Removing roof rack from 09 Vibe?

Postby musicmanmu » Wed Sep 17, 2008 10:52 pm

I'm hoping to get a Vibe GT, but in the event I don't, there's a nicely-equipped base model I can get. But, it has a roof rack, which I don't really need or want.

Can the dealer remove roof racks from an 09 Vibe? And if so, does it leave any holes in the roof of the car?

Thanks!

They can remove the roof rake, the attachment points are covered with plastic caps.

If you decide you want to sell it, let me know, I may be interested in it!

I have a 2009 without the rack and would like one now.

I'll let you know - but right now it's looking more likely that I'll get a GT after all...

I thought the '09 GT came standard with the roof rack?

I just bought my '09 GT, and I'm looking for a good rack solution. The local parts dept doesn't even have a listing for a roof rack for the 09 GT.

I believe the AWD comes standard from the factory with the roof rack; while the base models have to be ordered with it from the factory. As for the GT?

It will not be listed under the GT; it will be an option for the Base and AWD Models. There is not reason why it could not be used for the GT in my eyes.

I thought it was listed as an accessory on some of the Pontiac Websites, but it isn't. For some reason, I thought would could be added later without having to drop the headliner.

Toyota offers a set up that can be purchased separately. Will the Matrix version fit the Vibe? I would guess yes, but I am not 100% sure. The roof lines look very similar
