Pay attention to the bottom part - that's where the thing gets snagged, especially when re-installing.
Is a bigger PITA to re-install than to remove, I did use a little bit of force to remove it.

Roof racks...

What is a good roof rack for the XF cars?
I noticed the strips on top of the roof - are these removable to allow for the mount of a roof rack... or you need a clamp on the door frame system?

I'm pretty sure you can... you have to disconnect the fuel system first though.
I don't want to risk it either way - I doubt either one of you would have the same issues as I have... I am blaming it...
