Re: roof bar trouble

I believe there is a difference between the 3 door and the 5 door but not between the mk2 and mk2b

which kit are you trying to fit? genuine fiat or after market?

Re: roof bar trouble

I've fitted a Thule kit but found it a major faff and returned the bits. £250 or the best part off, and that was with some heavy discount at work. Kit was decent but it looked naff and was a hassle to get on and off quickly.

Not sure how far you have got but the rubber rails fold back and there are slots to secure roof rack holdings in, if that helps.
