Cockpit noise

My 2017 FR3 has wind noise when traveling 60 MPH and over. The dealership said the noise was caused by the drain holes in the window frames. Has anyone else experience this?

I see and understand your question.

I don't have an FR3 but wondered as an experiment, could you temporarily tape over the holes to see if it reduces the noise?

this must be an obviously louder than normal noise for you Gary, as we are pushing a huge wall air across our windshield. I expect this, but perhaps what you are referring to is more than normal?

I see your question now Gary. There will be some noise coming through the small drain holes at the bottom of the driver and passenger slide windows. From what I've read on this forum, some hear more than others. About the only way to cure it is to apply some tape (I used Gorilla tape cut into small pieces) on the outside of the window.
If the noise is coming from somewhere else, you'll need to do some investigating.
