impreza 02 roof rack fitting....

hi....

I've just bought a subaru mont blanc roof rack but i dont know how to lift the rain gutter on the roof to fit the little clips to the roof...

Anyone got any ideas how I lift the rain gutter to get to the fitting underneath?

Cheers, Dan

Fitted two racks to other cars normally if you hole the rain gutter while pushing it back towards the back of car it unclips itself or normally get a blunt flathead screwdriver and wrap a rag at the top of it so it wont damage paintwork and gently prise it off just watch the clips they break easily under rain gutter treat this job with TLC can be a bit tidious but should get it out thats how we normally do it but prise the rain gutter gently as if you dont it will damage paintwork and can mark it hope it helps
