Knowledgebase: Thule Roof Bar FAQs
The report for my particular car shows that I need a Thule "short roof adapter". What's this for?

These adapters are usually used on two door cars where the doors aren't wide enough to accommodate both of the roof bars and still allow at least 650mm between them. In this event, the front bar is clamped into the front door area as normal, the rear bar stands loose on the roof behind the front doors and is then joined to the front bar with the short roof adapter. This short roof adapter is then clamped into the front door area, pulling everything tight and holding the rear bar firmly on the roof.
