The box will fit but it will curve the bottom, which may give problems closing/locking ..... the Renault adapters are a much cheaper option than feet and bars (approx £30) ... but they require the powergrip holders to be removed (they just pull out and push to refit) so the adapters can be mounted ..... same with all other Thule boxes that dont have "U" clamps.

Hope it helps

PS remember the load limit on the Espace is 80Kg, including the box(25kg?) ... The Thule Aero bars are 100kg, but Renault wont tell you the actual roof loading only the OEM bars .... pity) ... do a search on Espace roof bars plenty of info and horror stories.

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