Air Noise from front doors!

When I have a cross wind I have terrible air noise from the front doors. My doors shut fine, do not have any problems with windows closing tight. If I am driving North and I have a cross wind from the West, the passengar door vibrates at the top and the air noise it very loud. Same if it were from the East but it would be the drivers door making the noise. If I do not have a cross wind I do not have an air noise problem. Any idea how to help this situation?

    Thank you for your info, I have done this and they look at me like I do not know I am talking about and told me it may be the rubber around the door but it is in good shape. Not like I want to pay this much for a test, but may have to. =) Thanks again

The valve clicking sound in the 3.2 liter engine is a common occurance in most of the Isuzu Rodeo Engines. Some owners have spent money on expensive repairs to try and fix the noise, and some say that certain oils will make them quieter. Others have as many as 2 to 300,000 miles on these engines without a problem other than the clicking noise. Drive on.

SOURCE: Our Rodeo 2000 model has a problem with the two front doors..

I had to replace both of the front stops on my 00 Rodeo. It is a common issue so by replacing them it will take care of the problem.

SOURCE: 2006 I-280. Battery died, replaced the battery

I'll try to help. It sounds like the drivers window motor or drivers window control shorted and killed the battery. If you want to fix it yourself you should take off the negative battery cable before taking off the drivers' door panel.

Then look at the backside of the drivers' window control switch and see if anything is melted. It could have melted the lock button too!

Some vehicles have an electronic menu in the dash or information center. This is where the optionable controls for "honking locks" and "flashing security lights" is programmed. You might have to reset the controls.

If you do not have these fancier features check your fuse panel for burn outs. If you do not want to do it yourself go to a glass shop or dealer.

Are there consumer complaints about the wind noise caused by the overhead luggage cross bars?


You won't know whether you'll have a problem with wind noise until you try it. I've driven 4 rack-equipped vehicles over the years. The only rack that made noise was the dealer-installed rack on an old vehicle, and that was ONLY during cold, misty weather (drizzle or very thick fog). What this shows is that wind noise can be a very finicky thing, as far as what causes it. That also means that if it occurs, you can probably come up with a trick to change the air flow which will stop it from happening (I've heard of tricks as simple as a spiral wrap of rope around the cross bar stopping wind noise, but I bet every situation is different). None of the other racks, including the boat rack for Subaru`s, which used 2x4s for the cross bars, made any noise that I could hear. In fact, the auxiliary rack for my current car (only used when needing extra width for two boats) also uses 2x4 cross bars, and it makes no noise.

I wouldn't use factory cross bars. There might be some good ones out there, but I haven't seen them. The general rule is to go with aftermarket bars, as well as the necessary bar-mounting hardware.

Some people love fold-down J-hooks, but since it only takes 30 seconds to remove them and about one minute to install them, why not just take them off, leaving bare cross bars? I take them off when not needed. I even take them off when parked by the river during a trip. After all, if I can remove both of them in 30 seconds using just my hands, so can a thief. Anyway, a folded-down J-hook is still a very bulky item to have up there compared to a bare cross bar.

Same goes for saddles. It takes only a moment to install or remove them, so if you want to keep air resistance to a minimum or not worry about the potential for wind noise, just drive with a bare rack when not carrying boats.

Slight squeaking Noise coming from 2009 Honda? Only with wind or on highway not idle


This sounds like wind noise. Try to find the air leak by mixing up some really soapy water , start your car and turn on the heat on high. Wash the car with the soapy water paying close attention to areas around doors and windows. If you see air bubbles growing, or foaming this is most likely your air leak.Check the seals around this area for cracks or damage.

My air conditioner in my 2006 ford freestyle is blowing warm air. If I speed up it will cool a little and then when i turn off my car there is a clicking noise coming from the dash


I had the same problem with my ford, it turned out to be a door in the dash that switched between heat and a/c, the clicking noise is the gears flaping the door but not being able to open, if your heat works fine but not a/c this is the problem. BTW this part is very hard to get to without removing your dash.

My 2004 Silverado is displaying a similar issue - but it grinds loudly on either a sharp left or right turn at slow speed - it feels like it is winding itself up terribly then releasing that energy in burst as it skips & hops along. If you shut the truck off in this position, then try to restart it, it will lurch forward a good foot as soon as you turn the key. I have no idea what the problem is

High pitch winding noise on cold start up.


Sounds like a constricted IAC Idle air control valve passsage. Fairly simple to fix. Remove air filter trunking all the way to the throttle body to allow access. The IAC allows air passed the throttle when closed at idle. Just on the inside of the throttle body in front of the throttle flap there is an opening in the throttle wall. This is the air inlet to the IAC; there is an outlet similar on the other side of the throttle. Use carb cleaner and cloth to shift the grime from this tubing and get it like new. Hold the throttle flap open to get at both ends of the IAC tubing. The IAC can be detached and cleaned to a shine. Reinstall the IAC and replace all air pipe ducting. Leave for about 20 minutes to allow any cleaner residue to dry out. When you restart you might experience a bit of uneven running but this will disappear very quickly as the last of the cleaner dries out

Wind noise in the front doors


you may want to check under the hood and dashboard to make sure all your rubber seal or there. open the hood and leave it open if you can see light anywhere looking from under the hood that could be the problem. if not check the seals around the door and the opening to the car to make sure they are there and not deteriorated

Terrible wind buffeting noise with rear windows-both Buick and dealership insist we pay for the fix as described in #PIT4355B as "helicopter type" noise. Unbelievable. Sounds like tire is falling off the...


Here's the info from GM:

Condition/Concern:
Some customers may comment of a helicopter type noise when a rear window is lowered. This is known as buffeting and it is a low frequency, high volume wind noise that may occur in a moving vehicle with a rear window open.

Recommendation/Instructions:
This is a normal characteristic of this vehicle, but the concern can be minimized by lowering a front door glass approximately 1 to 2 inches. Installation of accessory weather deflectors along the front door glass may also be effective in alleviating the buffeting noise. Seems to me there's nothing to pay for with this info. This is common in alot of vehicles I've dealt with in my career. I'd say if the dealer wanted you to pay for them to tell you that, maybe you should find help somewhere else.
The Enclave is a really nice vehicle. Don't let poor customer service from a dealer discourage you from enjoying your car.

Wind noise on 2006 Kia Sedona


  1. Pull the covers off from the top front of both rails.They are only loosely clipped.
  2. Undo the 2 screws found at the front and the 3rd screw at the back end of this base piece.
  3. Remove the base.( the nuts are locked in on the roof)
  4. Do this boths sides and then simply release the adjusting clips and slide off.
  5. Replace bases and screws in original positions and push on covers.
Best with 2 people.One each side when sliding off the cross rails.

Solved! And it looks neater.
