Weather stripping that is damaged or that is not installed properly can result in wind noise when the owner drives the car at high speeds.

Quarter window vertical seals attach vertically to the front edge of the vehicle’s quarter window. They seal the door’s glass to the quarter window on hardtops and convertibles.

Windshield seals surround the entire windshield and are often U-shaped and made of a piece of rubber that is either hollow or solid. They are attached with screws, adhesive or clips.
