Wind Noise in Cab

Ever since I got this rig, I sometimes hear wind coming in while all the windows are up. It comes in from both the driver's and passenger's side, however I can tell if it's coming in where the doors come together on the weatherstrip or if it's coming from the upper window track. Any suggestions on how to troubleshoot this? I can tell you that the outer weatherstrip on both sides was replaced several months ago and I still have the issue.

I would check the seals around the window. I've seen those get bent up when you start rolling your windows up which (they get caught one time and permanently get bent) causes them to not seal right. But other then that, I would say just look at the seals and see how everything looks.

heres a tricked i used in my grandam. i used those dust removers for your keyboard, if u turn it upside down u get a white spray instead of just clear air, u can roll ur windows up and spray the inside shooting up and where ever it comes through thats the prob. if not that can be crossed of the list. im sure it doesnt work perfect, but it helped me :)

BEWARE: When using the can upside down, it freezes whatever it touches, therefor spray it seconds without trying to freeze the weatherstripping. try it on ur jeans to know how long it takes to freeze


do that or just get and air gun and use the air to shoot through it and put ur hand on the other side to feel if any gets through.

I had that problem too. It was the window arms in the door. They had to be replaced.

Also.. you may just need to have the doors adjusted (on their hinges)

I have the same problem. I installed a bug deflector (for different reasons) and it seems to reduce the wind noise. I will look into these suggestions also....thanks!

we have this weather stripping stuff used on door ways, its kinda sticky on one side and really sticky on the other with a paper covering the stickyness, its about 3/4 in wide and grey. like a spongy material. i used it on the cubby holes in the back of my cad to stop the lil doors from rattling. i ALSO used it in the curve of the weatherstripping at the top by the windshield. it didnt cut out all the noise, but most of it.
