Have a look at newtis.info - it’s a copy of the BMW Service Manual used by Dealers.

will be removing my roof bars easy job no need to drop head lining , look on the inner edge of the roof bar you will see 3 rubber bungs prise these away then undo the bolts x3 lift off roof bar , then remove the brackets left bolted to the roof hey presto no roof bars , all you need to do is polish where the brackets used to be and seal and fit some bungs to cover the mounting holes .
