Thanks for your unfortunate discovery. To me, this seems to be another short-sighted decision from the Honda design engineers. It sounds like battery problems are almost guaranteed with the GE's. ...

Skimmer-
According to the new Thule fitment chart, your roof rack will also fit the '09s as well. '07-08-09 Fits all use the same "foot" model number.
