Can QM3 Mounting Kit be Used with Old Style Thule Mountaineer for OEM Bars on 2018 Audi Q7

Question:

Would this fit on a 2018 Audi Q7 with factory roof base bars? If not is there a kit to modify so it would fit? The Old style Thule Mountaineer box uses the plates with wing nuts and carriage bolts

Yup! The Replacement QM3 - Quick Mount Hardware # TH04997 is exactly what you need to mount your Mountaineer cargo box to the OEM roof rack on your 2018 Audi Q7.

Thanks Jon - I was worried about the width of the Mountaineer mounting points and the bar spacing on the Audi. Can you move the brackets in the cargo box to get more space between them? Also can I buy the parts above separately?

If the Mountaineer has tracks then yes they can be moved. If it doesn't, then you could still possibly mount them elsewhere but you'd need to drill into your box. Some of the parts in the QM3 Kit # TH04997 can be pieced out. You can find those parts under the "Replacement Parts" section of that product page.
