2011 Rav4 Base Roof Rack Removal questions?
First, thanks to the members for the posts/threads and the pdf posted; i know where to start. My questions are bit different.
These questions are for someone who has already removed their roofrack and crossbars on their 2010 or 2011 model.
1. On the roof rack ends (where the crossbars are positioned), there are 2 allen screw. Can that just be unscrewed and the rail will come off ? That should leave the 4 "posts"/"ends" in place and i dont need to unbolt 2 bolts per "post"/"end".
2. If i take off all the 8 bolts, i should be able to put those back in with the crossbars off and the roof rack rails. But it will look ugly. Is there a flush part # / blanking plate to cover those 4 bolts? In some post, its mentioned about a sliding plate, is it true for 2010/2011?
Help & info much appreciated
