My 2001 has no roof rails and I wish to add them. I notice there are blanking plugs over where rails would mount.
If I were to find a Rav4 with roof rails in a junk yard how would I remove them? How do they attach? No word in Haynes on this.

There is a thread discussing removal here.

Thanks, but that thread is talking about removing cross beams. I'm talking about the rails themselves.
Probably some sort of cam-lock connection?

My bad I misread the other thread but there is a youtube video on a gen3 model that shows that the roof rails are held by 2 bolts (12 mm) on each end. Aside from removing the cover it looks pretty simple. The person removed the cover with a flat head screwdriver only. So the gen2 model should remove the same way.
