Look in owner manual, and maybe sticker on the main rails, if not molded in the rails.

I feel like a broken record. What year Santa Fe? We can't read minds here.

Try checking your owners manual under "ROOF RACK"

This is what I find in the 2006 (1st generation) manual = 75 lbs (34 kg) EVENLY DISTRIBUTED

This is what I find in the 2008 (2nd generation) manual - 220 lbs (100 kg) EVENLY DISTRIBUTED

Default not just rails, cross bars weight rating as well

2010
I found the rating for "roof rack" on my manual but I am referring to the crossbar rails or bars that slide along the the track that runs the length of the car.

I've called 3 different dealerships, including where I bought my 2010 Santa Fe. One the parts dept. never answers phone or returns my messages the others don't know.

That number is for both the rack and the cross bars.
220 lbs (100 kg) EVENLY DISTRIBUTED

Thanks, cross rails aren't shown in image on manual nor are they mentioned in the text so I didn't want to assume the 220lb rating included cross rails.
