Question about 2007 Hyundai Santa Fe Limited
I just ordered new crossbars for my roofrack. Can you help me install the crossbars? Or do I need to go to a local dealership?
I was able to get installation instructions for the cross bars from http://www.capitolhyundai.com and from http://dealerfit.com. Thanks much to these folks for providing a pdf of these instructions free of charge!
Below is the text from the instruction set that worked best for me. The other instruction set was nearly identical but it had an alternate Step 2 which involved using a small plastic pry bar. I added that alternate Step below in the instruction step. Hopefully I'm able to insert the image of each instruction set so that the Figures are visible. Its actually not that easy getting the rear rail covers off and its pretty easy to crack them. I'd recommend gently rocking the covers for a couple minutes in order to loosen them up. Once you get the covers off, the rest of the install is a breeze and can be done in 2 minutes. If you have questions, go ahead and contact me. I also took several photos of my install and that might be helpul. Cheers!

Kit Contents: • (2) Cross Bar Assemblies Required Tools: • Flat Head Screwdriver
1. Carefully unscrew and remove radio antenna. 2. Grasp the rear rail covers with both hands. Squeeze and pull up & inwards (toward the center of the vehicle) to remove covers. Take care not to break off the tabs by lifting the rear section of the cover first (Figure 1). Be careful not to scratch, damage or dent any painted surfaces. DO NOT PRY AGAINST THE VEHICLE BODY, THIS CAN CAUSE DAMAGE TO THE VEHICLE. 2. - Alternate Method - Locate notch in rear of each cover to insert plastic pry bar. Remove cover by prying up (with tool) and lifting rear at 45 degree angle (Fig 1). Be careful not to scratch, damage or dent any painted surfaces. DO NOT PRY AGAINST THE VEHICLE BODY, THIS CAN CAUSE DAMAGE TO THE VEHICLE. 3. Check assembly clips for damage and dislocation. Replace if necessary. 4. Open the lever on one side of front/rear cross bar. Gently set the cross bar, with the arrows facing forward, into the channel of the side rails (Figure 2). Guide both sides into the track. 5. To adjust cross bars, open lever and place cross bars in desired location. Close lever (Figure 3). Try to move bars forward/back until they lock into place. 6. Reinstall rear covers by holding cover at a 45 degree angle and inserting the front tab into the rear of the roof rack. After aligning, snap cover in place (Figure 4). Be sure that the rubber lip does not interfere with the covers, and that the covers are fully seated. 7. Reinstall the radio antenna. Note: To remove the cross bars, remove the antenna, remove the covers, open lever of cross bar and slide to end of rail. Hold down locking fingers (on both RH/LH rear rail supports) with a flat head screwdriver (Figure 5). This will allow removal of cross bars from the rails.
