    Yes, please update with whatever findings they report. The only other thing I can think of... is that my drivers door sits a tad 'low' when viewed from the outside, looking at the upper right corner of the door. Perhaps it's dropped a bit from daily use (opening/closing, etc)... and that's affected the way it seals. On the contrary, I've replaced the inner seal... and that'll didn't do anything...

    Ugh.

    Had the first oil change today and talked to the service writer about wind noise , she had one of the techs check all the weather seals, he found a small tear above rear passenger door and will order a complete replacement seal for that door under warranty. Will update again after seals are replaced and see if that helps eliminate some of the wind noise. Very happy with this service department. Schicker in Washington, Mo.

    My 18 bighorn sounds like the window is cracked at highway speeds. It has been to the dealer 6 times for the issue. I have had new weather stripping put in, new window seals, doors realigned, chrysler even did a "star campaign" which means they ask the engineers what the next fix should be, and they don't have a clue. it is the most irritating thing to listen to driving down the road. It is almost to loud to even hold a conversation with the passenger. Ram customer service is the worst! They tried to fix it 6 times because there is a problem, now they tell me its normal because the next obvious repair( new doors, dealer recommended) will be to expensive. Between the wind noise, and the shitty uconnect radios horrible sound quality and bluetooth connection, I dont enjoy driving my truck.

    If you find anything out please let me know, i am very interested.

    Myself, I hear a high pitched wind noise myself, was one of the first things I heard when I first drove my truck. Quite annoying... but if I reach out and manually fold the driver's side, side view mirror in then the noise goes away. I'm thinking I might try some tape to see if it really goes away or if just folding the mirror changed the airflow in a different way. If the tape works, then I'll likely put a bit of weather-stripping over the mirror joint.

    I took the mirrors off and put weather stripping around where mirror attaches to door,This helped a lot,probably take 5-10 minutes each mirror.I believe personally while driving on freeway the mirror flexes a little enough for a little air to get in there and create a little whistle.

    I'll have to give that a try, thanks.
