Roof rail trim replacement

Hi

Can anybody tell me how to replace the plastic roof rail trim on an 06 civic. The previous owner has cut the trim to fit roof rail bars but took them off when he part ex it at the dealership. He put some plastic covers over the gaps but one has fallen out and looks crap, now I need to replace the whole trim strip, but don't know how you do it.

Any help greatfully received

the plastic covers come with the roof carrier kit, but are availalbe as spare parts in their own right, so maybe easier/cheaper just to get one of those from you dealer. They are about 11

Also ask him to print off the roof carrier fitting instructions off his intranet -shows you how to remove them.

Mostly hidden clip here and there. You'll be very lucky not to break the clips and/or damage the rail when removing it, but if you are getting a new one no problem....

if you do want to replace the entire rail, its about 70

Thanks Mr BG.
Will go to my dealer tomorrow. Lost one plug from my roof. Dealer said to me to replace entire rail (both sides) will cost me 200??? Bit too much.
