In Reply to: Question for MicahO-Touring Roof Rack posted by michi on October 17, 2001 at 06:21:28:
Let me know if you have any more questions, I can take some pictures of the filing on the foot base if you want. There is not much to be filed off of the slide nuts, but Chris is right - if you have a wheel to do it on it would be much better. I did it with a file and finger power, and it took quite a while.
I want to buy the Yakima rail rider #1 like you have. However, according to the directions with the product, there should be the slider/washer type things in the rail on the car for proper installation. I popped out the rubber pieces on my rails and I don't have these square/rectangular pieces to screw the rack in place. I am trying to figure out if this is something I need, or don't need to properly install the rack before buying it. Did you have these already? Or did you have to buy them? Do I need them? Hopefully you know what I am talking about.
Any help you can offer on this one is greatly appreciated.
