Grand Scenic roof bar bolts - sizing problem!

We have a 2005 Grand Scenic, and I recently bought a set of second hand original dealer-fitted roof bars for them. The lad I bought them from has the same model (not sure of the exact year though).

The roof bars seem to fit okay, but the bolts are giving me problems. They only go in a small bit of the way, and then the Allen key gets really tight. Eventually I gave up and just took the bolt out again, and the thread on the bolt seemed to have been damaged slightly by my efforts. The bolts look like they're the right size, but it's as if the thread on them doesn't fit with the thread on the hexagonal fix point nuts.

Any ideas? All help would be greatly appreciated.
