Wind noise ain't pretty; turn it down.
The Thule Fairing cuts down on the drag and wind noise that your Thule bars make when you're blasting down the highway on your way to parts unknown with a roof full of gear. Thule Fairings are cake to install, and use rubber bumpers and anti-scuff film to protect your vehicle's finish. Editors Note: Please call if you aren't certain what parts you need to install your rack.

You might want to check the spacing between the towers you currently have but I bet you will probably need the 44 inch Fairing.

What would be the best size for a 2009 VW Tiguan? Also, are you aware of there being any problems with this product and the flap that pops up when the moonroof is opened?
Hey Zane Doe,
Thanks for your question.
For your 2009 VW Tiguan I would suggest the 44" size in these fairings. They should not be in the way of the moonroof so adjusting that up and out should not affect them.
I hope this helps you out.

I have a 2008 Suzuki Grand Vitara with factory crossbars that are OVAL. Is there a fairing that will fit these bars? I am trying to minimize wind noise from the ski rack.
This Thule fairing will fit on your Suzuki and while you can choose the 38" or 44", I would bank on the 38" for best fit.

I own a 4dr 2012 altima, what size fairing would be the best fit?
Same thing here. You can fit either the 38" or 44" but the recommended length for this car from other reviews I have read is the 38".
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
This is awesome at making your rack more quiet. Very easy to install. Looks awesome. I doubt it does much for your MPG.
Works great, cuts down on wind noise
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I got the 38" one for my 06' Impreza (per Thule's recommendation/configuration tool). It's a little short on both ends and leaves about a 1-2" gap on the driver/passenger side but it has no bearing on it's effectiveness. I just thought it would reach to the ends so it's flush with the crossbar mounts. That said, it works perfectly and cuts down on the wind noise from the crossbars. Assembly and installation was fairly easy, but it does feel kinda flimsy overall. Nevertheless, once it's installed you don't need to ever touch it and it really reduces/eliminates wind noise.
I bought a whole Thule system from BackCountry.com except for the lock cores that I bought from our local RackWarehouse.com. My '06 Subaru Forester looks like ... well, a SUBARU!
I purchased the 44in fairing for my 08 Ody, but it was too big to install on the factory roof rack. Got the 38 and it works fine.

MOAB Fairing flimsy
I bought the Moab basket and while I am happy with the basket itself, I find the fairing to be flimsy and perhaps counterproductive as at highway speed it bends back with the pressure, possibly creating MORE drag. Anybody have the same problem and can you replace the fairing with one that is more substantial??
Is there any way to lock it to the bars?
Is there any way to lock it to the bars?
Nope. But it is attached with nuts and bolts, so it would be pretty hard to remove without a lot of time. Hope this helps.
44 inch Thule fairing for 2012 Honda Odessey
Have a 2012 Honda Odessey. Thule site recommended 38 inch fairing but when I got it it was 10 inches too narrow. Got the 44 inch that was perfect. It is absolutely amazing the difference in the lack of wind noise with the fairing. Before I couldn't stand to leave the racks on if not being used, now they never come off. Thanks Backcountry for the ease in swapping the racks and great service.
2002 subaru impreza w/ fartory roof rack
I love the look of the Thule Fairing on vehicles, however unfortunately the fairing clamps do not fit my cross bars. I spoke on the phone directly to Thule customer support at an authorized Thule dealer and if the clamps don't fit the crossbar you can't attach the fairing w/o getto rigging yourself from the hardware store. I was really hoping they made universal clamps or clamps specific to my crossbar. :-(
