Just remove one of them, take it to your local hardware store to match it ( remember, they are metric).

i just mounted vantech racks on my 2016. holes are not threaded (had to get nuts, washer and lock washers) size of bolts were m8. i believe after 2014 there is no threaded holes. install was fairly simple.

Any details, pictures or advice on your install would be most welcome!

I'm considering mounting some stainless studs in the holes in the roof which I would use to mount removable crossbars on when I need to haul something large on the roof (lumber, kayaks etc) and then removing the crossbars when not needed, leaving just the studs sticking up a couple inches or so.  Did you have any trouble getting under the headliner to install the nuts on the interior?  What did you use to waterproof the installation?  Backing washers on the top and bottom of the roof?  Details, details!

Thanks!

Don

Locking nuts are a must.
