156 SW Wind Noise
I've had a search on the forum but have mostly come up with threads relating to GT's. Ever since buying my 156 SW about 7 weeks ago I have noticed it is a bit noisier than it should with wind noise in the cabin.
However today it is quite gusty outside and it was horrifically loud inside the cabin with wind seeming to be blowing through both the driver and passenger front door regions. The seals look to be in good condition with no tears and are well attached. Are there any areas that I should be looking in particular?
I am suspecting it could be an issue with the window angle and it might not be sealing fully with the rubber at the top of the window. Is there some sort of angle adjustment mechanism where I can change the angle slightly and see if I get a better seal and thus less noise? I have also read some suggestions to check the front wheel wells and will give them a look too.
All help would be greatly appreciated as it was driving me insane today. I don't expect it to be completely wind-proof but it can certainly be improved over the current situation.
