Had a lot of rattling with Hehr sliders on driver/pass sides. The dealer in Tampa installed a kit from Hehr that tightened everything up and stopped the rattling. Was on a 351 2014 GT.

The rattling could be coming from the screen and someone posted that they took some black tape around the edge and it tightened the fit and you could bot see the tape. May help if that is the area.

Took screens out several months ago, must be some kind of felting that can be put in the window track to help with the noise

Bought a roll of 1/2 inch Poly Foam Caulk Saver at Home Depot. Inserted it into the window frame at the rear where there is a large void and the window doesn't seal. Still had a small gap so I put in a second piece on top of the first. Closed the window and locked it (pretty tight when first installed) and the foam has formed a nice seal around the glass when the window is closed. Also removed the screens and stored them under the mattress in the overhead bunk. Eliminated the rattle and dropped the wind noise to almost zero.

Forest River window fix

Our windows were impossibly noisy. Forest River instructed dealer to use fuzzy side of velcro in the tracks. Worked pretty well. Still need to mess with the passenger side a bit, but now I know what to use.

If it is wind noise and not a rattle it probably is coming from
the weeping holes. To prove it take electrical tap and cover
the small slots you will see on the window outside at the bottom of the window.

If this reduces or eliminates the noise purchase weeping hole covers.

Do not leave the tap on, the holes are there to drain water from the window.
