How to Replace the Rack on a BMW Vehicle

8

The roof rack on a BMW is used to store luggage, sports equipment and other gear that can’t fit inside of the car. When the rack is damaged or installed improperly, hauling cargo on top of the car is unsafe. Luckily, replacing the rack is a fairly simple process. All you need is a few tools and about a half hour of time.

Tools Used: Tools, Appropriate roof rack kit, Screwdriver, Adjustable wrench, Measuring tape

Replace the Rack

Remove the Old Rack

Unfasten the bolts holding the rack bars onto the feet using an adjustable wrench. The feet are the blocks mounted to the roof of the BMW.
