rubber molding and car noise

okay so i have 2 questions ... i have a 02 honda accord coup ex w/ a 4 cyclinder engine and i need to know ... how the hell do i replace those rubber moldings all over my car? ... most to all are coming off of the car. 2nd question, is there any way to make my car noise be reduced? because it seems like there is so much wind noise and highway noise but if i can find a way to dampen it, i will do it asap. thanks guys

Re: rubber molding and car noise

you can stop wind noise by not driving at all.

Re: rubber molding and car noise

I never really had any wind noise when I was driving until I put on my rain guard visor, now that I go past over 45 it gets really loud but if I go over 80 it tends to go away, drive faster maybe? Oh by the way, Im a safe driver. I dont race.

The wind noise is one of the perks of driving our car.

Re: rubber molding and car noise

the rubber moldings are just held on by little clips that break very easy,and tear the rubber very easy..so be careful when replacing them.
But best bet for wind noise is to replace both the rubber trim that goes around the door frame,and then the one that goes around the door itsself. and make sure its getting proper seal-age when shut.

then also you can dynamat the whole entire car.under the carpet,behind trimpanels,under headliner ect..

Good luck

Get new door weather stripping and moldings. Check if TAS auto has them.

Re: rubber molding and car noise

I hear that Dynamat works wonders for making your car quiet, but to do the entire interior will be pricey and time consuming.
