Hi Berushka, if your Espace has the factory fit bars then you need a set of adapters for ANY type of roofbox, dealer supplied or not. The adapters take the curve of the bar out and makes the base/floor of the box sit flat on the bars. They replace the normal "U" clamps that come with the roofbox ... they also fit bike carriers and ski racks.

The adapters for an Espace IV are ... 77 11 218 405 they cost approx 25-30 GBP

Remember the Espace can only take 80kg including the weight of the box on the roof.
Do a search on the forum, there is plenty of info on Espace factory roofbars vs Thule etc.

Hope it helps

Why is it the older I get .... the better I think I was ?
