Do you have the Q-clips installed on the towers?

The clips should have instructions on where they sit on the roof (measuring from the windshield and b-pillar or similar). They should also have the distances the towers should be apart on the bars.

Once you have the the rack sitting in the right place, you start gradually tightening the clips so that the pads remain centered on the roof.

When you get both bars/towers clamped on there, then you install your bike mounts. The bike mounts will hold the whole rack together if removed, so it's pretty easy to pull off for cleaning and easy to reinstall.
