Toyota Matrix Roof Rack Questions and Answers

  • Will Yakima BigStack Kayak Carrier Fit a Rhino-Rack Roof Rack for a 2011 Toyota Matrix
  • Yes the Yakima BigStack kayak carrier # Y04041 will fit the Rhino-Rack roof rack # RRRS482. This rack is easy to put on and take off. The first time installing it will take the longest, but still not very long, and each subsequent time will be exponentially easier until you plateau at the pinnacle of ease. One of the benefits of this type of rack is that it can be installed and removed as needed. Short trips or long it will work well for you. I have also included a link to a video review...

  • Rola Roof Rack Recommendation for a 2010 Toyota Matrix
  • The legs of the Rola Sport Extended Roof Rack part # 59722 are actually sturdier than they look. Most of the internal pieces are metal and that's where it's strength comes from. When installed on a vehicle all four of the legs are part of a system with a 110 lb capacity. For a cargo box to keep your cargo protected you could go with the Thule Force Rooftop Cargo Box # TH624. This box has 13 cubic feet of storage space.

  • Roof Mounted Cargo Basket Recommendation for a 2010 Toyota Matrix With Roof Rack
  • Almost all roof mounted cargo baskets use similar mounting hardware, so they will all involve the same amount of difficulty when it comes to installing and removing. I recommend looking into a lightweight basket if you plan on installing and removing the basket frequently. One cargo box I recommend looking at is the Rhino-Rack Cargo Basket, # RMCB. This basket weighs 31 lbs and the mounting hardware is easy to adjust so you do not have to change the position of your crossbars each time...

  • Rooftop Cargo Carrier for Use With Skis on 2010 Toyota Matrix With Naked roof
  • Cargo carriers come in several varieties, including waterproof soft fabric bags that can mount on a bare roof as well as cargo boxes. In order to install an enclosed cargo box you will first need to have a roof rack on your Matrix. All roof racks for your Matrix can be seen on the link provided. A great cost-effective option from Thule is their Traverse System consisting of parts # THLB50, # TH480 and # THKIT1512. I've linked an installation video for you. With a rack like this in place...

  • Kayak Carrier that is Compatible with the Rola Sport Series Roof Rack on a 2009 Toyota Matirx
  • The Rola Sport Series Roof Rack, # 59721, does not include any hardware for mounting a kayak carrier other than the crossbars for mounting a kayak carrier on. It does include all hardware necessary to install the roof rack on your 2009 Toyota Matrix. If you were interested in carrying two kayaks on this roof rack, then I would recommend taking a look at The Stacker by Thule, # TH830. This kayak carrier has the ability to carry up to 4 kayaks and mounts directly to the crossbars from...

  • Rhino-Rack Roof Rack Options for a 2009 Toyota Matrix with Naked Roof
  • Yes, the Rhino-Rack clamps, # DK185, will fit a 2009 Toyota Matrix. This is only part of the roof rack though and is made to fit on a naked roof (no type of roof rack at all already on the vehicle). There are some options for the remainder of the roof rack. You can use the Vortex bars, # RRVA126B-2 with foot pack # RRRLKVA. There is also a system with square bars, # DS126B. And finally, if you like heavy duty bars use # DH1250S. All of these systems use # DK185 on a 2009 Toyota Matrix.

  • Roof Rack Recommendation for a 2009 Toyota Matrix
  • The only roof rack we sell that is confirmed to fit your 2009 Toyota Matrix that uses the factory attachment points for installation is the Whispbar racks. The only fit Yakima uses for the roundbar setup is Q-towers which don't use the fixed points. So you have two options, either go with the Whispbar rack that will attach to the fixed points part numbers # WB-K453 and # WB-S5. Or go with a Yakima rack that uses Q-towers that will let you possible reuse older components that you have....

  • Recommended Roof Rack Options For 2009 Toyota Matrix With Fixed Mounting Points
  • On a 2009 Toyota Matrix, the only option for a Rhino-Rack roof rack includes the fit kit with the custom clips. I do however have a fixed mounted option for you from Rola.

This system is confirmed to fit your vehicle and has a weight capacity rating of 110 lbs. If you have your heart set on the Rhino-Rack, I recommend the Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero Crossbars...

  • Roof Rack Recommendation for 2006 Toyota Matrix with Naked Roof and No Fixed Points
  • It sounds like your 2007 Toyota Matrix does not have the OEM fixed mounting points for installing the Rola roof rack part # 59721. If the roof did have the fixed points there would be covers in the strip you mentioned that could be removed. Instead you would want the Rhino Rack part numbers # DS126B and # DK062 which has been confirmed as a fit for your vehicle and do not use the fixed points. This rack clamps to the door frame instead.

  • Where are the Fixed Mounting Points to Install a Roof Rack on a 2007 Toyota Matrix
  • You do not remove that whole black strip on either side of the roof to install a roof rack on your 2007 Toyota Matrix. Along that black strip there should be 4 little doors or panels that you will pull off and the fixed mounting points are under those. If your Matrix does not have the fixed mounting points then the Rola roof rack # 59721 or # 59722 will not work. You would need to use a system with a clamp style attachment such as # RRRS423B.

  • Rola Roof Rack for 2007 Toyota Matrix
  • The correct Rola rack for your vehicle would be part # 59721. On both sides of your roof, near the edge there should be a channel running the length of the roof. There should be 4 rectangular covers that conceal the factory mounting locations. According to my Rola representative, all models of the Matrix should have the mounting locations. Once the covers are removed, there are 2 10mm bolts under each cover that need to be backed out and the existing clip bracket needs to be removed....

  • What Rhino Rack Part Numbers are Required For Roof Rack on a 2007 Toyota Matrix

All you would need to complete the rack is the fit kit part # DK062 and you would be ready to go.

  • If your 2006 Toyota Matrix has a naked roof (no side rails or crossbars already then you can use Rola Roof Rack # 59721. On the roof there will be channel running the length of the roof on each side. In these channels are some covers that hide the factory mounting locations. All you have to do them is mount the bars and feet according to the linked instructions. There probably is a place in New York that could install the rack for you and any trusted mechanic could do it. However, installation...

  • On a 2006 Toyota Matrix that does not have any sort of roof rack, what we call a naked roof, there should be factory mounting points located beneath little doors on the roof of the vehicle.

I have linked the installation isntructions for you.

  • Roof Rack & Cargo Carrier for 2006 Toyota Matrix

  • Roof Rack for a 2005/2006 Toyota Matrix XR that Does Not have Fixed Mounting Points
  • The fixed point covers should be a little forward of the back of the front door (when closed) along the gutter. The rear cover should just about even with the back of the rear door. If they are not present then you will need to use a different roof rack style. Rhino Rack offers a similar style rack with elliptical crossbars.

  • The 110 weight capacity of the Rola Sport Series Roof Rack # 59721 is the capacity of the pair of cross bars that the roof rack consists of. The capacity is for the two crossbars together.

Toyota Matrix Roof Bike Racks Questions and Answers
