Wind noise

Hi,
I get a lot of wind noise coming through the front doors (the front passenger more than driver door)

How do I fix this? Do I replace the seals around the door? How much/difficult is this to do?

Thanks,

PS The hesitation prob i've been having has gone away on it's own again. Can't be stuffed with it right now so i'm just leaving it be

I have that problem too, but it's from my drivers door too. I was going to replace the door seals, but that costs money i dont have at the moment! Any suggestions to both of us would be appreciated!

usually the door striker plates need adjusting....you will need a torx head scew driver...loosen the screws..tap the plate in towards the interior of the car, retighten and test

Lets go find that Hotdog tree I planted

if you are in any doubt at all...mark around the striker plate before loosening the screws so you can put it back where it was if it doesnt work.

Thanks, I'll give this a try too. If I stuff it up will it stop the door from shutting all together? Or will it just be harder to close?

Yeah do what Six says it fixed my problem you may need to redrill the alignment hole to move it in a bit more but thats ok.
It's easy to do and will more than likly fix it.

One last question. Will it noticeably stop my doors from looking flush with each other?

Only if you go in too far...which I have found impossible with the original holes. Mine are in as far as they can go without elongating the holes and the doors sit flush
