New tires, new transmiision, new windsheild. Appears wind makes more noise on windsheild than one might expect. All other road noise has been taken care of. Any suggestios or approaches to solving this noisy winsheild. I think that's where the noise comes from. Bryon

THE 2003 EXPLORER WINDSHEILD WAS REPLACED. APPEARS THEY DID NOT REPLACE THE MOULDING AROUND 3/4 WINDSHIELD. SHOULD THEY HAVE, THE STATE FARM SAYS YES. SO THE GLASS COMPANY WANTS TO PUT GLUE INTO THE MOULDING. CAN THE MOULDING BE REPLACED WITHOUT REMOVING THE GLASS? OR IS THE MOULDING PART OF THE GLASS INSTALLATION?
I HAVE A BODY SHOP THAT WILL REPLACE THE MOULDING, $ 50. WHAT IS THE BEST DIRECTION TO GO? THANKS BRYON

Not sure on your law and how did the glass company bill the insurance
if the insurance say they paid for it then my question is why the glass company didn't replace it
if glue was used it maybe better to remove the glass and clean the area good as the new molding may not fit and cleaning the glue may require a lot of work, the body shop should be Able to tell
good luck

Well yesterday they glued the moulding. The windsheild comes with an attached moulding but it didn't that good along the top. Most of the wind noise is gone. I still think the cowling on the bottom side where the wipers rest may not be correct causing some noise. Thankyou bryon
