I own a MK1 Scenic and bought a set of Renault Roofbars.
same problem ..To cut the rubber strips or buy a new set with the sliders.
I've not needed to use the 'bars yet. Since you have removed your rubber strips, tell me, do they have a specific function other than to cover the seams/welds of the roof panel ??
My thinking being that If that's all they do, once removed, why bother refitting them until the vehicle is sold on ??

Are those "bent metal bits" the fixing points for the roof racks? To me they look like the bits used to hold the strips (although there are three longer ones).
If the fixing points are indeed those longer ones (does anyone have a picture?) then I am aware that I'll also need to find newer strips with sliders (or get the knife out!). Does anyone know if other cars are using the same part maybe (in order to broaden the search)?

If you post some pics, it will be possible for a member with the same age scenic to compare and advice

The mounting points on my RX4 were as you say, bent bits of metal. They were straight and pointed vertically up with a square hole in iirc. The square hole was for the roof rack (in the case of the RX4) to attach to. I believe that the bars use the same fixings.

Unhappy Roof Bar Removal of trims?

Hi Guys

was wondering if anybody knows how to remove the roof bar and trim from my old scenic so I can put it onto my new scenic?Basically my car has been written off so I have replaced the car with a newer model 2002 dci fidji, it does not have the black sliders that you fit the roof bar to, so I was wondering if there was any way you could possibly remove the black rubber trims from one vehicle to the other if that makes sense?Many Thanks

Lever them up on the inner edge.

I just bought some bars of ebay not realizing how they fitted so i contacted a breaker on ebay and got some for a tenner, although postage was 30 as they are over 1.2 meters long, still Renault wanted 260 for the pair.

And to answer a question above yes the fix to the bent metal bits and the square hole just locates them.
