: 1995 540i-very annoying wind noise from windshield and/or defroster ducts-can't identify or remedy. Dealer service has given up- says ..."they are all noisy...", suggestions would be appreciated. It's embarrassing to have a Jag owner comment on the noise at speeds as low as 40 mph. Thanks

I'm not positive, but I bet you are experiencing the dreaded "wiper apron flap" for want of a better term. There is a black plactic "apron" under the wiper arms and it flaps in the breeze after a while. Mine started doing it one night above 80 mph and drove me crazy. It sounded like a buzzing sound coming from the dash. Double sided tape or some sort of silicone glue under the edges of the apron will solve your problem.
