Does any one out there have a roof box fitted to their Carens? The U bolts on my roof box are just too small to wrap around the large roof rails on the car.

Can any one advise me where to find larger ones?

I went to Halfords and got myself a new fixing kit for £19.99 . Now I have to face the problem trying to get the spacing of the roof bars extended, that rubber inside the rails is in the way. Any idea on how to get that out / cut it / or deal with that? I think the plastic back covers come off and that is the way of getting out the back rubber bits, but what happens after that? any idea?


BTW< Hi everybody on here, this is my first ppost

Don't take the back rubbers out, its the front that needs cutting then holes drilling, deal.er should be able to do it for you and claim under warranty.

Many thanks murpgwiz, I managed to fix my roof box, just re-drilled a few holes within the roof boz and that was it. I guess beause mine is an older model Halford box I didn't have too much of a problem, thanks again for you help
