F02 Roof Rack?
 
Has anybody put a roof rack on their car for skis or snowboards? I've been looking on both the BMW parts site and Thule site and nothing...I hope I don't have to use the ski bag, that is going to be a drag on capacity.:dunno:

Nevermind this post, I just found that someone previously answered my question. Apparently BMW has one from 2013.

I have a 2012 with the roof rack. Just be certain all the parts are installed at the factory to mount it. inside the little track doors are supposed to be a black mounting bracket that receives the roof rack clamp. It is a separate order code (mine was missing the brackets but the order code is listed on the build sheet). we are still trying to sort this out.

i think i paid about $275 for the rack.

FWIW I had a rack on my previous E66 and it works great; quiet and solid as fast as you want to go! :)

You might have to call BMW to get a fitment for a 2013; the book only showed up to 2011 when I purchased.

Good Luck!

Did you ever resolve the roof rack issue? I've found I have the same problem...

Let me know if you want the service report for part numbers. BTW, BMW paid for all the missing parts!

I just returned from an almost 2,000 mile trip over the holidays. The rack and box work well, not much noise and stay put at over 90 mph.:)

part numbers
 
these are the part numbers for the repair:

qty
4 41-21-7-198-335 roof rack bracket
7 51-13-7-217-789 clamp
5 51-13-7-184-575 clamp
4 51-13-7-232-420 clamp

?? 07-14-7-207-986 torx bolt

that is all the info on the SO. They told me it also required a special adhesive.

I noticed on our showroom that the pre-2012 models already had the brackets. ironically a 2013 Alpina had them!

Hey Mike, I just purchase the BMW roof rack system from my local BMW Parts desk. When I opened the 4 covers on the roof to access the holes to screw the bracket into. There are no holes. Do you know anything about this. Thanks.

I'd like to know some more info as well. I ordered a rack and there was no place to secure it to under those little flaps.

justmike 01-19-2015 06:55 PM

Sooty hadn't seen this post.

My car didn't have any "cleats" inside the roof flaps. They had to install the parts I listed earlier.

Only way I found the fix was looking at a different car on the showroom floor and then bringing the parts guy out there

Good luck!

gaber228 01-19-2015 07:07 PM

Thanks for the response. I brought the car to the dealer with no luck. They informed me that the mounting brackets don't coincide with my F02's build date :rolleyes:, and that the only way for me to use the OEM BMW roof rack that I already purchased would be to bring the car to a body shop for a "custom" mounting bracket :rofl:.
