Question about 1999 Toyota Camry
I get an excessive amount of wind noise coming from drivers side front window/ door.Can you advise me how to correct this problem?
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 need to replace the window regulator assembly.
The cables that run the glass up and down have broken inside the regulator.
Hope this helps. A FixYa rating would be greatly apprecited.

did you check the relay under the hood ? look and see if you can find your power box under the hood and under the lid of that box you will find the location of the window relay check that first before tearing into the door panel switches .. thanks Jerry and holler if you need more

No won't be fuse. My guess is there is something faulty with the main controller. You could probably verify this by trying the switch on right rear passenger door. If it works there then the problem is at the main controller in the driver door. Could be a loose wire or the switch itself is broken.

Remove the door panel and reconnect the plug going to the front driver door lock or, if you can hear the motor trying to engage the door lock cam when you press the lock/unlock remotereconnect the door lock lever bar
