Lots of air noise coming through. I cant find a veiw of the inside door to repair the problem. Does any one got one?

There may be a torn, missing, or loose door gasket. If you inspect the seal and find torn or missing segments, repair or replace. If the seal is intact, the the most likely cause is a gap in the door seal near the top rear of the door. This happens over time because the door frame can actually get bent slightly outward. It is so little as to not be visible, but you can hear the wind noise. The way to get the noise to stop is to open the door and roll the window all the way down. Then, holding the door firmly, grasp the upper rear corner and pull it inward (toward to the car). A couple of sharp tugs will usually do the trick. I know it sounds silly, but it works. BE SURE TO HAVE THE WINDOW DOWN OR YOU COULD SHATTER THE GLASS!
The door frame is quite thin compared to other car body parts and will bow/bend if you pull on it. Start out carefully and if you don't get the results you want, try again with more force.
You checked fuses and relays for electrical cranked window?
Remove: internal door handle, remove window crank if manual crank, door panel, remove film/paper seal.
If is mechanical crank: check for worn out parts on gearing and racks (reinstall crank and wind window up and down). Replace worn parts.
If electrical window crank: check for power at solenoid. Try switch again and watch to see if solenoid engages and tries to crank.
Check to see if switch is broken. Try door switch and drivers door switch.
Pickup another solenoid and replace old one.
If its electric.. check for fuses blown? Automatic window motor atleast making noises?? If fuse isnt blown or window motor doesnt make noise it could be broken wire inside the door.if the motor makes noise (clicking noises with no movement) could need replacement. The window might have slipped out of the guides..check owners manual for fuse location.."haynes manuals" sells some good books on how to replace parts on automotives. U will find detailed info there.they can also be found online or for sale in Canadian tire or places like that.
possible latch became diconnected in door , do you hear lock activate when unlocking or locking door to see if motor is working ,did you try using manual lock button should move up and down,try this while using power locks ,it may be just stuck,
The dealer is right, the latch that keep door from opening to far wears and makes a poping noise but 400.00 is a bit much, try the web and see if you can find one cheaper, its not to hard to install, you would just need to remove door panel to replace, good day
failing that go to auto zone they can show you the location and quote the parts price too
remem ber to turn on wipers and turn on ignition dont start the car look under hood listen for winding noise locate noise locate wiper motor
if making wiring noise remove and re conect wiper arms inside as they are prone to poping off if over loaded like when frozen to wind screen they pop the conector rather than burn the motor out ]
tony i'm assuming you on about the little bar/plate about an inch wide which seems to rattle about when you open the door??? This is i suppose the check strap and it is designed to hold the door open while not letting the door go too far and become hingebound, bending the hinge and possible damaging the door panel. If it is making a clicking noise it may need a bit of lubrication as it will go over some kind of ball or ridghe to slow it down. If it is completely loose it may be catching something inside the door, possibly the window frame guide or the internal skin of the door. check the mounting bolts on the door post and in the resess on the door and tighten them up and lubricate the rod. You may need to remove internal door skin, window switches etc to get to it. what ever you do do not remove it altogether, as one day the wind may catch it and take the door right around 180 degree causing serious damage, they are not designed to stop the door completely and can stretch if the wind does catch it so check it for damage to as it could effect the door hinges later on
