Wind noise from O/S 'B' post.......

Posted (edited)

Whilst driving solo (the majority of my trips) I have the radio switched on and no wind noise apparent.

However, with my wife alongside and no radio on, there is wind noise from the O/S 'B' post above 50 mph. Curiously, today at about 65 mph - no wind noise! I suspect the wind was in a different direction hence the lack of wind noise.

Anyone else noticed this?

I’ve not experienced noise for the B post.  What I have had is that the passenger door window was very slightly open and I mean very slightly. The noise was very apparent at certain speeds, pulled into a lay-by and checked the door, opened and closed the window, noise went away.

I get loads of wind noise at any speed above 55mph. Comes from everywhere. Not at all quiet.

Can't say I get much wind noise that I particularly notice, but tyre noise yes sometimes unless the road surface is pretty smooth.

I may try to grease the seals to see if it makes any odds.

Gummi pflege stick is a great rubber seal lubricator and allows the seals to sit in good contact.

Toyota cars usually has less door seals than other brands. Here two pictures of recent Evs and you can see while Toyota has top part of the door shut insulated , the lower portion it is not. Basically the most road and wind noise intrusion comes from the doors and around the door shuts, windows. 👍

However the PHEV has noise insulating glass in the front door windows and, I understand, further additional soundproofing elsewhere. I do clearly recall when I test drive a HEV the rear road noise was bad however the PHEV is much quieter, if not upto Volvo PHEV standards. In my V60 PHEV I could cruise at 100mph (autobahns) without unduly turning up the radio or significant road noise. I doubt the RAV will be anywhere near as quiet.
