Cross rail removal help
Hey guys, Im looking to remove my cross bars off my '09. Any suggestions besides loosening the circular knobs? I tried this and it wouldnt come off.

KITSOS, do yourself a favor and drill out both sides of the pin. so this way you can either grab an end and puyll the pin out. or use something from the other side to push it out.

i had one easy pin, and one impossible pin. never again once they are drilled out. it took about 30 seconds, and willfix them forever......

I know you can get the crossbar off by lifting the end of the rails. thats what i had to do!

or theres a clamp when you loosen the wing type nut then it should pop out

Unless someone pushed in the hinge pins on the clamps, you just remove those hinge pins as well as loosenin the knob and the clmap itslef will com appart. You should even see a textured surface on the pins end...those are for the pliers to bite onto. Now if someone pushed the pins allthe way in... then it gets more interesting to remove. drilling out the other end would help you by giving space to insert a punch to knock the pin out...

Only other method is to remove the rail end caps and slide them off that way....

I hope someone did push your stuff in :D
