Thread: Wind noise

  1. #1

    Wind noise

    Anyone get alot of wind noise around the front of the side windows. I'm getting it on the driver's side near the mirror. Nothing looks out of place.

    Also. I never had this sound with my Gen3 or Gen4 so I assume it's not normal.


    Thanks in advance.

    You may want to take some 303 wipes and clean up the seals. Also never lean on or close the door with the glass. Get a friend to blow some low pressure and low volume compressed air from the outside while you try to isolate the leak area from the inside. From there many solutions are available from easy to difficult. See if the noise is coming from around the mirror flag (the black triangle piece) or the seal itself.
    Not sure where you are located but one the "Big 3" dealers or many of the specialists on this site could help you as well. Be careful if you try to adjust the glass itself if it is a large area of the seal leaking. One can do more harm than good without knowledge.

    Gen V owners have been chasing this problem since day one...with a variety of "solutions" being posted.
    I don't send or receive "PM's" since I prefer DIRECT communication.

    Lots of threads on here about this (have you tried searching?). Some have replaced the triangular piece at the front of the glass with good results. Mark Jorgensen had posted that this sometimes works but not always. By 14 GTS has wind noise but my 17 ACR does not.
    2017 ACR/TA in 2014 TA Header Orange, #4 of 10.

    2014 GTS in white with gunmetal stripes. I'm also one of the original 100's
