Re: options for a s70 roof rack (kentis19)

The Volvo original rack is actually made by Thule. I use it all the time with no problem. Just bought a surfboard kit for it <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">

Bars and the triangle shaped things are attached as one peice . <p>Theres two bars that go across the car and those tirangle things are what hold the bars to the car <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>If you open your doors any one of the foor and look at the top of the door frame there will be a littel whole where the roof rack clips into <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>Go to your dealer and they should have some sitting out for you to see <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0">

If you open each door there will be a little hole at the top of the door frame that a little rubber-coated peg lines up into on each foot. I own a set of these racks myself and use them for ski & bike racks.
