How to Clean & Maintain a Roof Rack

Taking Care of Your Rack

  • Remove the roof rack from time to time for cleaning and inspection. Cleaning a roof rack is simple and can be done with warm, soapy water.
  • Lubricate all bolts, locks, washers, tightening knobs, etc. If any of these parts are corroded, be sure to replace them immediately. Tighten all bolts.
  • Perform regular inspections for any new wear and tear, and check for frayed or warn straps and loose buckles. Whether you have a Kayak roof rack or a bike roof rack, you don’t want to lose your expensive gear due to cracked plastic or frayed straps. Replace any worn pieces as necessary.

Bolted this on to my '08 MDX last weekend. The instructions are adequate but it's best to take your time anyway, I found myself trimming some of the fittings to make the assembly a little easier. Once bolted on there is definitely an increase in wind noise - if you listen to your music loud you won't notice it, but I'll probably add an INNO fairing to the front. Overall the rack itself is solid, very heavy duty, looks good on top of the truck.

I'm glad I went with AutoAnything. I was unfamiliar with AA and was worried that the delivery time would suffer because the item was advertised at $200 below retail (compared to REI) with shipping and tax included. But AA delievered great product on time as promised. Attention 2005 - 2010 Honday Odyssey Owners: When the rear hatch is opened, it will hit the box. It's needs another 1.5 inch to clear it, but the box cannot be moved forward anymore. This is true for boxes using the factory Honda crossbars - the box sits lower. This will likely not be true for after market crossbars (like Thule or Yakima) where the box will ride higher. The box just needs to flex a little for the 1.5 inch it needs and you can let the hatch rest on the box. It may scuff your spoiler finish, though. At any rate, I love the box and the way it looks on the Odyssey. I'm glad I went with the biggest one. I was able to load the box with 105 - 110 lbs of cargo. The box is 59 lbs plus 110 cargo = 169 lbs on the Odyssey rack which is rated only at 150lbs. It fine on the 1100 mi trip we took.

Clamps for Q7?

As I do not need the bars for 2 cars... can I only buy the clamps for the Q7 (without the bars)?

Hello. We do not offer the clamps only, so you would need to purchase the entire set in order to acquire the clamps. Thank you for your question.

Hi Deb, sorry, this only fits the Rouge with factory roof racks.
