Re: Roof bar keys


Ledbye,

Go to the Logan Rd, Wooloongabba Nissan service centre and see the parts guy (Chris I think) and he will look for you.

Keema at Mt Gravatt have only just taken over looking after Nissan and do not know much about them.

Re: Roof bar keys


Hi guys, I know that this is an old post, but hopefully someone still checks it!

I was wondering if there was a cost for the small key that locks the screw cover into place?

We've just bought a 2004 X-Trail and the roof racks were provided but not installed, and there is no sign of the small key that goes with them (the allen key type thing was provided at least!)

Re: Roof bar keys


Brett,
        I just went through the same process, and found that different dealers have different levels of knowledge. The first dealer here in Ipswich had no idea, and in the end suggested a locksmith. I got a quote for about $30 and thought this was a bit steep. I then rang another dealer in Brisbane and they were that helpful it wasn't funny. They knew all about how to get these keys, and how long it took. It cost me $17.50, and took a week as they had to come from Melbourne. All I had to give them was the number on the lock, and when I got them they worked perfectly. If they seem a bit tight at first, just spray some WD40 into the lock and that will free things up. Sorry for war and peace, but I just wanted to illustrate how much difference there can be from one dealer to another.

The dealer who got me the keys was Highway Nissan at Springwood, near Brisbane.


Stan.

Re: Roof bar keys


Thanks Stan for your help - the more info the better in my book mate!

I understand the points you make in regards to different dealers, and must say that I have had some fantastic help from Symes Motors here in Bendigo, Vic.
Whilst they had said that we would probably have to buy a new key that they were looking in to for us, they were also trying to contact the previous owner of our car to see if she had the key. After a few days they contacted us to come and sign a form that we had missed, once we did that they presented us with a set of brand new roof rack locking flaps and keys, free of charge! Awesome service!

Brett

Re: Roof bar keys


Something that may help:

"r17" will refer to the size oif the head, and from what you describe it sounds like either a hex driver or a torx driver, although trox sizes are usualy preceeded by a T, eg "t16" (suitable for mobile phone screws)

If you have a look in your nearest hardware store you should find either a set of allan keys with this size or a screw driver with a r17 (hex) head.

as for the keys, I agree with previous posts, and would second that you go to a locksmith with the lock number, and I am led to beleive that this is a common key profile and a lock barrel with only 3 pins. Making it a cheap fix.

failing that, learn how to lockpick from youtube lol...

Re: Roof bar keys


The "genuine" roof bars on the T30 were sourced from Rola and the T31 from Thule. The Allen Key you need is a security Allen key and you usually get the appropriate bit in many of the multi bit kits from places like Jaycar (that's where mine came from) or Bunnings. The Rola screws are substantially smaller than the Rhino Rack ones so a Rhino Key won't fit.

Re:


Hi,

Sorry to dig up such an old thread but just wondering if anyone had any luck chasing down keys for the Nissan T30 roof racks? I just bought an X-Trail and would like to remove them but the original owner doesn't know where they are.

Thanks.

Re:


Is there a number on the lock cylinder, if so a locksmith can help you out.
If not, try to pick the lock or see if someone else's key in your area fits the racks.
Try every key you have, you never know.

Yes it says R20 so I guess I can just call Nissan to get a new key, hate to think what they'll charge for it.
