confused Windscreen noise on BA

I have a Nov 02 build XR6T and am experiencing some sort of aerodynamic noise, either at speeds of 140 or more, or in rare cases of high on-coming wind at 100-110. I was wondering if anyone else has encountered this? Not sure what to tell the dealer, it seems a little unreasonable to ask them to jump on the freeway and floor it!

You are not alone in experiencing this problem. Do a search on fordxr6turbo and you'll find many other examples of this. I think some guys have had it fixed - an issue with the window seal.

known common fault ... get your dealer to replace the windshield seal (the single piece seal, not the two part seal)

good luck

forced induction at 7000rpm .... it says it all

xr6t ute (289rwkw and fast) & blown Mustang Cobra (347 rwkw and faster)
