Hi guys, Have annoying wind noise coming from both front windows the noise seems to come from an area just above the side rear view mirrors. Can't find anything wrong with the seals, is this normal for a Legacy(Liberty in Oz) did not find any info with a search. Cheers Ian

Yes, it is "normal"...and very annoying!

The seal on the mirror mount is the culprit. Roll the window down and squeeze, by hand, on both sides of the triangular mount to tighten the grip on the glass.
Next up, lift the mirror casing gently upward to tilt the mount in toward the door frame.

If this does help, get some soft rubber tubing or thick wire and slide it into the doorframe seal. Only the first 5-6inches, this will exert more pressure on the mirror mount hopefully making things quiet!

I have done all three and it works fine, expect on sub-zero mornings here in the northern hemisphere, because the seals are too stiff at -10 C :banghead:

I see in the Haynes manual a bit on adjusting the preload, but no indication on how to do it. I trust its obvious one you get the door trim off.:cornfuzz:

No, it is not obvious!

I would recommend replacing the "stab assy", part no. 62310AA010, which is a bracket mounted felt pad that pushes the window inward. There are two in each door, and you will need to remove the inner cladding to get at them. Removing the rubber trim/seal at the top of the door - single screw on the trailing edge, and slide it back - also helps access.

Do this before playing with the preload!

There is also an adjustment bolt below the mirror on the inside of the door that moves the channel/ mirror in and out this will fix the noise as well, i did this on mine A 92 liberty Awd sedan
