    Any have a Hyundai Santa Fe with a roof rack?

    I recently purchased a 2004 Hyundai Santa Fe and put my roof rack on. It came with roof rails but not the crossbars, so I had to buy aftermarkets. I have a Yakima upright rack, and a Rocky Mounts fork mount rack with the extended tray for FS bikes. The roof rails have a little sign on them that says "mount crossbars behind this point to reduce wind noise". Well my problem is that the tray on my fork-mount rack hits the rear window when I open the hatch, preventing it from opening all the way. Has anyone else had a similar experience, and does moving the racks forward actually effect the wind noise? I get a lot of wind noise as it is, but that might be from my snowboard rack.

    You have to turn your rack backwords in order for you to close your hatch. Meaning the front of the bike will be facing towards the back of you vehicle.
