make sure the windows are alll the way up. I have manual windows, and sometimes they seem up.. but really have a bit of room left to move. If they are powered, they might be off track a little bit, the dealer can adjust those.
I have the same noise problem but just my drivers side. I have checked the manual windows many times...they are all the way up. No idea why the noise but it makes driving on the highway extremely annoying...and I do that pretty frequently for 2 hours at a time. Any suggestions would be great!
I do, but only if the sunroof is tilted. Is your car a turbo? If so, the spoiler deploying could also be factored in. It doesn't bother me, because I always have my stereo on. I guess I just never noticed.
I do, however, recall checking to see if my windows were all the way up, which they were. Oh well.....Now it's gonna bother me......... :crazy:
No turbo here...its definately from the drivers side door up at the top corner...if you pull the door in while you drive, the noise stops and if you hold your hand up to where the noise is coming from you can feel air coming in. So is the problem with my car anyway...
We test drove a used 2001 and it had noticeable and annoying wind noise on the pass. side. We ended up buying a 2006 from a dealer in another town and it has even more noise -- both sides.
I intend to try to stop up the leaks one of these days when it warms up, but in the meantime I'll try the window trick. Reminds me of my '64 bug. You could barely close the doors without opening the windows slightly.
Skoobahead, did adjusting the latches or strikers help? My 03 GL Turbo has pretty bad wind noise at the rear upper corners and it's definitely due to poor sealing. I'm almost at 50K miles so I'm thinking of taking it back to the dealer to see if they can do anything. I realy don't want to have to open the window every time I close the door. That's just ridiculous. I've thought of adding some extra sealing at the corners with self-adhesive rubber or some other kind of stick on seal but I haven't tried it yet.
