Peugeot 2008: Practical information / Roof bars

Peugeot 2008. Roof bars As a safety measure and to avoid damaging the roof, it is essential to use the transverse bars approved for the vehicle.

Observe the instructions on fitting and use contained in the guide supplied with the roof bars.

Peugeot 2008. Roof bars Maximum load distributed over the roof bars, for a loading height not exceeding 40 cm: 70  kg.

As this value may change, please verify the maximum load quoted in the guide supplied with the roof bars.

If the height exceeds 40 cm, adapt the speed of the vehicle to the profile of the road to avoid damaging the roof bars and the fixings on the vehicle.

Be sure to refer to national legislation in order to comply with the regulations for transporting objects that are longer than the vehicle.

Peugeot 2008. Roof bars Recommendations

Distribute the load uniformly, taking care to avoid overloading one of the sides.

Arrange the heaviest part of the load as close as possible to the roof.

Secure the load securely.

Drive gently: the vehicle will be more susceptible to the effects of side winds and its stability may be affected.

Regularly check the security and tight fastening of the roof bars, at least before each trip.

Remove the roof bars once they are no longer needed.

Check that the load does not pass below the roof bars so that it does not impede the movements of the sunroof - risk of major damage!
