WRX Yakima Roof Rack Review

everyone how’s it going today I wanted
to show you something that I’ll be
putting on the top of the WRX here and
it’s gonna help me be able to look some
things around that doesn’t normally just
fit inside so what it is is the akima
bike rack so it has a front about this
someone to our car clip for a decent
price here but has the fairing on the
front rails and then for the WRX the
15th through the 17 it actually just has
a clip style so let me show you here
basically just lift the latch up and
then push down and as you push down it
slowly starts to secure so I’m going to
show you different steps and just my
thoughts and ideas on how to install it
as well as once it is installed and once
the rails are on here I’m also kind of
test fit to make sure everything’s good
have a rack for my bike again just try
it out see what it looks like and see
how it works in the future if this all
turns out really well I’ll be buying
probably an actual snowboard rack or
maybe some other just kind of odds and
ends stuff to throw on and be able to
actually have the car a little bit more
usable for taking stuff around or
picking up things that don’t fit inside
of it well I guess we’ll get to it for
anyone that’s buying this product new
you’re gonna probably see how pretty
simple just to slide it on my little bit
different since its use it’s already
kind of put together but with this piece
here it actually comes up and as it
comes up here you can see there’s a bolt
that’s going right through and that’s
what actually tighten tightens it down
so I’m actually working in Reverse
loosening this bolt that way I have free
play up and down this rod here and I can
figure out what’s going to be the best
best positioning for it so
is basically undoing this one I’m gonna
set it up on the car and figure out
where I want it right now I just have
the bar sitting with these parts loose
what you want to do is slowly position
it to where it’s just kind of right on
the edge of the top here and it may take
a little bit of a fitment and I guess
I’m adjusting to make sure it’s perfect
but I’m gonna just kind of set it on
each side and then measure the bar on
each side here and maybe the one in
between and I’ll give you a good
distance and measurements to make sure
that it’s straight as well as just kind
of a once you think you have a secure
fitting you basically just take these
here and you’ll screw it in right there
to this hole and tighten it down so you
want to make sure that it’s loose
starting off but then you want to make
sure that it’s firmly secured against
this nut here to have a habit tighten
down all the way
that’s right now I believe I have a
pretty good fitment like I was saying
you want it just kind of on the edge I
need to push it over a little bit more
to where it’s right up here on the lip
of the door but right here I measured
seven inches and right there seven
inches and just one of the line this
part directly up with that so it can
actually go a little bit more over to
line up I measured right here on both
sides and it was just barely over five
and a half inches on both so I know that
the bar is pretty centered because I
think it’ll look silly if you had like
one end sticking out further than the
other side so five and a half inches
here I’m going to put the clips in and
see if I can get it tightened down well
there’s just part of playing with it I’m
gonna put some tape around here that way
is I’m moving ingesting I’m not
scratching the paint as well as it may
be a good idea to buy some clear later
and put it
on underneath there where it’s not
noticeable until well it’s not
noticeable and it’s gonna protect your
paint in the future every time you put
that clamp on there they do come with a
little bit of a coating on it but the
coating isn’t the best all right so I
got it installed like I said about a
five and a half inches here is really
good and then seven inches back you can
see the lip may not be like the best on
securing but I’ll get to it here in a
second whenever you tighten these down
it actually you can tighten it down all
the way to begin with but then you can
slowly just kind of loosen it to create
pressure and you can play and just do
what you feel comfortable with whether
you want this kind of extended back more
so you have this down all the way to
secure it but –mine the bolts holding
this part in or not all the way
positioned at the very end there’s a
little bit of thread and you just kind
of loosen it and then just play with the
tension until you get the tension that
you feel comfortable with so what I was
getting at here is it may not be the
most secure but look and grab on this
thing
in like just shake the car like just
really pull on it it’s not going
anywhere
it’s really secure which I was really
bummed that I don’t have the actual clip
in piece but this thing is super sturdy
and I mean if I could like I could just
push on this and push the car if I
wanted to what I did do is wrap this
part let me show you here I wrapped
right here with electrical tape is 3/4
inch
I’m just wrapped it about four times
over that way it created a kind of
barrier against this is a metal clip
here the ones that come with just fit on
the inside but I wanted protection right
there as well on the outside for if
anything starts rubbing here and nobody
close the door you can see it pushes a
little bit down but that’s something I
just have to live with so as of right
now I’m just going to play with this
Ferenc piece and get that on
as well as it does come with I guess
little pieces to secure it if it bumps
the car I am missing one here so I’m
going to have to come up with something
to stick there probably just a little
bit of 3m tape or may wrap that part in
electrical tape too
I’ll probably be what I do here but
we’ll stick this on and get it adjusted
and I’ll show you what it looks like
with the fairing on I finally got the
roof rack all done here basically the
back
I measured from right here to right here
that’s 31 inches and then with these
this cap here is actually six-and-a-half
so five and a half in the front and I
guess the body kind of Slim’s down so
it’s six-and-a-half here in the back
with the roof rack it’s just got some
secures underneath it holds really well
which I’m really surprised at how tight
everything holds together and just a tip
like whenever you’re if your rack
secured underneath you can just roll up
your window actually sending your car
and screw everything on here so realize
I could just open this fire up and since
it actually drops and goes in I don’t
have to worry about any type of
clearance issues so I’m gonna pull my
car out now and show you what it looks
like with the bike attached before I do
that I do want to show you this one I
got here actually lifts up so I have
three different mounting points so I
wanted to get the most secure thing and
show you what it looks like here in a
second
