Hi
Looking for some help getting these suckers on right. I have done the search, checked the stars, seen the palm reader and still no luck.If anyone has a bit of description on how to install I would be grateful.

Wrap a long blade screw driver with electric tape, you'll need it. Install the end that does not have the adjustment holes, then, while somebody holds the decklid up, use the taped screw driver to slightly bend (it gives a little) and control/pry the adjustment end into the slot it rides in AND also put the tension end into one of the tension slots.

Hey
Thanks for the replie, did as you posted and it works fine. The bars are on the lowest tension setting but the trunk stays up ok so will be leaving it at that.

Thanks Mate
