I wanted to remove my roof rack as well, but that link is no longer working.
Can anyone offer some assistance. I went to a toyota dealership but they advised against it because someone else did it and then had a leak in his roof. But I see others have done it successfully.
Is it possible to just remove the crossbars? I noticed some screws under each crossbar. Anybody know if these will loosen up the crossbar so that it can be removed. I am hoping to improve gas mileage on the highway.
Thde roof rack can certainly be removed.
I removed mine 2 years ago.
It will cost about $50 to do it right though.
After it is removed you will need to cover the hole locations (4) with covers (4) , cover mounting brackets (4), and shorter water sealing bolts (8).
I have never had any leak problems.
If anyone is interested, I can look up the part numbers.
As I said, this is the correct Toyota way.
