I'm about at my wits end. I have a whistling wind noise on the driver's side window anytime the car is over 50 mph. I've had my Murano back to the dealer twice (2 hour round trip). They kept it overnight both nights in order to order parts. The first time they replaced the entire seal around the door. Didn't work. The second time, they replaced the seal/jam around the door that the window fits into. Didn't work.
I've contacted the dealer again by email, but no answer yet.
I do want to say the dealer has been great to work with and I love every other single thing about my Murano.
My son buys parts for Honda/Acura and mentioned the door may have to be replace.
Any advice would be very much appreciated!
Determined source of driver window, wind noise on my 2017.5 Murano. By design, lower rubber window seal is not fitted/molded to fit up to window tocreate tight seal. It has 1/8 gap between rubber and window. The wind whistles/jamsinto opening at about 70 mph. I confirmed after taping gap (painterís tape) andtesting on road for a quiet ride. Dealer agrees but might require aftermarketbody/window shop to manually fit a window seal.
I had all four door panels off this past weekend to replace my speakers on my 2017.5. On all doors the inside rubber seal that presses against the glass was complete and there were no gaps anywhere for air to leak thru.
Dealer is clueless! Manufacturer makes car with only one door where the seal is not set against the glass to seal the air out, in one spot! RIGHT!!! You've heard of having smoke blown up your butt right, well that's what this dealer is doing! As soon as he said that, I would have asked "How come all the other windows aren't made that way?".
If the dealer has already replaced the seals and it still left the gap, two things:
1. Dealer didn't change the seal! Did you actually see them do this or did you notice a obvious difference in the seal when you got it back.
2. Door was assembled incorrectly at the factory, causing the seal to gap in that location.
Since is seems to me that the dealer is trying to dismiss it at this point by directing you to an aftermarket solution (On a car under warranty), I would be contacting Nissan. File a complaint on their web site, stating all facts of the case as you know it. Be sure to put that you were directed to an aftermarket solution for an oblivious manufacturing defect.
Nissan Corp is pretty good, as long as you're persistent in your case. Good luck and let us know the results.
Have a good day.
