I am getting a high pitch whistling noise that starts above 40mph by the driver's side window. It sounds like a window leak, so i placed electrical tape over the top of the window glass and closed it, then drove to 40mph, but the noise is still there...any ideas? Also, the care does have a moonroof, but the sound doesn't appear to be coming from that area, more like it's coming from the driver's side window. Thanks! Read Answers
