    Evening,

    I know as rattles and noises go the Leon has most of them at point in its life lol one I seem to have currently is a wind whistle at exactly 65mph and above outside the drivers door somewhere.

    Any good places to start? The wingmirror seems solid enough...

    It's quite annoying as you might expect.

    Any help would be great

    Cheers

    This might sound stupid but it works.

    Get someone to sit behind you on the motorway or something with a spray bottle filled with water. When you hear the noise, ask them to spray the door and window seals. If the seals are good, the water will just run down but if there’s a gap, the water will be forced out and you’ll see bubbles forming.

    Did this in an old corsa once and it worked a treat - turned out to be the door seal which was sagging slightly and needed to be replaced.
