Question V40 Cross Country - Bike rack

Hi all,

We have a 13 plate V40 Cross country with the factory fit bars running front to back. We are now interested in fitting a bike rack capable of carrying two bikes, but are not sure which official or 3rd party racks would work and which addtional pieces we need to buy.

Would https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Genuine-V...8/283801761463 two of these be everything we need as we weren't sure if it included the bits that went across the car and the brackets to attach the bike mount to.

Sorry for the very newbie terminology, but we've never fitted any kind of rack before and it's difficult to ascertain from the descriptions.

Many thanks.

Looks like it is only the bike carrier and not the roof bars they are selling from the description and price
You could get genuine Volvo bars or Thule do kits to suit
