ive just fitted roof rails to a van, they were also listed for car version, they are bolted from the top/outside, I would think they would all be the same fixings built into the body shell

I have taken mine off (to keep height down for Brittany Ferries). You have to grit yor teeth and lever off and slide forwards or backwards the front and back 'cowlings' using a thin bladed screwdriver. They have self locking plastic clips which have to be distorted to allow the first to release - it all becomes obvious when it is off! You think that it may break but it is probably stronger than you think.
You can then remove the bolts from above ie outside, from memory a torx head. You may need to find some extra SS bolts to put in the holes, as it is not clear if they are tapped blind holes (ie waterproof).

The other tip is to park it next to a wall or similar so that you approach it from above - unless you over 7feet tall.
