    Default Fitted new roof rack... does this look right?

    Hi people, I have been forced into buying a roof rack for carrying the "His and Hers" of the 2 wheeled type...

    Just curious thou, the bike looks a little far forward on the rack... Any one with experience know if this is fine?

    it does look a little forward - but if its mounted correctly then it could just be the roofline that makes it look "peculiar" - it doenst look like it sits any further forward than a standard roofbox so should be ok Nick

    When someone said you should try the pedal trick to read out fault codes, I don't think this is what they meant.

    Looks fine to me mate, although it may be worth seeing if you can push the plates the wheels sit on back slightly to move the bike back. Also, the clamp holding onto the frame should be sitting a bit higher.

    It may just be the size of the wheels that make it look a bit odd, but i haven't fitted one of these since i left Halfords lol

    Just remember that when you come to fit the other carrier the bike should be facing the opposite way to the one already on the car

    Thing is the arm doesnt reach any further up the frame, so I had to attach it at that point... At least I think it didnt LOL.
