How did you get the electrics into the car?

Depends what you want to do, these side bars and lights on the photo aren't genuine Renault parts.

Let me know what you want to do and I'll try and help

I borrowed a Kadjar from the dealer while mine was in for some paintwork, and theirs had the light up bars and the light up sill plate. Looked really good so am mulling it over

Ok
The genuine sill plates are lithium battery powered, cost around about £140. I had some made for around £50 if you have a look in the technical section there is a video and wiring tips.

The genuine side bars are about £420, fitting instructions come with them to drop the wiring out of the car, if you see the sill post it's based on the genuine Renault diagrams.

My side bars are for a Qashqai, the brackets are different but a bit of adaptation I made them fit to the holes that are in the Kadjar sills. Paid £155 for them.

I used triple low profile led light, 2 on each side, which are mounted on the sidebar fixing bracket.

If you order them with the vehicle the genuine items pack is £400 fitted

If you get them as accessories it costs nearly £200 more plus fitting I think there's something wrong there somewhere!

I have the Renault light pack .... hubby paid so cost didn't matter .

they are great in the dark winter months ... now arriving ... but I have not seen ' the light ' all summer .... except in a multi story car park and most of those now have bright lights ... I think the steel bar accompanying the light pack adds to the car 🚗 though ... but am worried it will rust .

Without going into to much detail how do you get the wiring for the side bar lights into the car?

Basically out if the front end of the bar up into the inner wheel arch is the official way.

I did it slightly different, there is a sticker in the inner silk and a few grommets under the sill, utiliser one of these, remover the sticker cover and replace with a cable grommet, fish the cable through

The sidebars are stainless steel, for added protection you can always give the a spray of silicon, stainless steel won't rust like steel bars, but still need looking after
