    Default Vauxhall Roof Racks

    Got a facelift estate with no roofbars. Bought the VX kit that has the 'aero' bars that are shaped for streamlining ?

    Anyhow, the front bar is at an angle compared to the rear bar ( that is level ) . Surely this ain't right ? They also seem to be quite far forward.

    Also, there's a hell of a lot of whistling / wind noise that I don't get with my bog standard square bars on my 'B' vectra.

    Is there anything that I can buy to put in the 'hollows' that run the length of the bars ( and what are they there for ? )

    the runing hollow is for the fitment of vx roof boxes, bike racks etc, dont know if there is a trim that you could fit in there have to ask at dealers for that one, also on the hatch the bars are very close too and look odd as thought the front one is on the pi$$, but that is normal too...

    Should have bought the pair of bars I have for sale!
    (Sorry, I'll get me coat)

    I have been looking a Thule roof bars recently and their aero bars look like they come with a rubber strip that can be inserted into the T bar, perhaps to stop the whistling you mentioned.

    Hiya,

    I have the same bars on my Signum (and same air noise). I have made rubbers for the inset along the length of the bars, whisling is still happning, the noise is coming from holes in ther inside of the clamps (with bars in place looking at the clamp, key hole facing feel behind there there is a big rectangular hole). Drives me mad duck tape ftw Hope this helps let me know.
