I know it's not the answer you want but the dealers will supply you with a set of bolts for your roof bars. They are a silly torx type though.

Re: Bolt Size for Scenic 2 Roof Bars?

Hi all,

Sorry not been on to reply.

I have used M6 x 20mm hex bolts (setscrews). I think 25mm ones would also fit, but might be pushing it.

I had some problems with a couple of the holes being a bit rusted up. Some people on other threads suggested a thread cutter, but I found that I got the bolts in with some WD40 and a bit of persistence, by working the bolt in and out several million times! It helps to use an electric drill but don't have the torque setting too high.

Hope this helps.

Sorry we've been away to north lake district for camping over the weekend.

Many thanks for further info. We did ring up our local dealer but only to be told that they don't sell just the bolts, they only sell the whole lot, roof bars and the bolts, together!! andy-fish, if you know a dealer who are willing to sell just the bolts, please let me know, that's the best and easiest solution!

Otherwise, I'll try to get what gringo1804 have suggested.
