How do I stop my roof rack from whistling?

Recommended Posts

Hi Friends,

Two days back, i had installed roof rack on my FJ. After installation and crossing speed above 80 km, annoying aeolian noise started. This is discouraging to go for long drive and disturbance for co-passengers as well.

I need your expert advise or solution to get rid from this noise. 

Thanks in advance for your time and suggestions!!

You can put a cover or atlernative if you install some wind deflectors that would help

Thanks @Srikumar for your suggestion. I appreciate, if you can refer or recommend any car accessory shop or garage who can fix it!!

Ah Ok then get ready for more noise, drag, fuel consumption and a tipsy-er car with a higher COG

@Chirag S. I had installed a TRD light weight roof rack on my FJ2 which did not increase the noise heavily, The noise was always there from the front windshield and the side mirrors on the FJ cruisers when you speed on the highways.

So the reason maybe they gave a powerful JBL entertainment system, :P !!
