    taking Saris roof rack apart???

    i have 702 rails im putting on a smaller car. it wont fit by like 1/2" to 1" clamping due to running out of thread. Has anyone taken one of these apart? my friend does machining and can make the threads longer no problem. just need to open this up. I have taken the end caps off with the T15 torx bit. yet thats as far as far as i have gotten. Looked for hidden screws in the rails without luck.
    Thanks!!

    I have a similar issue. My old rack (901 rails) won't fit my brothers car by 1/2" at most because it is too short. But as you have found, there doesn't appear to be any way to take it apart. I think it is either pressed together or screwed together somehow.

    Want to trade racks?
