I purchased them but did not have them installed. the instructions seem simple. 1 with flat bedded tool pry the plastic covers up. 2 open the latches on the crossbars and slide them into position. 3 replace plastic covers. I have not yet try to install them yet with the same worries of scrathing or damaging the covers. The illustration shows th entire cover to come up but does not give a hint to wher you should pry it from.

That same luggage carrier is sold (as OEM approved equipment) for MANY different makes and models of automobiles. From what I can see, it simply clamps onto the cross-rails on your luggage rack. (Not much instruction needed) It does require however, that you have a luggage rack and a cross-rail kit. The cross-rail kit is sold separately. I would give you the part number, but the cross-rail kit varies depending on your make, model, and year.
I have the same vehicle and was able to remove mine with the following steps:
1) remove light behind each rear of luggage rack rail using phillips screwdriver (one screw each side).
2) remove molding underneath each light using T20 torx driver (2 screws each side).
3) Loosen cross rails nobs.
4) Side cross rails off of roof.
Under the Hood Drivers Side You will see a black plastic box
which holds the computer. Right in front of the fuse box, Two sets of wires comming out of it.
It needs to be removed ,the whole box it unsnaps , Under it is a larger black cover, under that you will find the battery.
They have torx screw or allen wrench's they just unbolt look at the top and then look on the sides of these extensions as soon as you get them loose you should be able to pull them out/Please rate my response thank you very much
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
