:crazy:

As you may notice from my threads of the past, noises do my head in. My car's a Megane II Sport Tourer with fixed roof rails.

The following noise, is currently doing my head in...:

At speeds between 30mph & 60mph there's a humming wind noise coming from the rear drivers side area, which is completely wind-dependant, if that makes sense. It only occurs when windy and is not a bearing (both rears are new anyway) or anything mechanical.

I thought at first it may have been the fuel filler cap - I applied some silicone grease around the seal which didn't help so it isn't that.

Then I thought it may be the roof rails, but the plugs in the top of the roof rails are neatly in place and there's nowhere that wind can get in.

Then I thought it may be the sunroof, but my last Megane Sports Tourer (which did not have a sunroof) had exactly the same noise.

I'm now thinking it may be coming from under the car, or maybe wind is getting in around the rear door handle? I CANNOT find it!!

It's definitely coming from towards the rear because I can hear it very clearly and louder when I open the rear drivers side window.

I wondered if anyone else has had this problem or if anybody had any suggestions?

Please help, any ideas at all would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks,
Andy

I've sealed the little holes on the roof rails...and also a little hole in the seal of the panel underneath the roof rails.

So it's not them.

Can anybody help? Ever heard of this problem before?

AAAAGGH!
