    You have to drop the exhaust to install the hitch still. I never finished this because I use the hitch a lot but not with a trailer. I'll get it done sometime in the future lol.

    I did this with my '09 Mazda hatch. They are OEM parts. From what I could find on my 2009 mazda 3 was they were standard on other country's vehicles, but not standard on US models. Not sure why Mazda didn't include these rain gutter guards standard on all models. It would make putting a Thule or other aftermarket roof rack easier. I used the thule rack on my 09 3. I've been looking at doing this on my 2018 cx-5 as well.

    If I'm understanding you correctly, the rails are factory as they fit the new models on a global level. The Thule rail system sits on top of these while the rhino rack system only covers the holes.
