    I have roofbars (genuine Pug) for 406 saloon, but no screws. Dealer says £16
    for 4 screws please and don't use any you get at a hardware store, ours are
    special! Anyone out there know whether screws can be used that cost less
    than £4.00 each?

    Suggest you buy one, then go down to your local DIY or motor factor and
    compare prices.....

    If you work in industry, if you have access to a toolmakers, suggest you
    give them a call as all their fasteners will be very high grade. If you
    don't want them to rust, buy stainless steel ones from a yacht chandler.

    Thanks, but I believe they only sell in sets of 8!

    I faced similar pricing for some lock on bolts on the diesel fuel filter
    housing.(Well about £4 for four)

    I can't believe that Peugeot would go for anything exotic in a metric size
    but check with the dealer on why "they are special"
    If he just says that they are superior quality etc then that's just
    Get a selection of bolts from an ironmonger (m4,m5,m6,m8) Try them for size
    (very gently)

    Unless you are going to have the roof bars on all the time then just
    purchase cheap bolts.A spot of grease will cure any tendency to
    rust.Increases MPG if you leave them on - up to 10%.

    If you do want to leave them on, a security fixing would be better -
    Screwfix have security metric bolts.If they require to be cut to size, put a
    nut on the bolt before you make the cut. That way it will deburr the bolt
    when you remove the nut.
