Lately i have been driving on the freeway and at speeds above 65mph you can hear wind noises very clearly, sometimes it is loud enough that you cant hear the stereo. I have checked all of the weather seals and they are good. Some of my friends and i have listened to see where the noise comes from and it seems to be the drivers side door. So knowing that i pull on the door so that it seals against the car better and the noise seems to go away. Also when you are outside of the drivers sided door you can see that the door isnt flush with any of the surrounding outer panels on the car near that door. If you just lean or push against the door it becomes flush. So is there anyway to make the door itself seal tighter on the car when its closed, maybe by tightening something??? It just gets very annoying to try and talk to someone or listen to the stereo when that wind noise happens. :mad: :mad:
Has anyone tried breaking into your car lately? Is it the whole door that doesn't seal well or just the top section? My buddy has a Trep the he pryed the door open on top just enought to reach through with a coat hanger to unlock it when he left his keys on the seat...his top corner door was "bent" out away from the body. He fixed it by "bending" it back into place... Just a thought...
I tried to get in but there wasnt that big off a gap. I can still hear what is happening. If you push on the door it seals but the second you let off of it it pushes back outwards and doesnt seal. I have no clue why it wont stay in place. I want to beat it with a bat. :mad:
Look at the latch on the door jam on the door that is loose. sometimes these come loose (they are held on by 2 "Torx" type bolts) you can usually tell if the latch has moved by the paint around it, there will be a mark where it was previously... this has never happened in either of my Treps, but I've had to adjust it on the LeBaron before , and on some of the other Chryslers I have had...just a thought.
don, i would come but i live in mn. bummer ;) Ill try what you said, and if i could come to that dc meet i would race you and you would most likely beat me. ;) And don, pushing that hard, it would seem like something would crack......
Thanks for the tip In2Deep and DScruggs, after reading this thread I went down to the garage and "messaged" my passenger front door as the top rear edge was not lining up with the roof and rear door panels. It is as if the door was not closed all the way, but only at the top corner. Now it does.

I can find ways to prevent my car from being stolen (aside from someone towing it), but I would really like to protect the contents of my car.
Damn, I wish we could shock the intruders. Stupid laws protecting the guilty!!!!!!!!
