Cool Roof wind noise

Aloha,

I have a 2005 XLR with under 50K miles.
I recently started to hear a wind noise from the diver's left corner of roof.
It started at about 70mph and slowly got worst over the year so not it's making noise at 45mph and up.

I suspect it is a roof seal issue, causing air to flow into roof corner causing such noise.

Anyone else familiar with this issue?

Any assistance/recommendations here would be appreciated.

Mahalo,

Pua

If you are hearing wind noise in the cabin you do in fact have a roof panel seal issue have it checked. there is a possibility that the panel will separate at high speeds.
