Video Transcript for Yakima Q Tower Roof Rack Installation - 2015 Volkswagen Golf

Today on our 2015 Volkswagen GTI, we will be doing a test fit of the Yakima Q Tower roof rack system. For your round bar here, it's going to be part number Y00408. You also have your Q Towers, which is going to be part number Y00124, as well as two sets of foot packs. You will have your Y00664s, which in this case, is going to be for our back bar, and on the vehicle right now, we have our Y00663. Which, the only difference is that your bars are going to be a little bit shorter on the front than they are on the back for the Q clips here. We'll go ahead and go through how to get everything assembled. We will be using a few different tools, as well.

An Allen key, a flat head screwdriver, a soft tape, and a hard tape for when we get our bar measurement. Flip these caps up on your Q Towers, and we're going to go ahead and un-thread this piece here. All right, once that comes out, we're going to set it off to the side and now, we're going to go ahead and get our feet, our Q Towers, onto our bars. Once we got that side on, lets go ahead and put on the other side. So we'll go ahead and from the top part here, this bar over here is going to be 38 inches.

Lets go ahead and try and get these evenly spaced out. Let's go ahead and tighten up our Allen bolts here, and then I'll secure that gripper to the bottom of the bar so that our bar does not move. Come over to the other side and we'll do the same thing. Now that we got those on there, we'll go ahead and close up those plastic caps on the end. We'll go ahead and do this one and put the ends back on. You can slide your pinky in to that side over there and push it out, like so.

We'll just get it lined up and then thread it back in. Once you got that one started, go ahead and move to the other side real quick, because those will need to stay a little bit loose till we get it on the vehicle, then we can get everything straightened around. Let's go ahead and go through how to get your Q clips on. You're going to pull down on the clip. With both fingers, pull that clip out. Then, we'll go ahead and pull this piece out the back side.

From there, we'll go ahead and grab our clip, and it's going to go in facing towards the Q slot. The L facing towards the Q slot. They'll be two grooves, one on each side. This bar will actually sit inside those rails, as you can see there. We'll go ahead and line, or put our key back in there, our key lock. Once we have that back in, we'll go ahead and slide our clip back over. We'll go over to the other side here and do the same thing. There we go. Once we have that, it's time to put the foot pads on. We'll go ahead and push those on. Next, we'll go over to the other side and put it on, like so. Next, it comes with your Q Towers, you also have your two end caps. These will go on after we get it to this point, like so. Now we're ready to get it up on the vehicle and get our last of our measurements and get it all tightened up. Let's go ahead and open up our doors and we'll go ahead and get our rack system. Once you got that, you need to adjust your little turn knob here. That's going to pull this plate up a little bit and once you push down on the lever, you'll turn this. Go ahead and tighten it up as far as you need to. Once you're done, you'll pull down on this and it will pull this bracket up and over with this little hook that's on the backside, as you can see there. Let's go ahead and get the other side on. It should be nice and tight. We're going to go ahead and do ours at the minimum, at 32 inches. Let's just make sure that that's the right spot. From center to center of your bar, it's right at 32 inches. It's right where it needs to be. Let's check the other side and close up this side. This side does need to adjust a little bit, which will be real easy to do. Pick it up, move it to where we need it, then tighten it down. With everything tight and in place, that's going to complete our test fit of the Yakima Q Tower, round bar rack system, on our 2015 Volkswagen GTI.

etrailer is excellent...however, not too pleased with Yakima and these cross bars - second set in four years...they make them out of a steel that rusts quickly...better out of stainless or aluminum. Maybe that is their idea of planned obsolescence. I also learned not to install end caps...that accelerated the corrosive process.

I left the end caps off and the rust issue I had with previous bars is no longer a problem since water is not trapped in the bars.

I ordered the Yakima roof rack, with the Hullyrollers for the back crossbar and the Mako saddles for the front crossbar to use with my kayak. It arrived just like they told me and I put them on my car the eveningit arrived. Got to finlly use the roof rack on June 22 to go out kayaking and it worked great. Only thing is I did not know about the air reflector piece for the front crossbar. Now I will be ordering it to help with the wind noise.

Great rack, go on fast, easy to install and work well on my VW TDI wagon. Care has to be given and follow the instructions for the install to what type of rails you have. Works great carrying the VW luggage carrier and plan on using it to carry kayaks as well. Just have not decided what kayak rack type to get yet.



by:

The Yakima roof rack system is an Outstanding product. I purchased the product to replace the OEM roof rack because it was too flimsy to carry the tandem bike mount and my bike. The Yakima roof rack is solid and provides me the peace of mind while hauling my bike on the roof of my car. etrailer provided the product for the best price as always.

Still an outstanding product.

I've attachec a few pictures of the Yakima rack on my Audi Q7. It took a few attempts to find the right combination of attachments, but in the end, the pin attachments work best with the access points on the factory flush-mount rails. Great product!!!!!



by:

The rack has been so useful since I purchased it. Staff at etrailer.com were exceptionally helpful in getting the best option for my car and answering questions. I recommend this company, for its 110% customer service, excellent prices and timely delivery.



by:

roof racks showed up in great condition, and showed up as one package.... I should have ordered the J racks from here but I found them cheaper locally so Thule J racks compliment the whole setup and i am just about ready to hit the water :)

The installation of this rack system went very well, all of the instructions were easy to read and use. I have attached some pictures of our installation. The vehicle is a 1994 Honda Accord EX four door sedan

Roof Rack 2008 Saturn Astra The roof rack arrived one day early...The packaging was excellent and the quality of the product more than met my expectations. The instructions made the insulation very easy. It took less than 45 minutes to install the unit complete.



by:

Everything arrived as promised and earlier than expected just installed. Looks like it will do everything I need it to which is haul around paddleboards. So far so good!

Have been rocking my Yakima rack from etrailer.com for a year now. I am using rack in conjunction with a Tepui tent. Once I added the air deflector, I would say it's the perfect setup. The Yakima gives more clearance over the factory rack, so I was able to get my hands under it to secure the tent hardware. If you're thinking of upgrading your factory rack, I would not hesitate to use etrailer.com



by:

Great product and very easy to install! I called in to put my order in due to not trusting myself in getting one that fits my car. Jessica W. Was beyond professional and helpful in the process. She went also well above her position and tracked my order and sent additional information. Couldn’t be happier with the product and customer service!



by:
2017 Volkswagen Golf

Bought as a pkg for my 2017 Golf R with Round Bars since I had a bunch of Yakima bike racks and a canoe gunwale rack for my old Yakima set up. Installation was easy with good instructions. All measurements from the Yakima site appear to be spot on.

etrailer.com shipped these out quickly and all parts arrived without damage.



by:

I bought both the roof rack and the cage from etrailer! Put everything on myself...easy peasy!

We are so happy with etrailer. The product is high quality and it arrived one day before the expected day of delivery! Their customer services is exceptional - real people who know their stuff first hand. The installation was easy and is a prefect match for our Yakima Sky Box. We took the car to Zion National Park as shown on the photo taken at the Watchman Campground!

Roof rack on my 2005 Chevy Uplander. Also ordered the Q towers and fairing.



by:

Sturdy as all get out but a bit noisy on the freeway, if the flat bars had been an option when we purchased would have gone for those.



by:
2007 Subaru Forester

I ordered the Yakima RailGrab Kit with 48" round bars and the Gunwale Canoe Carrier Brackets on the advice of friends who have used a Yakima rack for years. I want to carry a canoe on my Subaru Forester, equipped with factory flush mounted rack, but needed something wider to hold my canoe, which is 38.5" at its center. This system is just the thing. It installs easily and the towers fit my the contours of my factory siderails perfectly. The Gunwale Brackets adjust with a twist-knob to snug up to the canoe for a secure fit. Once they're adjusted to the correct width, loading the canoe is easy-ever-after.

Note: the endcaps are included in the RailGrab package, as are two cam straps, so you don't need to buy these. At $300 for everything, etrailer has a great price, and the order was on my porch in less than a week. Emails to customer service were answered promptly, and a follow-up email to ask about my experience prompted me to write this very enthusiastic review. Thanks!

What can one say with Yakima products and how etrailer supports you, (or me), the customer. The Yakima round bar cross members and towers are great. Supports the weight and very little wind noise. Shipping was quick and undamaged.

If I need certain products I come to etrailer first and even after price checking others they can't be beat.



by:

Took a few months to get because covid-19 slowed production but worth the wait. It's awsome



by:
2016 Subaru Crosstrek

Excellent quality bars. I've carried everything from ladders to kayaks on these with no issues. I did have to add the wind deflector as these round bars are a little more noisy compared to the aerodynamic cross bar options. Ordering from etrailer is easy as can be. I've bought several items from them over the years and never had a bad experience. Just like Yakima, etrailer is all quality.



by:
2016 Toyota 4Runner

I use it on top of a 2016 Toyota 4Runner. A secure grab to the roof rails and good support for a 105 lb. rooftop tent. If the crossbars were square, it would be better for my particular application. But, that was my choice.



by:
Subaru Legacy

Very pleased with roof rack and canoe package for my Suburu Legacy Wagon. I couldn't find any racks in the junk yard, and spent a lot of money on the Yakima rack products. Very glad I did. This is the most secure canoe system I've ever worked with.
