So I have an 07 forester and noticed lately that I'm getting a significant amount of wind noise from the side mirrors. Its fairly equil side to side and I was wondering if this is normal for this vintage and if anyone has ever tried fixing it some

So your saying it's the door seals? I'll have to pay closer attention. And about the user information.... I have my phone, that's it. I'm not able to update any of it.

@Bobert1850 that's too bad. The user information displays under your avatar every time you make a forum post. To see all the user tools, you will need a computer or laptop. Take a look at the information under my avatar. The information there could mean getting a prompt reply to your questions or not... :icon_eek:

Actually, there's a thread that addresses that noise from the door seals: :wink:

Mine was the door gussets. Didn't matter how much tape or foam weatherstripping I applied to the doors, it was the mirror gussets on mine. Replaced them and quiet as can be

Using the window to pull the door open and closed stresses the triangular gusset and causes wind noise. My Forester is quiet at high speed. That's because have been the only driver since new and do not touch the window glass.
