Default Excessive driver side window wind noise

Does anyone else have a lot of wind noise on the driver side window when driving? Anyone have any remedy for this? Thanks.

If you're under warranty, have the dealership adjust or replace the gusset at the front edge of the door. If you are not under warranty, adjust it yourself.

Unfortunately not under warranty... have no idea what a "gusset" is...sounds like what a fat english prince would wear. No idea how to adjust said item of clothing... Intend to check internet... Can't seem to type in full sentences...

Thanks captain...

You can try to lubricate the rubber seals with some silicone. They get dry after a while and the silicone helps to soften them back up. I use Pyroil Silicone spray.

The gusset is the piece that is opposite the base of the exterior rearview mirror. It is slightly adjustable, and is most often the cause of wind noise in the cabin on the newer models (older models it was the outside mirrors making noise).

Ghetto solution: Lower your driver's side window completely and open your door. Locate the little triangular rubber/plastic piece near the base of your sideview mirrow and squeeze the top of it together gently. It seems that this little rubber "triangle" that forms a seal around the glass sometimes gets deformed. When the gap is wider than the pane of glass, it causes wind noise.

It may not seem like a technical solution, but it works very well given that your wind noise is actually coming from that area.

Lightbulb Wind noise

I started getting wind nose on the rear of the driver side front window. Several days later the window would not close. Turned out two of three bolts that hold the power window motor in place fell out. Fixing that also fixed the wind noise.
