Espace III cycle rack fitting query

Can anyone help with a fixing query for a tailgate cycle rack for my Espace III (The Race - 02)?

I bought the proper Renault carrier off eBay & it arrived with lots of bits including some large rollers & "U" brackets to be fitted on the lower mounting, but which do I use? The instructions seem a bit ambiguous.

The "U" brackets seem the logical choice as they fit over the plastic strip beneath the number plate but it does move around a bit when opening the tailgate which would scuff the paintwork after a while. Also the rear wiper arm looks to be slightly fouled as it's mounted below the opening rear window on the bodywork.

Not sure about the rollers, would have thought that they might scratch the tailgate as well.

Has anyone fitted one of these & knows what to use?

Many thanks....
