Video Transcript for Thule AeroBlade Traverse Roof Rack Installation - 2017 Hyundai Sonata

Today on our 2017 Hyundai Sonata we'll be taking a look at the Thule Roof Rack System. This is going to consist of part numbers THARB53, those are going to be our Thule Aero Blade Cross Bars. Part number TH480R, that's our Thule Rapid Traverse Foot Pack, and THKIT1818. That's going to be our Thule Fit Kit, for our Traverse Foot Packs. The Thule Roof Rack Kit is an aerodynamic shaped roof rack system that allows you to carry your vehicle accessories on your vehicle's roof. Whether those are bike racks, cargo baskets, or ski and snowboard carriers. It's going to empty up space inside your vehicle to allow you to carry more gear on the outside. The aerodynamic shape as well as the weather strip on the inside of the top helps to reduce wind noise and drag.

This weather strip can actually be removed and cut down to accommodate channel mounted accessories. You would just move the top of your end cap out of the way and you can easily remove the weather strip. The foot pack of this kit easily slides into the channel of our cross bar, has a cover which has the option to lock it which help to prevent theft and tampering of your entire roof rack system. If you open the cover you'll see our included tool that can easily be stored underneath our cover. Both parts of the fit kit, the clamp and the pad, are going to be custom made to your vehicle, so it's going to give you a perfect fit. The cross bars we're using with this kit today are 53" long, but you can purchase cross bars that are longer. Just make sure they don't extend out past your side view mirrors.

The entire kit total has a 165 pound weight capacity, though you do want to check your vehicle's owner's manual to make sure it can withstand that much weight. Instructions are included on how to install this. We'll show you how to do that next. Now everything that you see on our table is included. The only thing we'll need to provide ourselves is a tape measure of some sort. So we have our Thule foot pack here, we've got our fit kit, the clamp, and then the rubber bottom.

We have our end cap for our cross bar, and our included tool. So we have one of our feet on, we're just going to show you how we assemble the other one. I'm going to open up our door here and take our metal clamp and we're just going to secure it so that it's behind this notch here, and it rests behind our bolt as well. Then we'll flip our foot pack over. We want to take the rubber bottom and attach it to this section here. Want to make sure we attach it so that all over the holes are closed, and it's completely tight.

Now we want to open the back door here, and that's going to loosen up our nut, and we're going to slide this into our channel. We already have our scale out, set to 41 as per our Thule guide. You do want to double check that, and you'll get all the measurements and settings in the guide when you purchase your cross bar kit. We're going to set it right up against this notch here, then we'll close this door. Now we're ready to load up our cross bar onto our vehicle. We do want to make sure we open our vehicle doors to start off. So we have our vehicle doors open, we're just going to take our cross bar and set it onto our roof. Now we can grab our cross bar end cap and secure that on now. We'll take our cross bar spread measurement, again this is going to be included in your instructions. We'll do the same thing to the other side, and we can open up these covers and start to tighten this bolt down. I'm going to start off by tightening the bolt down so that it's just snug up against our door frame. Again we'll do the same thing to the other side. Once we're done with that we want to go back and forth, tightening it down evenly to each side so that the cross bar doesn't pull to one side or the other. Once each side is completely tightened down we can close up our covers. Now the great thing about our tool is that we actually have the option to store it inside our foot pack. This can slide in to our bolt, and we close up our cover. We do have the option to put in a metal lock core. If you're going to keep your tool inside your foot pack I would suggest that you get that metal lock core to prevent any theft or tampering. Now we'll close up our doors and we're ready to load up our gear and hit the road. That's going to be our completed look at the Thule Roof Rack Kit for our 2017 Hyundai Sonata.

Ask the Experts about this Thule Roof Rack

Do you have a question about this Roof Rack?


  • Does Thule Aeroblade Roof Rack Fit 2016 Hyundai Sonata with Panoramic Roof
  • For your 2016 Hyundai Sonata with the panoramic sunroof the Thule Aeroblade roof rack part numbers # TH711420, # TH480R, and # THKIT1818 is a confirmed fit and will work well. We confirmed this with Thule. Thule states that you can't open the roof with the rack installed though. Even if you could the crossbars would create enough wind noise that you would want to immediately close the roof. I attached an install video for this rack on a similar 2017 Sonata for you to check out as well.

  • What Length Thule Crossbars Fit on a 2015 Hyundai Sonata
  • Actually the correct Thule SquareBars for your 2015 Hyundai Sonata are the 53 inch bars, part # TH712400. Thule redesigned their roof racks so these are what you need. They still work with the same # TH480R feet and # THKIT1818 fit kit.

  • Roof Rack Fit Kit and Feet Compatible with Older Thule Square Bars for 2016 Hyundai Sonata
  • The Thule Roof-Rack Fit Kit for Traverse Foot Packs # THKIT1818 is compatible with the now discontinued Podium 400 series feet. However, the correct one that Thule recommended for use on your 2016 Hyundai Sonata would have been the # 480 and since that is no longer available, you will not be able to use it. Thule's new Rapid Podium Feet like # TH480R are is not compatible with your first generation Thule square bars as they require the bottom channel to attach. The good news is I do...
