Snag a set from a salvage yard, will be way cheaper.

Ok, I'm going after a set of factory roof rails from a salvage yard. Does anyone know what size the allen bolts are that hold the rail to the roof? Are they truly allen and not torque's head. Just want to take the right tools the first time. Yes, I have to take them off. Got a steal, $100.00 for the silver limited rails.

They are Allen head. Can't say on size. Really try to get the bolts and black gutter trim and clips that all go with the rails. The covers to the bolts pops off with a tiny flathead screwdriver. IIRC the black gutter trim pops up at the front but slides back at the hatch in order to get off. Good luck.

And remember, the long black gutter trim between the rail feet is held down with a 2" long super sticky foam tape. Not a clip so it's not gonna just pop up. I suggest considering a thin shim to get under the trim and slowly separate it rather than pull up hard from above. The trim may buckle sharply and discolor if you pull up hard all ape-like. Again, It's easy. Yet easy does it with handling trim.

Removing Roof Rails

Hello! I'm looking to remove my silver roof rails on my 2015 UK renegade so i can plasti dip them black (will be easier to spray the underside). Anyone done this and know if it's as simple as just unscrewing from the top or are there some screws inside the vehicle too? Thanks in advance! :)

Simple as removing the snap caps and unscrewing. Leave the black seal and trim alone. Just lift up. Easy.
