Re: Cycle Carrier for Grand Scenic (60 Plate)
When I run the high level carrier in any of my cars, I have the two top straps attached to to a roof bar rather than the tailgate. To my mind this a much more secure location.....
I also took the carrier apart and put it back together in a confiuration that seems to suit the Scenics a little better.
Have a read through this thread
It's for a Scenic II but some of it will apply, and you will see how I modified the carrier.
Hope it helps
