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, 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 position.
To adjust the crossbars with botton style releases, depress
the button and slide the crossbar to the next locking
position. Alternate sides until the crossbars are posi-
tioned 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.
