Hi,

I ordered some Thule aero roof bars for my 166 from Halfords, had to order the fitting kit separately as it was not in stock. Anyway, today I took it all to Halfords for a 12pm fitting. I returned an hour later to be told that they do not fit properly and that there is nothing else available. So I am barless. They checked the fitting kit code and footprint kit code but everything seems fine. I asked if I went to any Halfords then would I experience the same problem? I was told yes. Any ideas anybody? Cheers.

i suspect they are talking nonsense....the fittings for the 166 do seem a wee bit odd as they sit at an angle but they fit fine (well they do on mine!).

Best to take them away and fit them youself....

They said that the rubber bits were not sitting on the roof properly, but the metal clamps were in position OK. I should have had a look myself.
Thanks.
