Product was delivered on time and undamaged. Installation was relatively quick and easy, and it fit as advertised. 693104

Fit perfect as well as everything else I purchased from etrailer.com. Entire roof rack system came from etrailer. Best price on the internet for quality name brand goods.... 8550

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

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

Great product. Reduces wind noise noticeably–though, obviously, not entirely. It's well engineered and assembles very easily. I wasn't sure about which size would be best for my Mini Cooper. I took a guess and went with the 38", and I think it's perfect. The mini has a sunroof and I was also concerned that there might be a conflict, but everything flows. etrailer was quick to ship and delivered just as advertised. I would buy again. 850493

Well designed product and very solid. No flappin about or additional noise if you mount it properly, and it killed all the noise I was getting from my roof rack. (Not a Thule) This was installed on a brilliant little 2013 Mini R56s (my child this car is), but I've got the Mini Roof Rack, so I knew I'd have to play with it to get it to work. This product comes with mounting hardware for two types of Thule cross bars - the square bits and their aero what-evers. If you cut the clasp section (the back) off the aero mounts their interior contour is almost identical to the stock Mini crossbar. All I needed then was some good quality stainless hose clamps and voila! Perfection! The only thing I don't "love" about this product is the hand-tightened fasteners. I feel like they'd been made difficult to grip making them harder to tighten. Depending on your vehicle and application, you're already having to squeeze your paw, upside down, into weird position to get to them and once you're there - already torque challenged - they don't give you much to work with and these fasteners control all adjustment, so if you don't get them good and tight, which you will with some fuss, you 'could' end up with some of that aforementioned flappin about. But even with that, it's a solid 5 star product and 'my child' has gotten more compliments than she has in a while since it went on. Oh! And can't forget etrailer.com! Smack in the middle of all this COVID business and it shows up at the door, right on time, like it was a normal Tuesday before the end-times. Good on you etrailer! Much obliged and exceedingly satisfied indeed. 792705

  • 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.

  • Roof Rack and Fairing Recommendation for 2019 Subaru Crosstrek with Sunroof
    We have roof racks that fit your 2019 Subaru Crosstrek with raised rails and a sunroof like the Thule WingBar Evo Crossbars # TH711420 and # TH710401 and then you could use the wind fairing part # TH8701 that you referenced but you would not want to have the sunroof open with the rack installed.

  • How To Determine the Correct Thule Fairing for 2016 Kia Sportage
    In order to determine which fairing is the best for your roof rack, you will want to take a quick measurement on your 2016 Kia Sportage. 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...

  • Are Thule Wind Fairings Compatible With SportRack Roof Rack on 2004 Honda Accord
    Thule wind fairings are compatible with the SportRack roof rack for your 2004 Honda Accord, though you will first want to make sure you get the correct roof rack, which will depend on if you have a 2-door or 4-door Accord; I will list the correct parts for you: - 2-Door Accord: SportRack Semi-Custom Roof Rack # SR1002 and Short-Roof Adapter for SportRack Semi-Custom Roof Racks # SR1116 - 4-Door Accord: SportRack Semi-Custom Roof Rack # SR1002 The correct fairing will be one that...

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • Recommended Roof Rack Fairing For 2015 Kia Soul With Factory Crossbars
    The Thule Fairing For Roof Racks, part # TH8701 is designed to fit Thule Rapid Aero, round, and square crossbars. The Thule Rapid Aero crossbars measure 2-1/8 x 1-1/8 inches. 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. This fairing measures 44 inches long and will fit crossbars that have a maximum...

  • Recommended Thule AirScreen Fairing For Thule AeroBlade Edge Roof Rack Bars

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Fairing Recommendation for 65 inch Thule Square Crossbars and Thule Hullavator
    Yes you can use a fairing with your square bars and an older Thule Hullavator kayak carrier. Since your bars are 65 inches long you'd want the 52 inch long Thule AirScreen part # TH8703. This will make a noticeable difference in the amount of noise.

  • Will The Thule Roof Rack Fairing fit the Factory Crossbars on a 2007 Hyundai Santa Fe
    The Thule Roof Rack Fairing, part TH871XT, 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 roof rack accessory you are using, some will actually...

  • Recommended Wind Fairing for 2019 Mini Clubman with OEM Crossbars
    For your 2019 Mini Clubman the OEM roof rack you will just want to go slightly smaller than the 42 inches you referenced for your fairing. I recommend the Yakima WindShield Fairing for Roof Racks - 40" Long # Y05017 which will work great with your crossbars. This fairing has a universal fit where other brands don't always fit OEM racks.

  • Fairing Recommendation for 2012 Toyota Prius C Roof Rack

  • Recommended Thule Fairing for the 2014 Ford Escape is Too Long
    What's also interesting is that Yakima recommends a shorter fairing than Thule for your 2014 Ford Escape. They recommend a 38 inch fairing. Would going with a shorter fairing allow it to clear the raised rails on your vehicle? The next shortest fairing would be the Thule Fairing 38 inch part # TH8701.

  • Can Roof Rack Fairing Rest on Sun Roof

  • Fairing Recommendation for Thule Roof Rack Installed on 2016 Mazda CX-3
    The best way to pick out a fairing for a roof rack is to go with the width that matches the distance between the feet of the roof rack. So for the Thule Wingbar roof rack part # TH711420, # TH710501, and # TH145136 that fits your 2016 Mazda CX-3 which uses bars that are 53 inches in length the best fairing size is the 44 inch fairing part # TH8702.

  • 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. 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 Thule fairing I recommend is part # TH8701 for your 2001 Toyota 4Runner as it is 38 inches. The fairing will fit Thule Rapid Aero, round and square load bars. According to Thule, the 38-inch fairing is the best fit.

  • Fairing Recommendation for 1999 Lexus GS300 Roof Rack
    The best way to pick out a fairing is to base it off of the distance between the feet of the roof rack. Since Thule does not make a roof rack that fits your vehicle you'd need a fairing that can fit all bar shapes. For that you'd want to go with a Yakima fairing as the Yakima fairings use mounts that can fit all bar shapes and sizes unlike the Thule which only fits Thule bars. So for a 40 inch fairing you'd want the part # Y05017. For 46 inch part # Y05018 For 34 inch part # Y05016

  • Can 44 Thule AirScreen Fairing Fit 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited with Mopar Roof Rack
    The Thule AirScreen Fairing # TH8702 will definitely fit around the Mopar roof rack on your 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited, you just need to check to make sure that the 44" length of the fairing fits inside your side rails. The clips themselves will be okay, I just don't have the exact measurement between your OEM flush rails to tell if that part is compatible or not. If you don't have 44" in that space then the 38" AirScreen # TH8701 should fit.

  • 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 Wingbar roof rack part numbers # TH711220, # TH460R, and # THKIT3131 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.

  • 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...

  • 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.
