I am interested in the part numbers for the covers as well. Never been a fan of the bars either. Took the cross bars off when I got it home. Would like to get rid of them altogether

Did you first remove them or did you spray them in place? I think the chrome racks are the only bad looking part of the RAV. I also have a red one and would love to do them black. Was it difficult?

I had to remove them first, otherwise there would be lots of taping to do. Its not hard but you have to be careful prying the cap as not to damage or dent your roof.

May be someone should post a DIY for removing the roof rails if there isn't already one. Seems to be becoming a common mod.

I will try.. It's really simple, I just forgot what socket I used to remove the bars. I think it's a 12mm. Anyway, the things I used to remove them. 1) A towel ( to prevent damage on the paint. 2) fork (yeah, the one we use for eating) I just bent it a bit to get the shape I want as I don't have a pry tool for that job. 3) socket set 4) stool ( not the one that comes out of our a#* ) and that's about it. You will have to pry the covers as shown in the picture. Place the fork or whatever prying tool your using in between the rubber seal and the plastic cap. I started on the middle prying then sliding the fork to my right and back to the left until it pops out. Do not pull the covers upward. When the cover unclips, pull them to your right or left whatever side your facing. Then do the same for the rest of the covers. After you take out all the covers, get your socket wrench and start unbolting them. And the rest are pretty straight forward. First picture im showing is the slot where you have to insert the tool and pry. 2nd picture is where I started prying the cover. (in my case, the innerside of the bar close to my sunroof.) found it easier that way. I know this is not the best DIY but if you have Q's im here to help.
