    You might try some silicone sealant around where the bolts attach to the roof. You can buy clear silicone so it will be nearly invisible.

    Yea! Just rip out that headliner, you'll have to throw out that one and get a replacemnt (who need a headliner anyway?), and remove the old bolts, drill out the roof sheet metal and tap new threads in the rack mounts...the originals are cheap...You know what? Just pull the rack off, plug the holes, and buy a Yakama or Thule rack! C.A.
