The Thule windscreen was EZ to install and made a significant difference in wind noise from my Thule square bar rack system. The windscreen fit perfectly between the factory rails on my '17 Toyota 4Runner. I went from putting the rack on when I needed it to leaving it on all the time. Now I use it more often because its less hassle and without the windnoise! 620407

It help reduce the wind noise. Make sure the foot pad is rest on the sunroof rail(as pic I attach). Otherwise if u open ur sunroof the wind. Will push ur defector down. And cause to bang and scratch up ur roof. Over all it good 253034

Fairly simple to install, tho getting all feet touching at the same time takes a few passes. Also, not wanting to lift the screen too much after it was installed and tightened, getting the decals on the roof under the feet was tricky. As far as performance - I test drove at 80 mph and noticed none of the whistling I had heard from my square Thule bars - which was why I ordered this product. 425122

Great product at a fair price. The customer service at etrailer is exceptional!!! The package arrived on time and customer service followed up to ensure everything was ok with my order. That is a great way to differentiate between companies. It’s not always just about price. etrailer takes customer service to a higher level. The wind deflector I ordered has taken care of the wind noise I experienced at highway speeds. I read several reviews about this product offering from Thule on the etrailer site and tried it. Very pleased with the results and extremely satisfied with the customer service! Buy with confidence from here!! 547405

  • Fairing Needed for Thule AeroBlade Crossbars
  • We do have fairings that are compatible with Thule roof rack systems like your AeroBlade crossbars. They come in the following lengths: 32" - part # TH8700 38" - part # TH8701 44" - part # TH8702 Since you already bought a fairing you can try using the Replacement Load Bar Clip # 8537361 for Thule crossbars, but there is no guarantee that it is compatible with a different fairing. Aero style crossbars still have some wind noise, but they are not nearly as noisy as the traditional...

  • Recommended Thule Crossbars and Fairing for 2017 Volkswagen Golf SportWagen
  • Starting with the crossbars, the Thule Complete Crossroad Kit # TH45050 referenced in your question is confirmed to fit your 2017 Volkswagen Golf SportWagen and will simply mount to the factory side rails on the roof. These are 50 inch square crossbars that will provide a weight capacity of 165 pounds. Installing fairing like the Thule AirScreen 38 inch # TH8701 or the 44 inch # TH8702 is a great idea. Once mounted to the crossbars, these will drastically reduce noise and drag when driving....

  • Will Thule AirScreen Fairing fit SportRack Roof Rack on 2006 Toyota Corolla?
  • There is a wind deflector that will work with the SportRack Roof Rack # SR1002 on your 2006 Toyota Corolla, but the Thule AirScreen Fairing # TH8701 is designed to be used with Thule crossbars. Instead, I recommend the Yakima WindShield Fairing # Y05017, which is a universal fit. This is a 40" wind deflector which should work well with your 50" crossbars, though to make sure you will want to measure the distance between the feet of your SportRack to ensure there is enough room. There is...

  • Roof Rack Wind Fairing for a 2015 Toyota Tacoma with Factory Roof Rack
  • I checked which size fairing the aftermarket roof racks take on the 2015 Toyota Tacoma and they are in the 40 inch range. Thule has a 38 inch model, # TH8701. Rhino-Rack also has a 38 inch model, # RRRF2. Inno has 40 inch models, # INA261 or # INA271. And Yakima also has a 40 inch model, # Y05017. I have linked videos of these fairings for you. The overall length of a fairing as well as its mounts need to be within the space between the roof rack uprights. If you have more space let...

  • Fairing Recommendation for 2016 Volkswagen Golf SportWagen with Thule Aeroblade Edge Roof Rack
  • Since you have the Thule Aeroblade Edge roof rack part number # TH7501B-TH7502B installed on your 2016 Volkswagen Golf Sportwagen you'd need the shorter 32 inch long fairing part # TH8700 to better match the length of the bars. Ideally the fairing you go with matches the same width as the feet of the roof rack.

  • Will Replacement Aero Bar Clip for Thule AirScreen Fairings Fit BMW OEM Crossbars
  • The Replacement Aero Bar Clip for Thule AirScreen Fairings # 8528583001 is very likely to fit your 2011 BMW crossbars so long as they are aero bars. It is a flexible plastic that measures about 4-3/4" x 1". The biggest issue is going to be with what fairing you have because this is only designed to work with Thule AirScreen Fairings such as # TH8701.

For locks you can use kit # TH450400. The Motion XT cargo box # TH6298B will fit properly on this rack and provide you with 18-cubic feet of storage volume. You'll have full rear hatch opening access with the box installed as long as there is 51-1/4-inches between the center of the front rack bar and seam...

  • Availability of Wind Fairing for OEM Crossbars on a 2014 Audi SQ5

I like the Thule AirScreen Fairings which are compatible with aero bars that are a max of 3-1/4" long x 1-1/8" tall or square bars that are a max of 1-3/8" long x 1" tall. These come in the following sizes: 32" - # TH8700 38" - # TH8701 44" - # TH8702 52" - # TH8703 Simply choose the length that will best fit between the roof rack legs on your Audi.

  • Fairing Recommendation to Fit 2013 Subaru Impreza
  • I have a very similar solution I can point you towards, but the Thule fairing part # TH8701 cannot fit factory crossbars like what you have on your 2013 Subaru Impreza, instead we have the Yakima part # Y05017 which can fit your bars and is similar in length at 40 inches. The Yakima fairings can basically fit any crossbar style due to their mounting straps.

  • Will the Thule AirScreen Fit the SportRack Semi-Custom Roof Rack
  • The Thule AirScreen Fairing for Roof Racks part # TH8701 if purchased new would have come with adapters for both aero and square crossbars. If you have misplaced the square crossbar adapters then you can replace them with part # 853-7362. The square crossbar adapters are designed to work specifically with the Thule square load bars but the load bars included with the SportRack Semi-Custom Roof Rack for Naked Roofs part # SR1010 have the same dimensions (1-1/4" wide) therefore should allow...

  • Fairing Recommendation for 2012 Toyota Prius C Roof Rack

  • Fairing Recommendation for Thule Roof Rack on 2019 Subaru WRX STi
  • The trick to picking out the correct wind fairing length for a roof rack is to base it off of the distance between the feet of the rack. Since the recommended Thule Aeroblade roof rack part numbers # TH711420, # TH480R, and # THKIT1649 gave you a 53 inch long crossbar the 44 inch length part # TH8702 would be your best option most likely. But if the distance is less than 44 inches between the feet the 38 inch long fairing part # TH8701 would be what you'd need.

  • Can Thule Fairing Be Used with Thule Hullavator Kayak Carrier
  • Thule AirScreen Fairing, such as the 38 Inch Long # TH8701, is compatible with the Thule Hullavator Pro Kayak Carrier # TH898 referenced in your question. You will simply need to mount the carrier within the fairing attachment locations. When choosing a fairing product for your vehicle's crossbars, I recommend selecting as wide a fairing as will fit between the towers or rails on your roof. This Thule fairing also comes in lengths of 32 inches # TH8700, 44 inches # TH8702, and 52 inches...

  • Fit of Thule # TH8701 Fairing on OEM Roof Rack on 2016 Subaru Forester
  • The fairing you'll need will depend on the exact dimensions of your crossbars. We do offer some fairings that could work, but keep in mind that the fairings are designed to work with aftermarket crossbars from Thule, Yakima or Rhino-Rack. The Thule # TH8701 is designed to fit crossbars that measure 3-1/4" long x 1-1/8" tall or 1-3/8" long x 1" tall. The Yakima fairings are designed to fit crossbars that are 1-1/8 inches wide. Finally, the Rhino-Rack # RRRF2 fairing is a fit for crossbars...

  • You should have no problem installing the Rhino-Rack Steel Mesh, Roof Mounted Cargo Tray # RPBS-S280 on your Thule square cross bars that have a Thule 38 inch Fairing # TH8701 installed on them. The fairing should not give the rack an uneven look as the clips of the fairing are pretty thick. However, what you could do is install a couple Replacement Load Bar Clip for Thule Roof Rack Fairings # 8537361 on the rear cross bar as well so that the # RPBS-S280 would sit as level as possible...

  • Which Thule Fairing is Recommended with 50-Inch Thule Cross Bars
  • Usually I would go with a fairing slightly shorter with your Thule load bars at 50-inches long. The 38-inch Thule fairing # TH8701 will work fine with your 2013 Subaru XV Crosstek. It is also a recommended fit per Thule. I did include an FAQ and installation video too.

If the crossbars on your Soul measure that size or smaller this fairing would work well for you. If your crossbars are bigger than 2-1/8 x 1-1/8 inches you may want to check out the Rhino-Rack Fairing for Roof Racks, part # RRRF3.

  • Parts Needed to Install Thule Aeroblade Roof Rack on 2018 Subaru WRX
  • Sounds like your 2018 Subaru WRX has the factory fixed mounting points on it's roof. Which means that the correct Thule fit kit is the part # THKIT3131. This allows the use of a Thule roof rack like the part # TH7602B-TH7603B which it sounds like you may already have. If you are looking for a fairing as well you'd need the part # TH8701 which is a confirmed fit and matches the bars. If you happen to have an older fairing there isn't a way to adapt it to the aero bars.

  • Correct Thule Fairing Size for Use on 2010 Nissan Pathfinder Roof Rack
  • The two Thule square bar roof racks that fit your 2010 Nissan Pathfinder with factory installed rails that run front to back both use 50-inch square load bars, part # THLB50. The recommended fairing size for these bars is Thule's 38-inch fairing # TH8701 which is shown in the linked video. The fairing will help to reduce wind-generated noise at higher speeds. It can be used either with or without the Thule logo facing forward.

The padded rubber bumpers on the bottom of the fairing do not have a "protective sticker" but you should have no concerns with them rubbing into the paint as the force applied to the bumpers is minimal.

If your vehicle roof has raised side rails, you will want to measure from inside to inside of the raised side rails to decide which length fairing will work for you. If your Sportage has a naked roof, you can measure from the rain gutter to rain gutter of the vehicle roof or from the inside to inside of the roof rack feet. The Thule AirScreen Fairing...

  • There is a way to get a fairing on your Volvo V50, but the Thule Roof Rack Fairing, part TH8701, is designed to fit either Thule Square Load Bars or Thule Aero Load Bars. Likewise, the Yakima Fairings will only fit Yakima load bars. Typically, the front cross bar on a factory system is far back enough that a fairing is not needed. Often times the Thule or Yakima roof racks will put the front bar close enough to the windshield that a fairing is needed or recommended. Depending on what...
