I did see there was a similar thread a while back, but the answer there doesn't pertain to my situation. Thought I'd get that out of the way so that any responses aren't just links to that thread... ;)

I bought a 2018 Base Forester, so it didn't come with the side roof rails that other trims have. I later bought a pair of factory rails from someone whose 2017 was totaled and being parted out. Now I need to get them installed and don't want to do it myself.

So my question is, has anyone here done the same? And if so, did you take it to a body shop, off-road vehicle specialist, etc.? Dealership won't do it because it's not an included part on the vehicle I bought.

I know some might suggest just going with aftermarket ones such as Thule instead, but I already have these so I'm really just looking for answers about actually using factory roof rails. Thanks!

If you pay someone enough money they will figure it out. Not sure why you'd think a shop couldn't do it when several members have done it themselves....
