Re: Clio - mk2 - Fitting Roof bars

Have had a look at some sites that sell roof bars and
looking at the fittings and the odd pic of them fitted
I would say there are fixings under there and on one
it showed the plastic cover slightly trimmed back to allow
them to be fitted back once the bar feet were in place.
If you look closely you can see a rubber seal under the
plastic I am going to wait till it gets a bit warmer give
it a squirt of WD and see if I can move it, one thing I
read suggested that the plastic strips sort of hinged up
from the inside edge.

Who would design a vehicle that falls over when you stop?

If you find a fix for your problem please let us know it will help others.
