I have a 2005 Odyessy Touring model that the dealership cant seem to get to stop whisteling? They have pulled the windshield 6 or 7 times now...yes that includes 6-7 tripos to the dealer to do that and still no resolution to the problem. they have also replaced the trim and molding around it and no luck. My sister has an 06 EXL model and has the same problem (two different states)

Anyone else had this issue?

I had a whistling problem. Turns out they had installed the roof rack incorrectly. But it was more wind noise than an actual whistle.

I have a whistle in my 2005 Odyssey. I have had it in to the dealer 4 times now. They've replace clips that hold the windshield on, but to no avail. I'm thinking it might be time to write Honda corporate.

I have a 2006 Odyssey Touring that has a whistle along the drivers side of the windshield. This only seems to occur in a crosswind. I have eliminated the noise by placing a 10 inch piece of electrical tape over the joint (where two pieces come together). The dealer would like to try resealing the windshield. This is based on having problems of leakage (water?) on other Odysseys due to lack of sealant. The problem was traced to a robotic sealing machine in the factory. I am reluctant to proceed since I have not seen any leakage.

A similar sound can be produced by blowing across the open end of a plastic soda straw.

This is a common problem, Honda has a technical service bulletin out for it. The cowl cover at the base of the windshield needs to be replaced. Dealer reference TSB 04-078

I have an 05 EXL and also have a whistling, though usually during wet condition driving. A big issue for us here in Tacoma, Wa. I have not found the source. I thought it was from the top rack, so I siliconed the holes in it. Did not fix the problem. My stereo is my only fix so far. My windows rattle when fully closed too. Any fixes to this problem?

I have had my 2005 Odyssey in the shop at least 1/2 dozen times since I bought it new for the same windshield noise problem (it is in the shop right now and they have had it for 3 days). I told them to provide me with a loaned vehicle and do not call me to pick up the Odyssey until the noise is gone. If they do not fix the noise this time, I will pursue returning the Odyssey to Honda under the Washington State Lemon Law program. I've listened to the shrill whistle for 28,000 miles and that is enough for me. Honda has replaced moldings/cowlings several times, and the windshield once. I even understand that there is a Honda service bullitin relating to the problem. The bottomline is, I thought I bought the Cadillac of mini-vans and believe Honda has sold a lemon to me and many other consumers of the 2005 model.

My automatic windows squeak and rattle too when rolled up. I have had my 2005 Odyssey in the shop for this problem 3 times and still squeak/rattle. Buying a new vehicle these days seems like a real crap shoot. I know I have bought my first and last Honda - really unfortunate, since they have always had a good reputation for quality.

My '07 Honda Odyssey (with only 2000 miles) has a pretty significant (but sporadic) whistle from the front. Sounds like it comes from the pax side when I'm driving; the pax says it sounds like it's coming from the driver side. The dealer (South Tacoma Honda) has really been great so far - they had the front window replaced today but it did not fix the problem. I have no intention of making this a long term project as it really bothers us. Any suggestions??

I have a 2005 Odyssey with this same annoying whistling and excessive wind noise coming from both l & r windshield molding. The whistling noise can occur as low as 35 mph. When I cover it with nice blue painter's masking tape, the wind noise is reduced significantly. However, a driving rain soon takes care of the tape. So far, my local Honda dealer has not been of any help. In fact they suggest the noise may be coming from a scrape on the corner of the right bumper?? I have requested a meeting with the Honda Corp rep - in process. I have owned Hondas since 1974 and this is really frustrating.

Look at the rubber piece on the outside base of the windshield (cowl). It should be flushed against the windshield. If it has lifted up in some areas, whistle noise will happen. I put painters tape on it and test drove and it went away. My dealership is going to replace it for me.

Same problem with my recently purchased 06 EX-L. Whistling sound (even at low speeds) coming from driver's side windshield. I checked the cowls and they look okay, but the problem persists. Help?

I have the same problem with my 2006 Odyssey. I put a tape along the line where the windshield and the rubber meet ( on the outside ). The noise stopped completely. Thanks to Bob's posting above.

But as a long term measure is having a tape a good idea?

Why not just go to a windshield place and have them run a bead of sealer around the glass?
