I want to convert the Thule rack systems from my previous car(s) into something usable on my new 'X. (Why do I want Thules when I've got the X's Touring racks? Because I want to carry kayaks, and for this I'll need a much longer distance between the front and rear bars than the Touring racks provide.)

I know I can get a Fit Kit #2098 to go with my #400 Aero Feet. This will work as a clamp-on solution. But I'd like to mount the Thules onto the roof tracks.

While I've seen posts describing Thule parts which connect to the X's own racks, and posts describing Yakima parts which connect to the X's roof channels, I don't remember seeing anything specific about success or failure with Thule connections to the roof tracks.

I can attest that Thule's fit guides do not cite any solutions for MDX rack rail mounting. But ORG members have found workable Thule solutions such as the FM-1 and VWADAPT despite a lack of anydocumentation or customer service knowledge at Thule.

So, has anyone determined for sure whether any versions of the Thule #415 Railing Foot Pack or the #430 Tracker II Foot will work on the MDX?
