    Default Estate roof rails

    Got my C estate now but its not got the roof rails, just the four points for the roof bars.

    Is it easy to remove the strips and retro-fit the roof rails? Are they fixed from the inside (ie does the roof lining have to be dropped to bolt them on?) or are they fixed from the outside?

    And, are they expensive? (anybody know the part numbers?)

    Hi
    yes you can fit the rails after factory
    iirc
    you will need to drop the roof lining
    cut your exciting roof trim, as the rails only cover the roof area, where the roof meets the front screen.
    will take quite a few hours to complete
    will try to find part numbers for you.

    hi
    to make sure you get the right rails your gonna need your chassis number
    there are 3 differant rails.
    cost wise your looking at £450 for the rails then labour charge.....know a few vx tech. that will charge around £100 cash in hand!
