Please tell me how to make it stop!
I can't drive with my windows down because there's a high pitch whistling sound coming from both mirrors. :eek:
I had the same problem, mine was the cover not fitting properly. One of the clips were broken from where the dealer replaced the mirror. Finally I had a new cover installed, it fits much tighter and no more wind noise

Sounds like this is definately a warranty issue.

I've been talking to KIA about this issue for a while now... It is definitely a manufacture's defect.. The cause is excess plastic on the painted side of the covers( parallel to the door window). there is a tiny plastic ridge there so when air hits it, it creates a high pitch noise. You can do 1 of 3 things.

1. Sand it down, and repaint
2. Put tape over it (my temporary fix)
3. Talk to your dealer

My dealer told me something about quality control looking into the problem.
KIA has been very slow about this issue... :mad:
