whistling noise at 65- 70 mph ---- sounds like a flute

I willing to bet that this happens on days with temps above 85 degrees. Ford has replaced my windshield 3 times and IT STILL DOES IT! This is heat related as my Explorer does NOT do this during the Winter months. I really believe it is the sealant that is the problem. To prove my point, on a hot day, install black electrical tape where you think the sound is coming from, take your drive. My money is that it is gone. NOW, go get some silicone sealant, cut a small hole in the tube, carefully and slowly lift up the rubber seal around your windshield as you insert the sealant under the rubber seal. Now take that black electrical tape and apply along the rubber molding to hold it in place for about a day or two. Remove the tape and IF you put enough silicone sealant under the rubber molding, the sound should be gone.
YOU would think that the ford engineers could have come up with this but "NO" they just kept replacing the windshield EVEN after I told them that this wind noise is "heat related" and the sealant they are using breaks its bond at temps above 85 degrees. Anyway, it works and now I don't have to put up with that wind noise anymore. Another way to stop that wind noise,,,,,turn UP the radio until YOU can't hear it anymore.
HAVE A NICE DAY.
