Default Does anybody else get a whoosh noise from the passenger side mirror at speed?

I was in the front passenger seat and noticed some wind seeming to come through or make noise especially from the mirror area. The door panel is completely clipped in, as well as the mirror...

Is it possibly the antenna?

I always thought it was coming from the factory wheels, if you drop the back windows a bit the whoosh stops.

I wonder I you put up the rear window back up and vent out or close outside vent, if that makes a difference?

I had this issue on my 2001 Limited. Mine ended up being the door seal rubber even though it didn't sound like that's where it was coming from. I just harvested the rubber out of a 2003 PT and put it in for all four doors. Noise stopped.

PS: It was then that I noticed that the 2001 PT had colored rubber around the doors and the newer PT's did not. Just one more thing that made the 2001 PT special.
