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 52 inches long part number Y05019, and 46 inches long, part number Y05018, at 34 inches long, part number Y05016. We'll be working with the 40 inch long one, and that's part number Y05017. This universal fairing deflects wind around your roof rack to drastically reduce noise and drag. It's 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 for 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 jet stream crossbar, but this will work with your round, square, arrow, elliptical and most factory refrac systems. Let's go ahead and set it in place.

We want to make sure the notch portion sits in our crossbar like this, and then we can go ahead and center it up. Looks like we 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, and 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's going to complete our look at the Yakima windshield fairing, part number Y05017..

Have a custom roof rack with 1-1/8” round cross bars. The Yakima fairing fits great! Virtually eliminated the wind noise. Quality product and worth the money. Great customer service. Order was shipped promptly.


Ive had a roof rack for years now...why did I wait until now to get this fairing? Shipping was fast and installation was easy as 1-2-3 and took maybe 10 minutes. Visually pleasing and the noise inside at speed has been cut by at least 80%!!


Information on the product 100% Guys I etrailer we’re very helpful, And firing fit perfect on my 95 corolla, , very Happy! Thanks Guys!!!! Best upgrade so far!


Works great with my Whispbar S15 racks. shipped it fast and I am a very happy customer. Thank you for everything.


Significantly reduces whistling and looks awesome with the Porsche roof rack. Easy to install. Great price and fast delivery.


Love it looks very nice and is very easy to mount i would recommend



Is been a year and I haven’t have a problem with it it look like I just put it in yesterday very good product


Great! Easy to install!


Yakima 40" fairing for a 2010 Toyota Prius. Fit is not as good as the earlier fairings, there is a substantial amount of space between the fairing itself and my round bar. The including mounting is not very secure from would-be thieves, as it would only take a knife to cut through the four straps that encircle the bar with yakima-produced zip ties. At [a high price], this should have better secure mounting. No "whistling" noticed yet at highway speeds, and seems to do the job to streamline my rack.


Arrived earlier than expected. Instructions could have been a bit more clear regarding installation, but easy enough. The frustration came when I actually installed the car-top carrier. This product makes the installation of a Yakima car-top carrier significantly more difficult - which is odd since they are the same brand and you would think they would be more compatible. It worked and noise issues were kept to a minimum during our drive, but during installation of the car-top carrier I was concerned the WindShield would crack/break (thankfully it didn't).


This fairing made a huge difference with wind noise!


Doesnt fit f150 roof cause of the ridges in the roof


Does a good job of reducing the whistle from the roof rack I had installed. No maintenance issues after a year (and many trips through the car wash), and it still looks good. Read the instructions carefully to be sure you've got it properly attached with the right amount of snugness.


The Yakima wind fairing fit our sons 2008 honda civic perfectly and cuts the wind noise 100%! He loves the way it looks and and enjoys driving his car so much more now.


Product took the air noise away completely. E Trailer was extremely prompt in processing and shipping my order. This is the second item I have purchased from them and I would give them rave reviews. Their customer service was tops also when I had questions.


Easy purchase. Arrived on-time. Easy to install. Looks great. I would prefer slightly larger clear strips for the roof of the car, just to allow a little greater room for error, but this is a minor suggestion.


This fairing didn't work for my 2020 RAV4 XSE Hybrid with the Panoramic Sunroof. Sold it.


Yakima fairings fit well and last a
long time.


Put the 40” on my 2019 Toyota 4Runner and it cut the noise by at least 90%. It was almost unbearable before I installed this. Would highly recommend


Excellent service, great quality product, and arrived exactly on time! Love etrailer!! Have another order to place!! Thank you!


This company deserves a 5-star review. They were very responsive & communicated every step of the way. The fairing I purchased was exactly what I needed & came with clear instructions.


Missing the plactic the clear pads.Thats the only one missing.The product is really good but i just dont like when something is missing with my order.


It's a very good product. It cuts the wind noise almost 100%. Thank you, Mauricio.


Easy to assemble, sturdy and really helps dampen the air flow around your front bar, thus almost eliminating the noise. Great product, solid customer service from


Effective in drastically reducing wind noise


Easy to install and really keeps the wind noise to a bare minimum

  • Will the Yakima WindShield Fairing Fit the Factory Roof Rack of a 2012 Toyota FJ Cruiser
    The Yakima WindShield Fairing, part # Y05017, is designed to fit a variety of roof racks, including factory racks. The 2012 Toyota FJ Cruiser OEM roof rack definitely has a unique system, but the front bar is all that matters for the WindShield. The front bar looks to be an aero-style bar, so the straps of the WindShield will work just fine. In fact, the installation video of this deflector features a roof rack with aero-style bars, so the installation will be the same. I've linked to...

    I have a solution for you. However, the clear acrylic pads are not available. Yakima does offer # Y8870045 Replacement Foot Pads. This part will work as a replacement for the foot pads on all models of Yakima fairings. The pads attach to the faring's feet to protect your vehicle's paint.

  • Cargo Organizer Recommendation for 2018 Mazda CX-5
    We have the Hopkins Trunk Organizer # HM74113 which would work well in your 2018 Mazda CX-5 but you'd first want to measure to be totally sure. The carrier adjusts between 37" and 43" long by 16-3/4 inches wide by 10 inches tall.

  • Fairing that Can Fit Factory Crossbars of 2020 Mazda 3
    The Yakima fairings have a unique hardware design that allows them to fit basically all crossbar designs. So what you'll want to do is measure the distance between the feet and go with the Yakima fairing that fits the best between them. For a 34 inch fairing you'd want # Y05016 For a 40 inch fairing you'd want # Y05017 For a 46 inch fairing you'd want # Y05018

  • 2014 Jetta Sportwagen Factory Rack Fit With Thule Airscreen
    The Thule AirScreen XT, part # TH72WV, was designed to fit all racks, even factory racks, and this is the size that would fit your vehicle. Unfortunately Thule has yet to release an updated fit guide, that shows if the Thule AirScreen will fit your 2014 Volkswagen Jetta's factory bars. Thule said it should work but they cannot guarantee that it would fit. However, Yakima WindShield Fairing for Roof Racks - 40" Long, part # Y05017, will work for your vehicle. I have included a link below.

  • Which Wind Fairing Will Work For Crossbars On 2013 Volvo XC70?
    Fairings, such as the Yakima WindShield Fairing 40" # Y05017 that you were looking at, are designed to be used with crossbars running left to right across the vehicle's roof. If your 2013 Volvo XC70 has factory roof rack with crossbars then this 40" version may be cutting it close and could be too large for the crossbars. One way to check is by measuring the front crossbar to determine if it is at last 40" long; if so then it will work. If the crossbar isn't quite 40" long, which I don't...

  • Picking Out Yakima Fairing for 2014 Volkswagen Tiguan
    Measure the distance between the feet or raised rails on the roof of your 2016 Volkswagen Tiguan and pick out the Yakima fairing that falls right under that dimension in overall length. We have the part # Y05018 which measures 46 inches long, the part # Y05017 which is 40 inches, # Y05019 which is 52 and # Y05016 which is 34 inches. The great thing about Yakima fairings is that unlike other fairings their hardware can fit all crossbar shapes.

  • 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...

  • Solution that Prevents Wind Noise from Roof Rack and Roof Carriers
    Roof accessories can cause vibration and wind noise like what you mentioned but a fairing will help as it will direct the wind over the rack which allows it to stop. You'd want to go with the fairing that best fits the distance between the feet of your rack which we have the part # Y05018 which is 46 inches long, # Y05017 which is 40 inches, part # Y05019 which is 52 inches, and part # Y05016 which is 34 inches. The great thing about Yakima fairings is that they fit all crossbar sizes...

  • Determining Correct Length Windshield Fairing For Luggage Rack On 2012 Audi Q5
    We do have a wide range of wind fairings, but to determine the correct one for your 2012 Audi Q5 you will need to measure between the feet or base of the crossbars and once you have that measurement you will be able to choose the correct fairing for your vehicle. The available size Yakima Windshield fairings are as follows: 34" # Y05016 40" # Y05017 46" # Y05018 50" # Y05019 I included a video of the Yakima Windshield Faring for you to take a look at.

    The Thule Motion XT Rooftop Cargo Box - 18 cu ft - Titan Glossy # TH629807 should fit your 2020 Ford Expedition, but there are a few measurements you should take to verify. This cargo box fits roof racks that have a crossbar spread between 23-5/8" and 36-7/8" with crossbars that measure no more than 3-1/2" wide and no taller than 1-11/16". Crossbar spread is the distance from the center of one crossbar to the center of the next crossbar. Now, in order to open your rear hatch you will need...

  • Can Older Style Thule Wind Fairing Be Retro-Fitted with Newer Mounting Hardware for Aero Crossbars
    Your older Thule Fairing TH872XT has an outdated mounting system which we have a replacement for as part # 8537361, but this is the same as the older mounting system so it unfortunately won't be compatible with your Yakima JetStream crossbars. Since this is the case you'll need a new fairing that's designed to fit the aero-style crossbars. For an upgrade directly from Thule we have the 44" AirScreen XT # TH82WV which uses the newest style of mounting brackets, or we also have some Yakima...

    Since the bars on the Rhino Rack ROC25 # RR65QR are 37-3/8" long, you'll want to use the Rhino-Rack Fairing for Roof Racks - 38" Long # RRRF2, which will sit right about even with the outside of the legs and provide you with full coverage of your crossbars. This is going to do a great job of reducing the wind noise and is exactly what you're looking for.

    For your 2019 Mini Clubman the OEM roof rack you will just want to go slightly smaller than the 42 inches you referenced for your fairing. I recommend the Yakima WindShield Fairing for Roof Racks - 40" Long # Y05017 which will work great with your crossbars. This fairing has a universal fit where other brands don't always fit OEM racks.
