Wind noise at high speed

Hi guys Iv just bought a X type 2.2 diesel soverion for the wife and test drove it on the motorway the other day and found that as I went over 60 mph there was a wind type noise from both side doors/ windscreen as if the window was not quiet up,the faster I go the noisier it becomes as any one got any ideas thanks,

Try masking tape around the door mirrors where they fit to the door.

I had the same problem on my Rover 75, turned out to be missing foam gasket.

Hi Phil,

That is a good idea from David.

You can also try "rejuvenating" the rubber seals with WD40 or something similar.  I had water ingress in my boot and giving the rubber seals a good clean has solved the problem

Let us know how you get on.

Regards,

Peter.

I will try that tip you mentioned with the a4 paper as well when I do the mirrors,somebody also mentioned that if the door card as been off to replace a window regulator that the water proof membrane could have been damaged,thanks again Jim for your advice.
