Genuine Kia Sportage Roof bars: How to fit


Welcome to Jennings Kia today we are going
to be fitting a set of roof bars to a Kia Sportage The bars come partly pre-assembled we do have stickers on the bottom of the bar to indicate
where you need to put the bars. This one indicates rear left so this needs
to go on the rear left-hand side of the car. There is two slots/holes cut into the back
of the rail, they are there to help you guide where the rail needs to be, you need to put
the rail across the centre of the two holes. Once the rails are positioned you lift the
locking mechanism up turn it clockwise just hand tight to lock the rail in place.
Once that’s done you take the key that comes with the kit and turn roughly 90 degrees to
lock the locking mechanism in place. Once the roof bars are installed you remove
the end caps by just giving them a wiggle out. You then can install the top seal by just
simply sliding it in feeding it through All the way across.
Once that’s installed you can the refit the end cap. Again for the rear bar remove the end cap and slide the seal in and then pop the end
cap back in. Supplied in the kit to fill the gaps on the
underneath of the bar is some plastic shroud I’ve pre-cut these but you will need to
cut them to size and just simply slot them in. And that’s it we’re all done.

  2. Hi, do you have to push out the holes on the roof rails of the car? The holes on my Kia Sportage rails are still intact.Thanks
