We have had our SF turbo for 6 months now - still have wind noise at the front windows - both sides, extremely loud on passenger side, and at any speed. We have had the vehicle in to service numerous times and have had seals replaced on all windows, side mirrors replaced, etc. We not have a bug deflector. The local service guys at the Evansville Hyundai are amazing - very helpful and are trying their best to find the problem - but to no avail thus far.... This is very frustrating as the last thing you want to hear when driving a brand new loaded $$$$ SUV down the road is wind noise as if all the windows are cracked.... We have copied all of the previous suggestions from others and have taken them into our local service department as well as filed a complaint with Hyundai to get "on the book" so to speak. Please keep the suggestions coming....we are at a loss and very disappointed....other than this issue, we are very happy with the SF!
I've bought one of those deflectors with 9 clips and the wind noise is noticeably bad. I took it off 2 days after I installed it. It is clearly a design flaw with it. I don't have any wind noise otherwise.
The Part Number is: 013DP00031 (Made in Canada); the one described by CUMan may be a better one (P/N 4Z024ADU00).
I took it back to the parts store where I bought it and they did not want to take it back because the package was opened. I told them I wouldn't return it if it wasn't noisy but they kept telling me that nobody complained so far and I should have it installed in their service shop. I'm sure I followed the instructions and there is not much you can do wrong.
Anyway, I'm glad I found that I'm not the only one with these issues so I'm going back to the dealership with new info. Thanks.
I have seen a few sfs now that we removed the hood protector , drove it and voilą !!! noise gone
I think most hood protecters wrap under the edge of the hood , this design does not do that . there is abit of a gap .
