    I have a 2001 Audi A4 (new shape) and have a LOT of wind noise from both driver and front passenger doors. It seems to be coming from the corners nearest to where the wing mirrors are affixed. I have held my hands around the window frame and cannot feel any draft, it's just noise

    My questions are -
    Does the solution proposed in Solution #1 work?

    Would getting Wind deflectors eliminate the problem?

    Could it actually be the front windscreen area be the problem?

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:)

Tip

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:)

Audi A4 car door window us not working


can you hear the motor trying to work the window? A fairly common problem is the window regulator breaks. this is the cable operated lifting mechanism that raises the window, when it breaks you can hear the motor winding away, accompanied by a faint clunking noise as the motor tries to operate the mechanism. They are quite difficult to replace.
if you cant hear the motor working (also assuming all your other windows do work) then either to motor is faulty or there is no power to the motor. the wiring inside the rubber boot that goes from the car to the door (by the door hinges) is prone to breaking due to the constant flexing back and fourth as the door is opened and closed. switches can also fail, you may be able to swap the drivers/passengers switches around if they are identical for testing.

Window problems on my 1998 a4? They seem like they're off track but i hear that it could be pullies....help


On the inside trim, you can remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. Pull back the weather seal and you'll be able to see what the cause of the noise is
