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 34 inches long, part number Y05016; at 40 inches long, part number Y05017; at 46 inches long, part number Y05018; at 52 inches long, part number Y05019. The one we'll be working with today is 40 inches long, but they all share the same features. This universal fairing deflects wind around your roof rack to drastically reduce noise and drag. Its 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 or 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 JetStream Crossbar, but this will work with your round, square, arrow, elliptical, and most factory roof rack systems. Let's go ahead and set it in place. We want to make sure the notched portion sits in our crossbar like this, and then we can go ahead and center it up.

Looks like I 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. 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'll complete our look at the Yakima windshield fairing.

Excellent fairing. The only downside is that the package didn’t come with the clear Pieces to put on my car so it would scrextch the paint. Idk if they didn’t pack it or just don’t supply those anymore but of they do I would like to and that sent to me 831755

Pretty simple to install to existing round bar rack. Mounting strap locations lined up with tower bases, but I was able to finesse things to work with no issues. Nice look and reduced wind noise on my 2004 VW R32 462344

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

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
