I think that there was a thread about being unable to use roof bars on a vehicle with a glass roof, but cant find it (mine being a Scenic II 1.6dci Oasis(special edition) with a fixed glass roof) Does anyone know if this a fact that you cant use roof bars with my scenic?

Sorry i have to say it did not see glass but on looking at the bars that go from side to side i do not see this being a problem as they attach to either side of the car and not on the flat roof part where the glass is i hope this helps Donald

update on roof bars with glass roof for scenic

Just been on the phone to RCS and they say that it is not recommended to use roof bars with a glass roof. "it would be seen as a modification"????? They would not send me written confirmation and said to email them......after a wait of some days for an answer I am not convinced they would reply anyhow.

I would like to know how it could be classed as a modification when the rails have the slots in them for fitting roof bars, and if I used Renault bars how can it be a modification.

It's strange how in the accessories booklet I have for the Scenic it shows the Roof Bars on a Scenic with Glass roof 3 times. Once for the roof bars and twice with the roofbars with a cycle carrier attatched!!
