Wind noise

Anybody else get wind noise from around the right hand/driver's side of the car somewhere around the upper driver's door area



I allways get it at around 60-70mph and it get really annoying. Can't any thing you of place and tried to push the door seal out a little more to improve things but no difference

There's certainly nothing noticeable
But I'd say it comming from the door seal as if I pull the handle to pull the door in the noise mostly goes away

Re: Wind noise

I had this and rattles !,cheapest thing to try first is some "gummi pfleg",it's a rubber seal conditioner,it may help but it will help with seal squeaks the second thing is to get a garage to check and adjust the door it may need pulling in a bit.

From what I remember the striker plate needs to be loosened quite a bit to allow it move,the other option is to get a garage to flex the upper door frame in slightly,I wouldn't advise doing this yourself incase it goes too far and causes damage

Tired that there's no way at adjust it the fixer thread's are solid and don't move
And the bolts are counter sunk so you have no adjustment as when tightening the bolts it pull the plate back to the center

Re: Wind noise

All striker plate are adjustable
Although you can only see countersunk torx head bolts the adjustment slots are hidden the plate itself with nuts in a sliding cage
loosen right of spray with WD 40 give the striker a tap with a mallet.....it will move
Once loose move the striker plate towards the inside of the door frame, that will then pull the door tighter against the door seal
I have done loads of these it will work!

The adjustment is in the striker plate on outside of door frame.

Re: Wind noise

At the end of the day ALL car striker plates ARE adjustable in all directions...They have to be as it's impossible for manufactures to get this spot on for correct door alignment
Give it another go!!!! it will move.....it's got to

And how do you adjust It when it bolts into the backing plate through the door pillar using countersunk torx bolts and allways center in the holes in the striker plate there do adjustment in ant area I can see
Unlike in other cars ice seen where the rear nuts/backing plate moves a small ammount

Re: Wind noise

Well Iíve never seen this before. It looks like Fiat have changed the adjustment to nil on the striker plate. So I would assume the adjustment would have to be on the lock mechanism on the door?
