    Default Driver's door window whistles

    My driver's door window whistles when driving down the highway at speed when it's windy outside......how can I solve this? Is the fix the same as fixing a leaky window seal...by installing a 2" piece of 5mm tubing in the window seal...? Just asking to be sure...? I do not have leaky seals as in water....strange ...Hmmmm...?
    Thanks....

    My petrol 450 has the same issue. The driver side door hinge is ever so slightly out but it is noticeable when you look at it when it is closed. At 70mph, the door seal whistles. Funny the first few times, annoying the rest. The tubing should help

    Adjusting the hinge was my first thought also, but I' not taking the front off the car to get at them in the winter...lol, so will try something less energetic first...lol My door doesn't look to be out but this is what I think that causes it reducing the pressures on the seal.

    Potentially the hinge pins are worn rather than the hinge having actually moved.
    This and a combination of a weakening door seal.....

    Adjust the stops for your window. Remove door panel for access to screws.
