How to Install Replacement Hinge or Strut on Thule Rooftop Cargo Box


How to reinsert ball into socket of cargo cover hinge. Looked for the video online and can not find it anywhere!


Expert Reply:

Installing a replacement hinge or strut on your Thule rooftop cargo box isn't complicated, but it does take some force. I have added a link to a video showing how to do this, and you can forward to about the 1:30 part to get to the nitty gritty. In our video, our installer uses a clamp (like in the accompanying photo) to make it easier.

The correct replacement hinge or strut is going to depend on the exact Thule cargo box you have; there are two replacements, and the exact Thule rooftop cargo box they work with is listed on the product page:

- Replacement Lid Lifter Hinge for Thule Cargo Boxes # TH14936
- Replacement Lid Lifter Hinge for Thule Motion XT Cargo Boxes # 1401495200
