hello there. Greetings from Greece. I recently owned a tucson my2019 without oem silver metallic roof rails. How can i remove the stock roof sills so i can place the rails? Is there any possibility to place them? :)

You CAN find some rails on ebay (example), but be careful not to buy the ones made out of ABS plastic, that just get fixed with double sided adhesive tape. They are only decorative and will NOT hold roof carriers, with a great risk of separating from the car at high speeds and damaging your belongings and cars behind you.
Here is a link to an OEM part site: https://www.partshyundai.com/v-2017-hyundai-tucson--limited--1-6l-l4-gas/body--luggage-carrier You can see it's affixed with screws and it totals about $460 in parts (plus labor)

So if you want them for carying stuff on the roof, you can just buy roof bars that fit on the roof without the rails (example from thule) it is much cheaper.

Those look like the real deal (not plastic - hence the price) but I don't know how you can mount them - I think you need to go to a dealership and ask around

i asked the dealer but he said me double the price than ebay.

if i dont find a solution about oem roof rails, i think i would install the decorative ones with 3m VHB and maybe drill them on car's molding trims.. :/

Did you find a solution? I am asking from Velmar the same thing and they say they cannot fix the rails because their online system does not allow to order the part.
I am writing in english because I don't know if the forum would allow me to write in greek...
Ευχαριστω!

I found some roof rails in aliexpress. They look like oem ones but you cant upload weight on them (no screws but douple tape fitment), only for decoration purposes. I' ll order them and I'll uplaod photos from fitment.
