The rack is a standard Renault fitment and usually comes with 2 small black keys. I'm not sure if Renault could supply you with a replacement.

Could you track the previous owner from the log book and ask them where they kept it? It seems a little odd not to keep it with the car.

You could probably rip the covers off with a screwdriver, but it would render them useless.

Are these roof racks standard issue with the RX4 and will I be able to get a replacement key? Or is the lock of such poorness that I can undo it with some other means,? (screwdriver, corn beef can key etc?)

Heres a fix for 15

Agreed that it seems odd not to come with the car when the allen key was there, but we've had the car two years now and I think the chances of the previous knowing where it is is slim.

I may have a poke with a slim implement and see what happens.
