Srt8 Roof Rail help
I just put my new srt8 roof rails on, and theres seems to be a minor problem. When i tightened the bolts and looked at it, the middle of the rail was bent. It looked a little like the letter U, but upside-down. I loosened the blots and the curve went down just a little. And ideas why this is happening to me?? Or am i missing a piece or two?

Re: Srt8 Roof Rail help
I had the same problem as I installed 2nd hand SRT rails, The 3m tape had lost some of its adhesive.
The rail curved up from the roof due to the heat during the day,I loosened the 3 rear most screws and used a flat screwdriver to lever the rail backwards and tightened the rails down.
They have been OK since, I didnt want to stick the rails as they are a summer only accessory re installing roof rails in winter for the snowboard roof box.

Re: Srt8 Roof Rail help
would you suggest using 3m tape? and what do you mean you levered the rail backwards?

to help bond 3M so it doesnt come out use cement paste/ comes in a little black bottle and has a brush applicator in it...apply it evenly to the 3M sticky side and/or the area you are placing it down and walla it aint coming out...

This was used to put on my CF rear step/CF Mirror Covers/ Emblems/CF Front lip strip and they are snug tight.
