How to Fix Whistling Noise in Your Car (Door Seal)


one, two, three, four! Rev up your engines! It’s time for the Scotty Kilmer Channel today I’m going to show how to stop
whistling sounds in your car, now of course realize whistling sounds that
occur while you’re driving a car you got to figure out where they’re coming from
so get a small video camera or any phone that can make videos bring it with you
and turn it on and when it starts whistling move it around so you can
pinpoint where the sounds coming from there’s the sound now I notice that the
sound got the loudest when I went at the seam of the door where the door meets
the frame and even though it might not look it, this car is 10 years old and
often the rubber seal on the door will go bad so we’ll inspect that first and
when we check it out I can find parts that are really squished and they’re not
resilient they don’t come back and have rips and tears in them so we’re going to
change the door seal now I’ve bought the whole seal assembly when I was a kid I
used to try to patch it using Universal rubber sealer and putting it on but it
never lasted long so just bite the bullet and spend 40 or 50 bucks buy a
whole door seal know as you can see on the new seal there’s a bunch of clips
that snap in place so to get the old one off you basically just pull it off just
start at the top and pull it down and as you carry it off you’ll see sometimes
the pieces that all in place stick in we’ll just pull those off with pliers
later and then when you get to the final part on the inside of the door in the
front you’ll notice the stoppers in the way so you have to bolt that and get it
out of the way to get it off, then you unbolt that then you can get the whole weather
stripping off then you slip the new door seal behind it and bolt it back on and
then pull off all the plastic clips that are in the way, they just snap out now
the top side doesn’t have clips, it snaps into the groove so you feed it so
it feeds right into the groove here the whole way down then you snap all these
snaps in there holes snap them all in one at a time and don’t
forget to do all the bottom and the ones on the inside of the door then do a
last-second check to make sure everything is snapped in correctly then we take it for
a spin and voila no more wind whistling noise
it’s fixed so if you want to stop whistling noises in your car now you
know how to do it, and remember if you got any car questions just visit the Scotty
