    just wondering, I've been hearing a noise that sounds like its rain hitting my windshield when I travel over 50 mph.
    The only problem is that it isnt raining, what a weird sound.
    Has anyone every experienced this?

    My Friends 03 chevy just needed windshield trim adhesive and his sound went away. Dont know if there is a TSB or not, but it was an easy fix.

    Just got th details from my buddy.
    Do you have a bug shield, if so the wind is being moved over the windshield differently. Anyway remove the side trim peices from the windshield, and reinstall with body side moulding adhesive ot the caulking.
