I do have the fixings in the roof for bars so would have thought that it would be possible to use roof bars otherwise why are they there? Will borrow a friend's roof bars and see if they fit.
Thanks for the help guys

Yes it will have the fixings as Renault would not make a separate roof to save costs as you will find in most cars mouldings/ fixings are there on all models but items not fitted, I would consult with Renault as you do not want the roofbars to detach or structural damage done to your car which would not be covered by your insurance or a possible accident while travelling which could be quite catastrophic to other road users .

I've just checked the Scenic Accessories booklet and it shows the roof bars on a scenic WITH a panaramic sun roof. So a Renault set of bars should be ok. As I sais before I'm sure it's to do with the chance of a long fixing bolt etc interfereing with the glas roof if opened and breaking the roof. Give it a try with your friends bars but as i said Don't fix it in place until you have checked it won't be hit by the roof or won't rest in the roof.
by the way the renault bars were £100
good luck

Question Renault Scenic 2 - Roof Bar Fitting Information

Hi, I've not been on here much, and in fact the main reason I joined was to find an answer to the question of roofbars for a Scenic II with panoramic sunroof.

Well, I could not find the answer here, so I am now posting one myself!

I have got hold of a set of Automaxi Supra No47 roofbars. They are just plain square section without locks, but they do the job.

The main problem with the panoramic sunroof and roofbars is, I think, one of vertical clearance when the roof is opened. In this respect, these bars are fine. BUT, they are a bit tight on the sides, so I would advise that the first fitting is done with the roof already open. Mine are so close to the glass that I shall be filing a bit of the upright away before I use them "in anger".

Anyway, hope this helps.

Question Renault Scenic 2 - Roof Bars With Panoramic Roof

I need to find some roof bars for my 2005 Grand Scenic in order that I can get a cycle carrier on the top of the car. Trouble is, I have a panoramic sunroof and all websites are telling me I can't have roof bars because I have a sunroof . I'm confused !! I have fixing points for roof bars but can't find any that allow you to have a sunroof ?!! Or is this just a safety measure that I can ignore (at my peril ) ?

Any help/advice gratefully appreciated.
