2015 SRT Broken Roof Racks

Yesterday I noticed that both of my roof racks are broken. They are each broken at the front bolt. It looks almost as though the plastic surrounding the bolt broke off from the rack rails. I will post photos in a little bit. My only thoughts are that this may be ice related.

Re: 2015 SRT Broken Roof Racks

Mine are broken as well but it was due to the wind from driving on the highway.....

Re: 2015 SRT Broken Roof Racks

How is the wind damaging these so badly?

Re: 2015 SRT Broken Roof Racks

I had the same thing, but in the rear and just on one side.

After a repair attempt by the dealer, they replaced the entire roof rail assembly under warranty.

Re: 2015 SRT Broken Roof Racks

I think they repositioned the rail and re-tightened the screws. It lasted for a few weeks before it popped loose again, and a new part was ordered and installed after I brought it back to the dealer (for other reasons...had the fender peeling away issue).

I did not lose any of the screws, so it was just a replacement of the plastic cover part.

Seems to be holding up for now, but this was only about a month ago...so we'll see if it holds up over the long-term. I usually check it when I wash it...so weekly or so.
