Do Not Sell My Personal Information Jump to content

Recommended Posts

I finally removed my roof rails after 3 years of wanting to do so. This is for a 2007 RX350. Here are some pictures and a procedure for those who may want to do the same.

1. At the rear of the roof rack driver side, grab the rear black covering, lift slightly and pull towards the rear of the car. With some encouragement it will come off.

2. Do the same for the passenger side.

3. Remove the bolt in the pathway that would prevent removal of the rails. Removal of the yellow plastic piece is not necessary.

4. Slide the racks off.

5. Install the rear black covering by sliding it forward. You may have to press or bang the rear of it with your hand to get it all way in.

6. Done!

nice writeup

I did exactly the same process a few weeks before I saw your guide. However I couldn't remove the end 'cap' without breaking one of the clips inside. The cap still stays on, but not quite as firmly as before.

I took the roof rails off to reduce weight, and also wind noise.
