Im in the process of doing some interior mods to my AUI Fairmont and have had a nagging problem which i wanted to fix first.

Air is entering the cabin via the windscreen vent area when im driving above approx. 60kph. It sounds like someone has left the window open a crack when your driving on the highway.

I took out the instrument trim panel and sealed some areas I thought were leaking air but no change.

Has anyone had this problem before ?

Yes, I do hear that.

Today I managed to gap fill and stuff every imaginable crevice under that trim panel and still have the noise.
