    I recently purchased a 10 limited & anything above 55mph there is a significant amount of wind noise. (Wind rushing as if it were really high gusty winds outside) i thought it was coming from the windsheild because thats what it sounds like & the used dealership i bought it from had just replaced the windshield, so i thought maybe it was a poor install. I took it to my local glass shop & he disected it but said it appeared to be a good install with decent glass & couldnt find a problem. These explorers arent just this noisy are they? Maybe sunroof? But it sounds more like the windshield.

    On my car I get wind noise from the passenger side window if I roll it down a little bit the noise will go away.

    Same here....On my X comes from right side.. Seems from passenger side mirror area. I read some where here its maybe the black weather stripping that goes around windshield. The high wind makes the weather stripping flap. Im going to make a video next time its windy. For the sound to happen I need 30-35+ mph winds. My 2 cents is that the side mirrors catching the wind.

    Behind the door panels is a black poly something or other wind and moisture barrier. Its precisely attached to the door with butyl tape. Perhaps in the vehicles past somebody has take it off to replace a speaker, window motor, etc and didn't get it properly resealed or have fouled the tape. Only takes a few minutes to pull the door panels to have a look. You can get butyl tape at any home improvement store and search youtube for speaker replacement videos to learn how to remove the panel.

    i get the same wind noise passenger side. It turns out to be the rubber seal the glass sits in, it pulls away from the door channel. Temp fix is I'll roll down the window and if i push it back with the palm of my hand its stops for a while. I just might break out the silicon. . .

    yup, its probably the rubber that the window sits in. I fixed mine by rolling the windows down, pulling the rubber off the door, running a bead of adhesive silicone and rolling the window back up.
