At 45 mph I am usually just lifting the accelerator enough to grab 2nd gear and all I can hear is the exhaust note. I have no idea if mine whistles or not!

Turn your AC on high, take a spray bottle with water and an ounce of dishwash soap and spray around the area. If it leaks it will blow bubbles.
I assume I spray on the inside.
I get the concept from checking tire leaks but why the AC?

NO! I should have explained better. lol.

When you close up the car and turn the AC on high you are pressurizing the cabin. Spray the soapy mixture around the putside weatherstrips for the window and mirror. If there is a leak it will bubble just like when you check a leaky tire on a bike.

LOL thanks for clarifying.
I was thinking spray on the inside and drive fast to force the air in. Yours seems much easier ;-)

The dealership fixed it but I wish I had more info for you. When I first went in they heard it and scheduled an appointment with someone they called the "wind doctor" (no joke) for the following week. He specialized in automotive wind noise.

He had the car for the day and when I picked it up they didn't have a report from him. They said they'd mail information for my records. It was fully covered under warranty. He did leave a hard plastic tool in the car with an angled edge on each side. My guess is that was used to redo the seals.

If/when I get more info I'll let you know.

Looks like the wind noise is coming from the Drivers side/A-Pillar front rubber seal/window guide.
No water leaks,but annoying wind noise over 50 MPH.Drivers side only.

That's exactly same on my EB. My doors were out of alignment and I thought it comes from the doors. Still when I am driving it comes from the top left window corner. If it is windy outside, it gets annoying. Looks like Ford has to fix some things on my first service. :eek:
