Default Window weatherstripping

I get a fair amount of wind noise (whistling) from my front windows at highway speed and am considering replacing the weatherstripping if possible. Since I have interior wood trim, it may be too difficult if it requires removing the windows, but has anyone done this job?

Default Window Seal

Part of the fix is to replace the window felt at the front of the slide…if you open the forward slide you see that there is a felt strip that seals the front of the window when closed. Remove the old felt and clean the channel, the felt has an adhesive strip on the back.

You can buy new felt at Ace Hardware; it seems to be an exact replacement.

ACE Pile Seal, Stock #52210
3/16 in. (W) ¼ in. (T)

This comes in a 17 ft. roll and they can order it for you if not in stock.
