Roof bars with a sunroof?

Post by Moog »

Hi,

I'm looking for some roof bars for my Xsara Picasso 2001. It has the large sliding sunroof that raises the roof height a little.

Does anyone know if they made bars for this? Ideally using the fixpoints on the roof.

My stepson has taken up surfing so I need to get roof bars for trips away. Trying not to pay silly money in case it's a passing fad.

Thanks!

Citroen do a set of roof bars for Picassos with Vinyl sunroof, but the sunroof must not be operated whilst these are fitted: This is the official part for your vehicle from your VIN. There are other accessories like roof boxes and bike mounts, but these are the only bars listed for your vehicle. Relatives had this exact one fitted to their Picasso with electric sun roof.

"For vehicles having a vinyl sun roof, it is recommended to use the bars only with the roof closed."
  • Set of two transverse roof bars in anti-corrosion treated steel covered with a black PVC sheath
  • Secured on the anchoring points on the roof.
  • Maximum load : 75kg.

They fit directly into the vehicles roof bar slots and are then just locked into place and tightened up as shown.
