    My '10 Limited as developed a bad wind leak noise at the top rear of the passenger front door. The rubber seals both are in good shape. The door seems to be aligned OK and not sagging. Any ideas?



    Thanks

    I assume you meant to type '10? Anyway, if you figure it out let me know because I have noticed something similar on my '07 Limited. I have been hoping that it is just a result of the extremely cold temps this winter but that is probably wishful thinking.

    Mine too. I figure it needs a new door seal.

    Tried the index card/paper test? From the Ford Workshop Manual:

    Try lowering your door glass 1/8 inch or less by bumping the switch quickly. I found out mine was the glass, not the door. Haven't took the time to deal with it, but the noise stopped.

    My 08 Adrenalin does this as well on the drivers door. Drives me crazy! The weatherstripping seems to be in good condition

    Thanks for the ideas. I will check it out.



    I always thought the leak was between the door and the body at the top, but it makes sense that it could be between the glass trim and the door. I push on the door at the top and cannot seem to change it much.



    If it wasn't such a big damn deal, I would get my wife to drive it down the highway so I could sit on the passenger side and listen and poke around. Maybe I can con her by taking her out to dinner or something...
