You can pick suitable furniture plugs and silicone them in place.

I read somewhere on this website that the stock roof holes for 2014+ Transit Connect (Turneo over there?) are 6mm by 12mm oblong, except the pair over the driver compartment is round holes. I'm not sure which generation of the van you have and if the OEM holes were used or somebody drilled their own. Perhaps something similar to this (sized properly, of course) would seal up the holes for you if they were drilled. http://www.amazon.co.uk/Rawlplug-240-Card-Rawlnuts-30mm/dp/B0001P0KAO

Here's lots of different types/sizes of the "Rawl Plugs", perhaps you'll find something useful... http://www.amazon.co.uk/s/ref=nb_sb_noss_2?url=search-alias%3Ddiy&field-keywords=Rawlplug+rubber&rh=n%3A79903031%2Ck%3ARawlplug+rubber

Tourneo Connect = wagon

Transit Connect = panel van

Thank you, sir! Hard to keep track of the names across the pond :)

I guess they wanted to reserve the Transit name for commercial vehicles only as it's been the synonym of hauling stuff around for the past 40 years.
