    Default Roof bars fitting question 02-08

    Is the built in fitting for roof bars the same for the Hatchback as the Estate 02 - 08 Vectra ? Flip up a little cover and the bars feet clip in and tighten down.
    Is it the same for Hatch and Estate ??

    I think the fittings for the hatchback and estate (NO RAILS) are the same for 2002 - 2008 Vectras. Anyway the Thule fit guide quotes the same foot adaptors (kit 3006).

    (The estate with optional roof rails is completely different )

    I'm looking a getting a box on the cheap but my estate doesn't have the roof rails, so I need to buy/borrow the rack that clips into the roof.

    If you have the fixpoints under little flaps on the roof, you will need roof cross bars with fixing kit 3006 (Thule). Have a look at the Thule web site - they do fitting guides. (my link didn'd come out properly above - you'll have to type it in).
    Don't know about any other makes.
    I think you need cross bars to mount the box onto, even with roof rails you need some sort of cross bars.

    i have looked on ebay before but i am never convinced they are the right ones.

    some people seem to confuse roof rails and roof bars and stuff.

    dont want to spend say £80 then when they arrive find they could never fit

    if you have roof flaps, you need roof BARS to fit into the locations underneath the flaps.
