    I been playing around looking at the seals that surround our doors its pretty interesting the amount,size and locations yet we still have these scenarios where air can generate different noises. the First gen did it, second gen, and our 3rd gen does it.
    real quick check I did was how tight is the door seal/compression against the sill (metal). took a piece of shop rag (not cloth) put it between door seal and sill, closed door and pulled up on it to try and see how much seal compression their is.
    none in the upper rear corner of the drivers door where most of my noise comes from. I repeated the rag insertion by opening and closing the door moving it towards the front and it was noticeably harder each time to pull out. that is why the drip tube install seems to have a fair chance of making a positive effect.

    I had that exact same noise,I put a very thin bead of silicone on the side view mirrors in the gap between the black part and the color matched or chrome part(on Limited) and the noise is completely gone! It's been gone for months!

    Get some liquid silicone spray and put it on a rag and wipe your entire door seal with it...

    Bet that works..:thumbsup:

    Toyota replaced the weather stripping on the two front doors to resolve this issue. However, there seems to be more cabin noise now. Specifically with the wooshing noise from cars passings, driving on wet roads, or normal wind noises. I acknowledge that these are all normal to hear from within the can but the volume sounds as if the windows are cracked open. Anyone else notice this after getting new weather stripping installed? I brought the issue up with my dealer and they said the noise they heard is normal.

    I watched a YouTube video where he got TACO weather strip marine sealant rubber gasket 10 feet and applied it on the outer guide on the body side and let it go all the way around. It presses against the edge seal of the door. All I know the noise stopped even at 85 with a strong side wind. Amazon has the rubber seal, it is meant for coolers. Yea team.
