    I got the same on my drivers side, right above my ear.
    really annoying.

    I'm going to adjust my door again and see what happens.
    If adjusting the main door don't help, I'll just adjust the window frame to push in a bit at the top.

    I think it'll be the window frame/door alignment. The rubber door seals also seem to lose their spring when they get old, so they sort of flatten down.

    Try rubbing some silicone grease into the seals, it rejuvenates the rubber and makes it more flexible - I've just done the wife's car as part of the 10,000 mile service. If you are really keen, see if you can get some 'icex' - this is excellent for keeping rubber supple, although I suspect it is VERY expensive as we use it at work

    just a quick question, how do you adjust the window frame (as my passenger door is ok) but the top corner of the door has a wind noise when driving.

    Not a bad idea.
    Not thought about treating the rubber.
    Worth looking in to I think.

    Take the door card off and there is 4 torx bolts, 2 on each side that adjusts the window frame.
