    Default Wind noise from drivers side doors/ windows.

    I currently have this noise and can't seem to pin point where it's coming from as you can only hear it when driving and the mrs says she can't hear it from the passengers seat. It sounds as if theres a door or window not properly shut to me. Also when i was the car when i spray the hose over the rear window there's a tiny amount of water gets in the top corner nearest the rear end of the car.
    Has anyone else had this problem if so whats the cure?

    No it's either coming from the drivers door window the drivers side rear passenger window. It sounds as if the window isn't closed properly.

    Funny you should mention this as i've also noticed lately that mine also has a noise as if the drivers door or window aren't shut tight.. probably gonna drive me nuts when i drive to Spain, might take it to the dealers to get it looked at before i go..

    I remember Duncan saying something similar after he had his windows tinted - the problem was that the glass wasn't sitting exactly square on the guide rails that raise and lower it.
