Avalanche power corrupts...


Awards
« on: 10/24/07 08:40 AM »


I'm picking up my new Avalanche tomorrow morning, my buddy also has an 07' and both of us have the factory cross rails installed.

What is not obvious to me, is how to take those rails off when you aren't using them.   I get how to slide them back and forth, but it almost appears that you have to unbolt the roof rack itself to slide the rails off.

Thanks in advance!

Pick an end, front or rear, and remove the mount.  That allows the side rails to have an exposed end that you can slide the crossrails off from.  Then reattach end cap to side rail and reattach to roof.
