Why you want to use the scroll-bar? Is Ranorex not able to show you an off-screen element (ensure visible doesn't work)?

Or do you have a special use case for this scrollbars?

The IE scroll-bars aren't track-able, because they are owner drawn by Microsoft. We don't know why they do that, but there is no way to access them. We tried many ways to get the scroll-bars, but no way lead us to the success path, sorry.
