OEM Roof Rack Install

Tools needed will be
25 Torx
30 Torx

The weather strip is cliped on by two clips on each side, the strips pop right off with minimal force.



here are the clips that hold the weather strip. ↓



Once removed, you will see three spots with a thick tape covering the threaded mounting holes. Remove the tape to uncover the holes. There are 5 treaded holes for the bolts per side. Two near the front, one in the middle, two near the back.

The first item bolted on is the front bracket. It uses the front two holes on the roof. All the bolts are either 25 or 30 torx heads.


Next, you will mount the one side of the rack.
The rack bolts up to the base with two bolts. Then also bolts up to the remaining 3 bolts on the rack to the roof.



Repeat on the pasenger side and the finished product should look like this ↓


and like this with the racks open ↓


In summary, theres only 14 bolts in total. The weather strips clip back on fairly easily if you decide to go back to stock. I believe there's a 100 lbs. limit for the OEM roof rack.

I had the same issue. On the driver's side it didn't sit completely flush at the front near the windshield. I even tried adjusting/tweaking on the front mounting bracket with no luck. I went as far as exchanging the whole rail and mounting bracket for new ones and it did they same thing. It doesn't even bother me know, hardly even know it's like that and I seem to be the only person who can see it. It doesn't effect any leakage or anything.

Nice write up OP!

I didn't have any problems with mine. It was probably the easiest 30 minute mod I have done. Good write-up by the way.

Nice write up OP!
I just installed mine last night and have the same problem. The right side fits tight and really snug, but the left side has a small gap and seems like it wiggles around a little bit. Im gonna try and play with it and see what i can do to make it fit better but its kinda odd that im not the only one with this problem!

And great write up btw!!! helped out a lot!
