EB doors & wind noise

Just took the olds EB out for a run on the highway, and the wind noise from the top of the doors in damn near deafening, u can actually feel the window frame moving in and out.. Is this a common problem? whats the cure? apart from the obvious new door rubbers?

Re: EB doors & wind noise

Check that the window frame is as close to body as rest???
If not you can carefully bend frame in alittle...
Best to place something in door like book and push / bend frame in..Carefull though too much and window will come out of tracks when winding up....
If gap is nearly all same ?? As said fit new rubbers or try adjusting door lock / jam closer so door shuts closser to body....hth

Don't be afraid to try something new. Remember, amateurs built the Ark...Professionals built the Titanic!

Make sure the window is down first. The early E series cars had a lot of body twist. My EA used to twist while cornering and the door gaps would open at the top as well. The only way to stop this from happening is to strengthen the body by bolting in a well designed roll cage or seam welding the body.
