Wind rattle - 2004 GC

Guys -

Have kind of a weird noise lately in the GC

Sounds like a wind rattle coming from the passenger door/windshield
area.

It's loudest on the passenger side, but I also have it on the drivers side
to a lesser degree.

Is it possible that the noise is coming from the mirror wiring openings? I had both mirrors replaced by the bodyshop after the Hurricane Sandy damage was repaired. If I recall correctly there is supposed to be a seal where the wiring comes in and perhaps they didn't replace it?

Steve

The seal is part of the mirror wireing harness that comes with the new mirror. You can't replace one without the other. Now did they put the seal/grommet in the hole in the door frame is the question.

I have some weird "wind" noises around my windows. Usually passenger side, worse when there's a cross wind. From my previous research, I was led to believe its the seals/insulution inside the the door frame, above the glass. I stuffed some foam up there and it got better but now it's back. I might try shooting some expanding foam insulation in there next time.
Putting tape in different places and test driving would be a very good idea.

Guys - thanks for that info.

I have to pull the door panels out to put in new speakers, so I'll check the seals inside the door.

I would think they would have put in the seals when they replaced the mirrors, but you never know. I'd be more inclined to think its rubber seals in the door frame.

The area I'm talking about is above the glass (top of door frame). If I remember correctly, you can pull down the glass seal/track after lowering the window.
