I want to change the position of the cross bars on the roof rack. They came installed when I bought the 2019 Turing model Ascent new.

It looked straight forward enough. I backed out the bolts, but the bars are tight in place.

There must be a trick to

Then once I get them where I want them there seems to be an indicator on the wrench as to how much to tighten them,,,,,,,,,,8mm tighter?

I am not sure about how that works that either.

I saw one video on line about this, but it was not very helpful.

Any assistance would be appreciated.

Turn the bottom plate out of the way, and lift the cross bars off the rails.

In my case, the rubber "isolator" (for lack of a better term) that is part of the cross bars was stuck to the car and was peeling off of the cross bars. Just be careful the same doesn't happen to you.
