is that 10mm bolt under the cutout on top of the rail? just one?
I believe there are four per side. One under each cover, and one under each end cap. The end caps just pop off (snaps off) by hand. Takes a bit of side to side and muscle. I did the first one gently with a wrench or a flathead (don't remember) so I could figure it out how it works. Just snaps into place.

Roof trim also just snaps into place - which is why it was easy for some scalawag to steal one off of my car. No tools needed.

Did anyone end up doing this? Interested in doing it to my 2020 PHEV as I won't ever have a need to use them. Am definitely down to increase efficiency and mileage if possible too.

Plus I might go with chrome delete and think would look better IMO.

I want the roof rails OFF my 2018 EX Touring. I have no use for them, and they're in the way when trying to get snow off the roof in these upstate New York winters.

So ... based on what I'm seeing, a dealer should be able to get them off without going through the inside roof upholstery? Is that correct?
