Default Air noise coming from window seals? (99' 996 coupe)

I have a bit of air noise coming from the windows while driving at higher speeds. I've searched pelican parts and cannot seem to locate anything that looks like the seals where the top of the windows meets the roof. Any suggestions would be much appreciated!!

Thank you.

A cheap first step would be to apply a little Gummi Pfledge and see if it doesn't help create a better seal. https://www.pelicanparts.com/catalog...einszt_pg5.htm

I use some spray on silicone to lube my seals. That being said, there are two plastic plugs under the door that allow you to access the bottom regulator bolts that adjust how tight the window seats against the seal. I think moving the bottom of the regulator just a tad outboard moves the top part of the window tighter against the seal. if I remember correctly.....

It's probably an adjustment issue. Check out step 6 of this guide:

+1 for the Gummi Pfledge by Nextzett. Awesome stuff even if you do end up adjusting your windows. Excellent product. Even 303 Aerospace treatment is better than nothing.

When I bought my 996, the tint was beginning to lift at the edges. I was getting wind noise from the tint film folding over in the seal, creating a small air channel. Just thought I would throw that out there before you drop $$$ on a seal. Good luck!

I get a bit of noise too but always thought it was that little cover that the roof rack attaches to.
