    I just installed a OEM roof rack and during the install I had to remove the rack. When I put the rack back on the rubber washers on one side got a bit messed up. I just want to know if i should order new ones and reinstall. Just afraid that them being compromised can cause a leak. What is your guys input on this?

    Pics? How bad did they get "messed" up. Use your best judgement on whether or not the gasket will seal.

    How much for a new part? Might be cheap and safe insurance just to replace it.

    I should have taken pics, I dont think there to bad they where more or less they way the should be just mashed up form being put on earlier. I may just buy new ones there only 2cents or may just use some calk.
