So what's it's name? I have tried finding it in online parts places, no luck, and I don't have the bit of the manual that covers "it", whatever "it" is called...You can look at the service manual for how to remove but those sorts of things are normally not adjustable, although perhaps you could use some washers or something, also I doubt that's the source of noise.
Thank you, I'll have a look around to see if ail panel rings a bell... EDIT: A quick look only returns information on the triangle plastic part that is IN the car, on the inside of the side mirror, not the part that is forward of the mirror on the OUTSIDE. Did you mean the outside part? I did...If that piece was part of the door, like it is on most cars (where the side view mirror mounts) it's called a sail panel, like on a sail boat.
You can try to gain access to the back of it by removing the interior A-Pillar trim (the uprights from the dash to the headliner) & see if there's any exposed nuts.
I have to agree with DD, if it stuck *out* from the A-pillar, I could see it making noise, being recessed, I doubt it.
Edit: The rear most pillar or panel behind the rear doors that attach the rear 1/4 panel to the roof is also known as a sail panel, but is usually referred to as the canopy sail panel.
Honestly, I don't know. What I do know is that on our previous car, a 2000 Subaru Legacy, a similar part could cause a lot of noise if it was off by a couple of millimeters. (see here for details... What Is That Wind Noise In My Subaru? - Seattle Subaru Repair )Do you still think you're getting noise from there?
You will probably discover the doors are in alignment with a little of the trailing edge sticking out. If it's causing this much aggravation, how about a body shop?Another thing I forgot is adjusting the doors: The back of the front doors on our van stick out and the weatherstrip there is not pushed against the body much.
We have a misunderstanding: I like to fiddle. Giving someone else money to fiddle does not give me as much pleasure as fiddling myself.You will probably discover the doors are in alignment with a little of the trailing edge sticking out. If it's causing this much aggravation, how about a body shop?
There's also those Leak Doctor guys I see around here & there. Check with any local car dealer, these guys are mobile.
