Roof bars - Missing Keys Fix

Just a quick note to anyone with lost keys for the factory supplied roof bars.

When we bought the car the roof bars were mounted together at the rear of out Grand Scenic. There was no key however and after contacting the independent we bought from, and the previous owner a key could not be found.

Our local Renault dealer could only suggest forcing the lock and replacing the barrels at 85 or new bars at about 130. Renault UK just referred us back to the dealer - all next to useless!!!

I contacted our local locksmith who picked the locks removed the barrels and cut two replacement keys all within an hour - for the princely sum of 15.

Hope this is useful to anyone in the same position.
