Hi all–
I received and installed my luggage cross bars today. I placed them at the outer positions both front and back and WOW! What a racket coming from above. With all of the emphasis GMC put on the quietness of the Terrain cabin, these things certainly break the silence. I found a mention of possibly installing them "backwards" would create more wind noise, but I don't see how it's possible to install them "backwards".
I may take them off if I don't plan on using them for a while.

It is possible to install them backwards. Look for the arrow on the top of them.

You won't hear any noise if they are oriented in the right direction, and you will if they aren't. Simple as that.

I'll have to reverse mine just to see the difference. See if the wife notices !
