Exclamation Wind noise

Just bought a 2008 jeep wrangler unlimited 4 door. Noticed there is a loud wind noise coming from the drivers side upper corner. Noticed the previous owner placed weather striping in the area, but it does not help. Thoughts?

Would appreciate any help.

Thx

Soft top or hard top?

Change the plastic header out for a metal one. Should be available from the dealer.

I am not familiar with what you are calling the plastic header. I think there is only rubber around the door

Was referring to the soft top. That's usually an issue.

Try re-adjusting the top. Loosen it and then tighten the front latches first and then rear then sides. It actually makes a difference. I've heard of people using silicon spray or laying down wax paper on the attachment points.
