removing roof rails.

Anyone have instructions or just an explanation on how to remove the factory roof rails?

Cheers.

Re: removing roof rails.

I wish there was an option to have the factory not add them in the first place and offer a sunroof instead!

Re: removing roof rails.

I've sussed it out.

The end caps just pull up from the screen ends and then you remove them.
Revealed are Allen bolts.

5 minute job to get them off.

No sorry, I just wanted them off so I can change the colour of my roof with the rails out of the way.

Nice one! Think they look sweet. I also like the matt purple wing mirror covers and purple hub caps that Fiat Accessories have for sale. My wife agrees they would look good with our blue car...

Look at us poncing around with our Pandas eh? You can tell we used to have 500s!

Re: removing roof rails.

That is a bargain! Thanks for spotting them for me. Whole load cheaper than the ones sold on the Fiat Accessories site!

Really! 90 quid....is that from your local vehicle graphics company? I was wondering who I should go to. I am thinking of having a webasto folding sunroof too, this will be black of course so will tie in nicely.
Although I emailed 2 of their agents for info and prices over a week ago and have not heard from either - not promising!

Re: removing roof rails.

Yes, vinyl , I'll remove the roof rails to make it a little easier for them.
Unsure how they'll work around the aerial though?

Hmmm that's a point. That could scupper my webasto 400 sunroof idea too....

Just had a quote for black vinyl to roof & top of tailgate for £190....I've got to remove roof rails (no problem it seems??) AND the aerial otherwise there is join in the vinyl. Can it be removed??
Also can't decide of matt or gloss black would look best with orange.
Mind you its a nonstarter if the aerial can't be removed v easily!

Re: removing roof rails.

You may have to lower the headlining to remove the antenna base.
Mine was supposed to go in Friday, but is postponed till next week
