Like most Vanagon owners I had wind noise coming from my wing window (the triangle window on the front door). One day while I was at the park and the sun was hitting my van just right, I noticed a gap in the window seal. I used foam weather stripping from Home Depot and placed it on the bottom of the triangle window.
At first, I thought it would be so thick that my window wouldn’t close, but low and behold, it completely stopped the wind noise.
According to the Minneapolis Star Tribune, the source for all this evidence is the American Wind Energy Association and Canadian Wind Energy Association. This is a well done graphic, which I find completely ironic because two journalists came to conclusions such as: blades producing pulsing or oscillating sound, flicker can disturb residents, noise produced by vortex shedding, nacelle producing high pitched sound similar to jet engines, all based on information they researched from AWEA and CanWEA.
One small correction should be noted, the blade tip speed is closer to 120 mph, therefore faster than what is noted above. Toyota has released a Technical Service Bulletin (T-SB) for a windshield wind noise issue in 2009-12 Tacomas. A T-SB has been issued for some 2009-12 Toyota Tacoma's experiencing windshield wind noise.

The T-SB only applies to those trucks that were built BEFORE the production change effective VINs below. The T-SB repair is covered under Toyota’s Comprehensive Warranty, 36 months or 3,600 miles and is limited to the condition in this T-SB. Use masking tape to cover the windshield molding and drive vehicle to confirm the wind whistle noise is eliminated. Remove and reseal windshield following the service manual or sublet to a glass removal company.Note that the windshield molding will be damaged and will need to be replaced completely. As with any T-SB repair, it is advised that you visit your local Toyota dealership if any problems arise.
Associate Editor Tim Esterdahl is a married father of three who enjoys golfing, trucks and working outside. I have this same wind noise problem on a 2013 Tacoma Double Cab 4 wheel drive with 3,000 miles on it.
I also have a 2013 Tacoma Crew Cab 4 wheel drive with howling noise at 70mph from around windshield. I have a new 2014 tacoma same problem yea lets go places ,my ass I can’t even get on the freeway without it being annoying and the dealers giving me the runaround .

According to the T-SB-0062-12, “some 2009-2012 Tacoma vehicles may exhibit a wind whistle type noise coming from upper area of the windshield or the outer perimeter of the windshield. I have the same problem with the 2013 European version – Toyota Hilux twin cab 3L Diesel. TACOMA is used in the title of this website solely to identify the subject of interest to the website. Then I had air coming in at the bottom of both rear windows, they told me this was caused by loose rubbers, this was also solved. They gave me another new Hilux while they work on mine and it has the same issues with the driver’s door, they must have a design problem. By the way, when my truck first arrived the top of the two front doors were sticking out like bat wings and had to be adjusted.
