Hi,

I got a 2013 Sport Unlimited few days ago, going 55mph or above there are air whistling thru driver side hard-top:
- How common?
- MFG warranty?
Advise please.

Out of curiosity did you just switch from the soft top? The reason I ask is because when you make the swap the wind noise becomes very noticeable but you get used to it after a while. If your really worried, pull the tops off and put them back on, but it will leak before it becomes a more serious issue, so if its not leaking then you should be fine.

Check all your seals make sure everything is sitting right and straight. I have no whistles or hardly even any wind noise with mine.

Take both tops off, wipe all the seals down with a damp cloth, carefully reinstall. Sounds like something isn't aligned right. Or you have a leaking door seal maybe. Is it coming from the windshield? Behind you? From over the door?

As stated, reinstall the freedom panels. Do not over tighten the 2 screws that secure the freedom top to the cross bar.

hmmmm ......
I had a wind rushing noise also.
Mine was coming from the drivers side lower windshield.
What it turned out to be was that the gasket from the windshield to where it sits against the windshield frame was TWISTED. I could actually FEEL the air coming in after 45 mph. Have someone come with you and have them feel all
along the windshield frame inside the Jeep.

I also just bought '07, 3 piece hard top with significant wind noise at highway speeds. I am trying fix positioning, not much success, is there any product to increase the seal on weather stripping?
