    HI, I have a little problem with my 15 Tundra, nothing major. when I'm driving on the highway on a windy day I hear this really annoying sound coming from the passenger side windshield. I don't know what it is but it's really annoying and it only happens on a really windy day. So I took it to the dealer and they told me I'm not the first this is happen to. So they told me they fix it, so I was driving on the highway today and I could still hear it, maybe it's the seal on the windshield that needs replacement I don't know. I had a 96 and 01 Tacoma that did the same thing on a windy day but I never got it fixed so I never knew what it was, but my 06 Tacoma never did it. So has anyone experience this? Some advice would be grateful thanks.

    This is not my tundra but makes the exact same noise

    Had that issue on my 2011 Taco. Looked like it was a window seal and air came in whistling. Very annoying. It would make noise above a certain speed; windy day or not. Haven't had that issue with the Tundra yet.

    Same with my 2007 Tacoma. Not on my tundra that I've noticed.

    I have an annoying whistle on my driver side. I do have in channel weather tech rain guards . I was thinking the whistle was coming from them . Very annoying! Keep us posted if you find a fix thanks

    My Tundra does the same in high wind, more specifically a strong gust so it is intermittent. I found that the cab / doors does flex & it looses its seal between the cab & door temporarily. The seam is already tight but considering asking if the doors on can close any tighter on my next service

    I get a little howling/whisteling wind noise but nothing like that screaching sound.
    Mine sounds like it might come from the window rain guards but not really sure...maybe wind getting in from a weather seal?

    Driving in the wind sucks either way. I drove all day on a windy day last week with gusts around 45-50mph. Was happy to get home.

    I have the howling sound, drivers side when driving into a 20 mph wind at 75 mph down the interstate. Mine sounds like a deep howling sounding like coming from front bumper or wheelwell area though on the drivers side.

    So finally Toyota dealer called me to bring my truck in to change the moulding on the windshield, witch they say was causing the loud whistle on windy days while I was driving. So got my moulding changed and I was driving thru a very windy day on Sunday, and I didn't hear a sound :)
    The new moulding is flush with my windshield, the old one had a lip.
    But ofcorse I forgot to take a picture of the old moulding But no worries I took a picture of my neighbors tundra witch they haven't changed their moulding and theirs make noise while they drive on a windy day too.



    Here's my neighbors tundra same moulding I had on mine.

    Here's my new moulding very happy with it :)

    Do they remove the windshield or is the stripping just changed alone?

    I usually hear a loud intermittent noise, but only on the days I eat beans and chili. I wonder what it is. It usually accompanied by a foul smelling odor, that I need to open up the windows, then it goes away. Weird.
