SOURCE: 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.

Restore finish on forester roof rail, sun bleached


This effect is the anodizing deterioration, and cannot be redone. Consider pulling the roof rail off and painting with black epoxy paint.

How to remove roof rail mounts


Removing roof rail mount can cause roof damage. And i think you just be careful while removing rail mount. You just need the screw driver and obviously little bit of effort. And in case you make your roof damaged then you should quickly apply Liquid Roofing

Trying to reinstall the roof cargo racks on the rails of a 01 jeep cherokee my son took off and cant remember to put on


That's usually easier to do if you remove one side rail.
There are usually six access holes in the rail that the screws go into. (pretty sure the screws are torx type) Once the rail is off, you can easily attach the cross bars and re-attach the rail to the roof. Ends of cross bars are held on with a screw that goes in from the bottom side. When replacing roof screws it is good to put a dab of silicone sealer on each screw hole to prevent rust or leaks.

How do you remove the roof rails on a 92 Camry SW? I was able to get the rack off but not the rails running the length of the roof. They appear to have rivets or some type of square drive screw heads on...


the rails are riveted or screwed to the roof screws are easy obviously,rivets need to be gently drilled out by a drill size that just is a tiny bit larger than the hole in the middle of the rivet and drill till the top of the rivet pops off(not much drilling required,then you need to block off all the holes otherwise the roof will rust through,you may need to clean and seal it carefully

Wind noise on 2006 Kia Sedona


  1. Pull the covers off from the top front of both rails.They are only loosely clipped.
  2. Undo the 2 screws found at the front and the 3rd screw at the back end of this base piece.
  3. Remove the base.( the nuts are locked in on the roof)
  4. Do this boths sides and then simply release the adjusting clips and slide off.
  5. Replace bases and screws in original positions and push on covers.
Best with 2 people.One each side when sliding off the cross rails.

Solved! And it looks neater.
