EXPLORER WINDSHIELD WHISTLE

2003 All Other Makes All Other Models

Does anyone happen to know the source & fix for the loud whistle caused while driving in strong cross-wind. It appears to be coming from the top corner of the windshield, but really can't locate it. It sounds like a very loud version of someone blowing across a paper-covered comb. It is definitely related to the strong cross-wind and comes and goes when driving through sheltered areas.

Does the windshield leak water or anything? Try going through a car wash and watch for any leaks around the seal. It almost sounds like a small hole in the seal they use around the windshield.

Sometimes roof racks will make noise depending on conditions, don't know if you have one though.
