    Whenever I drive in windy weather there is this super load and annoying whistling sound that comes from the passenger side. It is so god damn load it drives me crazy sometimes. Anyone else have this problem or know how to fix it?

    Door seals, windshield seal, lower control arms.
    I had a noise like that in my 07 that came through the dash/ air system I think. Only on windy days and around 75 mph. I never found it before it was stolen.
    Good luck.

    Look around on here and you'll find that some guys put 1/4" tubing in the door seal gap. It cures it. I used about 2ft worth I think.

    if its a kazoo sound its a door seal issue. They have a TSB seal that implemented the same fix i came up with years ago. Get yourself some 1/4in dripper pipe and run it in the folds of the seal to stiffen the seal up. Kazoo noise will stop.

    I'll try the foam cord if it ever starts up again. I have unlimited supply of surgical tubing so I just used it. So far it works great
