Side bars, rear bars and front corner bars fitting.

Post by Coriloso » Mon Jul 02, 2018 11:41 am

Hi I've recently bough a qq and picked up some used side, rear and front corner bars.

The sides and rears I have worked out with regards to fitting, but the front corner bars are a bit of a mind field.

Has anyone else got a set of these? If so, how have you attached them as none of the bumper fittings appear to line up with the fittings on the corner bars. :?

Any help greatly received. (I have googled and looked at videos, but the genuine front corner bars do not appear to be a very common thing!)

Thanks in advance

Rich

Depending on which country you are located the corner ones may well be illegal.

Rich, it might be of help if you supplied the Manufacturers name or type or supplied some photos of the parts, then perhaps somebody could help. Not being funny but hopefully the parts are for a QQ J10 and not a J11 as there is most likely a difference - Dave :)

Hi and thank your for the responses so far. I live in England so I’m not sure if they’re banned or not??

I will get some pics up when the kids are in bed!

Take a look at the Regulations and an old post for your interest, it might help you - Dave :)

So do you think the corner bars would be classed as bull bars? 😞

In order to be approved for use in the U.K. they need to be laser etched as European Compliant and this involves being indelibly etched with the prefix E1 xxx xxx. If not they are illegal to use and illegal to sell.

Don't forget to check out whether your insurers will accept them being fitted at all and if so how much they'll bump the premium up.

The date - 12/06> - means they're for a pre-facelift car doesn't it?

Yours is post-facelift according to your info panel

Checking out pictures of the fronts of Qashqais on the internet the bumpers are different?
