Caddy 4 Wind noise

Post by Grantek » Sat Mar 21, 2020 4:52 pm

Hi all, anyone experienced wind noise in caddy 4 from what sounds like it’s at the windscreen? Not usual wind noise at high speed. Sounds more like tyre noise from an under inflated tyre. Happens at lower speeds and sounds like it’s at top of windscreen but hard to tell. I’ve checked all tyre pressures and no gaps around windscreen.

I have caddy life mirrors so don’t think it’s them. Also have wind deflectors fitted but I don’t think it’s them either. Weird one but hoping someone else has come across it. TIA

It's coming from driver side wing mirror mate on most caddys

I have caddy life mirrors. They’re not affected with that issue

Has your van ever had the windscreen replaced?.

The left hand drive caddys have different type wing mirror to fix this problem

I believe it to be original windscreen as it’s still got vw marking. I’ll check out the aerial point if I can seen it. My mirrors are both the same size

All antennas are inside the mirrors for Caddy 4, as far as I know.
