ignore the post asking about if anyone has one...

i can get a universal one, but i think i might have a problem..

my car has the "gutters" running down each side of the car roof, but NO rails (for roof BARS to clamp too)

can you can rails and bars together or can you get a roof rack that clamps straight to roof of the car so i dont need the rails (if you get me)

Im not a massive fan of Halfords, but they do sell a good range of universal fitments and bars to fit your specific car.

Thats where I got ours from. You buy the blocks to fit your rails/slots etc, then buy a couple of cross bars.
Think it cost around 50 all in.

It looks like it might be a bit pricey me old mucka.

Halfords do the roof bars and feet for about 60 or so but then its another 50 for the tray.

I think you're best to try and find somewhere local like a hardware place or warehouse shop kinda thing. You know the sort....lots of chinese imports etc. I got one years ago for my sierra from a similar kinda place.

Good luck [:H]
