2019 Limited Treasure Hunt

I doubt anyone else will see this issue but the point is not to doubt yourself and assume things are done right, I've had nothing but bad luck with my new truck, I'm fussy yes, but when troubleshooting aircraft for a living most prefer this handicap haha..
I knew I had a noise in my truck, not a wind whistle but a gap or hole of some sort that I could hear at speed or when the wind was on the passenger side. Some could hear it, some could care less lol, it drove me nuts but I found it... You can use your own judgment....
Narrowed it down to about 2" space on the rear window, I had to pull the clamp out that holds the rear slider window cable, there is was.. A defective or damaged rear window casing and the " Hole " in my truck that sounds like like distorted speaker at speed.....

Cheers.

I have the same noise, coming from the same area.
Thanks for tracking this noise down....when I can get around to it, I will see if mine is the same.

I hate taking vehicles back to the dealer for certain things...this being one!
I'm sure if I did it would end up being noisier...or the window would leak during a rain shower.

Do you plan on sealing it with silicone or ?

I wish I could add photos to posts...but this site won't let me upload any!

Try the Tapatalk app. Makes uploading pictures a piece of cake.

I know, it would be there for 3 days as kid who could care less tore the truck apart and would be worse off. if you take an air gun and run it around that area you might find it. It happened to be blowing bloody murder here last week so I was able to compare both sides, I thought it was the air vents on the back of the cab, but they were working fine.
Dealer wants to see it, do I want them cutting the back window out? not a chance.... I will not let them fix it and will use 2 part epoxy, currenting the paper towel stuffed in there is working just fine...haha

This literally sounded like a speaker being turned up with static when the wind hit that side of the truck.

I was able to drag and drop my pics.... super simple..
