    Posted: 06áJaná2012 at 10:46am
Hello everyone.

I am curious about the roof rails of the qashqai.
There are two types of rails though different models available on the market.
There is the original factory fitted rail and the aftermarket ones.
Can anyone please confirm if the original rails are just stuck on the roof or is it screwed on...

There is two types of aftermarket ones - The cosmetic ones that are stuck and the load bearing ones that are screwed on roof.

My aim is to have my qashqai fitted with decorative rails to give the car a little bit more height and character - I do not really need the roof rails with bars on to carry loads.

However the load bearing ones seem to be more properly fixed with screwed on bolts etc.

My concern is - Are the cosmetic ones good enough to withstand wind load? Are they not gonna come off with time? Hence my first question about the factory fitted roof rails.

Comments welcome.

Cheers

and the originals are bolted on load bearing ones..

but so far have heard no complaints about the cosmetic ones coming off... so if you dont need them to be load bearing, might be a great alternative(and cheaper)

Alright. Craigfishin Can you send/ upload photos of the aftermarket rails fitted on the qashqai.

Lots of sellers online advertise the rails and show the original rails intead of the aftermarket ones.
This creates some confusions.

Please send some photographs of the rails you have on sale.
I  would need rails that are entirely silver/ chrome.

Thanks

How different are they in looks from the orginal nissan rails?

Can you please provide the dimensions width, length and height of the rails when fitted.

Thanks Craigfishin.

The rails look pretty much the same.Smile
However, the aftermarket rail seems shorter than the original nissan rail.
Notice the original rail starts closer to the windscreen as opposed to the aftermarket which is set further back. Compare the 2 photographs 

Any idea on the size of the aftermarket rails?

A little bit less rounded by the looks but I think you'd need to be looking for differences to see them?

I also found this seller

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/NISSAN-QASHQAI-Roof-Rails-Pair-Dachrelig-Dakrails-/300432457737?pt=UK_CarsParts_Vehicles_CarParts_SM&hash=item45f32b8009

Here the rails are more chunky and load bearing.

Aesthetically, which one looks better?

load bearing ones require the roof to be drilled in several places and the headlining removed for fitting

size wise the aftermarket ones are just a bit shorter as you say but other than that the dimmensions are pretty much the same

those ones on ebay dont look like load bearing to me.. shouldnt they have a centre footing for load bearing to stop them flexing?

The ebay one requires headlining to be removed and roof drilled to be fixed. The section looks stronger and bulkier than the decorative ones. I dont think it needs centre footing for additional support

[QUOTE=Craigfishin]these are my sisters ones 


i bought these of cf for my visia(see gallery)two years ago,only yesterday i p/ex my car and the dealer agreed that i could leave them on so i did not have the problem of cleaning the bodywork after removing them.just through curiosity i have just had a pull on them and believe me they are well secure.the only way i would get them off is by the fergie treatment(hairdryer)LOL.as well as being secure this as saved me some time by leaving them on.so definatley no problems with wind or motorways.
