Availability of Fit Kit for Thule Rapid Traverse Foot Pack for a 2015 Subaru WRX


Hi I have a 2015 WRX. I am looking for replacement clamps for my roof rack. I have the rapid traverse pack. Could you point me to the clamp that would fit?

The correct fit kit to mount the (discontinued) Thule Rapid Traverse foot pack TH480R to your 2015 Subaru WRX is the discontinued part THKIT1649. Thule has been doing a complete remake of their products and so basically all of their roof rack and bike racks have been changed to a newer style that better accommodates newer vehicles. I reached out to my contact at Thule to see if the newer fit kit will work with the Rapid Traverse foot pack but he said that none of those parts are interchangeable.

Luckily you will still be able to keep your crossbars so you just need the Evo Clamp Feet # TH710501 and the Fit Kit # TH145178. If you wanted to upgrade your crossbars to the newer style then you'll need the 53" long WingBar Evo crossbars which come in Black # TH711420 and Silver # TH711400.

Attached is an installation video of this system on a 2019 Subaru WRX that you can check out.
