Video Transcript for Yakima WindShield Fairing for Roof Racks Review

Today we'll be taking a look at the Yakima windshield fairing. These are available in a variety of different sizes, at 52 inches long part number Y05019, and 46 inches long, part number Y05018, at 34 inches long, part number Y05016. We'll be working with the 40 inch long one, and that's part number Y05017. This universal fairing deflects wind around your roof rack to drastically reduce noise and drag. It's sleek design enhances the overall look of your roof rack. It's an easy clamp on installation, and the padded feet are going to protect your vehicle's finish.

The theft deterring hardware requires the included tool for installation for removal. The fairing is constructed out of a flexible heavy duty plastic, and it's covered by Yakima's love it till you leave it lifetime warranty. Now that we've gone over the features, I'll go ahead and show you how to get it installed. First thing we want to do is go ahead and set our fairing in position. Today, we're working with the Yakima jet stream crossbar, but this will work with your round, square, arrow, elliptical and most factory refrac systems. Let's go ahead and set it in place.

We want to make sure the notch portion sits in our crossbar like this, and then we can go ahead and center it up. Looks like we need to come this way a little bit. Once we've got it centered up, we can then bring our straps around and then we're going to connect it to the underside here. Once we've got them all connected, we can then tighten them down with our included tool. As you can see, it's drawing the strap through, and it'll be a nice snug fit.

Once we get it nice and tight, we can just repeat it for the other 3 straps. With all those tightened down, let's go ahead and take our strap and tuck it in the keeper here. Just like that. Now the last thing that we can do is take our clear pad and place it on our vehicle where our fairing comes in contact. That's just to protect our vehicle from any harm. That's going to complete our look at the Yakima windshield fairing, part number Y05017..

Ive had a roof rack for years now...why did I wait until now to get this fairing? Shipping was fast and installation was easy as 1-2-3 and took maybe 10 minutes. Visually pleasing and the noise inside at speed has been cut by at least 80%!!

Easy to assemble, sturdy and really helps dampen the air flow around your front bar, thus almost eliminating the noise. Great product, solid customer service from etrailer.com.

Excellent service, great quality product, and arrived exactly on time! Love etrailer!! Have another order to place!! Thank you!



- Y05017
by:

Arrived earlier than expected. Instructions could have been a bit more clear regarding installation, but easy enough. The frustration came when I actually installed the car-top carrier. This product makes the installation of a Yakima car-top carrier significantly more difficult - which is odd since they are the same brand and you would think they would be more compatible. It worked and noise issues were kept to a minimum during our drive, but during installation of the car-top carrier I was concerned the WindShield would crack/break (thankfully it didn't).

Product took the air noise away completely. E Trailer was extremely prompt in processing and shipping my order. This is the second item I have purchased from them and I would give them rave reviews. Their customer service was tops also when I had questions.

Easy purchase. Arrived on-time. Easy to install. Looks great. I would prefer slightly larger clear strips for the roof of the car, just to allow a little greater room for error, but this is a minor suggestion.

This company deserves a 5-star review. They were very responsive & communicated every step of the way. The fairing I purchased was exactly what I needed & came with clear instructions.

Yakima 40" fairing for a 2010 Toyota Prius. Fit is not as good as the earlier fairings, there is a substantial amount of space between the fairing itself and my round bar. The including mounting is not very secure from would-be thieves, as it would only take a knife to cut through the four straps that encircle the bar with yakima-produced zip ties. At [a high price], this should have better secure mounting. No "whistling" noticed yet at highway speeds, and seems to do the job to streamline my rack.

  • Recommended Yakima WindShield Fairing for Factory Roof Rack on 2019 Subaru Crosstrek
    The Yakima 40 inch WindShield Fairing you'd looked at, part # Y05017 is what Yakima recommends. Yakima confirms that the ratcheting fasteners used by the fairing would indeed be compatible with your factory roof rack and would do an excellent job quieting some of that wind noise you're experiencing. I've linked to a product demonstration video featuring the Yakima WindShield fairing.

  • Can Yakima Fairings Fit on Rhino Rack Crossbars
    Yakima fairings can basically fit any crossbar size and shape due to the zip strap system they have for attachment. We have two fairings that are pretty close in size to the bars you have as well. We have the 40 inch part # Y05017 and the 46 part # Y05018. When picking out a fairing you want to go with the length that closest matches the distance between the feet of the rack.

  • WindShield Fairing Recommendation for Thule Wingbar Evo on 2010 Volkswagen CC
    The Yakima WindShield Fairing 40" Long, part # Y05017 is the one I recommend for the Thule Wingbar crossbar on your 2010 Volkswagen CC. The WindShield Fairing will strap around your crossbar and fit well within the 44" space you have. Check out the installation video for the Yakima WindShield Fairing at the bottom of the page.

    The correct Yakima fairing for your 2019 Volvo XC90 with the round bar roof rack part # Y00409, # Y03536, and # Y00147 that you referenced is the part # Y05017 that you referenced which measures 40 inches.

  • Will Yakima Fairing Interfere with Sun Roof on a 2015 Subaru Forester
    I looked at some pictures of a Yakima roof rack installed on a 2015 Subaru Forester with a sun roof and it does appear that the fairing, # Y05017, will make contact with the sun roof. However, the only way to know for sure is to install the fairing and see where it rests and if the roof can open with the fairing in place. If the sun roof opens towards the back of the vehicle and does not raise up at the front of the of the sun roof then it will not be an issue.

  • Recommended Yakima WindShield Fairing Size for 2016 BMW X1 with 42" Crossbars

  • Wind Fairing Recommendation for 2019 Subaru WRX with Rhino Rack RS 2500 Roof Rack
    To determine the best fairing for your application you want to measure the front crossbar between the towers. The fairing should fill that space without going past the roof line where it would start to create its own drag versus reducing the drag of the roof rack. Because you have the 2019 WRX, the RS2500 has a front Crossbar that is 39-1/2 inches long so I recommend the Yakima WindShield Fairing for Roof Racks - 40" Long # Y05017 for you. This will be the best size for your vehicle. I've...

  • Length Between Straps on 40 Inch Yakima WindShield for 2015 Ford Fiesta
    There are actually 4 straps on the Yakima WindShield # Y05017. These are spaced 10" apart, as you can see in the accompanying photo. That amount of space will be plenty to mount each of your Rhino-Rack MountainTrail Rooftop Bike Carriers # RBC035 on your 2015 Ford Fiesta while using the WindShield. I've added a link to a video review of the WindShield for you to take a look at as well.

  • Fairing for 49 Inch Wide Rhino-Rack Pioneer Platform Rack # JA8647
    Since the Rhino-Rack Pioneer Platform Rack # JA8647 is 49 inches wide I recommend going with a wider fairing, # Y05018, for more coverage. The next size up from there is 52 inches, # Y05019. The Pioneer racks weren't designed for any specific fairing so getting one to fit could potentially take a little creativity to install (if one of the floor rails on the rack gets in the way).

  • Roof Rack Fairing Recommendation that will fit Factory Crossbars of 2015 Subaru Outback
    Yes, the Yakima Fairings like the part # Y05017 can attach to any crossbar shape as they use zip straps. THis is a 40 inch long fairing that would work well. For a shorter 34 inch fairing we have the part # Y05016 which may fit better. Basically you want to go with a fairing that matches the distance between your raised roof rails that run front to back.

  • Wind Fairing for 2018 Toyota Tacoma Double Cab with Factory Roof Rack
    Adding a wind fairing is certainly possible, but a roof rack is only available from Thule if you have a naked roof and there is an option from Yakima if you have raised side rails that run front to back (in other words, there will be a space under the rails, sort of like a handle). This would be the Yakima JetStream Crossbars # Y00426 (Black) or # Y00429 (Silver) along with the TimberLine Towers for Yakima Crossbars - Raised, Factory Side Rails # Y00147. Yakima recommends the 40 inch...

  • Fairing Compatible With Roof Mounted Bike Carrier
    The Yakima WindShield Fairing for Roof Racks - 40" Long # Y05017 can be used with the Yakima HighSpeed Roof Bike Rack - Fork Mount - Clamp On # Y02115, you just need to put the bike rack within the fairing attachment locations. A fairing is a wise add with any roof rack to reduce wind noise and drag. I recommend using as wide a fairing as fit between the towers or rails of your roof rack system. Depending on the width of your rack, you may want to consider going bigger like the Yakima...

  • Replacement Foot Pads For Yakima Windshield Fairing
    I have a solution for you. However, the clear acrylic pads are only available with a new fairing like # Y05017. Yakima does offer # Y8870045 Replacement Foot Pads. This part will work as a replacement for the foot pads on all models of Yakima fairings. The pads attach to the faring's feet to protect your vehicle's paint.

  • Fairing for 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee With Factory Crossbars
    I recommend taking a look at the Yakima wind fairings, which will fit your 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee's OEM crossbars. The Yakima WindShield comes in a number of different sizes: 34 inches # Y05016, 40 inches # Y05017, 46 inches # Y05018 and 52 inches # Y05019. If you measure the distance between where your crossbars attach that will give you the best idea of the size you'll need. I've added a link to a video review of this fairing for you to take a look at.

  • Roof Rack Fairing Thats Compatible With Aero-Style Crossbars
    For a Fairing that's compatible with Aero-style roof crossbars, I'd recommend the Rhino Rack 44 inch Fairing, part # RRRF3. The fairing will fit crossbars up to 1-1/4 inches tall and 3-1/2 inches wide. The Yakima 44 inch fairing you mentioned has been discontinued. The 40 inch # Y05017 is compatible with round, square, aero, elliptical, and most factory crossbars

  • Yakima 40 Inch Fairing Compatibility with 50 Inch Core Bar Crossbars
    Yes. The Yakima WindShield Fairing for Roof Racks - 40" Long # Y05017 will work well on your 2018 Mazda CX5 with 50 inch Core Bars. The 40 inch fairing will fit well between your towers and will greatly reduce the wind noise of your crossbars. I've attached a video of this installation on Core Bars to assist.

  • Fairing Recommendation for 2014 Ford Fiesta with Rola Roof Rack
    For the Rola roof rack the fairing you would want is the Yakima # Y05017. This will fit well between the feet of the Rola rack and will divert the air over the bars. The reason I recommended a Yakima fairing is because Rola does not make any and the Yakima fairings are designed to fit all crossbar shapes due to the strap style of attachment hardware I attached a picture of.

  • Will the Yakima WindShield Fairing Fit the Factory Roof Rack of a 2012 Toyota FJ Cruiser
    The Yakima WindShield Fairing, part # Y05017, is designed to fit a variety of roof racks, including factory racks. The 2012 Toyota FJ Cruiser OEM roof rack definitely has a unique system, but the front bar is all that matters for the WindShield. The front bar looks to be an aero-style bar, so the straps of the WindShield will work just fine. In fact, the installation video of this deflector features a roof rack with aero-style bars, so the installation will be the same. I've linked to...

  • How to Pick Out Fairing for All Styles of Crossbars
    The great thing about the Yakima roof fairings is that there are several lengths available and they mounting hardware allows it to fit all crossbar dimensions. The trick to picking out the correct size is to measure the distance between the feet of your roof rack and go with the fairing that best matches that dimension. So for a 40 inch fairing we have part # Y05017, 46 inch part # Y05018, 52 inch # Y05019, and 34 inch part # Y05016.

We have a 40 inch wide fairing that would fit the width of your 39 inch fairing well as part # Y05017.

  • Fairing Size Recommendation for 2018 Hyundai Sonata with Yakima Corebar Roof Rack
    For your 2018 Hyundai Sonata with a naked roof Yakima does recommend the roof rack part numbers # Y00422, # Y00146, # Y06137, and # Y06127 that you referenced. Yakima recommend the 40 inch fairing for this roof rack part number # Y05017. This trick to picking out the correct fairing though is to base it off of the distance between the feet of the rack which is why the fairing is much shorter than the length of the bars.

  • Fairing Recommendation 2016 Jeep Cherokee with Ski Rack to Reduce Wind Noise
    We do offer a few fairings that will work well to reduce wind noise. You will need to measure between the feet or rails of your roof rack to pick out the correct size. Yakima fairings can fit basically all crossbar dimensions so here are the ones that would fit: # Y05016 for 34 inch long # Y05017 for 40 inch long # Y05018 for 46 inch long # Y05019 for 52 inch long The one that closest matches the distance between the roof rails or feet of your rack is the one to use.

    Yakima roof rack fairings such as the 40-inch # Y05017 are designed with a mounting strap system that allows them to install on Yakima's traditional round bars, but also on square, aerodynamic, elliptical, and also most factory-installed roof rack crossbars so it should work well for you on your 2012 Honda CR-V.

    According to my research the 40" long Yakima WindShield Fairing for Roof Racks # Y05017 should be the perfect size for the roof rack on your 2014 Mazda 5. If you wanted to stick with the Thule brand then you can use either the 38" AirScreen Fairing XT # TH72WV or the 44" Long # TH82WV instead. You can use a tape measure to compare the different lengths with your roof to make sure you get the look you're wanting.

    The Yakima WindShield Fairing for Roof Racks - 46" Long, # Y05018, is almost the same length of your entire crossbar. The Q towers unfortunately hit at the same place as the mounts for the WindShield fairing. We recommend the 40 Inch Yakima Windshield Fairing for Roof Racks # Y05017 for your application.

  • Yakima Wind Fairing Hardware and Crossbar Shape Compatibility
    The key for any given wind fairing to fit on a crossbar, say the 40-inch Yakima # Y05017, is the shape of the crossbar. Most fairings, including this one, are designed with mounting hardware that will work on multiple bar shapes including square, round, elliptical and aerodynamic, and also factory-installed crossbars. If your bars are 1-1/2-inches square in profile then this fairing should fit well. Hardware kit # Y8870044 only allows mounting on round Yakima crossbars like # Y00408.

  • Fairing Recommendation for Rola Triple Bar Roof Rack on 2016 RAM ProMaster City for Wind Noise
    A fairing will defect the wind over your Rola roof rack part # 59633 that you referenced. The ones to use are the Yakima fairing as they can basically fit any bar style out there. Since the part # 59633 is a 47 inch long bar you would want the part # Y05017 which is a 40 inch fairing. This will drastically reduce the wind noise.
