Wind Noise Around Rear Doors - FIXED!

Wind Noise Around Rear Doors - FIXED! - 05/17/06 02:55 AM

For over two years I've been riding down the highway listening to the wind racket around the rear doors sounding like the windows were down about a half inch. I posted this irritant on another forum recently and got an answer in a couple of days.

There is a U-shaped seal in the piece between the rear door window and the stationary quarter window that the main window travels in. That seal slipped down about an inch or so and allowed wind noise to intrude around the edge of the glass. I pulled the seal back up into position and the noise stopped. I'll stick it in place with a dab of RTV so make it stay put.

Yeah, I think we've all experienced that problem. Wish they had done a little better job on that.

Yeah, my tires drown out the sound of the winds noise. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/shiner.gif" alt="" />

Just got the hard top for my 2W4WD '99 from Rally Tops. What a difference in sound i.e. its so quiet compared to my ole rag top. Even the sound from my Mud Brutes is lessened (at least while the window is up). <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/cyclops.gif" alt="" />

tnx for posting this. I finally got the wind noise fixed on my sport too.. Too bad I had to wait untill some @$$hole broke out my window. I love this site 'cause of this site I found a place about an hour away that had a used window and saved $60 bucks..
