    Wind noise

    Hi all: I have had some wind noise for quite a while now. Have read a few posts about this and tried several solutions including taping all the seams on and around the tow mirrors. Went to my dealer and they advised a recent TSB had addressed this, it is not the tow mirrors (like I had thought) but instead it is the seals around the front seat side windows. They showed this to me by taping around both windows completely and, voila, no noise. They are in the process of ordering the new seals. It seems it will be an extensive process because both doors will need to be "stripped" and both windows taken out to do the work. Glad to finally have a solution to this problem.

    I didn't realize they issued a TSB on the 2016, but I had mine done a month ago. It did help significantly, but I still think they could be improved. It is a much tighter seal. The window used to clunk once closed as it hit the seal.
    I have to admit that I'm ultra sensitive to wind noise and squeaks and rattles!

    My '16 has had this issue since new, would appreciate the TSB number.

    Mine gets quieter if I lower the driver window about 1/16". Definitely a seal issue.

    Does the TSB include 2014 and 2015 also?

    Would also be very interested in the TSB number. Took mine to the dealer last week. No improvment.

    I will try to get the TSB No. and post it. I would think it would cover all 1500's that have noise.We found the noise comes from the area where the door makes a bend from the A-pillar to the body/fender area.
