Are your side bars the ones with the rubber foot pads.? If so they're the same as mine and are a nightmare to fit if you don't have a ramp to lift the van, the black bars shown in the pic go underneath from one side to the other rather than front to back, don't do any cutting, you shouldn't need to, hope this helps??:*

I think they look the right ones. Cut a bigger hole. I used a dremel type hand cutter. Started small and got bigger. They are a bit of a pain to fit and the front has a captive nut that fits up into a box section (the hole on the picture). Remember and use some copperslip or similar because i don't know how easy they will be to remove after a few winters of salt.
This is a pic of the mount hole at the front. I was sad enough to take a picture. Front mud flap is to the RHS of the photo to get your orientation right. Good luck........no swearing mind!T:
