Will the Thule TH56BV fit on a MINI Cooper S Hatchback with rear wiper?


Expert Reply:

Yes, the Thule OutWay 3 Bike Carrier, # TH56BV, has been confirmed by Thule to fit on your 2011 MINI Cooper S Hatchback with rear wiper. The top clips will mount in the gap on the top edge of the rear hatch and the lower clips will secure at the bottom edge of the rear hatch. The lower arm of the bike rack should sit on the upper tier of the bumper.

Please note that the rear wiper cannot be used when the bike rack is mounted on your vehicle.

If you plan on carrying any women's or children bikes, then I would recommend using the Thule Bike Adapter Bar, # TH982XT, to carry the bikes safely.

I have attached a video review of the Thule Raceway bike rack and of the adapter bar for you to check out.
