Cutting down on wind noise while driving


There's a quick and easy way to cut down some of the wind noise in your car while driving on the highway. Open the doors and look at the rubber seal at the top edge. See how it's a groove? This is to allow rainwater to channel down and off of the car.

However, that groove keeps the door from sealing as tightly as it could, and as a result, you may have wind noise at higher speeds. To fix that, try this:

Go to a hardware store and get some clear PVC hose (aka "fish tank tubing"). For an A4, get a single length about 14 feet long. On an A6, you'll probably need 18 feet to be safe, and a few extra still for an A8. You'll need the hose, a pair of cutters, and five minutes' time.

Starting at the front edge of the groove on the driver's door, press the tubing into the groove, trying not to twist it. Press it in evenly and smoothly, and when you get to the back edge of the groove, cut it off cleanly. Repeat for the other doors.

By using the tubing, you allow the door to seal more tightly, but you still have a channel in the tubing to allow rainwater to drain away, so you have the best of both worlds - a better door seal for quieter driving (and possibly better sealing to keep heat or AC in), and a way to still channel away rainwater:)

How do I correct wind noise on drivers side door / window 1999 Camry?


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.

When there heavy rainfall , water goes itno the passenger side door i have to move the rubber on bottom of door to let water out, why is this hapening ?


There are small drain holes along the bottom of the door, and it sounds like yours are clogged. Inspect the window seal along the rear edge and along the bottom window seal where the glass meets the door.
Another option would be to drill small, additional holes along the bottom of the door. If you do, make sure you locate them on the outside of the rubber seal. Otherwise, the water will drain inside the car. Hope this helps.

2002 suburban has leak in driver side rear floor. Cannot see where water would be coming from?


We had same--water on driver side rear floor (soaked!). Driver side front floor seemed dry until feeling UNDER rug, was slightly damp. We found the location of TWO leaks causing this.

Leak #1 was through the parking brake line/cable seal; Recaulked with silicone. Removed plastic trim on floor between floor and door to reveal metal channel filled with water.

Leak #2 was where the door meets the car, near the hinge. It was the accordian-looking tube housing the wiring for the door. The big, rubber, circular plug connecting it to the main part of the car had come loose and water ran down through that, into the SAME metal channel filled with water from leak #1; will seal with silicone.

Note: We found that the channel filled extensively near the front door, BUT the carpet edge from the floor near the rear seat was dipping into it, wicking it up to the rear floor. Also, upon acceleration, the water in the channel gushed toward the back, thus soaking the rear carpet.

These leaks were found by removing all plastic trim (covering edges of carpet by doors), then one of us pouring water into specific areas of the exterior of the vehicle, and the other one watching closely with a flashlight for any signs of dripping.

A4 drivers window wind noise


I got some clear vinyl tubing at a hardware store (about 12 feet just to play it safe) - I think it was 1/8" I.D. tubing. Look at the rubber door seal along the top edge of the door - see how it's kind of a channel shape? Press the tubing into the groove, and cut it off flush with the end of the groove. This will help the doors to seal better to the body of the car, and since you're using tubing, it still allows it to act as a rain gutter for water runoff. If you get 12 feet, you should have enough to do all four doors. It actually makes a difference:)
