Since I picked up my rodeo last year there is a constant wind noise coming from the top part of drivers side door seal when traveling at or over 100kph.

It is just a bit annoying on longer trips.

Does anyone have any ideas or suggestions to get rid of this ?

can the door be tightened up in any way ?

Wind your window down, then with the door open push the top of door frame in. Had the same problem in a LH SLR years ago and it worked.

Thanks I will give that a go

It sounds like that is just what is happening but I was not sure.

Best car I ever owned. Mine was a 253 with a tall diff so not quick off the mark but first car I ever owned that would cruise at 120ks easy. Done some simple mods like small 4 barrell , extractors, electronic ignition, and electric fan. Brought it in 82 with only 80000ks on it. Hopeless as a fishing and camping vehicle so brought my first 4by a lj80 suz as a second vehicle and got the bug.

253 was the best engine GM ever made totally bomb proof :-)

I had an old HZ Kingswood wagon for towing a boat

Terrible 3 speed gearbox atrocious fuel tank fill point appalling steering and stock standard it could not breath at all.

A holly 500 carby and decent cam shaft made all the difference to performance in a straight line run it still did not handle but it would just tow all day regardless of the load.

It was a great camping vehicle a we could fit kids cat boat and all the gear in it and take off anywhere there was a road :-) ( without corners )

Gotta agree the 253 was a great donk and long lasting like most short stroke motors. My LH handled very well although pre rts. Only time I nearly lost it I was being stupid. Brother had a fairly new Hz and it handled very well for the time. In fact he scared the , out of me first time he took me for a drive. But that slr was the most reliable vehicle I ever owned. Only blot on its copy book was it blew a brake hose while I was towing my boat, luckily it had a duel circuit system so still had rear brakes but only when the brake pedal was on the floor. The Torana also had no ground clearance (4 .5 inchs for memory when most cars had 6 to 8 inchs.
The slrs had very stiff suspension but rode a lot better then the previous gtrs.

I had the Kingswood when I met Margo ( my wife ) I drove her from Canberra to the coast soon after we met and she was convinced I was a really really bad driver as I was all over the road going round corners at pretty average speed.

She drove it back up the same road and thought I was a really good driver to be able to keep it on the road at the speed I was doing :-)

She had the Ford 250 6 cylinder Cortina they was also a deathmobile !!!
