post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
hey guys,

just got a thule rack for my car.

i had a rack a few years ago, it ended up scratching the paint on the roof of the car pretty badly? it was some cheaper rack.

can u guys give me tips to prevent this from happening with this thule rack.

question 2) can u go through a car wash with thule rack on top of the car?

I have no advice on preventing scratches.

I can tell you its probably not a good idea to go through a carwash unless it is "touchless". And this is only if it's a roof rack. If someone has a spare tire rack on the back of their car/SUV, they should never go through any type of car wash with it on.

What kind of car? Does it have factory side rails?

Clean the area well and the foot of the rack well. I also will throw a coat of wax on the spot where the foot will sit.

If it's a rack that sits on the roof with pads, you can apply 3M paint protection film to the area of the roof under the pad. That's what I used to do when I had Yakima towers and clips on older cars without rain gutters or rails.
