The relay switch itself is not...

    1994 XLT Explorer. How does one remove the Factory/OEM roof rack? Specifically, I'd like to remove the black rails inset in the roof. While the main outer rails seems to be fastened with philips screws, the inner rails seem to be fastened to the roof with rivets or ??. What is the best...
