I had to have my blower motor replaced due to a sound uit was making. Does the sound speed up when you increase the fan speed?

i wouldnt say it does, but it only seems to happen when i have the ac on. i shut off the ac and fans but it will continue making the noise for a while, so i dont think it has to do with fan speed. the noise seem to be louder when i accelerate, but not all the time. one time i heard it even when the ac or fan wasnt on. seems to be random but occurs more when the ac is on.

I had the fly noise today and discovered the trim around the windshield on the driver's side is torn. There is a metal reinforcement molded into the rubber strip, and it cracked, then completely broke. Now whenever I am going 65 - 70 mph, it buzzes like a giant fly. It doesn't sound like it's coming from the defroster though, it very much sounds like it's coming from the top of the windshield (and it is).

I took some pics of it today, I'll post them and update this with a link.

Link to pics. Scroll to the bottom, there are three pics of the weather strip, two are IIP, the other is FM. It should be obvious what the problem is.

i checked closer and the buzz is indeed coming from the sunroof area on the driver side where lobux said. however, i checked that thing outside and it doesnt seem to be broken, it doesnt lift up. it seems normal yet still gettin that annoying buzz everytime i hit 90mph. i wish i could seal somethin up with something like silicon or sumn.

They replaced my trim and the windshield. Damn the bad luck, I just had the old one nicely Rain-X'd.

Hmm... I gotta check mine tomorrow to see if my trim is broken too... I have the same high pitch buzzing noise when I go over 70 mph. In my opinion, it is coming from the top of the windshield... at least thats where I think the noise is loudest. I took it into the shop one time and the service dude took it out for a drive and said he didn't hear anything and blew me off. Oh well... thanks for the pics.

That's what warranty is for. I let them decide what they need to do.
