Default 140 estate roof rack

Hi
Several years ago we purchased a wood slag roof rack for our amazon estate. Eventually got it out of the box and it does not fit, too long and too wide. Does anyone have one fitted to their estate who could please measure it for me as I would hate to pass it one to someone then find out that it does not fit their car either 😞

I've heard it's not difficult to modify a 145 rack to fit an Amazon. As far as I know, it's a case of cutting the rear section slightly narrower and re-fitting it with the holes and slots drilled differently.

I'd recommend looking into the possibility of getting it side-by-side with an Amazon one and checking out the differences.

Have looked at that would have to make the cross supports shorter and the length is wrong as the bits that fit in the gutter are in the wrong place to be able to open the doors
