Insert the key into the key slot in the front crossbar and unlock it.
Open the left and right foot covers of the front crossbar. Make fine adjustments to the position of the front crossbar, and then provisionally tighten the center fixing bolts (1 each at left and right) by hand. If the center fixing bolts are not tightened, loosen the crossbar fixing bolts to adjust the position.

Cut the wind noise prevention rubber to the same length as the crossbar.
Close the foot covers to lock them. (Turn to the right)
Install the rear crossbar to the vehicle in the same way.
Final Check After Installation
Shake the roof rack up, down and sideways to check that it's installed securely with no play or looseness. If the roof rack moves at this time, re-check the installation positions and installation method and the tightness of all parts according to the procedures in this manual to make sure that everything is installed securely.
The roof rack is not designed to directly carry the weight of the load being carried, so purchase separate attachments which match the loads to be carried, and install them to the roof rack.
The maximum laden weight is 75 kg (including roof rack (5.5 kg) and attachment). Do not overload the roof rack.
The rood rack may become loosened slightly during initial use, so be sure to tighten it. Periodically check the roof rack for looseness. (As a guide, check after each period of driving a distance of 1000 km)
If loading with long objects such as skis or masts, make sure they do not cause any obstruction when opening the back door.
