What could possibly be wrong if I keep hearing as if a window is partly opened. The vents are all closed

Asked by Feb 28, 2017 at 08:00 PM about the Lexus RX 350

Question type: General

The noise sounds like when the air or heat is turned up all the way.  I believe a luxury vehicle should sound quiet.  I am not feeling any air and I have checked and rechecked that all the windows are properly closed and also the sunroof.

Have a passenger listen while you drive to pin point the noise source. Diagnosing noises over the internet is nearly impossible.

Might be some worn weatherstripping. How old is the vehicle?

it is a 2013 with 57,000 miles. It was sounding perfect and it was taken in to have the tire sensor replaced. The next day I turned it on and then I heard the sound when I drove a little distance.

Do a visual inspection on all the weather strips. Maybe something was pushed out of place.

Step out of the car and push the door frame by the window and see if u see it move in, the locking latch might need to be adjusted or someone might've forced the door to try to unlock it and doesn't seal anymore

Brake Booster, Vacuum lines.

I did try pushing the door frame as suggested but nothing moved so I have ruled that out. This was a very good suggestion. Thank you.
