    Default Noise - sounds like a window open!

    Hi, has anyone experienced undue noise from outside the car that sounds like a window could be blightly open? It's worse on wet days from passing traffic. I've checked the window/door seals for anything obvious and looked for missing grommets. The car has the original windscreen and I've even looked behind the tweeter on the drivers door to see if there was any gaps underneath.
    Does anyone have any suggestions that I could check, or have any similar experiences. Feedback gratefully received. Thanks

    Thanks, I've not had any moisture or noticed any problem with opening the windows, I will take the car to Autowindscreens and ask them if it's possible to check the windscreen seal as I can't really check it myself.
    Thanks again.

    Question

    Thanks, the inner and outer door seals look to be in pretty good nick, the car is a low mileage facelift. I must admit that I had wondered about the windscreen seal as the sound seems to be in front of me, there's no wind noise or water ingress though??

    Might be silly advice but I get the same noise, the cure is winding the back windows up ! Over time, the manual winders seem to drop and slightly open the rear windows ?!?!?!

    Might be, you never know !
