Video Transcript for Yakima HoldUp Bike Carriers Rear Wheel Assembly Replacement Review

A lot of things can happen on the road, whether you just back into something or someone maybe just clips you in the parking garage. Well, if you have the Yakima holdup bike rack, we have a lot of different replacement parts, but today we're going to be taking a look at the rear wheel assembly. Whenever you first assembled this bike rack, you probably noticed that it's extremely easy to put together and replacing the parts are going to be just as easy. So let's go over that installation process with you now.All we need to do to remove the part is going to be four little bolts here, and you can either have it down, have it up. I'm just going to do it like this, just because I think it's going to be a little bit easier. Go ahead and grab your allen key and I suggest doing the top ones first.

Once we get these out, you can go ahead and do whatever you want with them, the replacement part does come with the hardware.Once it's done, all you got to do is pull it up and we're ready to replace it. Now we can go ahead and take our replacement part, it's nice and shiny. We can go ahead and remove our hardware. It's going to be the same exact hardware that we removed on our old piece. So use the same exact allen key to get them undone.

We want to make sure that we put this in the right direction, so all you have to do is really look at one of them and we're going to do the exact opposite of that.So we have our wheel cradle over here and we're going to go ahead and put this week cradle on the other side, face it like this, and then you go can ahead, hold it into place like before. I do suggest starting with the top ones. Just thread that in by hand real quick.And then we can go ahead and tighten them all down evenly, going back and forth between the two. And we are going to have these oblong holes here so we can go ahead and move it however we see fit. It all just depends on what you guys think is best for your bikes.

And once everything is nice and tight, always just double-check all of the bolts. Make sure that they didn't loosen up as you started tightening everything else down.Once that's good, then we are done. And that's going to do it for the replacement rear wheel assembly on the Yakima holdup bike rack..

Replacement Rear Wheel Assembly for Yakima HoldUp Bike Carriers - 8890281

Average Customer Rating:  4.9 out of 5 stars   (22 Customer Reviews)


I backed my bike rack into a wall on a Thursday. I ordered this part from etrailer on Monday. It arrived on Wednesday. Installed this part on Saturday! What could be easier than that!? I have ordered from etrailer before and it's like a no-brainer. The items are just as described, fair price, come quickly. I'll continue to use etrailer in the future. As for the Yakima part, this is the best bike rack I've ever used and not the first one I've tried to destroy! I highly recommend the HoldUp carrier and this part just bolted right on.

The replacement parts for the rack worked perfectly and I have spent the last year trying my best to wear them out!
John - 11/19/2018


You're already here because you know etrailer is great. Just like every other purchase, this one was smooth. The price was fair (can't find it cheaper anywhere) and shipping (free) was fast.
If only the Yakima arms could be repaired instead of replaced since it's just a single bolt inside the ratchet that fails. That said, it did last ten years. I had fabricated a temporary fix, but decided to treat myself to an early holiday gift with this replacement.
Don't forget that you can use your old lock by using the blank key to remove it from the old rack. Super easy and allows you to retain the single key use.


I’m very happy that replacement parts are available to repair my Yakima hitch rack. I am pleased with both the price and availability to get what I needed... thank you!


Perfect replacement part for my Yakima bike rack. I was horrified when I damaged my Yakima bike rack that was on my car while taking my wife’s car out of the garage. I know what a goof. Luckily had the entire rear assembly, four bolts and it’s good as new. I use this rack 3 or 4 times a week so I had to have it right. For 1/3 the cost of a new rack I’m back up and running. Thanks!

No problems

Shipping was timely and tracking was is, also the ordering process was smooth.


The purchase and deliver was fast and efficient. The website is very easy to navigate also! After I received my purchase, I got an email on instructions and tips for how to put everything together, super helpful! Thanks guys!


Exactly the replacement part I needed. Arrived quickly in brand new condition.


Works great!


Package was damaged, but fortunately the part was still in good condition. Everything delivered on time and as promised - great job. Easy to install even with no instructions.


One arm of my Yakima Hitch mount rack was damaged when a truck backed in the rear of my vehicle. I ordered the replacement arm which etrailer was the only only retailer to have in stock. Shipping was quick and I was back with bikes on the rack in a mattter of days. etrailer is my goto when ordering receivers and hitch mount accessories for our two vehicles.

by: is awesome! Such a great selection of parts even for older model bike racks. This bike tray was exactly what I needed and included all the parts necessary for install. Shipping was super fast and the product arrived in great condition. I'll definitely be coming back here for any other parts I need.


Right part, available, fast


The Yakama Bike Rack has worked well without any difficulties. So much easier to use than my other racks I had invest in.


This was a replacement part for the HoldUp 2. It works very well with all sorts of different style of bikes. Etrailer did and excellent job of shipping the part fast and they were fantastic with their communication from order status through shipping.


Product looks great, came in solid shipping container. Thanks etrailer!


I received my part a day earlier than expected??. The part was exactly what I needed. Hally reached out to Yakima for me to get the correct part number and called to back to confirm the description. Her customer service was excellent!


The product I ordered was exactly what I needed. The product was out of stock, so it took an extra two months to get it, but when it did come, it met all of my expectations.


Product arrived quickly, was exactly as described and was a very good price.


item arrived as expected and was exactly what I needed!


My rack was damaged and the new component fit like a charm.
