Default Removing roof trim and installing roof rails...cut roof trim?

I just bought some used roof rails to put on my v70. They came off a XC70. I can see that I have to remove the rain gutter runner and cut it out to fit the footings on the roof rail. Has anyone else done this? Is it difficult to remover the runner and the clips? Where should I start? I have all the hardware.....12 torx screws and washers, which account for the two screws on each foot (3 feet per rail) and 2 rails. But I also have two left over torx screws without washers and I am not sure where these are going to be used. Should I let the volvo body shop guys do it? Is there a chance I could screw it up?

Default I have instruction sheet

If you have not completed the installation, I have the instruction sheet in .pdf format.
I do not know how to add it as a link here. Send me your e-mail address & I will send it back to you.
What language do you want?
Could you screw it up? Yeah, if you tried really, really hard.

I did this on my V70 and it's not hard at all. It should take you just a few minutes (15 maybe) to do the whole thing. And by the way, I didn't have to cut anything, just remove the old trim, all the way down to the bottom of the windshield, and install the new one. The mounting wholes might be hidden by some rubber, but they are there. Good luck.

I'm about to do this myself but can't find any instructions. Do you have any photos of the roof rail removal and install? Appreciate your assistance.
Regards,

Hi, I have a '99 V70 and some used euro rails and lots of clips and bits. I was wondering if you could possibly send me the link to the install instructions for the volvo roof rails?
Thanks for your help.
