Wind noise from around side mirros

Post by MarcinJ » Sun Aug 11, 2019 5:45 pm

I am fighting with annoying wind noise / buffeting etc (hard to say exactly) that comes from what it seems the area of the side mirror. Left hand drive. It appears at around 90 km/h. It helps a bit when I stick some tape over all the holes and lines where all the mirror parts connect together so I guess it is some aerodynamic stuff that is in question. My dealership has already made some repairs (sealed the part of the mirror that is directly attached to the car frame, that triangual shaped thing) but it is still there.
Anyone had something like that?

Not a problem I've experienced.

I don't have that issue. Maybe check if the side mirror if it is seated properly.
I've had issue with the wind noise when the rubber seal on the windscreen is detached on the lower right side just near the side mirror. The gap made a high pitched noise when driving. This seal is not glued to the body nor to the windshield, so when it's too hot, it becomes loose. Maybe check this...

If you examine the mirrors you'll notice a small cover on the bottom of the stalk (I believe that's the right name for it). The cover can be removed to access some screws holding the mirror. Anyway, both covers (left hand mostly) were lose, allowing the wind to make some noise. I wrapped it with a 3M 1080 matte black film, and the noise is gone. All I can hear now is the ordinary noise coming from the tyres and wind around the car. So this problem is solved I guess.

That's going to help others sort that problem if it occurs.
