I just installed my roof rack. It went very well, thanks in great part to the posts here. No stripped screws, etc. :)

I do have a question though...
Step #11 of the install instructions says: "To reduce wind noise, cut the rubber molding from each roof rack and install the pieces of the rubber molding you just cut between the crossbars."

Can anyone explain what that step means? What rubber molding gets cut, and where do you install it? :confused:

Any reasonable explanations are accepted, but the truth is preferred. :D
It is not very clear but they mean the molding that you cut....

Pic #1 - Shows the molding in question

Pic #2 - Make sure your cross bars are facing the correct way. (red circle)

I gave up and removed my cross bars due to wind noise. (Since I bought them for looks anyway)

I'm wondering if they are talking about the rubber that is embedded in the top of the crossbars??? :confused:
Interesting.....It is not clear!

Has anyone had step #11 performed?

Step #11 - "To reduce wind noise, cut the rubber molding from each roof rack and install the pieces of the rubber molding you just cut between the crossbars."

So I guess they are saying that installing the molding in the channels will reduce wind noise......Any done this?

Do anyone have access to the Honda Tech Line to clarify this?
