Is there a difference between Q99 clips...
Is there a difference between Q99 clips and Q99-E clips? My car takes Q99-E but they don't seem to be available anywhere.
There is no difference between those clips other than name. The Q-99 should work just fine for your "non-raingutter" vehicle just fine and enable you to attach towers and bars.

Just got these for the Civic, they fit great and are just what I needed! The doors open and close fine when they're on. If you order one of these, you are getting a pair (meaning 2), so if you want a set-up for your card, you'll need to order two pairs (to get 4 clips).
One PAIR of Q-clips
First things first, don't make the stupid mistake I did if you are collecting parts for a full new rack installation: This item is just ONE PAIR of clips; a full rack setup requires TWO PAIRS! Failing to realize this will significantly delay your installation process...
Once installed, they are working great. I have a car with frameless windows, so it looks alarmingly like the windows and Q-clips will collide when opening/closing the doors, but the clearance is perfect when the clips are properly installed.
Old rack New Car

I got these to put my old rack on my new car. They work great, no problems.

I bought this rack as a gift but have seen the final installation and it appears as though it's working just fine and looks great!
Great Clips :)

Got these to attach to the Q towers and they fit great! I'd also recommend getting the Yakima Lock Cores for your rack.
Towers appear well built and designed. Make sure to order specific clips for your particular vehicle. As Chad stated, check out the Yakima website. Also, order a package of SKS lock cores for each block. Order more than you need as you will add accessories later and will want the same key for all.
Just the clips i needed for transfering my Yakima rack between cars.
Needed With Q Towers
If you have purchased a set of Q Towers be sure to also pick up a set of Q clips. You can go to Yakima's website to find the proper clip size for your vehicle. These work perfectly.
Using Q106 clips on my '00 Maxima. Fit just fine, though concerned about possible door seal compression/tearing over time. Believe these are the best solution on the market, just aren't perfect. Happy to have them though, they do the job quite well.
Whole setup on a mazdaspeed6
These are the correct clips for the Mazdaspeed6, even though they are not listed on the setup guide.
Does anybody know if these will fit a 2008...
Does anybody know if these will fit a 2008 volvo c-30. I have no doubt that I can get a front rack mounted in the front doors, but the rear rack is my main question. Volvo has a groove already built into the car, at the top of the rear window (no door) but I am afraid that it will only work with volvo manufactured racks.
yakima's website provides a fitting tool for every car. check it out before purchasing!

I was told I needed Q78 Q clips. Is that what these are?
They are. However, you need to select the Q78 on the drop down menu as you order. As you can see there are several different clips depending on the car you drive. These fit into the door jam of your car when mated with Yakima's Q-Tower. Remember you need to get a total of four clips, or X2 sets of clips. Refer to yakima.com for any questions.
I accidentaly bought the wrong clips for...
I accidentaly bought the wrong clips for my 2007 Corolla. I bought the 48' cross bars with a pair of Q 19 clips. Do I just need to by the Q 31 clips for the back and the Q 91 clips for the front or do I need to buy a new rack system? Are the towers included ok to keep as well? and are the locks universal for all the roof rack systems or is each one different depending on the Q clips? Thank you
My results said you need a set of Q99-E clips in the front, Q31-A clips in the back, 48" cross bars and a 44' fairing if you choose to use one, and of course the towers. Again, this for was a naked roof 2007 Corolla 4 door. Locks are universal, it is recommended to buy a lager quantity then you think you need because if you buy additional ones later, you will have to tote more keys around with you.

I have an old yakima rack w round bars that I'm trying to fit onto my 05 Prius and simply need to know what clamps or footings I need to get. Can anyone help?
You will need Q5-A front clips and Q124-F rear clips.

I was given a complete rack from a infinity F35.my car 99 Acura RL
is the Q73 clips all I need to mount the rack.
You will need the (4) Q73 clips, (4) Q Towers, (2) crossbars and if you choose (1) 44" fairing.
Your cars both should use the Q towers and you are right on the q clips #73 that are recommmended for your vehicle. You can load up to 125 pounds on your vehicle and use all the great gear carrying options that yakima offers. Have a great Summer and Take It Easy on your Yakima Rack
Yakima Rack and Raptor Bike Mount
The ordering process was very easy and straight forward. I ordered thru Amazon, compared prices, and found backcountry.com to be the lowest for the Yakima items that I was looking for. No taxes and free shipping!!! The items came in approximately one week and were packaged securely. Instructions were simple! I have had the rack for about a month and love it. No more worries about my bike if I drop by the store and go in....I'm thinking about purchasing the faring since I hear a little road noise as I increase speed. It's worse when the moon roof is open. Anyway, I am very pleased with the purchase and Backcounty.

I own a '00 Honda Prelude. Q85 clips have been discontinued for some time now, yet my quest for a decent rack continues..
My question are..
1. Do you know where I might be able to find Q85 clips?
2. Is there another clip I could use in place on Q85?
Well Ryan, if they are no longer sold retail then your best bet is somewhere like Ebay or even used somewhere like Craigslist. You may also try contacting Yakima and asking them if a different clip would work.

I am looking for Q Clips Q99. Do you guys sell it?
Hey Mike, I found that the Q99's are rather hard to come by. The best thing I found was to just keep checking until they are back in stock.

where can I find yakima Q5 clips? they seem to be the only ones not available on this site.
Kyle, most likely they are just out of stock and you should keep checking back to see if they are available.
I am also looking. Still don't have them. What's up with that. I've got an Audi A4. You'd think it was a popular car for a roof rack. Stock BC!!
