    Default Roof Trim Covers

    The roof rail on my CR-V (2008 EX) has 4 rectangular roof trim covers that you remove to install a roof rack (OEM or after-market). There also are several square roof trim covers, only some of which seem to be removable.

    What is the purpose or function of those square roof trim covers?

    First guess: They stop the rack from whistling when traveling at speed?

    I'll bet they are explained in the Dealer PDI sheets, if you can get your hands on them. It's not mentioned in the Owner's Manual ?

    First, read the Owner's Manual, then SEARCH, maybe your Internet is faster than mine ?

    I believe they cover the nuts/bolts that hold the molding on. Check the link below.
