Default Fix for wind noise on '02 accord

I recently bought 3 older accord sedans, a 1998, 1999, and a 2002. The 99 and 02 both had severe wind whistling noises coming from near the drivers side mirror, even at low speeds. It was driving me crazy, and I read several forums where others have had the same problem with their accords.
Last week I found the culprit. On the rubber trim just in front of the mirror face (on the outside of the car) there is a place where the rubber bumps out a bit and forms a cup shaped opening smaller than a pea. It's right near the top of the triangle-shaped mirror mount. I filled this hole with black silicone caulk and the whistling noise disappeared.
What I don't understand is that the 1999 has the same bumpout but no whistling. Anyway, I hope this helps someone else.

Thanks for posting. This sort of noise problem around the mirrors and window trim is common. Sometimes affects all and others no.

good luck
