    I am in the process of purchasing a used '07 element and am looking for feedback on yakima racks - does anyone have input on the different types of bars (round vs. more aerodynamic), towers, etc.? I have a rack system already so am wondering if it's worth re-using some of the parts I already...
  3. Roof cleats!

    Do-It-Yourself / Mods
    So I bought two things recently. A fishing kayak and a condo. The kayak needs to go on the roof of my Element but the underground parkade has a very low door and I couldn't fit with roof racks. I'm ok with using foam pads to protect my Element roof but needed something for my straps to attach...

    Hey everyone, I just built the luggage rack you see on my E and I figured I would share it, in-case anyone wanted to see it or was planning on building their own. I'm not completely done with it.

    Racks, Hitches & Towing
    Happy New Year ... E'ers! I'm pretty sure that someone quite recently posted a great build for a set of roof rack feet made out of aluminum C channel. They were coated up in a grey metal paint, and the dude had slotted out the roof garnish so things closed up nicely. Does this ring a bell to...

  10. Has anyone had OEM roof rack fail from too much weight?

    Racks, Hitches & Towing
    We're finally buying OEM roof racks for our Element, and I wanted to know if anyone has had theirs fail from too much weight. The Honda racks claim just a 66lb weight limit. We want to get a cargo box, and it seems like the bars would barely hold that and some stuff. Wondering if it's worth...

    Hey folks, I have the dog ramp that Honda sells as part of the dog kit. When I travel with my four dogs + wife + kit, it becomes a challenge to store the ramp in the Element. When we are all in the car we put one of the rear seats up on the side, but keep it in the car. Does anyone have tips...

    Racks, Hitches & Towing
    The spot-welds on the front roof rack mounting brackets on our '03 Element have broken. Fortunately the ones at the front and rear held but the ones in the middle are gone, ensuring that the others will break from the bouncing eventually. I've had them spot-welded at an auto body shop once but...
