BMW X3 Roof Rack Questions and Answers

The Rola bars measure 3-1/8 inches wide which is going to be compatible with most Thule cargo boxes currently in production. If you can tell me which Thule box you have or are looking at I can determine fit. The Atlantis and Ascent boxes using the QuickGrip system will fit. Some of the other Thule boxes both past and present use u-bolts.

From what I could find, they are all wide enough to fit around the Rola bars.

My contact at Yakima tells me that they do not currently offer a roof rack solution for the 2012 BMW X3 equipped with the flush rails that run from the front to the rear of the vehicle roof. Therefore, the RailGrab Towers with Audi adapters that you mentioned will not work with your vehicle. However, Thule offers a solution for your vehicle. If you prefer the square crossbars, you can construct a rack using the following parts: Square Load Bars, part # THLB50 Podium Roof Mounted Foot Pack

I spoke with my contact at Rola about the Rola Sport Series Roof Rack with RB Mounting System, # 59827. He stated that while it is aluminum, it is also black anodized so the system is black like in the first picture. I have included a link to the installation details for this roof rack below.

BMW X3 Roof Bike Racks Questions and Answers

The # TH558P Thule tandem rooftop bike rack will fit on either the round Yakima bars or the square Thule bars. Your 2004 BMW X3 should already have factory side rails that run front to back, so you would only need to get a cross bar kit that clamps to these side rails. The compatible Thule kit would be part # TH45050 and the Yakima kit would include parts # Y00409 and #, Y00138. The Thule kit includes locks, but you would need to get part # Y07202 to lock the Yakima bars to the roof of the

If you wanted to mount a bike rack directly to your roof rack crossbars, then you may be interested in the SportRack Nomad Bike Rack, # ABR611.

BMW X3 Roof Cargo Carrier Questions and Answers

I spoke to my contact at Thule and she informed me that as long as you have flush rails you would be able to install a Thule Boxter Rooftop Cargo Box # TH611, but you will first need a Thule roof rack. You should also note that you would not be able to open your rear hatch with this box installed either. For a roof rack you would need the following products: Thule AeroBlade Load Bars # THARB47 Thule Podium Foot Pack for Aero Bars # TH460R Thule Podium Fit Kit # THKIT4023 If you have a

To mount the Thule Atlantis 1800 XT Cargo Box, # TH687BXT, on your 2013 BMW X3, you will need a set of crossbars that run side to side on your roof. I would recommend using the Thule AeroBlade roof rack which includes 2 aeroblade crossbars, # THARB47, the Podium foot pack, # TH460R, and the Fit Kit, # THKIT4023. This roof rack will attach to the flush mounted side rails that run front to back on your roof. At this time Thule does not list any cargo boxes as a fit for factory installed crossb

It sounds like the lid is not coming down all of the way or it is uneven. The lids on cargo boxes like # Y07191 are solid but flexible so one side may be slightly ajar even if it looks closed. The box will not lock unless the lid is closed properly. The lid has to latch all the way in 3 places (per side) to close correctly.

It is possible that during the assembly of the box that something is misaligned and that is causing the issue. You can try to correct this by disassembling the box using t

The largest Thule cargo box that will fit the factory roof rack on a 2007 BMW X3 is the Atlantis 2100, # TH688XT in silver. It is among the longest at 92-1/2 inches and has 21 cubic feet of storage space. Because these boxes are 92-1/2 inches long, you may not be able to fully open the rear hatch.

I have included a link to a video showing a typical installation and a link to the installation details for the Podium foot pack. Once installed the crossbars will be 27-1/2 inches apart center to center

The Rola Roof Mounted Cargo Basket is meant to be attached to the cross bars of a roof rack system. To provide cross bars on your existing rails that run from the front to the rear of the vehicle, you can use the Rola Sport Series Roof Rack with RB Mounting System, # 59827. It is also advised to check the owners manual to determine the weight capacity of your vehicle roof. The basket weighs just over 20 lbs, you will need to ensure that the weight of the cargo and the basket does not exceed

BMW X3 Ski and Snowboard Racks Questions and Answers

This Thule Tram Hitch Mounted Bike Rack Ski Carrier Adapter, part # TH9033, is designed to work on a lot of bike racks, but it is not designed to work with the Thule Helium Aluminum 2 Bike Carrier for 1-1/4 inch and 2 inch Hitches – Tilting – Hitch Mount, part # TH970XT.

BMW X3 Watersport Carriers Questions and Answers

I do have a possible solution for you, but the Thule Stacker, # TH830, requires a bar spread of 24 inches from center to center between the crossbars on the roof. Thule does not list the Stacker as a fit for the factory crossbar set up on a 2005 BMW X3. If the crossbars on your X3 are less than 4 inches thick, you can use the Rhino-Rack carrier, # S512-S511X.

I have included a link to the installation details for you to view.
