Anybody know how to remove the Transverse Roof Bars? I don't need them permanently attached.
Have ordered touring pack and don't want them all the time either - be interested to hear how to remove them.Yes, it's the transverse (across the roof ones). They have a circular holes with 'lock' engraved on it and that is it! Once again I phoned the dealer and once again, guess what, no returned call!
I must have phoned then 20 times over the last weeks and have yet to be rung back!
I got those too ... And they look much more sturdy than the actual official Duster issue and a third of the price ... ( leans back and relaxes in smug self satisfaction )Lidl transverse roof bars that fit the Duster have circular holes at their ends. Once the lock (included with the bars) is turned (one side only) a long Allen key can be inserted to tighten/loosen the bars on the roof.
Damn, why didn't I check back on this thread yesterday! That is exactly what the dealer told me this afternoon, I actually got a call back!Couldn't wait, just been out to check and yes, they are unbranded thule 775. instruction pdf can be found here (http://www.roofracks.co.uk/Thule-Fit-Guide/_-/?make=Kia&model=Sedona&type=MPV&rails=with-roof-rails&modelYear=2002-plus&id=28#.UUY4CK1FCt8), to detach, grasp the end cap (underneath is best as it has a lip) and pull, it will come out and has a long allan key attached, pull all the way out. Insert the key in the bolt that is now visible and unscrew anti clock wise, unscrew it for a bit, as it loosens you can push the bolt back, as it does, the strap is then loose enough to un hook - voila! Mine are off now, so a howl free ride to work tomorrow.
I await with interest to see what the dealer provides in the way of keys!
