Replaces 1 load bar clip for your Thule XT fairing for load bars. Fits all older model Thule AirScreen fairings.


I have an older Thule roof rack fairing and a few of the clips that hold the fairing to the roof rack had failed. I was concerned that I would have to replace the entire assembly for more than $xxx. I was delighted to find that etrailer had the fairing clips. They saved me close to $xxx and the fairing for the roof rack is as good as new a very after I installed the clips. Thanks, etrailer!


I ordered the replacement clips for my Thule wind fairing to fit my aftermarket roof rack crossbars and was worried they would not fit since the service rep at Thule said the fairing could only be fitted to square crossbars, which mine are not. I saw these clips at etrailer and they looked to be the same shape as my crossbars and since they were so cheap I ordered a set. It turned out they fit perfectly and am now able to use the fairing after all.

still works great, no issues

Clips arrived on time and were able to be installed in minutes. Good quality and great price! Completed the addition of my wind visor for my Thule roof rack.


Great to get hard to find parts from et railer


Parts are exactly as advertised and fit perfectly. Fast shipping and great service from Etrailer, as always.


These load bar clips were exactly what I needed to replace two cracked ones on my Thule fairing and were identical to the original ones. I purchased four and changed them all out. First class product and quick delivery!


The parts fitted perfect! I even have an off brand $40 roof rack and they looked to be the same shape and they snapped right on! I got the fairing for free from a friend and it was nice spending less than $20 to get them fitted perfect.


Excellent product at a very reasonable cost! Will go to again for all my future adventure needs!


I've been doing business with them for a few years now and etrailer is consistently on-target with their pricing, shipping and customer service.


Very happy with the product, fit perfectly and install was a breeze. Such a breeze I’m actually upset that I put this part off for so long! Great quality, and shipping was great as well. Even received the package 2 days early! Thanks etrailer, great work and keep it up!


Shipping was 3 weeks, but finally got the part. Fits as original part. Manufactured in 2021 so the plastic is not dried out


One clip was broken.

I am sorry to hear that this item arrived with a broken clip. I have sent your information over to our customer service department for them to better assist you.

Fast shipping! The right product!


The Thule load bar clip is a small but essential part of the roof rack fairing system. While searching the web for a replacement, what caught my attention was how easy it was to find it via "," even compared to the manufacturer's website and other sporting good outlets that carry the Thule brand. Unlike those other sites, "" let me see exactly what I looking for, making this replacement procedure quick and seamless. I had the part in just a few days. Definitely will recommend this vendor for hard to find parts.

So far so good - the Thule wind fairing load bar clips are working great, just as designed. They are only stressed twice per year: once on spring and once off fall. If they become brittle with age or slight usage I havent noticed it. And again, its great that etrailer has the inventory and easily navigated web site to help find these parts.

Direct shipping.unbeatable priceing.satisfied customer.


Great experience dealing with will definitely shop with them again.


Perfectly fit awesome product


I have had a great experience with I have purchased Thule parts to repair a Thule fairing damaged at in an automated car wash and the parts fit perfectly, restoring my Thule rack to brand new condition. I also purchased a trailer hitch which i installed myself. The instructions provided were excellent.


Similarly to my other reviews my bike carrier and roof rack were damaged by a tree. I'm glad to find the misc parts I need to restore my setup. etrailer has the best price on all the items I needed. These were back ordered, but etrailer did a great job notifying me of the status of my order. I was very happy when they got these in stock faster then they estimated!


The product doesn't have dimensions that the hook will go around and I thought that these would fit on my crossbars but the bars are too wide and these won't fit. I can't return them or else I would lose more money on shipping. Pretty disappointed that I can't get my money back because the dimensions are wrong.

These fairing mounting clips are meant for use with Thule square profile crossbars with the # 853-7362
Thule Square Bar Adapter for Fairing
adapters or the old elliptical profile Thule crossbars, but not the Aeroblade.
-- Etrailer Expert Mike L - 10/08/2018


1 of the 2 clips did break and they do not fit thule square bars. Also, no hardware is provided.

Thule does not include hardware with many of their replacement parts as most often the original hardware can be re-used. In order to install these clips on a Thule Square Bar, this adapter 853-7362 is required.
-- Etrailer Expert Victoria B - 08/17/2020


Perfect replacement for my Thule wind fairing. Fast shipping and inexpensive.

Still works like original parts.
Ben Z - 07/11/2020


Excellent product fits perfectly thanks ETRAILER.


I needed pieces to mount an older Thule Fairing to my roof rack. Item worked as advertised. Nice to see Thule spare parts readily available and at a reasonable price.


I broke a piece off my Thule wind fairing AND THESE GUYS ARE LITERALLY THE ONLY ONES THAT CARRY HARDWARE FOR IT. The prices were unbeatable and it was just great service.... I got an email to let me know about every step of my package( let me know they got my order, let me know my order was shipped, let me know my order was delivered). And best of all every email started with dear Taylor. It was personal which I like... Try hear guys out and you won't regret it... Check out my fairing now!!

  • Replacement Clip for Attaching Thule Roof Rack Fairing
    It looks as if you have an older fairing, and not the Thule AirScreen, so the # 8528583001 would not be compatible. For the fairing you have (judging by what little I can see in the photo you provided), you'd need the # 8537361 clips.

  • Thule Roof Rack Fairing Replacement Parts
    For your Thule fairing, it sounds like you need the Replacement Rubber Spacer for Thule Fairings # 853-5544. You may also need the Replacement Load Bar Clip for Thule Roof Rack Fairing # 8537361 to mount it. I've attached all the Thule fairing parts to assist.

    A replacement clip for AeroBlades is part # 8537361 . If you need to replace a bracket for the fairing itself, you'll need part # 853-5477

  • Thule Fairing Clamps that Secure To Cargo Basket
    That appears to be a Thule fairing for one of their cargo baskets. We have replacement mounts for it with the part # 853-5818 since it's supposed to have 5 clamps instead of the 3 that you have left.

  • Availability of Replacement Fastening Clips for Thule Roof Rack Fairing
    Looking at your photo, it's hard to make out which clips your fairing is currently using. The newer AirScreen fairing uses the # 8528583001 as a replacement while the older model used # 8537361. I've put together a photo for you showing them side by side, so you can compare to what you already have.

  • Is the Rhino Rack Steel Mesh Cargo Tray Compatible with Thule Bars and Fairing
    You should have no problem installing the Rhino-Rack Steel Mesh, Roof Mounted Cargo Tray # RPBS-S280 on your Thule square cross bars that have a Thule 38 inch Fairing # TH72WV installed on them. The fairing should not give the rack an uneven look as the clips of the fairing are pretty thick. However, what you could do is install a couple Replacement Load Bar Clip for Thule Roof Rack Fairings # 8537361 on the rear cross bar as well so that the # RPBS-S280 would sit as level as possible...

  • Replacement Square Bar Clamps for a Thule Roof Rack Wind Fairing
    Correct, the Replacement Load Bar Clip for Thule Roof Rack Fairing part # 8537361 and the Thule Square Bar Adapter for Fairing part # 853-7362 are what you need to repair your Thule Wind Fairing.

  • Can a Fairing be Added to Thule AeroBlade Roof Rack Crossbars
    No, the Thule fairing Load Bar Clip, # 8537361, does not fit the AeroBlade crossbars. If your bars are at or under 1-1/4" tall x 3-1/2" wide then you could use a Rhino-Rack fairing. There are several sizes: # RRRF1 for a 32 inch # RRRF2 for a 38 inch # RRRF3 for a 44 inch # RRRF4 for a 50 inch Thule does not offer a fairing for the AeroBlade bars because they say they are quiet enough and aerodynamic enough to do without one.

  • Roof Rack Fairing that Will Fit Factory Subaru Roof Rack Crossbars
    Replacement clip # 8537361 is the same as what comes on the newer XT Thule windscreens and it does not fit the older model fairings so either way it would not work with the Subaru factory bars. You will need a more universal fairing. Rhino-Rack has several options depending on the length you need: # RRRF1 is 32 inches long # RRRF2 is 38 inches long # RRRF3 is 44 inches long # RRRF4 is 50 inches long

  • Fairing that Can Fit 2021 Subaru Crosstrek Factory Crossbars
    I have a fairing solution for your 2021 Subaru Crosstrek with factory crossbars but there isn't a way to adapt a Thule fairing that was designed for a square bar. Instead we have Yakima fairings which can fit all crossbar sizes/shapes so that would be the way to go. You'd need to measure the distance between the raised rails of your roof and go with a fairing that fits between them the best. For a 46 inch fairing you'd need part # Y05018, for 40 inch you'd want the part # Y05017, for 34...

  • Fairing Needed for Thule AeroBlade Crossbars
    We do have fairings that are compatible with Thule roof rack systems like your AeroBlade crossbars. They come in the following lengths: 32" - part # TH62WV 38" - part # TH72WV 44" - part # TH82WV Since you already bought a fairing you can try using the Replacement Load Bar Clip # 8537361 for Thule crossbars, but there is no guarantee that it is compatible with a different fairing. Aero style crossbars still have some wind noise, but they are not nearly as noisy as the traditional round...
