Windshield Wind Noise "Honking" Specific to '08 GC & T&C
While I did find information in other threads within the forum, the threads seem to have diverted into other areas of interest, which for others with this specific issue, will not be relative. I'm hopeing a seperate post will be more effective. (Moderator, your welcome to move my previous replies to this post).
On Wednesday, July 3rd, I spoke to the Chrysler engineer that worked this issue. The cause is the gap and/or flap of rubber moulding between the "A-pillars" and each side of the windshield. The fix, as you may read in other posts, is an application of silicon into that gap, and evidently under the thinner flap of the moulding material that lays against the pillar.
After my conversation with Chrysler, I forwarded an email to the engineer regarding my experiences with various "5-Star" dealers, trying to verify this issue and get a technical service bulletin reference. Until I heard from Chrysler, I had only received inconsistent and incomplete information; some service writers couldn't find any information on "wind noise" with the van......this in the face of two other national issues; roof rack and sunroof.
I'm waiting to hear from the engineer at Chrysler with a firm Tech Service Bulletin number, so that I can share this with others in our corporation who are driving the same vehicle, and have had similar difficulties getting a resolution.
