Two Things - Roof Rails and Cup Holder
Posted 23 January 2004 - 11:46 AM
Second, and I am sure this has come up before, but is there a better option for a cup holder that anyone has seen. I know that the general complaint is that the cup holder interfers with something on the center dash, usually the radio or the heater controls, depending on location. Is there any better solution, e.g. an aftermarket center consol, or over e-brake cup holder? I do not want to go to Pep Boys/Autozone/Napa/etc. and get a cheap hang-in-the-window model, I would rather have a cleaner option. Any Ideas?
Thanks for your help in this matter.

My Forester took a tree hit directly on the roof rack. Didn't phase it! In fact it saved that side of the car from damage! I have the solid-low profile rack. It's strong!
Aren't the cup holders a great design! Mine both blocks access to my controls and blocks my vents!
They warm your soda in the winter and cool off your coffee in the summer!
I'm not sure I really had anything importent to say?
82 Hatch, well it used to be...
01 Forester, bent but not broken!

I don't mind thowing stuff on the seat beside me but with leather armoralled seats, everything goes quickly to the floor. Have you tried the nets on the backs on the seats? One dimensional items only please, and dont let any skinny maps fall down the long way in there. You'll be going to get a pair of rulers or once again maybe the assistance of a 3 or 4 yr old.
Cup holders??????The people in the back have to flip for the ONE back there in this lovely limited option package. I'd almost rather have none so neither felt jipped.
Want me to keep going? Alright I will.
I want the front suroof to slide back! I don't know who's idea it was to give all the fun to the backseaters but it's junk. Mine tilts like the 89 cherokee\laredo. It's junk. Give me one sunroof that's over me and slides back.
I'm going to stop now. She tracks straight and solidly and I love her. But if she soons blows a gasket or belt I will piss on her.

Also, yes, damn those cup holders. At least I can change the song or station if I only have one cup in the passenger holder.
You could buy one of those window ones and attach it to the side of the trasmission hump next to the shifter or something.
Can't help on the rack, though. I have a thule. it's nice.

As to the roof rails, I have found a way to remove them. There is a small plastic cover at the ends of each rail. If you remove that you can get at the screws under that and remove the whole roof rack. That allowed me to remove the two crossbars, but has left me with spaces in the rails themselves where the crossbars where. I am trying to hunt down some rubber to go in these holes, that matches the stock rubber from the roofrails, and does not cost 200$ that the dealer wants. I have put a Yakima rack on, and it works swell. I am very happy, and just need to work on the details.
Thanks again to everybody.
