Today we're working with a 2012 Volkswagen Passat and we're going to be test fittingthe Yakima 44" Fairing, part number Y07048. Now, we've already got our fairing put together and we're ready to mount it up on ourcrossbar. We'll take the four clips and fit them around our front crossbar. We do wantto make sure that the fairing is centered between the Q Towers. Once we've done that,we go back and insert our carriage bolts into the two clips at the end and tighten themdown with a wing nut. And with that our fairing's installed and we're ready to hit theroad.
The fairing will serve to help keep wind noise down. As turbulence builds uparound the round bars the fairing moves the air up and over the bars, keeping thingsquiet. That's it for our test fit of the Yakima 44" Roof Fairing, part number Y07048 on a 2012Volkswagen Passat.
Today on our 2013 Volkswagen Passat, well be test fitting the Yakima Fairing for Yakima Roof Rack Cross Bars, part number y07048. Now with our roof rack and cross bars already assembled, well take the fairing and set it onto the front cross bar getting it as centered as possible to ensure the most aerodynamic fit. Well then use the included bolt and wing nut to secure the fairing to the cross bars on the two outside holes of the fairing. And that completes todays test fit for the 44-inch fairing by Yakima for Yakima Roof Rack Cross Bars, part number y07048, on our 2013 Volkswagen Passat.
