Will the roof racks work with my sunroof?
In many cases, the roof racks will be compatible with the sunroof version of a vehicle.

How do I stop the noise my roof racks make?
Our high-end roof racks have been designed with rubber inserts to reduce noise and prevent whistling. Incorrect installation is the most common cause of noisy roof racks. Check your product’s instructions to make sure the rubber strips are installed correctly in the channels both topside and underside of your roof rack bars. The rubber inserts should be cut to the correct length and fitted inside the channel so there are no gaps. Lastly, ensure your end caps are installed and locked before driving. If you want to further reduce wind noise, there are several WIND FAIRING options which can be found on at www.rhinorack.com.au
