Assembling and fitting Cruz roof bars is a quick and easy process.
The roof bars are supplied with 2 topside rubber strips, 1 underside rubber strip, 4 plastic lockable foot covers, 1 plastic key, 4 end caps, 1 torque wrench and a set of instructions.
Don’t be alarmed if the bars are curved.
The car specific fitting kit is usually supplied with 4 coated metal clamps, 4 rubber pads, bolts, washers, nuts, identification stickers, a paper ruler and instructions.
Firstly you need to attach the fitting kit to the roof bars.
Each clamp is mould to the shape of your vehicle and will each have a number stamped on it to identify front, rear, left and right. You will need to refer to the fitting kit instructions for which clamp goes where.
Cruz use generic images within there instructions so don’t worry if your car doesn’t look the same.
The front of the bar is the rounder thicker side.
Attach the clamp to the correct foot using 2 bolts, 2 washers and 2 nylock nuts.
Make sure that the clamp is fitted to the inside of each foot.
Attach the correct rubber pad, making sure to push fully into the plate.
Now make sure that the two underside bolts are tight.
Attach the corresponding sticker.
Loosen the main tensioning bolt that is located inside the roof bar. This will allow for an easier fitting to your vehicle.
Open both front doors and place the front bar onto the roof, pushing each foot as close to the roof as you can. Make sure this part of the roof is clean.
You must check that there is an equal distance each side of the bar.
The position of the front bar is measured from the edge of the front door to the middle of the roof bar foot. This will vary for each vehicle so check the instructions for the positioning on your car.
Use the paper ruler to position the bar on both sides of the vehicle.
Once in position, with one hand keep gentle pressure on each clamp as you use the torque wrench provided to take up the slack and tighten each foot evenly both sides to 5 neuton metres, which is about hand tight.
You will notice that as the bar tightens it also straightens.
Once tight insert both end caps and fit each foot cover securing in place with the plastic key.
Now place the rear bar onto the vehicles roof.
The measurement for the rear bar is from the edge of the front door to the centre of the roof bar foot, which again will vary with each vehicle so you must refer to the instructions.
The fitting process is then exactly the same as the front bar.
Again, as the bar is tightened it will also straighten.
Insert the end caps and attach the plastic foot covers.
Now fit the T-track rubber strip by pushing in from above. This can be cut to fit around all T-track accessories if you want to.
The final step is to fit the underside rubber strip, which needs to be cut to fit.
As an optional extra you can purchase a set of locks and keys.
Fitting these is very simple.
Remove the foot cover using the plastic key provided and turn it over.
Squeeze the lock together and push the plastic barrel out of the cover.
Turn the cover over and with the key in the lock, push the lock barrel all the way into the cover.
The barrel will locate itself and you can then remove the key.
Same process for SX and ST steel bars
