Common complaint on Saab 9-5's that have had a new screen fitted. 2 most common complaints are a pattern windscreen that is a couple of mm taller than an OE one. This extra 2mm protrudes above the roofline and whistles at speed. The other cause is a lazy windscreen fitter who practices what is called "slotting", they remove the bonding compound from the top and sides of the screen but don't clear the lower channel correctly and "slot" the screen in on top of the old bondo, this has the same effect as a screen that is too tall and causes whistling.
