Fixed my whistling today with new screws but managed to drop one into my power outlet and shorted it agghh!

I am just new to GT ownership but I am already enjoying the experiance of said 'wind noise'.

Its going to Mango's next week to have the lazymans control sorted so I'l mention the 'nodes' to them and see if I can get them done under warranty.

After trying all the suggestions here to cure wind noise from passenger door I found the one that worked - adjust the door so that it shuts slightly tighter.

I moved the door-shut inwards by about 2mm. The shut lines looked exactly the same but now the noise has disappeared completely! Wish I'd done it months ago.

Took less than 5 mins - you need a T40 Torx to loosen the two bolts.

I think this should be the FIRST thing you try if you have a similar problem. Deady easy.

door wind noise (whistling)

I tried the masking tape over the shut lines method, but to no avail.
Then I tried masking tape around the window seals ... still nothing.
Finally I removed the door mirror, and "hey presto !" my whistling noise had gone.
On inspection of the mirror I could find nothing really obvious, only holes for bolts with no bolts in them, so I fabricated a gasket out of a bicycle inner tube, making only the smallest of holes to fit the fixing bolts through.....the result, whistling gone for good.
