Easy way to find wind noise. Take the car put the setting for climate control on economy and turn blower on high. Shut the doors and wash the vehicle with soap around door edges . What this does is pressurize the cabin and you can find bad seals ect. I have fought alot of wind noises until I found this trick.I wish someone would have told me this along time ago.

thanks.
found out there is an 1/8th of an inch gap between the glass and rubber on the driver side window running top to bottom...looks like the glass has shifted forward leaving this gap.
anyway to adjust the window?? Is getting to it a major job or can a DIY handle it?

This is a 140 chasiss. I dont recall and adjustments to make the window higher unless the stop is incorrect. May have a regulator problem like most 140's. You would have to remove door panel to ck. Just be careful of woodgrain for seat switch.
