    Roof Rack strip missing

    Hi,

    I have just bought an Astra Sri sports hatch but have noticed that the roof rack strips are missing.

    Is this going to cause any problems with water holding in the gaps on the roof??

    If so where can i get new ones from?

    Thanks

    hmmm thats an odd one mate,try a vaux dealer ship and maybe they could sort you out, other than that id try scrap yard. As for water holding not sure on that but get it replaced so no problems

    Find your nearest main breaker who handle insurance/write offs should pick some up easy enough. Should`nt be an issue regarding water as it will all be sealed, the trims are not a close fit anyway so water would find its way under anyway.
