Wave 156 Saloon Roof Bars

Hi All,
I have a 156 Saloon from 2000. Can anyone recommend roof bars please?
Original aero type ones are very rare on ebay these days.

Thanks.

I'd rather have my bike on the roof than on the tow bar. Simple as that really
Paid around 30 for a set of OE bars for mine, last year.

I've had a set of these that I used on my 156 saloon and now on my 156 Sportswagon, it took me ages to find some, I suggest that you keep trying ebay.

I've got a set on ebay. Do you know what size bolts are needed to fit them to a saloon?
Thanks.

If they are Alfa roof bars then they slot into the existing holes on the side of the roof just above the doors, pull the rubber seals down a bit and you'll find them.

Thanks - Do I need to get a particular size bolt to fit them on? The ones I'm getting from ebay are alfa aero roof bars but I think without the right bolts.

I was intending to use them in the hole beside the Allen bolt. Why? Am I going dreadfully wrong?

These knobs are hiding beneath your door seal. You don't need additional bolts.

Thanks - My car has an additional hole beside the allen headed in-situ bolt. I was wondering if something is meant to go into that.

Another question - do you have to remove that allen headed bolt or do the bars fit onto it?

Thanks again.

The bolts just has to be loosened, then mount the bars and tighten up.
