    Unhappy Wind noise on S3

    When my car goes over 40 mph i seem to be getting alot of wind noise coming from around the window. I've changed all the seals and tried to adjust how the window sits by adjusting the door frame bolts. Has anyone had this problem themselves or not how to solve it?

    yeah the passenger door is fine, no noise what so ever. no i think the door is fine, the noise seem to be coming from higher up around the front and rear of the window.

    I get a little wind noise at 150(kmh), it's suprisingly stable and refined in an S3 at such a crazy speed, or maybe i'm concentrating too much on the road ahead lol.

    It could be the front screen if you have had a new one fitted. Try putting tape on the side of the screen over the rubbers and onto the screen pilar. If this cures it then go the the screen fitters and tell them that you arfe not sattisfied with the work and they will have to refit it. Don't jusrt tell them show them. It worled for me.

    I had this recently and have not had a new windscreen. Seems to have stopped now though. Inexplicable.

    Had this on my B5 A4, it seemed to be whistling from the wing-mirror, or inside the door somewhere. It was weird, as there was a draught coming through from the electric window switches too....

    I never did find the cause.

    Nope, it's definately the drivers door window area that the noise is from. It's doing my head in!
