  1. IVE GOT THIS SOUND AND ITS COMING FROM THE LOWER DRIVERS CORNER OF THE WIND SHEILD AND ITS LOUD ON THE HIGHWAY IM BRINGING IT IN SOON AND ILL REPORT BACK. I ALSO HAVE THE SHIFT SQUEEK ISSUE AND THE ESP ISSUE.

  2. I am having this same issue on my 2008 but the sound is coming from the drivers upper windshield. Anyone else having this issue in this area?

  3. I’m having this very same issue on my 2008!!! It’s coming from the passenger side near the tweeter. The repair sounds amazingly simple so I may do it myself. Of course they’ll only keep making the same mistake if consumers don’t let them know about it.

  4. Soft top. Wind sound is coming from the top of R&L A-pillar on mine since I bought it. Dealer has attempted to fix it but it did not show any improvement after they spent four days working on it and tried to replace the header seal. I do alot of my own repair so— I bought a wide roll of masking tape and begain covering any area of the windshield, corner post, top of the door seal, etc., and finally came to the conclusion the noise is coming from a gap at the front edge of the top as it laps over into the DOOR seal(there is a sewn roll on the outside edge just to the lower edge of the header seal). There is a gap where all the rubber gaskets come together. The door gasket does not fill the area, the header gasket does not extend into the area, and the front edge of the top is above the gap, creating a wind disturbance area. Check it out, I haven’t got a fix yet but working on it.
