I just picked up a OEM roof rack and cant for the life of me figure out how to install it. It doesn't seem like the metal things inside the rack will reach to the factory holes. I have just discovered that i need plastic clips to complete the install. does anyone know where to get them?

The clips you need are metal and black in color.

The part number 00444-42965-AS is a kit containing those four clips along with the four large rubber feet.
They probably won't be available anymore though...

Thanks so much mate I'll call over to the dealership tomorrow and see if by any chance they can help me out. If not I guess just look out for another rack on rav driving around town.

It's tricky, at least the first time. You may have to adjust the depth of the locking mechanism that latches on to each of the black clips. When you close the lids each should give some but not too much resistance as each presses its base into a rubber block.

Hopefully you got the correct key with the racks too?

Despite being taller than average, I find standing on a short stool helps a lot in getting these things aligned, etc.
