How to Install a Yakima Q Tower Roof Rack on a 2013 Nissan Altima


Today on our 2013 Nissan Altima, we'll be test fitting the Yakima Q Towers roof rack system, with 48" crossbars, part numbers Y00408, Y00727, Y00606, and Y00124. With everything all assembled according to the instructions, we'll begin our test fit by placing the front crossbar onto the front of our roof. We'll then need to measure 15-1/8" from the first part of the glass to the first part of the tower on both the passenger and driver side of the vehicle. This will ensure the front crossbar is perpendicular to the roof. Once we have established this position, we'll then need to tighten the bolt on the inside of the tower, alternating each side, then clamping down the black cover, bringing the clamp tightly up against the roof line of our Altima. With this done, we'll place our rear crossbar onto the rear of our roof and measure the crossbar spread.

Now the crossbar spread is the measurement from the center of the front crossbar to the center of the rear crossbar. This will ensure that both crossbars are parallel to each other and perpendicular to the roof. Once we have established this position, we'll again turn the bolts on the inside of the tower, making sure we're alternating each side, and then clamping down the black levers to bring the clamps up around tightly against the roof of our Altima. With everything all tightened down and secured, that will complete today's test fit for the Yakima Q Towers roof rack system, with 48" crossbars, part numbers Y00408, Y00727, Y00606, and Y00124, on our 2013 Nissan Altima.
