Roof rack with sunroof

Plug in limited arriving soon. We are kayakers and I want to use a roof rack. The Hyundai OEM crossbars are “not for use with sunroof”. Thule specs one. Anyone tried the Thule with a sunroof? Alternatives?

Nice!

All looks good! Thanks.
Just to be aware, They don’t come with the locks. I was able to pick up a four pack at my local REI for $59. Same price on Thule.

I have a 2022 Tucson Limited HEV, which has the pano sunroof. I just installed the Hyundai Cross Bars. Hyundai makes two versions, part CWF21 AU000 for models without the sunroof, and CWF21 AU100 for models with the sunroof (note the last three digits are 100 not 000). The crossbars list for $395, but you can find in on-line for under $300. A few dealers sell the parts for a discount (I bought mine from Conicelli Hyundai for $278). That includes everything you need, but it does not include locks. I was able to install the Thule locking cylinders (set of 4 for $60) so that I could lock mine. It works great with the sunroof. Very easy to install and remove. The cross bars don't make much noise with the sunroof closed, but you get a bit more wind noise with the sunroof open.

Here is a video link showing the sunroof operation with the crossbars installed
(could not figure out how to upload the video here) and a bunch of photos.

Ours came stock with those crossbars as an added item from the factory.

Wow! That is a lot cheaper than the Thule racks and it looks about the same.
Do the Hyundai crossbars have a center track for mounting accessories. The Thule crossbars allow mounting my kayak j carriers with no bolts protruding below.

MLS, I am not sure if this is what you are talking about? The end cap swings up, there is a track with a rubber insert in it. You could slide something in there that could hold something to the rack. The slot is ~3/4" wide and 3/16" deep. The opening along the top is just shy of 7/16" wide (measured 0.425"). You'll have to post a picture of what you are trying to attach. Never seen that. My kayak rack (YAKIMA - JayLow) clamps around the bar (and it does fit). The crossbar width (i.e. chord) is 3 1/4".

Thanks! Just like the Thule….great.
Good info Captain Pete! Seems to be an OEM part by THULE (note country of origin is Sweden). Amazing that it is half the price of the Thule. Differences noted are Thule’s lifetime warranty and included Torque wrench.
If you still need one, check this I got. Amazon.com
It keeps clearance for opening my sunroof. If you had investigated the Hyundai Racks. you’ll find it is the same style as Hyundai Santa Fe and Hyundai Palisade. But the Hyundai Tucson racks are different. Anyway, I like the design and the quality is good. Hope it helps.
