Re: 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.
We have the same situation but perhaps even more information as we apparently have the key codes for our roof bar locks. Renault can not supply us a key and the locksmiths we have tried do not have the blanks (Renault can't supply these either). Noone to date has been able to pick the locks either. Do you by any chance have the numer of your locksmith who might be able to supply us the blanks so we can try and get these cut. All most frustrating! Thank you if you read this!
