How do I fit Thule roof bars?

Hi, I have just bought Thule roof bars (Aero bar 861), foot set 753, and fitting kit 3078, for my Grand Scenic II, 2005 (from a web-shop).
However, it appears I am not very good at following the accompanying fitting instructions, because the result looks like this picture - where there is a large gap between the foot and the roof.
At first I thought there must be something missing from the kits I bought (I used the web-shop's fitting guide to determine what parts to buy) - but the web-shop assures me I have all the parts, I've just screwed them on wrongly.
So does anyone know how to pull the feet down so they fit snugly against the roof?
