ROOF LUGGAGE RACK — IF EQUIPPED
The crossbars and siderails are designed to carry the
weight on vehicles equipped with a luggage rack. The
load must not exceed 150 lbs (68 kg), and should be
uniformly distributed over the luggage rack crossbars.
Use both adjustable crossbars assemblies to support the
load and distribute the load as evenly as possible.
To adjust the crossbars with latch-style releases (if
equipped), release the latches on the inboard side of the
crossbar supports on each side of the vehicle, then move
the crossbars to the desired position. Once the crossbar is
in the desired position, return both latches to the locked
To adjust the crossbars with bottom-style releases (if
equipped), depress the button and slide the crossbar to
the next locking position. Alternate sides until the cross-
bars are positioned correctly for your cargo and the
stanchions are locked square to the slide rails.
External racks do not increase the total load carrying
capacity of the vehicle. Be sure that the total occupant
and luggage load inside the vehicle, plus the load on the
luggage rack, do not exceed the rated vehicle capacity.
NOTE: When the luggage rack is not in use, place the
crossbars together at the rear of the vehicle. In this
position they are designed to improve the vehicle aero-
dynamics and reduce wind noise.
