I am looking for some advice regarding fitting my roofbox to the Audi supplied roof bars. I intend to use the Thule T Track system, but was wondering if I need to drill a hole in the rubber strip on top of the roof bar or simply remove the rubber strip when using the roof box? Any help much appreciated.

If the wind noise from the bars gets too much then cut the rubber strip into suitable lengths and put it back in the slots to cover up the exposed sections.

Hi,
I've done this several times and find drilling a hole in the rubber is the best solution, giving a really secure grip for roofbox and reducing wind noise.
Good luck.
