Roof Rack Recommendation for a 2012 Mazda 5


I am planning on purchasing this and installing myself on a 2012 Mazda5. Is this my best choice? Also, I am not sure how to remove the plastic covers that currently are on my roof. Will I be reinstalling these with the new roof rack?


Expert Reply:

The plastic covers on your 2012 Mazda 5 will just pop out and you can remove them with your hands. In the event one should be difficult, you can use a narrow tool such as a flat screwdriver to pop it off but you will want to be very careful not to scratch or dent the vehicle if you must use a tool.

The covers will not be put back on as long as the roof rack is installed on the vehicle. Make sure that you save the covers should you want to remove the rack.

The Thule rack is a good choice. The SquareBars are compatible with a lot of different accessories. To complete the installation you will need the foot pack you have referenced, # TH460R, SquareBars, # TH712200, and fit kit # THKIT3080.
