Removable roof rails for Liberty wagon

Asked by Campbell Hutchison

Our 2004 Subaru Outback was written off after being badly damaged in the recent hailstorm in Melbourne and we have updated to a 2008 Liberty wagon. We regularly transport bicycles on the weekends, but don't want the bars on the roof during the week, and the Outback bars have a hand twist and key lock arrangement that makes them much easier to attach and remove than the bolted rails on the Liberty. Is it possible to fit the Outback-style roof rails to a Liberty wagon?

We asked Subaru and the short answer is no. They told us that the roof cross bars between the Liberty and the Outback are different, as are the way they mount to the roof. Your Outback has a rail system, similar to current Outback and Forester, whereas the Liberty screws into the roof. With two different attachment systems, they cannot be interchanged.
