roof flex in strong winds

I was driving over the West Gate bridge in Melbourne today and it was blowin' really hard. The roof of my XR wagon started to flex and make some really loud noises.

Has anyone else experienced this?

Re: XR Cabin heat

This was supposed to be in your other post
Check to see if temp control lever when set to cold is closing the flap inside the heater box fully.

1. find the adjusting bracket on the heater box which the temp control cable is clamped to and see which way it moves when operating the hot/cold dash lever.
2.set control lever to cold
3.loosen bracket holding outer cable and move the lever on the heater in the direction for cold.
4.tighten clamp and check for full dash lever movement.
It might take a couple of goes to get it right, while your down there check all cables for correct adjustment.
Theres also the issue of the foam seals they use being perished and leaking air and that can only be fixed by removing the heater and rebuilding it.you could always disconnect the heater hoses over summer while you sort it out if adjusting the cables fails to fix it.
