I havent pinpointed where exactly my noise is but on my 2dr the top appears to sit offset to the passenger side and I think thats my cause. Ive put weatherstrip in between and it helped a little. 1st pic is passenger side. Notice hor the clamshell sits outward on the vertical part? 2nd pic is driver side. Ive compared other 2dr and they all appear to be off a little bit.

Try using painters tape to track down the source.

I get this on mine too. I'll keep an eye out for any results you come up with, but in the meantine, I'll just increase the volume on the radio.

Other times, I just lean into it and lower the window a little (lol).

Well, I don't know what "excessive" is, but I have the same wind problem on my 2Dr Base... on the right side in back of the passenger seat.

I've only got 3600 on the Bronco, and have never had any part of the top off. I'm not sure it did it from day 1, but I've noticed the wind noise for at least the last 1000 miles.

I will DEFINITELY be interested in anything you find as a fix.

My girlfriend has noticed the same thing in the Bronco she drives (2023 2 door) but compared to the noise level in my 2021 2 door Bronco, it's nothing.

The window is solid and glued into the MIC top so the procedure is mute in this case.

Looking at back corners of hard top it looks skewed to one side at back. Making front wrong. Could be pic angle. Maybe top is not aligned right and wind is getting in somewhere.

Well, on my 2DR the sound is there, but not really loud. I'll have to look at how the hardtop is centered (or not).

Maybe its just the way it is... a design feature.

I can't remember how my 2016 Jeep was. For all I know I might just notice it more because the Bronco is quieter. Seems funny it is only on the passenger side, though.

Any who... if you find a fix for this be sure to post it.
