Trouble with my roof rack

I have a yakima roof rack on a volvo s40. the clips of the towers keep causing my weather stripping to rip. I and two local bike shops have adjusted the rack until we are blue in the face. I talked to yakima and they weren't very helpful. I'm not sure what to do, or if I'd have better luck with Thule?????? Please any suggestions are welcome!

I had that problem on one of my vehicles. I got some of the thick, harder , self-stick weatherstripping and put on the inside of the clips where they touch the cars weatherstripping. It worked for me.
