Wind noise and rattling door

Ok, so three faults (or should that be features?) have developed in my JTS. Any ideas?

1) Front passenger door seems to rattle between 40-60 mph (around 70mph it stops).

2) Rattling on roof lining? Seems to be the sun visor though?

3) Wind noise at motorway speeds. This only happens during higher than normal wind speed and makes a high pitch whistling noise. Now the dealer did adjust the door seal and made it quieter, but I noticed that if the window is completely up I can still hear it, but if I lower the window a fraction the whistling noise stops which leads me to conclude it the seal on the window as well?

BTW, the car's just done 2500 miles and counting...

Try popping out the light unit in the centre and putting a small piece of insulating tape around the wires to hold them together. The buzzing/rattling is usually these wires resonating on the inside of the roof.

Good luck with the other noises.
