Hello All
I was following the different very nice and comprehensive post about the racks and installation in this car. Now the problem i seems to have is that my Mazda does NOT have fixing points. It seems that my version is japanese perhaps axesa and it does not have it very saddly.
Is there someone with the same problem? Any way you fixed/worked around?
Thanks in advance.

1) take the time to rustproof both sides of the car's seams, while there... using rust removing product, scraping, paint, and ultimately rustproofer. Does not look as good as I would have expected for a model year 2017 car!

2) you can easily use a more conventional roof rack that engages the gutters in the door opening area. I could argue that that latter mounting arrangement is more stout than the the one that ties-in to the roof seam trough. You are not so bad-off with that type of rack, you know.
