    Re: Wind whistle noise from front passenger side of vehicle

    I too am experiencing the ssmae issue with a whistling noise sstarting @62mph and up, most prevelant at 75. the advisor at the dealer the first trip told me it was normal from the mirror to make that noise but I also owned another 2012, same trim level and all that did not make the noise at all. i have the truck back at the dealer today because the whistling is so prevelant its un bearable. they me just now and told me they drove a brand new platinum and the same noise came from it. if there is a tsb on this unit can you let me know what it is so I can tell them or call them and let them know. The pickle im in is I actually work for the same auto group that I take the truck to... is there any help you can provide

    Re: Wind whistle noise from front passenger side of vehicle

    I also have a wind noise problem with my 2007 Escalade. dealer replaced inner door weatherstrip, no change. replaced outer door weatherstrip, no change. with my permission they adjusted(bent) in the door some, no change. i wonder is there a problem with mirror, the small triangular interior piece where mirror attaches- you can push forward on the plastic at front edge of glass and the noise stops, this is not a weatherstrip, but is there a gasket under that mirror that may be the culprit ? sound drives u crazy. i have read all i can find on here but havnt solved the problem.

    Replace the door outer reveal molding, the gasket has been torn or compressed and no longer seals the door frame. Tsb on that

    The reveal moulding is actually the black plastic part that fades, peels, etc. Its not a gasket.

    Ok guys, I had this noise until yesterday. Couldn't figure it out. On a separate project I removed the antenna and did a hidden antenna for a cleaner look. Noise gone! The damn antenna was making the noise.

    Wait - you have a "real" antenna? (had)
    Never realized the EXT's had those. I was thinking you got rid of the shark fin!

    So THAT got rid of your wind noise?

    Yes my EXT had a metal whip AM/FM antenna on the front passenger side. This is what was making the wind noise. Not the shark fin.

    Curious - did your antenna have a spiral going down (or up) it?
    If not, then yeah major wind noise, but if it did, there should not have been any. That's what the spiral is for.

    It did not have the spiral. And I thought that was strange as every GM truck I have owned prior did have it. I'm guessing it was not the original antenna.

    Probably an Autozone special lol

    Get the Escalade plastic panel and clean up the front, it will look better.
    Glad you solved your issue!

    Yes I already have the panel without the antenna home on it's way here. Once I install it maybe I will post pictures. The truck really looks much better without the antenna.
