The moderators might want to make this a Sticky to keep all this info in one place. Just a thought.
It is always being asked and now there are Multiple posts on this same issue.

Here's all the links to posts in this forum on the 07 Wind Noise Issue.
Included in some of these posts are the Bulletins and actually a PDF copy of one of them.
The Dealers know about the Bulletins and you have to Insist they track them down if they tell you other wise.
As far as getting the work done using the the Bulletin ( at the dealer or otherwise ) and having it fix the Issue is another story.
All the info is in these links.

This is just some of the info in these posts:

They claim that they didnt find anything on my truck when I took it in, but it has been gone since then. I have no wind noise just the sweet exhaust sound

They may have just put silicone or weatherstripping grease on the weatherstripping, this will make it more quite for a while and keep the wind noise down

I purchased an '07 last month and heard all the wind noise out of the passenger side. Brung it in and they said they replaced the weatherstripping in the door. Now it sounds worse. Has anyone ever had that happen?

Take it back to the dealer.... I heard some positive stories when the door was adjusted...I have been looking to take mine to do the same but was afraid that I would get the same outcome you got.....will call my dealer for feedback and post the outcome...I wanted to test drive a new 2010 or 2011 at the dealer for a reference...good luck

Question, has anyone heard this in a newer model? I have a 2010 EXT and it sounds like the driver window isn't completely up... happened about a month into owning it, just haven't taken it in. I expect that's what I'll need to do but would like to hear if this was limited to just the 2007 models.

I took it back in again, they had it for 3 days. They said the first time he had put too much foam in the mirrors and took it out. I asked if they were sure the sound is gone now, and they said yes. I drive it home, and I still hear it!!! What would you guys suggest? It's still under factory warranty and has only 36K miles on it. My original thought is to take it to a different cadillac dealer to see if they can find it. My father says to take it back to the same dealer and don't let them get away. I guess I am just wondering if another dealer would have better experience. Thoughts???

Good to know. I think this time on checkout, I will have someone ride with me on the highway before we say it is good to go. The last two times I just assumed they fixed it before leaving.

OK. So they fixed it for the passenger side, but now that I don't hear that wind noise, I can hear wind noise coming from the back of the vehicle!?? It is on the passenger side of the vehicle, but not sure if it is coming from the rear passenger door (glass), or the stationary glass on the passenger side. Has anyone had wind noise from the rear doors or side windows??

2007 ESV, the rear lift glass has wind noise and whistles above 60mph when pulling a trailer. There is a GM Tech Service Bulletin 06-08-66-012C for Escalade, Yukon, Suburban and Tahoe. It calls for replacing the rear glass, weatherstrip, rubber bumpers and then adjust latch.

I called my local Cadillac dealer a week ago and left a full message with my cell number on their Service Line since all their reps were busy. Have not heard boo from them yet on the issue.

Wind noise is not covered by extended warranty, so has anyone found a do-it-yourself fix for what GM calls "glass lift"? Any ideas on how to adjust and tighten the rear lift glass so that it makes better contact with the rubber seal?
