I have an '04 S that had a similar problem. Check the fit of the front window gasket at the front corner of the window (That is, at the window frame angle right beside the top of the mirror mount). The gasket should fit in the "U" channel of the door frame precisely. If the corner looks rounded or if the gasket looks bunched up, uneven or is protruding on the outside of the glass and door frame in that corner, that's probably where your wind noise is coming from. On mine, Toyota built the car using a gasket with out adhesive backing & when it was replaced with an adhesive backed gasket, it stayed in place and wind noise went away. Mine was driver's side, but now I'm beginning to see the passenger side start to look funky.... should have insisted that both be replaced (car was still under warranty when the DS gasket was replaced).

After reading several posts, it is evident that people for some reason DO NOT READ THE MANUAL THAT IS IN THE GLOVE BOX. You can save time and frustration not to mention getting to know your vehicle by just browsing through the manual. Car makers could save millions of dollars if they did not include the manual, so READ IT.

Well, I took the car in and explained the problem. They couldn't reproduce it, but they said they had a service bulletin out about the problem. They resealed the windshield and it's fixed now. (got 3 free oil changes out of it too because we dropped the car off and they called us back saying they didn't have the glue, but would have it the next day.) BONUS!

My 06 Corolla S did that simular thing. It happened when I was wiping out the door jamb after washing. I must have hit the weather stripping and knocked it out of it's track. It made noise then I saw what I did and now it is quiet.
#20 of 23 corolla whistling
Sep 13, 2010 (7:19 pm)
Hi everyone. My 2005 Toyota Corolla S (auto) does the same thing. When I am on the highway going 55-75 mph, a whistling noise comes on. After investigating it for two weeks, the whistle noise does NOT come from the windshield or the dashboard. The noise comes from the moonroof. However, there is no auto shop in town that can fix it. So anyone have any ideas?

It's the faulty seal they use, which is the same on the windshield and moonroofs. They know about it, but it's not a safety hazard, so they don't make a big deal about it. If it's still under warranty, they'll "fix" it for you. We took ours in and they replaced the seal. The whistling didn't go away completely, but for the most part it was a lot less annoying.
Sounds are made by vibration. So, air is getting in through somewhere and vibrating the seal, making the noise. It's difficult to troubleshoot or fix yourself without replacing the entire seal. You can try pressing your fingers up against the seal at various points along the seam and see if it goes away or changes frequency. If you find the point, maybe you can ask an auto shop what you can do to seal the leak.
