PostSubject: Squeaks, Rattles, Wind Noise & Water Leaks - Diagnosis Help   Thu Aug 12, 2010 6:20 am

I have uploaded several new (actually old rolleyes ) videos from the Buick "Know-how" Series on YouTube and thought this one video in particular, on finding/resolving squeaks, rattles, windnoise and water leaks, may be of some interest to my fellow Riv owners (it's a two-part video):

Hope this is of some help to y'all! smile

Craig, I DO appreciate your posts - I just can't help feeling depressed that they had to create these things in the first place... sad

EDIT: Does anyone know what the difference is between a 'retainer' and a 'flange'?

EDIT: I guess I'm glad I bought a new weatherstrip 3 years ago, just on general principles... But because it's now packed away for my move, I don't know if it has the modified seal or not. I have, however, noticed increasing noise in cross-wind conditions at high speeds...

Oh, God, it gets even worse at minute 7! I love the way they make frameless windows sounds line a brand-new idea... Hell, we had them on our '71 Lincoln!!

(and gee, isn't it easy to work on a car that just came off the assembly line?) tongue

He's right, just bookmark it... I tried 3 times to use DownloadHelper, and every time it looked like it worked but I got only an empty file.

Why don't you quit showing disrespect to members like that and just go away.
This is a Riviera site not a park Ave site, and sorry you have no where to go.

what are you talking about? why are you always speaking for other people im sure if straighteight thought that i was being an ass he wouldve said something. he thought i was joking and i simply assured that i wasnt and that there should be a youtube video box in the original post. what is your deal rick? and yes i am seriously asking you this expecting a response, i didnt do a damn thing to you. why are you whining? WAAAAAAAAAA, fuck off, why dont you grow up and if you got a problem with me then quit directing all of your posts at me. like you said, this is a riviera site, so start talking about rivieras instead of picking fights with me like an immature little bitch.

What screen, I just show his message, and a large box with an x in the upper left hand corner.
have uploaded several new (actually old ) videos from the Buick "Know-how" Series on YouTube and thought this one video in particular, on finding/resolving squeaks, rattles, windnoise and water leaks, may be of some interest to my fellow Riv owners (it's a two-part video):

Tyler's screen-shot is what you should be seeing.
From what you describe, you probably need to install/update Adobe Flash. Even though I always see the links properly, I still have some little glitch myself with YouTube links: After I click on the Play arrow, it tells me an error occurred, then I have to click in the black area to be taken directly to the YouTube page...

You should start by hovering/clicking on the 'x' and/or right-clicking within the empty box to see if you can glean any information - you could have a security program blocking it too. If you don't find any hints that way, google "Adobe Flash update" and follow the directions for your browser. (Come to think of it, you should first make sure your browser itself doesn't have any updates available...)

Good luck,
Mark

Sweet vids, thank you!

I have a slight wind noise on my passenger side window at highway speeds. Maybe now I can fix it!
