Welcome to the Forum Biggdan. :wavey:
I'm not sure if it can be removed. I've never really looked that closely at mine.
I'm guessing that it is likely bolted into the roof or roof structure.

I suppose one could open their garage door to about 68 inches and take a run at it. :D (......just kidding of course)

Perhaps another member may have some insight into this matter.
Good luck.

Hmmmmm, do you want to remove the whole luggage rack or just the cross bars ???
 






Entire rails removed:

Now I see why it needs to come off, thanks for the pictures. The only reason I need it is for the Christmas tree once a year. Would be nice to remove it to give it that sleek low look.
 






Buy an artificial tree and sell the rack on ebay
 






I need to remove the entire thing because I'm installing a police light bar. I know it comes off because I had someone at a body shop partially remove it once before but I didn't see how he did it.
