Installing Luggage Rack Crossbars

I bought some OEM crossbars from eBay, and want to install them. It appears that I need to remove a trim piece at the back end of the rails that run front to back. Anyone know how to safely remove and then reinstall the trim piece?

The trim piece is held on by an adhesive that is very difficult to remove. my suggestion is find the location where you want to install the foot part of the rack. then take a small cutting tool like a dremel and just remove that section. this way you should not have to remove the whole trim piece. please rate this........thanks

Are two bungy cords enough to secure one piece of luggage on top of a 2004 pathfinder thats criss crosses the bungy cords of course and also bringing in the luggage as tight as possble with the crossbars...


Hi SSheftall,

If you can get them tight enough that the luggage won't move easily, I'd have to say yes.

In the end it's your responsibility and your call. If you, the vehicle operator have any doubt, by all means, secure it further. Be safe.

Re-positioning crossbars on roof rack


Hi Its easy to do I did this last night. It is in the manual but light on detail

Remove the rubber and you will see a screw
Use a size 25 torx screw bit and a ratchet as it is in tight. Undo the screw and move the bars.

For some reason there is only one more locking point you can move forward to from there you are on your own but normally it is just the last bit you need.

I believe the logic is to do with a combination of wind noise and the position of the sun roof on some models.

It is extremely simple. Loosen the screw, believe it is a hex head but may be torx, on the bottom of the crossbar and the crossbars will pop right off.
