    Cool driver door

    Try closing a dollar bill in the top of the door with the window open, than slide the bill down the door until it meets less resistance. That spot is most likely the air leak.

    very common, the wind blew it open or the door was over extended. try bringing in the strike plate on the door jamb. take a felt marker, fine tip, and outline the striker plate. loosen the torque bit bolts a little then tap it in with a hammer so it moves about 20k inch. tighten the bolts, not too tight, and drive it. repeat as needed.

    if this doesnt fix it, let me know, the jamb may have to be realigned.

    Unhappy Sagging Door Silverado

    The late model trucks have a poor hinge design. If the wind catches your door an swings it open it can crack the welds on the mount. I had an 06 where the hinge cracked twice. The second time, the dealership ran a heavy bead all the way around the hinge plates. The door sagged to the point that it started pinching on the front fender when I opened it.

    On my S-10 I had that open air feel and sound as well, and I had no bushings left in the door. I replaced the pins and bushings in the hinges, and now there is no more wind noise in the cab. Hope you figure it out, because I know that has to be annoying.
