Parts Needed to Install Thule Square Bar Roof Rack on 2017 BMW X5 with Flush Rails


I have an older generation Thule foot system and the Traverse 480 which is still old, I know foot system. Bought new car 2017 BMW X5 with flush rails and need to either get the black rubber pads and black metal clamps for the Traverse 480 system or the older style foot replacements bases only. I think the older style bases are TK1, TK2 and etc. Can you help please? Either will do. Thank you, P.S. See the photo attached for old style left and traverse 480 right

I wish I had a solution that allowed you to reuse the Thule roof rack you have now but Thule has moved on to a new style of roof rack for their square bar and they no longer offer fit kits for the feet you have. The square bars have changed now too as they have a channel that runs underneath them.

So what you'd need is the Thule square bar rack part # TH712400, # TH710601, and # TH186007 for your 2017 BMW X5.
