If you have a sunroof, that may be the source. When you go through a speed bump or a pot hole really fast, it causes it to pop up just a little bit. It happened to me with my 1996 SLE.
The solution would be to open and reclose the sunroof.

My sunroof doesn't make noise at all, it'* the damn doors and windshield that'* the problem. Windshields not a big deal, because I got full glass coverage.....So someday when I feel like it I'll get it replaced. But the doors......My drivers door is bent at the top, and I think the rest of the other seals are just worn out maybe?

Hey, she'* 5'3".

It'* not the sunroof.

Sunroofs have more water leaking problems than wind noise I believe.

That is too freakin' funny!!!! With a comment like that I can see why the alert stays on red all the time.

I don't have much wind noise on my 91 at all.
