A whistling noise? I got it too but I think it's the hood. So I'll try out the elimination tape method. And look like I do hack body repairs. But whatever works.

Not whistling...just sounds like a window is open a bit. Its definitely coming from the back of the cab.

When I installed my vent-visors, for some reason about 2 months after they were put in, some of the weatherstripping started to expand. I just stuck part of a sock where the window goes

Just for clarification, we are talking about the weatherstripping that seals the slider window or the rear doors. Everything on the slider seems to be sealing. I just can't seem to pinpoint the noise.

Sorry about the vid, it was taken down long time ago, Here is what you do, both passenger and driver have weatherstripping going around the entire door entrance, now whether you have a 2-door or a 4-door does not matter, the weatherstipping over time in the upper position (the one that the window slides into when closing your window) becomes loose and does not provide the same snug fit as before.

here is what I did, I took some white silicone all weather adhesive and put it on top of the window rubber, I did did from one end to the other, are you following me.

1- step 1.... role window down
2- step 2.... pull rubber weatherstripping down
3- step 3.... squeeze white silicone from one end to the other; Than roll or (push button) for window to go of, make sure it is up all the way for a tight snug fit)
4- step 4..... let it sit like this for 24 hours

no matter what you do , do not let the window down, be sure to do the same for the opposite side.

The videos posted on this thread are no longer on YouTube. I've heard it could be the type of weatherstripping used around the doors? This a ridiculously simple, yet terribly annoying problem. Anyone have ideas?
