'08: whistling noise coming from window?

hi gang,
i got a '08 SES 4-door. i notice as im driving down the highway sometimes i hear a annoying air whistling noise that is either coming from the driver window seal or somewhere near my dash, (i cant really seem to exactly pinpoint it yet) anyone notice the same thing on your '08?

thanks!
S

Ive noticed it on mine to when I have the radio turned down low.It sounds like you have the window cracked or something.I was wondering if it may have been the sunroof but im not sure.I know that ford has been having problems w/the 08's window seal.Mine is pinched under the glass and Wont come out so I have to take it to the dealer.It does have a lot of wind noise.My miata had less wind noise even with the top down!

My '08 SES does the same thing. Since I have window deflectors, the dealer says I will have to take them off before they can find the noise. I had the deflectors on 2 months before the noise BUT, they ignore this. I thought I read a thread in here where someone filled the area behind the side view window mirror plastic trim panels with foam to eliminate this.

My sisters both have 08 Focus's and have the same problem with the window seals. My wife and I also have 08 Focus's and haven't had any problems with ours...weird.
