I'm sorry if this is a stupid question, but what are these holes? They appear to be cutting the door rubber. This is my first Vuaxhall. It feels to me like its some trim that is missing and needs to go back? I'm not sure if it shows up but there is a screw thread in the hole.

Any help appreciated. Thanks in advance

They are for roof bars , looks like someone has had them on before .the metal mounts are held on with screws that go into those threads .I’ve used them many times and sometimes the screws don’t go in very well and that could cross thread .

The Thule roof bars i had for mine, only had a knob, and no threads.

Had to line it up to the hole, but no threading it in.

Looks to me like some bellend did not position the knob right, and then tightened the roof bar mounting screw, denting the car.

Even original roof bars may cause this if the connecting bolts are over-tighthened. That's was the reason why GM released updated version with modified torque wrench to avoid this.
