Help with taking off the roof rack/cross bars

12-20-2003, 03:46 PM
Just bought a new H2 last night and already loving it...but we'd like to take the roof rack/cross bars off. It just barely fits into the garage and we'd like to have a little more room.

We looked all over and couldn't figure out how to take them off, so can anyone help with some directions?

please & thank you!

First get a cold beer and a ladder.

I've done it by standing on the rear tire, but it's not the safest way to go.

At the end of the guide rail at the top of the vehicle, closest to the red trim roof light, is an end cap with a spring clip. Using your finger or small flat tip screw driver, you can flex the clip forward and use the small round hole to lift the end cap off. This should work.

Once the end cap is off, you can loosen the cross bars and slide to the back and remove. You'll probably need another set of hands to help move the rail the rear so it stays parallel and doesn't pinch.

Good Luck.
