Wind noise from door seal -- how to fix?

My 1991 190E 2.6 has a small wind noise form the front, passenger door. It is near the top, rear of that window as well as down the window frame toward the rear of that same window. When riding, I can press out on the door gently and the noise increases. The seal is in great shape, car or door have never been wrecked. How do I remedy this?

By the way, this morning I discovered a great way to find the sources of your wind noise. We have a very heavy frost. I started the car and had the heat on for several seconds -- that is when I saw, on the outside, 2-3 places where the frost had melted-- guess what, the seal at those places must be leaking. Now...to just figure out how to fix them:-)

Thanks guys,

brookspw

Michael, thank you. I need to check my door speakers as well, but haven't been able to figure out how to pull the door panels. Can you give me a quick tutorial?

Thanks, brookspw

you need to get the books or cd.The door panels usually only have one hidden screw that will be on the arm rest handle you will have to pluck off the plasticover.
