FS: X164 GL450 GL550 Chrome Cross Bar

I just got this part in from Penske Mercedes! Unfortunately they order the WRONG Part For my new gl550

Man! the part advisor need to get their head straight!

Now I am Stuck with this THING that I can not use with my THULE!

What I really Needed was the Roof Rack Basic Carrier Not the CHROME Cross Bar!

I am now listing this for Sale for $485 with FREE SHIPPING









Although I am New to this forum I have more than 75 Positive Review on Ebay and really need to get rid of this

Thanks

What "Thule" are you using that is not compatible with these crossbars?

FS: Chrome Cross Bar Pic Update

Hi

Actually I am using a Thule Evolution 2100 Cargo Carrier!

The Locking unit is a U shape iron piece which was too narrow for the size for the bar! The bar's width measure around 6 inches and the U shape piece that I have measure at 4 inches

I am just trying find an alternative so that I can use my Thule again

Thanks

Was only asking to see if you could use an adapter kit for it.

Call Thule to see if this will work for your purposes:
Thule 5075 Luggage Box Adaptor Kit - Thule Rack Accessories

If not, ask if there is an adapter that exists to convert your mounting hardware to fit on the Aerobar channels.

Worst-case scenario, you could just go with a Thule solution:
Thule

Good luck.

Did you ever sell these? I'm looking for cross bars for my '07 450 GL. How much $$?

Thanks,
