MY wife and I purchased an '07 CX-9 GT AWD a couple of months ago and it did not come with the factory roof rack. I would like to install the factory roof rack so that I can mount our Thule Weekender cargo box for vacations.
I can see where the rubber strips on the edge of the roofline have plastic clips that can be removed to reveal tapped holes (3 on each side of the roof). Is this all that needs to be accessed for installing the OEM roof rack? Is the installation this simple (ie., no drilling of the roof and no removal of headliner, etc. in the interior)? Has anyone on this forum installed the OEM rack by themselves?
Thanks in advance!
