    Howdy...newby forum user here.

    OK, I've been dealing with this for months...no more!

    My truck gets a high pitch squealing from behind the dash when I hit speeds of 75 or more. A gust of wind will also cause this noise. It sounds like when you hold a blade of grass between you palms and blow through it; high pitch and annoying.

    I've tried messing with the A/C and heater settings, no luck. Tried taping down the washer fluid cable that is attached to the underside of the hood in case that was getting vibrated, nope. I know it is something to do with wind vibrating something under the hood.

    My wife is refusing to ride in my truck on the highway and I have no idea what this noise is or who could find/fix it. Any takers on the cause of this noise?

    Damn fellas!

    That was some fast help! I'll get to checking the windshield seal...better yet, as I know nothing of glass, I'll call my shop and they can do it.

    We'll see how this helps!
