Wind noise

#1 Post by Ltriumph » Thu Nov 24, 2016 7:14 pm

Hi - I have a 2000TC 1978 - I find there is a lot of wind noise on the open road - is this normal? It seems to come from around the top of the front doors - the rubbers look ok.

I have the same issue after replacing my door rubbers. It was fine before with the perished leaky old ones!

Welcome to triumph ownership. It may need a new rubber seal, but they weren't much better when they left the factory. Just another reason why we love our triumphs.

Hello I.Triumph,

bad wind noise usual;ly means a gap between the rubber and the window frame. One step is to see if you can adjust the door to get a better seal and I have had to adjust the winmdow frame (glass down of course) with a heavy soft faced mallet. You should be able to get rid of any wind noise.
