Im pretty sure the plastice rails are self explanitory but Im not to sure how to remove the black strips on the roof. Just wondering if there is a diy or thread that shows a step by step.

Black roof strips? This is something our '98 has, but not our '04 XT... it came only with the aluminum rails that support the crossbars. :confused:

My 04 XT has them as well. IIRC, they're just stuck to the roof with double stick tape or something similar. I think only models that came with the crossbars and no sunroof had them.

Are you guys talking about the two silver (body color) rails that goes front to back of the car? Or the two black bars that goes across?

I've been trying to figure out how to take the silver ones out. Does it do anything bad to gas mileage or wind resistance? I wonder how one without looks like.
