Removing Roof Cross Bars

I have a 2007 Grand Cherokee that came with factory installed cross bars. I recently purchased a Yakima Low Rider system with Yakima Cross Bars. I want to remove the factory cross bars, but cannot get them off. I've loosened the wheel on each side only to find them still firmly attached. Anyone know how?

You have to pull the little hollow pins that go in the end pieces. They're pounded in during installation.

I know what you're talking about, but I can't get at them. They're too far into the housing. I guess the factory pounder was a little heavy handed on my model.

Pop the plastic caps off the front of the side rails. There are two torx screws unerneath. Remove them, pop the rails up, and you can remove the crossbars. Then replace the screws, and pop the caps back on.

Did mind today...
