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..

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). 581760

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. 434741

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. 373521

The deflector instantly quieted what was a very noisy rack above 45mph. The deflector (and racks) have been on since the moment I bought them. It's a great product strong, durable, and effective. Well worth the price. 385102

Review from a similar Yakima WindShield in Accessories and Parts


Was considering building a DIY wind deflector for my Ford Transit with Yakima roof racks, but opted for the Yakima Wind Shield because I have the Yakima Racks with the Core Bar. Anything I make would not looks as good as the Wind Shield. Between my racks, there are 2 solar panels. I needed a means of directing the wind 'over' the solar panels as opposed to allowing the air to go under the panels which could cause a separation. The assembly and installation was very simple. It blends in well and enhances the looks of the van considerably. I have not tested it yet for sound reduction however, I feel confident that it works as advertised. Very impressed with Yakima engineering in general. Have other Yakima products as well as Thule. I believe they have Thule beat in all respects. 567922

This fairing fit nicely over my factory moonroof and aftermarket wind deflector on my 2012 Toyota Tundra Crewmax. It will be important to move the front rack into a position to allow the fairing to rest just behind the factory roof mounted XM antenna pod. 44784

Deflector itself is fine, but with the front crossbar location on our 2012 Mitsubishi being so far back and right over the sunroof, it just did not make sense to install the deflector. Not a flaw of the deflector itself, just saying that you should be thoughtful of where the front bar is located and where the deflector will be on your vehicle before deciding to purchase. 462345

Since adding a roof rack on my car, I have had to put up with an irritating, loud howling noise, especially when driving over 40 mph. I heard that a fairing would cut the wind resistance and reduce the noise, but I had no idea how much! I should have gotten this a long time ago. Can't believe the BIG difference a fairing makes. 16955

  • Solution for Wind Noise with the Malone Roof Rack part # MPG201
  • Roof racks can add some wind noise. Luckily there is a solution for that. If you install a wind fairing you'll direct the air over the bars and the noise will go away. For a fairing to use with the Malone roof rack part # MPG201 the part # Y05017 would be what you need. You can also try moving the bars further back on your rack to see if that helps too.

  • 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...

  • Fairing Recommendation for Sportrack Roof Rack part # SR1010
  • The best fairing option for the Sportrack Roof Rack part # SR1010 is going to be the Yakima Fairing part # Y05017 that you referenced. When picking out a fairing you want to go with the size that matches the distance between the feet of the rack. So the 40 inch long Yakima would be a great option.

  • 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.

  • Recommended Wind Fairing for a 2015 Volkswagen Jetta with Factory Roof Rack
  • The best way to choose the correct wind fairing for a roof rack is to measure the distance between the mounting feet. I don't have this measurement for your 2015 Volkswagen Jetta but based on the cross bar size of some similar aftermarket roof racks (39-1/2" long), you most likely need to use the Yakima WindShield Fairing part # part # Y05016 which is 34" long. You made a good choice with the Yakima WindShield Fairing as the mounting system is one of the most universal styles on the...

  • Fairing Recommendation for 2014 Ford Fiesta with Rola Roof Rack
  • For the Rola roof rack part # 59768 which is a confirmed fit for your 2014 Ford Fiesta 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.

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...

That said, the above will actually be the best option for frequent off and on use as it will take considerably less time to remove/install when compared to a custom fit system.

  • 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.

  • Fairing Recommendation for Use with Rola Cargo Basket to Help Reduce Wind Noise
  • We have fairings that can attach from the crossbars of your roof rack down to the roof of your 2013 Subaru Outback Wagon but nothing that attaches directly to the Rola # 59504. The Yakima fairings can attach to all crossbar shapes due to their universal mounting design. The best way to pick one out is to measure between the feet of the crossbars or the side rails that run front to back and go with the fairing that fits the closest to that. Like the part # Y05017 is 40 inches long and...

  • Roof Rack Fairing Thats Compatible With Aero-Style Crossbars

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

  • Replacement Rubber Pads for a 40 Inch Yakima Fairing

  • How to Pick Out Fairing for 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee
  • Measure the distance between the feet of your crossbars (the portion of the rack that holds the bar to the roof) and pick a fairing that measures the closest to that dimension as possible. The Yakima Fairings can fit all bar shapes so they are what we normally recommend for OEM roof racks like your 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee. Below are the available sizes we offer: # Y05016 for a 34 inch fairing # Y05017 for a 40 inch fairing # Y05018 for a 46 inch fairing # Y05019 for a 52 inch fairing

  • Rola Roof Rack & Ski/Snowboard Carriers for Elliptical Bars on 2016 Ford Fiesta with Bare Roof
  • The Rola roof racks that fit your 2016 Ford Fiesta with a bare roof are the Sport Series rack that fits the 5-door hatchback # 59768, and part # 59769 which fits the 4-door sedan. Both of these racks feature elliptical-shape crossbars that are quieter than round or square bars and these reduce the need for a wind fairing. Still, if you want one use # Y05017. Most rack makers recommend NOT opening the sun roof/moon roof on a vehicle when a roof rack is installed since some mounted accessories,...

  • Availability of Different Length Yakima Fairings

To pick out the correct length you'd want to measure the distance between the feet of your rack and go with the length that fits that dimension the best.

  • 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).

  • 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.

  • Fairing Recommendation to Fit 2013 Subaru Impreza

The Yakima fairings can basically fit any crossbar style due to their mounting straps.

  • The trick to picking out a roof rack fairing is to go with the length of fairing that best matches the distance between the feet of the roof rack. If that distance is closer to 46 inches you'd want the part # Y05018 or if it's closer to 40 inches you'd want the # Y05017.

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.

  • Solutions for Whistling on Rola Sport Series Roof Rack
  • I definitely have a few potential solutions for the whistling you are hearing with your Rola Sport Series Roof Rack # 59768. I first recommend checking the crossbars on your roof to make sure that rubber strip on top of the bars is securely seated into position. We find a lot of times when customers note a loud whistling with their aero-style bars it is simply because the rubber channel strip is not installed, allowing wind to flow through the open channel and produce noise.

  • Fairing Recommendation that Fits Thule Rapid Aero Crossbars
  • I have a solution for you, but the Rapid Aero crossbar from Thule is their older design and not what the # TH8702 would fit. The only fairing that's going to fit is a Yakima fairing since they use a strap type attachment that can basically fit any crossbar size out there. For a 40 inch long fairing we have the part # Y05017 or for a 46 inch part # Y05018.

  • How to Select Best Fairing for Factory Roof Rack on 2012 BMW X5
  • The best way to select a roof rack fairing for reduced wind noise on your 2012 BMW X5 is to measure the dimensions of the crossbars. Knowing their length, width and thickness will ensure you choose a fairing that will fit on those bars. For instance, the Rhino Rack # RRRF2 fairing is 38-inches and fits on bars having dimensions up to 3-1/2-inches wide and 1-1/4-inches thick. It also requires at least 30-1/2-inches of bar space between the rack legs. The Yakima Fairing # Y05017 is slightly...
