Are you aware that GM makes side steps specific to the Bravada, or do you not like the Bravada side steps? I like the option of having clear anodized aluminum myself. In case you were not aware of them here's the part numbers.
12497680 clear anodized Side Steps
12497681 black anodized Side Steps
There's a picture of the clear anodized steps on a black Bravada if you click on the Spin Around Town: 2002 Oldsmobile Bravada link on the top left of this web page.

Thanks for the info and part numbers. gmpartsdirect said GM wasn't making those steps for the Bravada - all they showed were the TB and Envoy. The part numbers certainly show otherwise so I'll get back with them.
The steps shown in the photo are what I'm looking for - same as brochure.
#4221 of 18329 Roof rack question
Feb 26, 2002 (7:15 am)
I know that maybe somehow it has been mentioned but because Edmunds has no search feature I want to ask. Last night out of curiosity I looked at my roof racks and found taht they are indeed backwards, however, How do you remove them? I lifted the tabs on each side but this only helps them slide back and forth. How do I remove them to switch them over?
Thanks in advance!

Take off the covers at the front of each rail using a flat head screwdriver on the inner notch. Be careful not to snap any of the notches (3 in all I think). Once they are off you can undo the latches on the rails, and they will slide all of the way off. Turn them around, and put them back on. Shouldn't take more than 15 mins.

I ordered my Bravada side steps from gmpartsdirect.com (12497680 clear anodized Side Steps).
They came in 5 days. I haven't put them on yet though.
Another note, I FINALLY received a pinout/wiring diagram for the Bose 6 disc in dash head unit. There are AUX R/L pins, so it does look like it can be rigged to accept a line input signal (for mp3 players).

I picked up my Envoy 2 weeks ago. It has a build date of 1/02. According to what I've been reading here, my roof rails are reversed. There are no arrows stating which direction they're supposed to point. The manufacturer must have removed them, probably to stop this confusion. There must be some reason GM decided to install them this way. I stopped by the dealer and noticed that all were installed like mine. Since they don't make any noise, I'll leave them alone.

All the TB's at the Chevy/Old's dealer I went to yesterday had them on backwards, but what was even stranger... The Bravada's were all on the right way! I asked about it, but their response... "They came that way from GM!"

Thanks so much!
My roof rails have an arrow that says "FRONT" so I know mine are backwards and that is why I have wind noise issues. I will fix it tonite and test it.

don't forget to move the front rail about 1/2 back on the rack to minimize interference with air coming up and over the w/s.

Could you please send the source for the pinout/wiring diagram for the Bose 6 disc CD changer? Thanks
