    Repair Method
    Diagnose and if necessary repair as described below.
    1. Test drive the car to verify the noise. The noise will be easiest to detect in warmer weather conditions.

    2. If a noise is heard apply masking tape across the windshield moulding and onto the ‘A’ pillars and roof.

    3. Test drive the car again. If the noise has been eliminated then proceed to the repair method below. If the noise is still present then disregard this bulletin as cause may be different.
