This bike carrier does not fit all vehicles. Please visit the Yakima Fit Guide to check suitability for your vehicle.
Please read the below before deciding on this style of rack:
This style of carrier is used in the case of someone not wanting to go the expense of roof racks or a towball. They’re generally a cheaper option but do have drawbacks. They’re not a universal fit and your car will need to be on the approved list. Generally if you have a spoiler above the rear window there won’t be a fit. Bear in mind these style of carriers are clamping directly onto the bodywork and hence have a real chance of marking or scuffing the paint work with use. We wouldn’t be recommending you use them on your brand new 5 series BMW but probably OK on the 10 year old Forester. Basically, the more fussy you are about your car, the less likely we would be to recommend this style. These carriers are also definitely not recommended for high end bikes as there is the chance of the bikes rubbing against each other and causing paint or frame damage. They’ll also most likely cover your number plate and tail lights so once again you’ll need to get an auxiliary number plate and affix to the outside preferably whilst using the Thule LightBoard.
