1995 SL2
1999 SL2
Default Roof Rack

Hello all,
It has been a while. Life, college, work, it all really seems to take up free time, leaving little to myself or to put towards the car.
Looking forward to the spring and summer, I have been trying to find a good roof rack for my 1995 Sl2.
https://www.facebook.com/marketplace...0664608666095/
We have this exact one, but it has clips for a 1999 Sl2.
My question is, were there clips made for this rack for a gen 1 sl2?
We have a bunch of accessories for it, and if I can get this rack, then both my brother and I would have racks for our saturns.
Thanks,
Chris

The Saturn accessory racks (OEM) were made by Saris. Post 3 in this thread indicates that they did make clips for GEN1 and that your best source is to find them used. Saris no longer lists roof racks on their website.

Edit: Found this fit guide for Saris >> Saris Fit Guide. Looks like you're looking for clip 21.

I see he uses size 18 clips, would they suffice? Any experience?

I can't see why not, he confirmed that it works for his 95 sedan. He thinks it's better than the one spec'd for Saturn.

There is a set of 2 on ebay for $7.50 at the moment. You'd have to find another set to make it work but for under $10 you can experiment and decide if you want to seek out the second pair.

The other option mentioned is the Yakima clips modified to work with the Saris rack. You'd need 2 sets of Q13 as per 91-95 Yakima Historical Fit

For future reference since Yakima has discontinued the Q towers used with the S Series; here are the Q clip fits for all Saturns. This is buried within there website but I imagine it will eventually disappear.

Default Re: Roof Rack

Thankfully I bought a Thule roof rack for the Saturn years ago. I think that it would not be impossible to fabricate a new set of clips out of 4130 and heat them up to bend them. I went a decade without using the rack and lost one of the rubber fit kit parts. I made a new one from the cushion part of an old running shoe.
