Check these posts ive typically answered this question a million times. httpwww.fiatforum.combravo-brava...g-sunroof.html httpwww.fiatforum.combravo-brava...pets-help.html
ok bringing this back up as I need answers Now I thought the tipotemprapunto roof bars would fit onto the bravao. Even the pictures on Brio show the same one. So moved the rubber stip out the way and there doesnt appear to be any connecting points anywhere. How on earth is one going to fit then
have you got a larger picture of that Id like to see how they are attached to the roof of your brava. For the moment im not in a hurry to get them sorted but I hope there is a way to use what I have rather then get a new set. Oh and nice to have another fifer on the forum

When the door is closed the rubber door seal then covers this
Yes thule do the best one in my opinion i own quite a few sets and use them with the different foot packs on all my cars even with a huge roofbox at autobahn speeds theres been no problem. Or bikes or cannoes or ladders or kayaks. It attaches by little feet which grab hold off the roof under the doors there molded to the car so you then can shut the door etc etc dont get a generic one theyre likely not to be as secure and could damage your door.
Do you know what the attachment pack is for use with a brava
I saw a regular brava today with a roof spoiler it looks awesome... Gotta find me one fast P
Hi circolo AFAIK a universal one wont fit unless they offer a special clamp kit for Bravo. Even a bravaMarea roof rack wont fit actually due to lack of rear door. The rear clamps need to be shorter as they hold on to the window. Thule surely has a clamp kit for Bravo Automaxi has the whole rack set same as La Prealpina (three differend models). Just look around.
Okay thanks for the info. Will keep looking. Unless I can find a roof rack from fiat directly
Thule do a great system means you can keep bits when you change the car etc i have one for my Bravo brava Punto and the Volvo all i really need is different feet for them all (Bravoa are from the same kit) but all other parts the same. I have a 320L roof box as well which finishes it off nicely. I got it all off ebay as new it can be got new for alot less than halfords etc prices. The roofbox company

Thanks Rosso 187. hi best place to get them from is from a MK1(pre 99) BRAVO. for some reason they always seem to be in better condition than the newer ones

Pre 1999 cars go the full length of the roof post 1999 are shorter for some unknown reason Needless to say get a set from an early car in a scrapyard

I tried to do the same thing but with no success since I realised that the iron filaments inside the rubber were rusting and rust marks were appearing on the fittinf edege of the bodywork. So I bought new ones. The problem is that they fit awful especially where the roof rack brackets are. I aligned the as best as I could but they dont fit tight enough in one place. could this be cos of the way they were in the packaging or should I do something to solve this problem
It alldepends on the roof strips you get ive seen them curve down at the end like they should and ive seen others that fall short. The best way to fit it is to gently tap it into position with say a bolt and work your way down till its all in
pm headed your way reference roof mouldings
There is no step by step guide and you will need to do a heck of hard work to remove the sunroof and seal it properly yourself. The easiest temporary solution i can offer is to smear vaseline or similar around the sunroof seal when closed. (Obviously dont use your roof afterwards and reapply when you wash the car). However its a common problem and its the sunroof frame leaking so changing sunroof seals wont do the job. Crap design on fiats part sadly.
Am not sure about the drainage - where should I be looking (Told you I was an idiot) On the drivers side there is a grey strip down full length of the channel along the edge of the roof but there is nothing on the other side at all - should there be a strip on this side too Have looked in the manual but cant seem to find any reference to this at all. Arrrgggghhhh

Next question - how do I get the roof lining off (Ps Bec as in Rebecca as in female - but can put pic of husbands hairy bum on if wanted
both my bravos did this usually when braking and i fixed it on both cars. trust me its the same old sunroof leak remove the roof lining and apply a good amount of silicone all around the sunroof chassis. also check the 4 drain pipes are clear (i bet they are) and seal the aerial base with silicone.
how big a job is removing the roof linin i read bout the aerial mount as a possible fault in BOO i dont want the car lookin bodged wen i try and put it back 2gether rich
very easy 10 minute job- remove the sun visors remove the rubber trim from around the doorways remove the roof handles remove the trim from around the sunroof lower the roof lining it goes back together just as easily and you cant tell it was ever removed.
Thanks jug.. all the bravos in the scrappys i visited had damaged roof linings so was just wonderin. Ill have to keep hunting.. Owen.
ive beaten the sunroof leak more than once now it took a few attmepts but i got there in the end. you need to apply silicone around the sunroof chassis. to do that you need to drop the roof lining. its not difficult just a bit of a pain.
There are two screws to remove then it comes away from the roof so you can get in and have a look. Fuses are at your right knee as you sit in the drivers seat
