Question about Thule 686 Atlantis 1600 Cartop Carriers

Open Question

I have a Thule Adventurer that has never been used and a couple of quite big looking racks. How does one attach it and what does one need to do so? The Thule is 90 inches long by 24 inches wide and 15 inches high. I'm just wondering if I have all the equipment needed to put it all together on my car.

It attaches to the factory roof rails if you have them. If your vehicle doesn't have those, then you need the gutter mount feet for your Thule rack.

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..
