    Default How to fit roof racks to a Renault 16

    Hi all.

    I have recently bought a Renault 16TL from John, a user here. It's great! I'd like to be able to easily carry a couple of bicycles on it though, and am wondering about how to fit a roof rack to it. It doesn't look like a normal rain gutter clamp kind of rack will fit.

    Can anyone help? Or even better, does anyone have one?

    Thanks

    Peter

    Peter,

    You are right - a normal roof rack it is not. It is a 16 after all!

    The roof rack for the 16 had rubber feet that sat on the roof and clamps to hold down the roof rack. Someone here may have a photo? Even better, someone may have one spare :-)

    I remember that it had a V shape that fitted over the silver roof rail and then an adjustable clamp that anchored above the door. I had a set but of course can't locate.

    I made a set out square tube with stubby uprights 45 degree angle with rubber to sit on silver rails and bolt up clamps to door opening - worked well.
