Roof rack wind noise

luggage RACK WIND NOISE.
hi ALL I JUST BOUGHT A NEW 2016 OVERLAND DIESEL GRAND CHERAKEE. I HAD THE DEALER INSTALL A ROOF RACK AND NOW I HAVE A LOT OF NOISE (VIBRATION). THE CROSS BARS WERE PUT ON BACKWARDS. I THOUGHT THAT WOULD CORRECT THE PROLEMS. IT DID NOT STOP THE NOISE. dOES ANY ONE HAVE THE CORRECION TO THIS PROBLEM. I REPOSITIONED THE FRONT BAR BACK ABOUT 6 IN. BUT STILL NOISE.
tHE DEALER IS NOT THE SMARTEST.
WHAT EVER SUGGESTION WILL BE APPRECIATED
pAUL

If you can post a picture of your racks it will help folks diagnos the problem.
Are the rubber strips in place along the top of the crossbar?

Re: Roof rack wind noise

Yes the strips are in place and the thicker edge of the cross bars is facing forward like an airplane wing. The rack is manufactured by Mopar. Does the placement of the bows have any particular position??
