The diagrams I see show how to wire subwoofers that aren't in enclosures, but I don't want to drill holes in my box how do I wire 2 dual voice coil two subwoofers to a 2 ohm load without drilling holes in...

You must get the wires to the sub's terminals. Drill it and silicone the wire trough the hole or get a terminal connection to put in the box, hook the sub to the internal side, the wires from the amp to the box on the exterior side. Looks cleaner but it's a bigger home, little extra work and a little extra $

Thule Hullavator arm does not automatically lift as other arm does....seems to be leaking fluid?

Hullivator lift cylinders are pneumatic, there is no fluid to leak. However, they do fail, and when they do, they do not provide lift. Despite what Thule says, the cylinders can be replaced. I have replaced 4 of them. Drill out the rivets holding the old cylinders in place. I bought new cylinders from - they were very helpful and they charged a little less than $30 each for the cylinders. The first cylinders were 75 pound lifts. Those my sister found too light to provide all the lift she wanted. I have since installed 150 pound lifts (this will require a clamp). I cut off, and reused, the longer of the original Thule rivets where the shorter rivet formerly was, and used a 5/16ths 4" stainless bolt in place of the longer rivet. It will take a couple of tries and some prying to get all the holes lined up for that last bolt, under pressure, but in retrospect it will all seem to have been surprisingly easy. Good luck.

Hinge Replacement, Thule Thule Atlantis 688T 2100 Cargo Cariier

Hi Erroll,

What I believe you're referring to is the 'locking hook' -- the piece attached to the lid that slides into the lock mounted on the bottom segment of the cargo box. While it acts like a hinge in respect of the closed side of the Thule, what the mfg refers to as the hinge (or also referred to as a strut) is the spring mechanism at the front and back used to hold the lid up.

You can acquire this locking hooks online - attached a link for your convenience.

Good luck.

How to change locks?

Just replaced the locks on an Atlantis 200 which should be the same.
Pop off the 3 rubber caps around the lock and drill out the rivets.
Inside the box pull the plastic unit away from you (bending the aluminium strip slightly but this is fine) gaining access to 2 screws. Unscrew these (I used a small ratchet with a pozi bit rather than a screwdriver) and remove the plastic unit.
You'll have to take out the lock cartridge next. Theres various wedges in the plastic which you should try to hold open then a flat screwdriver near the cog should lever the whole thing out.
To get the barrel lock out of it's cartridge you'll have to push the tumblers in from the back with a very small screwdriver and gradually work it out. (the one I did had a snapped key so I'm assuming this part is easier if you are just changing locks for keyed alike purposes)
Fitting the new lock in to it's cartridge should be easy enough. When you reinsert the cartridge in to the housing make sure that the sliding bolt (that your key turns) is fully in the open position, otherwse your key won't do a thing.
Screw the housing back on and re-rivet the points you drilled.

The catch/lock on the thule roof box broke - need a repair / replacement


Any Thule dealer should be able to sort this one out for you.

Have a look through Thule's website to find the model and possibly you could get it online if it's sold as a user changeable accessory..
