So, here's how you start. Use a screwdriver to pop off the end caps from the factory rack
Thanks...DaleB said:Very nice install, Ard. Looks much better than those 'angled' clamped on jobs I've seen on MDXs around town.
I can't imagine skis 'quieting things down'... When I add the skis it is noisier- also, since it only takes 3-4 minutes, I always remove the ski rack when I don't have skiis to haul-zafer said:I'm back to using cork-board so the ski rack is flush to the MDX's rack. With the spacers, there is a very annoying constant whistle noise, almost at all speeds.
Yes, I know- it is worse with skis on mine. I was responding to your post a few up:zafer said:
The whistle noise is with or without the skis, just the rack with the spacers causes it.
If I recall, the factory rack mounts with either hex driver or Torx heads... not quite standard fare-norcalchuck said:
However, I suppose locks just keep honest people honest and a determined thief will succeed. Wonder if anyone ever heard of someone simply unbolting the factory rack assembly while the vehicle was, for instance, parked overnight while on a road trip.
