    Thule oddity makes me worry about warranty claim

    Ok so here it is, a couple years ago I received a thule complete rack as a gift from my parents to install on my new at the time 2008 civic sedan. Now a couple years later according to thule staff and myself my load bars are junk because of rust (dangerous as they flake from the inside) I placed a warranty claim and everything went well until I taugh about it tonight . I have the aero 400XTR foot kit and square bar but the square bar for that kit just dont seem to exist in canada. Normally these foot kit uses aluminium aero bar, why do I have these ??? They seem like euro 760-765 load bar, were they available in canada previously ??

    I know for a fact my parents bought the whole kit deal locally and brand new at a ski shop (which sadly burned down since)

    anyone knowledgeable about those load bars ?

    Im worried i will receive something that will not fit!!


    thank you

    Oh well. couldnt sleep on this, I searched a lot and finally asked my parents ,came to this conclusion , the shop where it was bought custom assembled it to be the least expensive, the bars are left over BMW specific slotted square bar , not made anymore, I dont think I can even get them replaced, I will call tomorow to get them replaced with aero bars as i have no choice really.

    if you have the 400xtr, then how could you have the thule rectangular crossbars. the aluminum crossbars that would fit the 400xtr won't rust.
    the 400xtr and the rectangular load bars don't work together.
    doesn't make sense...did I misread something?
