Video Transcript for Thule Roof Rack Review - 2012 Mazda 3

Today on our 2012 Mazda 3 we're doing a test fit of the Thule AeroBlade Edge Crossbars. The part number for our crossbars today is TH7602-TH7602. Then the part number for our fit kit for this is THKIT3069. We already have our front bar put together. We're going to show you how we put our back bar together, mostly with the last foot pack, and then how we'll mount it onto our vehicle. We're going to start out with everything that you see here. All of this is included with the kit, except for our wrench here.

I like to use this over our tool, but you can use the tool that's provided. We're going to start by taking our foot pack that we've already fit together. They'll come separate, you simply push it in, and it secures in place. We're going to take that foot pack, and we're going to attach two bolts in through these holes here. They're going to screw in right on the edge of our crossbar. Once we've got those started we can take that included tool, and we'll start to tighten that down.

That's all the way tightened down. We can take our crossbar, and we'll sneak it on to our vehicle. Before we started I went ahead and took off our caps that covered up our holes here. I tightened down this screw, and then placed this piece over top, it just slides right on and sits right there. What we'll do now is take our crossbar. We're going to set it down onto those screws, so it fits right up through our foot pack.

Fix this other side, and make sure it's sitting evenly. With those in place we'll take one washer, place it on, and then we'll take our nut, and we'll tighten that down over the top. I'll tighten it down all the way hand tight, and I'll do the same on the other side. A great thing about this style mount, the podium style, is that you don't have to worry about those clamps siting in your door frame, or in your door jamb. These sit nice and flush with the vehicle, and you don't have to take any of those measurements or anything. They simply fit into those pre-drilled holes in your vehicle.

At this time you would either take your included tool, or you can take a 10 mm wrench, and you can tighten this down. I personally like to use a wrench, because it's a little easier. You're going to keep tightening it down until it's completely secure, just like so. Do the same over here, last good turn, and now we can place on our caps. We're got our end caps here. They simply slide over, and secure in place. They don't come with lock core. In this case our customer has bought one, so we inserted our lock core there, but you can find them on our website if you would like to purchase one yourself. With that secure that's going to be our completed look at the Thule AeroBlade Edge Roof Rack, on our 2012 Mazda 3.

Average Customer Rating:  4.8 out of 5 stars   (9 Customer Reviews)

This fit kit lets you mount Thule Rapid Podium-style feet to your vehicle with factory roof-rack tracks. The fit kit includes pads, hardware, and tools necessary for installation.


I called several times with help on the product I was looking for. I had no idea what would fit or what product I needed for my car. The staff was extremely helpful each time and awesome!! I appreciate everyone's help and VERY happy with my purchase.

I was upset because the weather was supposed to be nice and it would be a few days until I recieved. The next day I got an email saying it would be delivered before the weekend, which it was and I was able to use. Great customer service.

Thank you.


The set of used crossbars I bought were missing 3 of the 4 rubber 'feet'. etrailer had the best price, and the customer service has been outstanding; I received an email yesterday afternoon from Carol just to let me know that the package was showing as delivered.


Product looks great and is quiet as can be. I havent noticed any wind noise at all after the installation. Thule instructions are pretty sucky, its like reading hieroglyphics.


I've owned several thule products over the years. Outstanding product!! I did weeks of searching various web sites. has the best prices and the best service !! I am now a life long customer period


So far, so good mounting process very easy. Have yet to try it out...more than likely this weekend will be placing a 9.5 foot kayak for the trial run.


Right product, good price, quick shipping. What else is there??


Fits just as it should. Flush and true.


Easy Purchase, Great Service. Awesome V alue..

  • Replacement Thule Fit Kit part # THKIT3069 Recommendation to Replace Stolen Components
    I wish the parts you need were available as spare parts but they are not. The only solution I can provide for you would be to replace your entire fit kit with another part # THKIT3069. That thief has really weird tastes, or had the same thing done to him that he did to you. Either way, it's very odd for just the hardware and wrench of a Thule roof rack fit kit to get stolen.

  • Replacement M6x60mm Screw for Thule Fit Kit # TH3069 That Fits Roof Rack on 2004 Mazda 3
    It sounds like you have a Thule roof rack that attaches to the fixed points on the roof of your 2004 Mazda 3 using the # THKIT3069 fit kit. Is this correct? I checked with Thule, and confirmed that they don't offer this particular piece as a replacement part. The screw is a very specialized piece of hardware, and it's not something your local hardware store would carry. Unfortunately, you'll need to replace the foot pack to get the part you need.

  • Replacement Fit Kit For Thule Podium Style Foot Pack

  • 2015 Mazda CX-5 with Naked Roof Rack Recommendation for Attaching to Fixed Points
    The Rhino Rack part number # RRRS367B that you referenced does attach to the factory fixed points of a 2015 Mazda CX-5 so it would be your best option since due to that and it's flush bar design it will have an OEM look and will work great. The rest of the racks we carry use clamps.

  • Can a Roof Rack for a 2012 Mazda 3 Be Removed when Needed and How to Access the Fixed Points
    If you install any roof rack on your 2012 Mazda 3, you can remove it if needed, even if that rack attaches to the fixed points on the vehicle. The fixed points for the rack are located under small plates that you can just pull up and off of the vehicle like in the video I have linked on a similar vehicle. In some cases a small flat head screwdriver can be used to gently pull the covers up. For the Thule roof rack you would need the following parts: SquareBars: # TH712200 Podium Foot...

  • Parts Needed to Add a Thule SquareBar Roof Rack to a 2013 Mazda 3 Hatchback
    For the 2013 Mazda 3 hatchback with fixed mounting points, to install a Thule square bar roof rack you will need the following parts: 47 inch SquareBars, # TH712200 Rapid Podium Foot Pack, # TH460R Fit kit, # THKIT3069 I have included a link to a video demonstrating the SquareBars for you.

  • Roof Rack Options for a 2007 Mazda 3 Hatchback with Factory Fixed Points
    I have a solution for you to consider, but the part # 59833 will not fit your 2007 Mazda 3 hatch with factory fixed mounting points. For a rack that would have the same style of flush bars and would install similarly you would want the Thule part # TH7602-TH7602 and # THKIT3069. This would be quite a bit more expensive, but it would be your best option.

  • Recommend Roof Rack to Mount an Older Thule Weekender Roof Cargo Box On a 2011 Mazda 3 - 5 Door
    I do have a solution for you to carry your Thule Weeekender roof cargo box on the roof of your 2011 Mazda 3, 5 door, but the Rola Sport Series Roof Rack, part # 59833, is not compatible. The reason why it will not work is because the older model Thule roof cargo boxes are designed to work with square Thule load bars. You are correct, the Rola load bars are too wide to work with cargo box mounting feet. You will need to use the Thule Roof Rack, part # TH460R, # TH712200, # THKIT3069, which...

  • Can Thule AeroBlade Roof Rack or Similar Roof Rack Fit a 2016.5 Mazda CX-5 with Naked Roof
    Thule roof rack fit kit # THKIT3069 does not fit any version or year of the Mazda CX-5 but we have similar roof racks that do mount to the fixed mounting points on your 2016.5 Mazda CX-5. I recommend Rhino-Rack roof rack with Vortex bars # RRVA118S-2 along with leg kit # RRRLKVA, and custom mounting kit # DK289. This is the rack most like the AeroBlade roof rack you mentioned.

  • Roof Rack Recommendation for a 2008 Mazda CX-9 With a Bare Roof
    We have several roof rack options that will fit the bare roof of your 2008 Mazda CX-9. I have attached a link to all of the roof racks that will fit for you to check out. Out of the available options, I recommend looking into the Thule WingBar Evoroof rack. The WingBars are aerodynamic and dramatically reduce wind noise and drag so they're quiet and better on gas mileage. To order this roof rack you would want the bars, # TH711400, the Podium Foot Pack, # TH460R, and the CX-9 Fit Kit,...

  • Thule AeroBlade Edge Roof Rack for a 2013 Mazda 3
    There is a Thule AeroBlade Edge roof rack available for your 2013 Mazda 3. If you have the 4-door sedan or 5-door hatchback with fixed mounting points on the roof use # TH7602-TH7602 with fit kit # THKIT3069. Roof rack # TH7603-TH7603 is not a fit for the Mazda 3.

  • Can I Use My Old Thule Square Crossbars On My 2010 Mazda 3's Roof Rack
    I can definitely find a Thule rack that will fit your 2010 Mazda 3. However, I cannot guarantee that you will be able to use your existing Thule square crossbars with a Thule roof rack because Thule redesigned their feet. If your Thule square crossbar does not have a channel on the bottom, it will not work with the new Thule foot, but it will work with the Inno roof rack. The Thule foot that you are describing that clamps to the rails, is not going to be compatible with the Thule foot...

  • Options To Carry 3 Bikes And Cargo On 2012 Mazda 3
    Since you need to carry 3 bikes and cargo, I recommend a trunk mount bike carrier and a roof rack to carry your cargo. The bike carrier I recommend for your 2012 Mazda 3 is the Thule Passage, part # TH911XT. This carrier has dual folding arms, and uses the patented FitDial system to secure the bike carrier to the rear of your Mazda. If you plan on carrying bikes with alternative frames like women's bikes or kids bikes I recommend an adapter bar like part # TH982XT. This attaches between...

  • Using # D-192 Dual Hitch Receiver to Carry Bike Rack and Tow Trailer with 2011 Mazda CX7
    The Curt # D-192 might be an option for you, but I am afraid once you place a ballmount in the rise orientation in the bottom receiver opening, there will not be enough room to install your bike rack. Your best option would probably be a trunk mounted rack like the Thule OutWay, which is available in a 2 bike (# T45JV) or 3 bike (# TH56BV) capacity. If you went with a trunk mounted rack, I recommend using an extra-long ball mount like part # 4285 to provide extra clearance between the...

    The Thule Rapid Podium feet, # TH460R, are listed as a fit for the 2013 Mazda 3, 5-door hatchback. These feet fit in the factory fixed mounting points on the roof of the vehicle. If you want to go with Thule SquareBars then you will need the following parts: Rapid Podium feet # TH460R 47 inch SquareBars # TH712200 Fit kit # THKIT3069 If you want to go with aerodynamic WingBars for less wind noise then you will need the following parts: Podium feet # TH460R 47 inch WingBars # TH711200...

  • Trailer Hitch, Bike Rack and Roof Rack Recommendation for a 2012 Mazda 3 Carrying 3 Bikes
    I recommend going with the Draw-Tite Class I Sportframe Trailer Hitch, # 24843, for your 2012 Mazda 3 Hatchback without LED taillights. This hitch can carry any bike rack that is designed for use in a Class I hitch and allows you to tow a small trailer, should your needs change in the future. With a Class I hitch you will be limited to 2 bikes because the weight of the 3rd bike that for out from the rear of the vehicle will allow too much torque to be applied to the hitch, much like adding...

  • Roof Rack to Fit in Fixed Rain Gutter Mounting Points on a 2015 Mazda CX-5
    The Thule roof racks that will fit your 2015 Mazda CX-5 with a naked roof will all have a clamp-on system that holds the feet to the roof with a metal clip that attaches to the top of the door jamb. Side rails are not needed for this style. But I take it that you do not want that style either. For a roof rack that will fit into the fixed points that are in the rain gutter channels you can use a Rhino-Rack roof rack using bars # RRVA118B-2 for black or # RRVA118S-2 for silver, leg kit...

  • What Roof Rack and Cargo Carrier/Cargo Basket do You Recommend for My 2009 Mazda 3 with Fixed Points
    For your 2009 Mazda Speed 3 hatchback, roof rack manufacturers do not differentiate between base Mazda 3s and your Speed model. With that being said, for your bare roof with fixed mounting points, I recommend the following setup: - Thule WingBar Evo Crossbars - Aluminum - Silver - 47" Long # TH711200 (silver) or # TH711220 (black) - Rapid Podium Feet for Thule Crossbars - Fixed Point # TH460R - Fit Kit for Thule Podium-Style Roof Rack Feet- 3069 # THKIT3069 - Thule Same Key Lock Cores...
