    Default Roof Bars ~ how to remove?

    Do you know if I can remove my factory fitted roof rails from my T reg Vectra and put them on my 2007 Vectra both are estate cars.

    If they are the same do you know how to remove them? I have no idea where to start, there are no screws and no movement in the bars so you can't push them in a any direction.

    Thanks

    The roof rails aren't compatible between the two. However it is possible to retro fit roof rails on to the estate, basically you have to drop the headlining onto the headrests, undo and drop the curtain airbags, remove the exisiting roof rail trim, drill out a couple of pop rivets each side then bolt on the new rails and trim down the windscreen trim to fit. Took me about 4 hours taking it steady. The rails crop up every so often on Ebay or they are roughly £100 a side from the dealer

    Thumbs up Thanks

    Thanks tramman

    I think i'll leave it then, sounds like a very hard job, and pointless as they don't fix the newer car.

    Thanks for the reply, I was looking for that info all over the net.

    Cheers
