Kazoo in windshield?
While driving at 68 mph or faster, I have a very loud vibrating sound coming from the area of the driver's side A column. It is coming from outside the car but can be heard inside, about halfway up the column.
The previous owner of my 2000 OBW had the windshield replaced, which is what I assume is causing the noise. It seems to be a harmonic vibration (I know all sound is a vibration of air), that starts when air is passing over something outside of the car. It is worse on windy days. I liken it to the sound of a kazoo played through a 1,000 watt amp.
Has anyone else had this problem? Does anyone think it could be something else besides the windshield replacement - perhaps some trim coming loose? Any suggestions on how to stop it? Some sort of sealant that will not screw up the existing seal or look like crap?
