Your Ride: 2003 330i
My '03 330i makes a noise like a child's toy horn at 70mph. It's not too loud, just annoying. It comes from the front of the drivers window/door and goes away when I roll the window down. ( I don't know if the window is the culprit or the pressure change stops the door from squealing.) It is probably the weatherstripping but I wanted to know if anybody else had heard/fixed this.
Free beer to the right answer!
Umnitza now provides a mechanic to install all parts ordered right in the box! It's their new "Total customer service program" that will eliminate all the haters and keep incompetents from breaking **** and blaming the vendor! When you are all set simply call INS and they will pick him up free of charge.

Bmw weather seals can get dry over time, causing the rubber seal to rub onto the window. Dont use wd-40 or a lubricant like that beucase your windows will get streaked. Get some paper towels and some window spray cleaner, the foam spray. I wouldnt try windex but if thats all you got, go with it.
Wet the towel, and clean off the seal that the window touches. Also spray sylicone wiped onto your door seals would help reduce the noise.
The window creak noise you hear is a known complaint on x5 rear tail gates and all early model x3 window seals, like yours.
