Default Wind noise coming from driver side door

Hi there guys,

So like I had mentioned in another post here I recently bought a Black 2005 Pt Cruiser GT High Output Convertible...

I have only ONE problem with it that is driving me a little nuts... It does not happen all the time just every now and then...

On the driver side, in the door sounds like -just below the window- in the door frame when driving at a moderate speed (60km/h) is a windy sound. It sounds like something is not sealed correctly and is letting wind either in which is causing the sound or the wind is hitting something which is causing that sound.

Just curious if this is a problem anyone else has had or heard of?

Thanks.

I find it ironic that the colors red, white, and blue stand for freedom until they are flashing behind you.

Whoa! SWEET!!

I have plenty of sound deadening material. I'll stuff all that in there. I have some annoying noise coming from the passenger side. May as well do both sides.

Thanks mate! I'll try to take pictures for you guys on my 2006 base pt cruiser.
