Roof rails

Hi all,

First thread here, I live in NY, I want to install the roof rails on my 15 MDX, but the OEM costs over $400, is there an alternative or where can I get some used parts?

Thank you!

Alternative? Not likely unless your willing to have butt ugly.
find them? Check with your local qrecking yard. They can post on their nationwide search site.
or, search for them on ebay, or one of the discount Acura parts dealers.

You can get Thule or Yakima roof rack that mounts roof between the roof and doors. They looks kinda ugly though. OEM is your best bet.

I do not like the look of the black OEM cross bars. I have my eye on steel ones as it gives it a nice look to match the chrome roof rails. They average in price from $180 to $200 on Ebay.

Here is a good video on a DIY. I plan on ordering this set and installing within the next two weeks. I got a Thule Pulse cargo box and needed the cross bars to support it. I'll post pictures when I'm done.

You are right, I have been doing a lot of research, some complained these crossbar will damaged the seal, and I am planning to leave the crossbar there without taking off. But luckily one of the salvage place just came in a 14 mdx with oem roof rail and crossbar, just order it, waiting to pick up.
