Fixing a wind noise problem.

What are the chances of the dealer actually trouble shooting and fixing a wind noise problem that I have in my 2010 Ford Super Crew. I have tried to determine exactly where itís coming from by taping up the door seems and the outer edge of the windshield and then going for a drive down the highway but I still canít figure out where itís coming from. Itís a whistling sound that I can hear clearly while driving down the highway with the radio off.

Iím open to suggestions.

Thanks,
twenty_over

Do you have a bugshield or vent visors? On the '09+ those things can really make a racket.

Yes, I do have both. It wasn't problem with my 2001, but I know that since this truck is a different design it could be the problem, I'll have to experiment more.

Thanks.

I have the standard mirrors, not the towing type. It sounds like it's coming from the windshield but I ruled that out. As far as the area of the noise I'd say driverís side. I did look around the firewall area but didnít see anything amiss. I'll keep searching for the source and if I find it I'll post.

Thanks.

Remove the bug shield and see what happens . . .

Your 2001 has no relevance.

Or just have the radio playing, if it's only a small whistling noise.

Big ole Truck -

Did you ever get your wind noise issue fixed? Curious because I just bought a used 2010 Super Crew and have a similar issue.

I have the same problem with my 2010 F250 as well. It is coming from the drivers side but can't pin point the exact location. No bug shield or vent visor.
Drives me crazy. seems to only happen a highway speed and when it is very windy out side??

FYI, I determined that the wind noise was in fact caused by the shield. I have not changed or removed it because I really like the way it looks, but in a few years when it most likely fades I will buy another brand.

Good luck to you other folks who are trying to solve your wind noise problems.

What brand bugshield do you have? I was thinking about getting one.

I have the same exact problem with my 2010 Screw. I only hear the whistling at 65 mph or above and not consistently. I never noticed this until after I put on the bugshield. So I am assuming the bugshield is the culprit.

OH! and by the way, "DO NOT LET THE DEALERSHIP TOUCH YOUR TRUCK UNLESS ABSOLUTELY NECESSARY." They will screw up it up more.

I have the AVS Bug Shield (http://www.streetsideauto.com/p/auto...flector-23009/). It looks great but next time around I will try another brand, I think Ford makes one so maybe I'll go that route.

I figured out that it was the shield by taping up the gap between the hood and the shield with wide blue painters tape and took it for a ride down the highway, with the gap all sealed up the wind noise had stopped.

best of luck to ya,

Unhappy The wind noise is driving me crazy.

My 2010 F-150 Super cab has a terrible wind noise coming from the windshield in the middle but a little towards the passenger side. The dealer had a windshield company take it out and reseal it. It made it a little better for awhile but is now getting worse. It is a hissing noise. I do have a factory installed bug shield.
