I can honestly say its not on all 9th Gens as i've recently made several London/Leeds/London trips at speeds varying from 30pmh upwards and not had a single issue. In fact, recently I was somewhere slightly above the 70mph area and a passenger commented on how quiet it was!

Has anyone had the wind noise fix carried out and if so, did it resolve the issue?

Three unsuccessful attempts to rectify the wind noise issue.

The last attempt was on 17 May when the dealer fitted a sealant strip modification to the wing mirror mount. The Service Department described it as “draught excluder material fitted between the triangular panel and the door”, so it sounds very much like the material listed in the Service Bulletin. Unfortunately, it had no effect whatsoever. I have told the dealer, who are, as far as I am aware, still waiting for a solution from Honda.

However, the date on the Service Bulletin is the 18 May, so perhaps I should give them a gentle reminder.

In the ‘Issues Issues Issues!!!’ thread, Kremmen suggested using a length of masking tape along the top edge of the window/rubber seal to see if it solves the problem. Then to remove a bit at a time until the area causing the wind noise is found. I’ve tried this, but even with masking tape all around the driver’s door window/rubber the wind noise remains.

Interesting, that would indicate it's coming from somewhere else.

I've always found the best way to find the exact location of a rattle is to use a length of plastic hose as a sthethoscope.

The number of times I've thought a rattle is coming from one place and it turns out to be a totally different location.

The last rattle I diagnosed this way was what I thought was coming from inside the dash.
It turned out to be the black plastic housing behing the rear view mirror that shields the rain sensor.

Prior to that what I thought was coming from the passenger door mirror/tweeter area turned out to be something in the centre console!

Interesting, I was also going to tape off an area to try, guess still worth a try as no doubt the garage won't resolve first time, and if like most, will have to spoon feed them to find a resolve!

Wind noise

Does anybody knows if there is a solution available regarding the wind noise. I also have the wind noise issue. Went to the dealer. There was a part missing near the wing mirror. They repaired it, but the wind noise is stil the same.

The trouble with these problems is that unless you can pinpoint it then I don't think you're going to get a quick fix. The owner has more time than a dealer mechanic to diagnose the issue.

I know from experience that inside a car a noise can be far away from where you think it is. I thought I had a rattle coming from around the passenger side air vent / door tweeter area. ended up being something rattling round in the centre console !

If your sure it's definitely the drivers side then I think your going to have to mask up both doors including the complete physical door opening circles plus the complete glass surrounds, exterior door handles, and possibly the front windscreen surround and anywhere that could be letting in wind or causing wind resistance, then climb in the passenger side for the test drive.

One thing you could check quite easily is that both the windows are definitely closing fully and that the pinch sensor isn't too sensitive.

Went to the dealer today regarding the wind noise issue. Just to figure out whats causing the noise. First we taped the triangle plastic in front of the mirror (not at the door). That didn't do a lot. Then taped the door and the vertical part of the window (behind the mirror). That seems to work. After that we removed all the tape except the vertical part on the window. Still ok. Removed all tape to verify, noise was back. After that taped the window and the noise levels where down.
To me it looks like tubulance, but not all civics share this issue. The dealer will contact Honda to share this info and see what they come up with.
