Default Air Sound

When I am going about 100KM/H, I can hear this air sound coming through the driver side window. When I open and close it the sound is gone. This only happens sometimes. Anyone else having this problem?

Yes, it's probably just the seal between the window and rubber trim that isn't perfect when you roll the window up, but it goes away when you properly shut the door with the window up.

Wonder if this was before my door got fixed or after?

Even worse, look at the rubber edge, follow it along the top of the driver/passenger side windows. See that seam near the top? If you go through a touchless car wash (yeah I know) water just pours in through that seam..

I have a water soaked bubble in the door panel right below that seam and I think subaru should change the panel cause it's not supposed to be leaking..

Yeah, that's about right.

There are a set of adjustments you can perform to fix the alignment of the window. Check the service manual for information -- it involves pulling off the doors, and it's a royal pain in the ass.
