Thank you for the reply,I got this from someone who had a note he gave me the fixings for it ,after looking at the photos of the guard in situ it looked as if all you done was pop of the plastic covers and i wrongly assumed there would be something the turn screw would screw in to
sorry to resurrect an old thread, but did you have any joy rjk67? I'm in the same situation. The official guard does seem to attach to the roof - my guess is that it originally came with a rivnut style 'clip/bung' that replaced the headlining clip...<div style="line-height: 16.8px;">

Struggling to find a fitting guide online. I'll give Nissan a try later.
Me again! After not finding anything online, and looking at the fitting parts I had with the guard, I realised that the attachment for the headlining clip was a screw not a bolt. I guess originally it would have been supplied with a grommet/clip/plug that would have replaced the standard clip, and allowed a screw to tighten in the centre.
Decided to chance drilling a small hole in the existing clips, and it worked a treat. (If you're feeling brave I would suggest doing in situ as in removing the brittle clips I damaged the edges a little)
Hope this helps anyone in the same boat! Nice thing about this guard is you can still use the boot shelves.
