easy to do. You just make sure this end is loosened, so use the included tool to loosen that up. And with it loose, you can then pop this clip in there. So you just put it in, and you have to listen for a click to know that it's seated. So, right there. You can see how you can't pull that out and you know it's in there.So do not put the cap on just yet, because you're going to have to tighten it down when it's on your car. You just need to put them on the bar. So to do so, there's a silver lever here inside, and you need to pull that on each side, which then causes this end to pop out. And with it popping out like that, you can then insert it into your bars. The bar has its own integrated ruler here. So if you follow your fit kit's instruction guide, it will tell you exactly where to put it. Ours says at 35-1/2. So that's what I'm following.With that locked in place, you just need to put the end cap in and we're ready to put it on our vehicle. When putting the bars on your vehicle, I recommend getting a second set of hands just to grab it while it's up there and help you fit it into place. What's cool about this, on our 2013 Volkswagen Jetta, is that in the back, there's grooves inside, there's that little slot, which fits perfectly with our fit kit on the back.So that slot is not there on the front bars, but it's a nice marker for putting the bars on in the back. With this in place, we just start tightening it down. I recommend partially tightening it on one side and then hopping over to the other side and tightening it there. So they're like evenly tightened. And you just have to use the included tools, which torques it down.And once it makes a click sound, you know you're done. So what I like to do is just turn into like clicks twice. So one and two. And with that in place, you know it's a good fit and it works well. Good enough to slam the door on it and you don't have to worry about it. Just put the caps back on your towers, and you're ready to go. So that was a look at our Thule Roof Rack with Wing Bar Evo Crossbars, and Thule Evo claps here on our 2013 Volkswagen Jetta.
