Scenic Roof rack anchor point tip
Recently when fitting my roof rack to my MK2 04 Scenic one of the bolts for fitting the rack snapped off in the hole for the bolt, tried drilling it out but was no good, the point where the bolt goes into is actually a bolt it's self and can be changed which I had to buy from Renault, I noticed that the little plastic plug that sits in the bolt hole is not a tight fit and lets water in so make the thread rusty which is what happen in my case.
After fitting new parts from Renault even though they come with the little plastic plug I thought that to keep water out would be a good idea to fit over the bolt hole four size M6 Plastic dome protection caps for nuts. They fit just nice and will keep the water out.
The 1st picture is the bolt hole under the roof trim flap
2nd picture is the cap to go over the bolt hole
