VW Roof Bars and Roof Box

Post by crackerdooby » Tue Jul 13, 2021 9:23 am

Hi All,

I have a T-Roc Black edition and just purchased the Genuine VW Roof Bars and 340L Roof Box - Roof Box: 000071200 & Bars: 2GA071151A

As these were "Genuine" VW items I thought they would easily fit the T-Roc! But when opening the boot it hits the roof box. The only way I have got this to fit as to not hit the boot is to push the roof box brackets as far forward as they will go and to fit the bars very close to the front of the rails. Few pictures attached. Although it does feel very secure its not the recommended distances on the roof rails (think something like 16” from front).

Anyone else had this issue or have the same setup?


Thanks

Someone else reported this problem when fitting bikes on the roof, and they finished having to turn the bikes round back-to-front.
