Re: Bolt Size for Scenic 2 Roof Bars?

Hi all,

Sorry not been on to reply.

I have used M6 x 20mm hex bolts (setscrews). I think 25mm ones would also fit, but might be pushing it.

I had some problems with a couple of the holes being a bit rusted up. Some people on other threads suggested a thread cutter, but I found that I got the bolts in with some WD40 and a bit of persistence, by working the bolt in and out several million times! It helps to use an electric drill but don't have the torque setting too high.

Hope this helps.
