Sounds like a wheel bearing issue if not tire.

How do I replace the window weatherstripping on both the driver and passenger side windows on my 2000 Mistubishi Eclipse GT?


Only the dealer will have them through special order and they should come with instructions. VERY EXPENSIVE!

Whistling sound coming from right rear


Checking Window Seals - The window seals (weather stripping) in your car are used to seal the water and wind for entering the passenger compartment. When these seals fail from damage or are eroded by the weather they can allow wind noise to enter the passenger compartment. This failure can cause a whistling noise as the car is driven. Some noises are only present when the vehicle is driven at certain speeds such as 55 MPH. These whistling noises can be difficult to find since you are driving at the time. Have a passenger help with the diagnosis by running their hand along the area the noise is being generated from. Once the noise source has been located replace or repair the failed seal and recheck.

When we get up around 70 mph on the freeway there is a high pitched whistling noise. Are there any common problems with trailblazers that might be causing this?


Ive seen this on trucks with foldaway mirrors. The wind whistles through where the mirror mounts to the base. Try putting a piece of tape over it and driving to see if it stops.

At high speeds, I here a high pitched squeal coming from the passenger side dashboard. Its like the wind is reflrcting off something and it makes this annoying sound. Can you help me figure this out.


I'd check the passenger side mirror first, make sure it is tight to the window frame, no gaps. It causes a wind noise or whistle. It could be from the outside of the truck, try to pin point. Does noise go away with either window down? Does noise get louder turning in one direction (wheel bearing)? Does it get worse then seem better (could be tire noise)? Eliminate fan motor, and radio. Does it get worse with vehicle speed or just engine speed?

this means that your door weather seal is not doing its job two reasons door gasket could be torn or lost its seal the other reason is the door frame has been bent maybe by triple a guys with their air bladders to open the door or some other way,it should still be under warranty see the dealer.

Vibration/Rattling on right side during high speeds


I had a similar problem. The dealer change automatic transmission and differential, but the noise continu. After research on internet i think the problem is the front galiper who create a vibration on the disc wheel and the vibration frequence follow the front axle until interior car. Just press slowly the brake pedal and if the noise stop , that's it the cause i think. I dont change my galiper, but i have a new transmission . :)))

I have a whistle or humming noise from the front of 05 Montana.


Put wide tape on different areas of the windshield edge as a test to see if the noise changes.Then you may know where the noise originates and can correct the noise.
Just by chance,it is a wind noise? and not a front wheel bearing going bad?which is common on these vehicles and can create a humming at different speeds.Next time when the hum shows up turn the steering wheel slightly left and right at road speed and if you can change the hum,it's 99% a wheel bearing.

I have a 2008 Dodge Grand Caravan SXT. About 2 months after purchase, I noticed a whistling sound emanating from the right corner of the dash/windshield when driving 60 mph. The whistle was steadiest...


Hi, 2possible suggestions that will help you, when dealing with a wind noise it is almost always visible in the affected area by seeing a redich resedue caused by entering dust particles,

you could also use''masking'' duckt tape to seal off all your suspect areas(starting with the r/h section of the windshield) then by trail and error systematically remove piece by piece of this tape untill your noise is located, then you can decide on what to do with the ''leak''
