Video Transcript for Thule Roof Rack Review - 2015 Audi Q7

Today on our 2015 Audi Q7, we'll be test fitting the Thule Aeroblade Edge Roof Rack system, part number TH7602 for the front and rear load bars and part number THKIT4002 for the fit kit. Now as you can see, I've already got the rear load bar in place and the driver's side foot pack in place. Now for right now, I'm going to show you how to assemble the foot pack and then I will show you how to install it on the car. What you want to do is you want to take the two plates here and place them together over the foot pack, food pad, excuse me, just like this. Then you want to take the two bolts to hold them in place. Then you want to come over here to your car, as you can see the car's got a little flange here so you want to go that way first and then push it into place and it should snap right in. Now for the manufacturer, it calls for 24 to 32 inches apart from the load bars, we're going to go with 30 inches today. What you'll do is you'll take out your tape and you want to measure from the center of the load bar to about center there and just line that up, just a rough guess for now, we'll secure that as we tighten them down later.

For now we want to grab our load bar and our Allen key that is included and try to line that up. As you can see, we've got these two holes here, those bolts are going to be threaded right through there. As best you can, try and get those started and they should feed right in once you get them started. Once I get those started nicely, I will run over to the other side and get those started. All right, once we got those caught we can simply just tighten them hand tight and if you can alternate between the two. All right, once we get those halfway tightened, we'll want to check our measurements and since I said likewise, we're going with 30 inches.

We'll go ahead and line that up again and make sure that's a little center so we leave them a little bit loose. All right, I'm going to go ahead and give those a couple more swings of tighten there just to lock it in place. That's feeling pretty good there. Let me go check the measurement on the other side and that will finish those up. All right, center to 30 inches.

That looks like it needs to come a little bit this way. That's looking about right. If you can, like I said before, try to alternate, it can make for a nice tight fit. All right, you've got this screw right here, this is going to help center up our load bars. It's a nice fine adjustment. You'll want to, as you can see, if you can see right here, it's got these gauge numbers here, if you can you want to try to line those up with both sides.

We're looking pretty straight right now so we'll go ahead and tighten those down a little more and it should be pretty solid. Once again, that's going to help center everything up. All right, once we've got those tight, we can go ahead and install our end caps. They should slide right in. All right, now for the other one, same step, should slide right in. All right, that should be about it, that's going to conclude our test fit for our Thule Aeroblade Edge Roof Rack system, part numbers TH7602 for the front and rear bars and part number THKIT4002 for the fit kit, on our 2015 Audi Q7. .

2016 Audi Q5

The Thule Fit Kit I purchased works great - made me able to repurpose my existing roof racks to a new vehicle. As with previous orders, the people at etrailer continue to provide excellent service. 342792

Thule is the only premier cargo accessory manufacture in the industry. The design, manufacturing and quality of their products is world class. We currently own two German SUVs that are used regularly for a wide array of outdoor sports and refuse to outfit our vehicles with any other brand of equipment. This particular system was very easy to install when following manufacturers installation instructions and recommendations. 323664

Audi Q7

I ordered a Thule roof rack for my wife's Audi Q7. It arrived the next day and it was the right rack. Every car is different and I was concerned it might not be the right rack system. Not only was it perfect, it was very easy to install and my wife is happy! If Momma ain't happy, ain't nobody happy. I will gladly order from etrailer again! 155747

Do you have a question about this Roof Rack?

  • Does Thule Hullavator TH897XT Require Adapter to Use With AeroBlade Load Bars on 2011 Audi Q5?
  • No type of adapter will be necessary to use the Thule Hullavator TH897XT, or the newer model # TH898 with AeroBlade Load Bars, as they will fit into the channels of those bars. For your 2011 Audi Q5 you can install the Thule WingBar Crossbars # TH711220 (Black) or # TH711200 (Silver) with a couple of other parts. You will also need the Thule Podium Foot Pack for Aero Bars # TH460R and Thule Fit Kit # THKIT4002. I also strongly recommend using the Thule One-Key System Lock Cylinders...

  • Crossbar Spread of 2011 Audi Q5 for Picking Out Roof Cargo Basket
  • We have roof racks that fit your 2011 Audi Q5's factory fixed mounting points like the Thule AeroBlade Edge Roof Rack # TH7603B-TH7603B and # THKIT4002 which has a crossbar spread of 24 inches. That would mean that the factory spread of your current crossbars is also 24 inches. The Rhino Rack cargo basket part # RRRMCB03 that you mentioned does fit a crossbar spread of 24 inches so it would fit and work well for you in that regard. I attached a review video for this basket for more info...

  • Thule Fit Kit for 2011 Audi Q7 with Flush Mounted Rails
  • The fit kit you need for your 2011 Audi Q7 with flush-mounted rails is the Thule Fit Kit for Podium Style Foot Pack # THKIT4002. This will work with your Thule Podium Foot Pack # TH460R for both the discontinued Thule AeroBlade crossbars like your THARB47 and the new Thule WingBar Evo Crossbars # TH711220 (Black) and # TH711200 (Silver).

  • LED Trailer Lights Flickering When Towed by 2015 Audi Q7
  • Since Adapter # TR20141 did not work to stop the flickering of your trailer's LED lights, what you need to do is install Load Resistors # P230004A or # P230004A-2 for a quantity of two. You will need one load resistor for each affected circuit.

  • Thule Foot Pack and Fit Kit to Mount AeroBlade Crossbars on 2010 Audi Q5
  • To install the AeroBlade bars onto your 2010 Audi Q5 you are correct, you'll need the # THKIT4002 fit kit. However, you'll also need the correct foot pack, which is not the # TH480R, but the # TH460R instead.

  • Distance Between Thule Roof Rack Crossbars And Roof On 2014 Audi Q7
  • The distance between the crossbars on your 2014 Audi Q7 may vary depending on the type roof rack you install and the height of the side rails on your vehicle. I spoke with my contact at Thule and they told me that the height of the # TH460R that is included in the system you referenced is 1-1/2 to 2 inches. This would not include the height of the crossbars that fit the feet. We have another roof rack option for you. It is the Thule AeroBlade Edge Roof Rack. The height of this foot...

  • Will the Yakima FrontLoader Wheel Mount Bike Rack # Y02103 Fit a 2014 Audi Q5
  • The Yakima FrontLoader Wheel Mount Bike Rack, # Y02103, will fit the factory crossbars of the 2014 Audi Q5, however it does not appear that your Q5 has crossbars in the photo you provided. If your Q5 does not have crossbars, I recommend adding the Thule AeroBlade Edge roof rack, # TH7603-TH7603, and the Fit Kit, # THKIT4002. The AeroBlade Edge roof rack gives and OEM look and it has aerodynamic crossbars to reduce wind noise and drag. The only other additional parts you may want are...

  • Is there a Low Profile Roof Rack for the 2014 Audi Q7 with Factory Flush Side Rails
  • There is an AeroBlade Edge system for the 2014 Audi Q7 but because it requires a special foot to clamp around the flush side rails on the vehicle it will not be as low as what you are looking for. None of the available systems, see link, are going to drop as low as you are wanting. Most of them are at about the same height to the tops of the bars. The AeroBlade system is going to be the most low profile. It is made of the following parts: # TH7602-TH7602 and fit kit # THKIT4002.

  • How to Determine Proper Mounting Location for Thule AeroBlade Edge Roof Rack on 2013 Audi Q7
  • You are correct that the Thule Fit Kit # THKIT4002 foot packs should be placed at the indents on the flush rails on your 2013 Audi Q7. My technical contact at Thule informed me that sometimes the flush rails are a bit thicker at the front of the vehicle which does raise your rail a bit. She said it is typically less than an inch. She also told me that your vehicle has been tested with the AeroBlade Edge Crossbar # TH7602 and she believes your installation is correct. We discussed...

  • Will Thule Sidekick # TH682 Fit 2014 Audi Q5 TDI
  • If you have the factory installed side rails and crossbars on your 2014 Audi Q5 TDI, you can take a couple of measurements to make certain you find a cargo box that will not interfere with the rear hatch opening. you will want to measure from the center of the front crossbar rearward to the gap between the roof and the rear hatch. That will give you the front clearance. The Thule Sidekick, part # TH682, has a front clearance measurement of 36 inches. The minimum spacing between the...

  • Recommended Thule Roof Rack For 2015 Audi Q5 With Factory Flush Rails
  • On your 2015 Audi Q5, the roof rack I recommend that is probably the most low profile is the Thule AeroBlade Edge roof rack. This consists of the Thule AeroBlade Edge Roof Rack - Fixed Mounting Points/Flush, Factory Side Rails - Aluminum - Black # TH7603B-TH7603B along with the Fit Kit # THKIT4002. I also recommend the lock cylinders # TH450400. The crossbars are also available in silver if you prefer and that is part # TH7603-TH7603 to be used with the same fit kit. It is not suggested...

  • Roof Mount Bike Rack Recommendations for a 2014 Audi Q5 TDI
  • We have an excellent bike rack selection for your 2014 Audi Q5 TDI. We can start with the roof mount bike racks. If your Q5 has the factory roof rack with crossbars, I recommend the Thule UpRide Bike Rack, # TH599000. This is a wheel mount bike rack that does not touch the frame of your bike at all and it does not require you to remove the wheel each time you want to carry your bike. You can also add the Thule One-Key System, # TH450200, to add keyed locks to the bike racks to lock the...

  • Recommended 4 Bike Rack and Cargo Box for 2009 Audi Q5
  • If your Audi Q5 has a roof rack with crossbars that measure 4 inches or less in diameter that can be adjusted so that they are 25-7/8, 27-7/8, or 29-7/8 inches apart, the SportRack Vista XL Cargo Box, part # SR7018 would work well for you. The Vista XL is a sturdy box that is bargain priced. The box will offer some water resistance, but we recommend any items placed in it be placed in plastic to provide additional protection. If your Q5 is not equipped with crossbars, they can be...

  • Roof Rack, Bike Rack and Ski Rack Recommendation for Roof of 2014 Audi Q5
  • The AeroBlade Edge roof rack, # TH7603-TH7603, with fit kit # THKIT4002 that you referenced has been confirmed to fit the roof of your 2014 Audi Q5 so it would be a great option for you as long as you don't have a factory roof rack with crossbars already. I was confused by what you meant by factory sport rack, but if you meant roof rack with crossbars this wouldn't work for you. For a bike rack for the one side of your roof you could go with the Thule Sidearm part # TH599000, and then...

  • Will a Thule 3028 BMW fit kit work with OEM roof rack from an 2009 Audi Q7?
  • We do carry a Thule fit kit that will work with Thule Podium feet, # TH460R, that fit the 2009 Audi Q7. However, Thule kit # THKIT3028 is not compatible on the Audi Q7.

  • Are Additional Components Needed for Thule AeroBlade Edge Roof Rack on 2007 Audi Q7

This is a complete rack system. However, as you note locks are not included but instead offered as an option. The lock kit is part # TH450400 and this includes 4 lock cylinders and two keys, plus a universal control key for installation and removal of the locks. If you will use any...
