    Default Roof Box on Estate

    Got a elgance 03 estate using the quick fit roof bars, just bought a thule atlantis 900 roof box that is 2.2 meters long.

    The roof bars are so close to the front of the vehicle anybody got any suggestions how i could mount the box further back??

    If it's the same as my Thule then you can drill new holes in the botton of the roof box so it mounts further back on the car?

    Failing that, you can buy an extra pair of bars that clamp from front to back on your existing roof bars so that you can slide the roof box back.

    Try the Halfords in store catalogue for the Thule parts (basically a pair of long bars & 4 bar to bar clamps) or try a towing or caravan shop.
