Thule bars – is this correct?
Just fitting my bars onto skoda estate that I had on a Renault a few years back.
Can’t quite remember if I used to have this gap on the inside or not once I’d tightened them up …..
Thule 755 so correct foot pack … Just the roof rails are a wedge shape on the inside so the inside clamp isn’t going to meet it flush …bars feel solid but I’ve got a roof box to go on so I want to be sure I’m not missing something!

Here’s another pic if it helps … You can see that the roof bars are not circular right round hence me having trouble getting the Inside clamp to come into the rail. At this point on the photo the bars are tight and won’t come in any further . I can’t alter the angle of the inside clamp any more than this either.Posted 4 years ago

Just checked. Mine are like that last photo. They’ve been fine. Rock solid with a loaded roof box last weekend over to the lakes
Thanks! Is that on an octavia?
I was starting to wonder if its meant to be like that since the 755 pack covers a lot of different roof rails.
I’ll fit them up tmrw and see how they go. Just got a new roof box so that needs to go on.Posted 4 years agoroofracksMember
On a Skoda Octavia with roof rails you can fit a Thule 755, 757 and 775 without any problems.
Sometimes due to the shape of the rails it might mislead you in thinking its not a good fit.
I must say that I have encountered a person that had this issue but on a different vehicle, we assured it was fine. He eventually just bought a 775.Posted 4 years ago
So if you feel more comfortable with a strapped version than I would say go for one.
