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.

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

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

Ask the Experts about this Yakima Accessories and Parts

  • What Size Fairing Should Be Used Based On Roof Rack Cross Bar Length?
    I recommend using the Rhino-Rack Fairing for Roof Racks - 44" Long # RRRF3 or the Yakima WindShield Fairing for Roof Racks - 46" Long # Y05018. When looking for a fairing, you want to cover as much of the bar as possible while able to attach within the feet/towers of your roof rack. The more air that you can direct over the bar, the less wind noise, so the widest you can get and not create more noise by going past your vehicle the better.

  • Availability of Different Length Yakima Fairings
    We do have the Yakima fairings you are looking for. For a 46 inch fairing you'd need part # Y05018, for 40 inch you'd want the part # Y05017, for 34 inch part # Y05016, and for 52 inch part # Y05019. 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. The great thing about the Yakima fairings though is that

  • 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 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.

  • What Roof Rack Fairing Fits on Thule Wingbar Evo Crossbars
    While we have a fairing solution that fits the Thule Wingbars the Thule fairings do not fit since the bar dimensions are slightly different. Instead you'd want a Yakima fairing as they use a strap design for attachment that allows the fairing to fit all bar styles. So for a 40 inch fairing we have part # Y05017, 46 inch part # Y05018, 52 inch # Y05019, and 34 inch part # Y05016. You want to go with a fairing that best fits the distance between the feet of the rack you have for best...

  • 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 to Quiet Noise on 2020 Jeep Wrangler with OEM Crossbars
    Roof rack wind noise can be very annoying! Thankfully Yakima has made their fairings to fit basically all crossbar sizes and styles due to their zip strap attachment method. So the Yakima fairing part # Y05018 would kill the noise you described and would easily fit and work great!. I attached a review video for it for you to check out as well.

  • Roof Rack and Fairing Recommendations for a 2012 BMW 1 Series

This rack does attach to the fixed mounting points. If you want aero bars then you can use Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero Crossbars - Aluminum - Black - 46" Long - Qty 2 # RRVA118B-2 with Rhino-Rack 2500 Series Legs # RRRLKVA, and custom fit kit # DK328. For a fairing for either of these racks you can use Rhino-Rack...

  • Will Yakima LoadStops Work With SeaSucker Monkey Bars and Wind Fairing for SeaSucker
    The Yakima LoadStop Brackets for Yakima Roof Rack Crossbars # Y05000 are designed to work with the 1-1/8" diameter Yakima round bars like part # Y00408 and the SeaSucker Monkey Bars Roof Rack - 48" Long # 298-SX6000 are 1-1/4" diameter so they aren't going to be a good fit. Due to the way the brackets attach you may be able to physically get them around the SeaSucker bars but being able to tightly secure them will be an issue. In regards to a wind fairing, there are fairings that will...

  • Rhino Rack Crossbars Whistling Solution Recommendation
    Typically whistling with a roof rack like an aero bar Rhino Rack is due to a channel not being installed on the top or bottom of the bar. Check to make sure the channels are installed in the bars first. If not a fairing will easily take care of the problem since it directs the air over the bars. The Yakima fairing part # Y05018 fits all bar shapes like yours and would work well.

  • 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

  • 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 for 2018 Subaru Crosstrek
    The great thing about the Yakima roof fairings is that there are several lengths available and they mounting hardware allows it to fit all crossbar dimensions. 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.

  • 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).

  • Recommended Roof Rack For 2015 Nissan Altima With A Sunroof
    We do have a roof rack that's designed to fit your 2015 Altima and also work with your sunroof. I recommend the Yakima Jetstream roof rack. This rack is extremely quiet because it uses aerodynamic crossbars. The crossbars are 50 inches long and constructed of lightweight aluminum and have a black powder-coat finish. It is recommended not to open the sunroof when the roof rack is installed due to interference. To order this roof rack you will need part # Y00425, part # Y00146, part...

    The Rola GTX Roof Rack part # 59726 that you referenced is a confirmed fit for your 2012 Hyundai Veloster that has the glass roof, but it will not allow the glass roof to open when the rack is installed. This kit includes the needed fit kit and comes with everything needed to install. Rola doesn't offer a fairing that will fit but Yakima has the part # Y05018 which would be the right size at 46 inches and will basically fit all crossbar dimensions like yours.

    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.

For a 40 inch long fairing we have the part # Y05017 or for a 46 inch part # Y05018.

This fairing is only a fit for Thule AeroBlade, AeroBlade Edge, and SquareBar crossbars, which aren't 2-3/8" wide. So while I know it's not the solution you were looking for, the only real solution is to use a different fairing with a more universal fit. I recommend the Yakima WindShield Fairing for Roof...

Roof racks and their accessories can cause quite a bit of wind noise and the best way to fight it is with a fairing to direct the air over it.
