Wind Noise !!?

Five door JTD/ELX Punto.

I found my car quit noisey(used to it now!!) Tracked some of it down to window seals.Previous owner must have thought it was air vents as they had been pulled out and badly re fitted
I first bought wind deflectors from Fiat,26 seemed good buy to me, easy to fit too. This helped a bit but still had wind noise.Secondly, I have cut foam strips,15 x 5mm, fitted these up inside the channel, centrally under the rubber lips.
Down the motorway at 75 mph I couldn't believe the difference!! I know it is a bit of a botch but it definately worked on my car.

Safe Motoring

Re: Wind Noise !!?

I've come to a point where if I hear a weird noise in a Fiat, I think nothing on it. Gives 'em character, that's why I love them so much!

Well done for finding out the problem though

Re: Wind Noise !!?

Yes, the wind deflectors are good. They keep rain out when slightly open and not just as noisey as open window. Not badly priced for fiat either.I still cant believe the change in noise level !! I think maybe the channel is too big and seal too small.
