[WTB] Roof rack or bars wanted.
#1
Hi guys I am looking for a roof rack or a set of roof bars for my 2002 Berling Multispace, trouble is I live in Plymouth Devon so am miles away from anyone lol, however saying that I don't mind driving but not too the other end of the country. I am moving house soon and can fit most things inside the  bingo but having a roof rack would be handy..... 

Can anyone help?  

Cheers 
Jim

Unfortunately I can't offer a rack or bars, just my experience. I have an 03 Forte and over the years have bought 2 sets of Citroen roof bars. They attach to the metal hoops welded to the roof gutter. The allen bolt adjusters need to be constantly tightened, initially with no load, then with the load on (due to their "convex" shape they flatten with a load) then constantly thereafter. I once lost the complete rack and 3 bikes at 70mph in darkest Dorset, which is why I ended up buying the second set just to get the bikes home. If left on the car unloaded they loosen on their own, which is how I lost the rear bar a few weeks later. I have since had the "proper" Citroen van rack with air foil on the front for 30,000 miles with no problems at all. It's worth going the extra mile(s) for in my opinion.

Does yours have modular roof, or the side roof rails? If side rails I have a couple of cross bars no longer needed but they need the roof rails, and I'm in Devon.

Glad I wasn't behind you when you lost your rack and 3 bikes,!!
