Instructions for roof bars

I ordered a set of the OEM Kia roof bars for my Niro and they arrived earlier this week. However, I did not receive any instructions with them, and I'm wondering if anyone else has ordered the same bars? If so, do you have a copy of the instructions that you'd be willing to scan and share?

Thanks in advance!

You put then on and tighten the allen screws. No instructions with mine either.

Rather an off handed reply... you did not mention the directional arrows nor spacing. Anyway... those were concerns I had and the dealership I used (Barnett Kia in White Bear Lake MN) installed them incorrectly.

I had put out a similar request and someone was kind enough to share this with me.

Thanks! I did note the arrows, but wanted to make sure I was mounting the bars correctly. The instructions seem like they will be very helpful.

Didnt really worry about arrows or spacing, as long as they fit and stay in place, they are doing their job.


I set my spacing based on the kayak, not on any generic assembly instruction.


Its really nothing to get worked up over.
