    For a good month this super high pitched whistling sound started on the driver's side door at highway speeds. It would literally drive me insane, equivalent to fingers on chalk board.

    Checked all weather stripping and found this along the window trim.


    The rubber wasn't pressing against the window anymore at random points.

    Fix: With the window rolled all the way down, I jammed thin wooden skewers in between the two rubbers forcing the bowed areas against the window. Then I carefully used a heat gun on low along the rubber to flex and keep it in the forward position. Let cool, remove the skewers and it maintained it's shape pressing against the windshield. No more noise.

    Hope this helps someone with a similar issue. First make sure it's not something else then inspect that trim. Good luck!
