The microfilter housings seem tight and where the ducts from these housings go through the firewall are tight. I don't feel any air movement through the dash ducts (or any other ducts) when this sound is present. The blower works fine and moves air where it's supposed to go when I turn it on. The windshield has never been replaced and looks fine. The sound begins at about 30 mph and gets louder the faster I go. It's pretty annoying. Any ideas?
even though they may be tight that doesnt mean they arent letting the air in .remove them and check for missalignment or broken seals
