Wind Noise, access cab

Anyone have problems with wind noise coming from behind the driver in the access cab? Problem starts at over 40 MPH. Checked all of the door seals and none are out of place or twisted. Vehicle is an '07. Any TSB's out?

Thanks for the help

I have a new 06 bought in Oct. I don't have wind noise, ie. leaks and whistles but there seems to be a lot of aero noise at 60mph, in other words just the force of the air passing by is the noise that I hear. Just a design problem but like I said no leaks or whistles.

The only exterior add on is an Extrang Trifecta tonneau cover. Seems to be tight all around. Never leaks going thru the car wash.

Good place to start. Take if off and give the process of elimination a try. You may be pleasantly surprised.

Exactly my problem John. Noise is more noticable depending on sidewind direction. Stuffed a towel in the exterior lower cavity of the access door and no more noise.
Nice that I found the source of the problem but there is no practical way to fix it. Just a design flaw.

I was going to say I did the same thing as Rehabber, once I loaded up work gloves, shop rags, couple spare T-shirts it hasn't been that bad. I have noticed that loose stuff in the little storage compartments make a lot of noise over bumps, but thats another story.

My new 07 has wind noise on the freeway from about 50 mph on up. Dealer states the noise comes from the lower seal of the rear access cab door and that Toyota is aware of the problem...however there is no fix at this time as it appears to be a design flaw. Dealer stated to check back periodically as they did expect something to develop overtime ---

Great work at problem solving, Rehabber and everyone, I was wondering since stuffing that lower cavity solved the problem, I was thinking that maybe Toyota assemblers for got to seal up an opening behind that panel, with the plastic sheeting or what ever they use these days.
In other situations years ago, they used to seal unused openings with a heavy saran wrap type material to keep noise and cold air and moisture from getting on the back of the panel. Perhaps when in a warm garage the panel might be removed and then inspected. Just a thought, it would not be the first time someone on the assembly line forgot something.

Jeff, did you stuff the interior door pocket to stop the noise? I was talking about the cavity on the lower outside of the access door facing the bed. It's big enough to stick a hand into. I thought the wind was swirling around inside there.

Rehabber, no I did not, my wind noise is what I call aero noise, wind going by the cab, at speed of over 50. Not necessarily whistling just more noise than with other vehicles I have owned and driven lately( my friends, 06 Denali) and this is just a design problem and wind noise is a criteria that car magazines often mention in there tests.

What I do have is a rattle, which seems to be in the rear of the cab and I have checked to make sure things are tight, its not there all the time, just over certain bumps etc. It sounds like there is something loose, in the area of the jack under the jump seat.

When my truck goes in for its 5000 oil change, which I will have a dealer do, I will mention it to them.

Jeff,

I too had a "rattle" from that same area and it sounded like something was loose when hitting bumps, etc...came to find out it was the passenger seat belt hitting against the padded stop on the pillar. The projection of the sound fooled me as it sounded like it was coming from behind where it actually was. It would come and go (when someone was sitting there I could never duplicate it as they had the belt on). May not be a player in your noise but wanted to pass it on.

Kev

I noticed wind noise as well. I just crank the music up louder. Annoying though when trying to talk on the phone. Would be nice if they recalled and fixed.

I just bought an 07 double cab and I get wind noise but it sounds like its coming through the front doors by the mirrors. it might only be aero noise but it is a little annoying. I hope there is a fix for this

Thumbs down

This thread sounds depressing??? They knew about the problems, but didn't fix them for the 2007's? I may now hold off until the 08's come out!!

On a 07 Access cab, I'm getting an intermittent noise with cross winds...sounds like a mix of nails on a blackboard and a kazoo. Sounds like it's coming from the top of the windshield, center or passenger side. I've had the truck three weeks, and haven't took it in for a write-up yet. No external accessories or modifications.

Access cabs have a vent in the back wall of the cab. It's behind the seat panels. It releases pressure when you turn on the A/C, and when you slam your door shut. You can partially seal off this vent and it can reduce some of that wind noise.
