    Default Cargo Barrier for 505 Wagon?

    I'd like to get a cargo barrier fitted to my 505 wagon.
    Can anyone recommend somewhere in Melbourne to get this done?

    There seems to be a metal bar under the headlining with 3 plastic plugs
    blocking off holes. It looks like something was intended to bolt in here.
    Did Peugeot make a barrier for the 505 wagon that was designed to attach
    at these points?

    I put one in my wagon. It is a modified commodore barrier. Bolts onto the two out side roof mounts and bolts to the floor whre the rear seat used to be.

    Which model Commodore and what did you have to do to get it to fit?

    I'm not too sure about the 505 but can give some info from a 406 as I was interested to get a cargo barrier for my 406 wagon. Peugeot do make them in Europe for the 406, but didnt import them into Australia. I'm not sure about the exact reasons - possibly not enough sales volume and also heard something about the fact that the barrier regulations were being changed and they didnt want to get stuck with having to recall the ones they'd fitted - so they didnt let anyone get one in the first place!

    Anyway Peugeot Australia were quite helpful and even sent me the parts manual pictures which showed diagrams of all the fitting points. There were 2 locations - so you could move it from just behind the front seats or behind the middle row of seats. However the price was going to be over $700 to import and take ages so I havent pursued it (yet). All the mounting points seem to be there in my 406 under the roof lining so I wouldnt be surprised that if they made them for the 505 that your car would have the body fittings already there. The 406 ones were on the curved sides - just above the windows. I'm not sure whether the metal bar you refer to is the same - if its in the centre of the roof its more likely to be child seat anchors.

    So it may be worth while dropping in to a dealer at a not so busy time and asking them to look it up on the computer.

    Local car barriers can be modified and can be a bit cheaper but the ones I looked at could only be mounted in one place behind the middle seats. Roof rack places seem to do this work routinely so shop around and see what they offer if you cant or dont want to get one through Peugeot.

    Cheers,

    The one I got was from a similar age commodore to the 505. The barrier was too wide where it flared out to go over the rear wheel arch. I cut that bit off and rearanged the mounts to suit my car. Gave it a coat of paint and it looks just like a bought one.
