Check the door to make sure it is making contact with the new seal, also check the fit of the door in the opening, make sure the door isn't cutting into the air flow as your driving. It may not even be the door, it could a trim piece catching the air flow. HTH

i can feel the air and hear the air up in the corner. there is interior felt trim but i don't know what that is called to research replacement. i did replace the exterior rubber door seals @ 200$ but sadly it didn't take care of the problem.

If the door is not fitting in the opening like it used to, you have some worn hinge bushings. The gap around the door should be the same. If the door "drops" when you open it, replace those hinge bushings, they sell kits at the parts stores. Also, if you do have worn/ripped weatherstripping, try your local "pick-a-part" for replacement pieces. Replace those

did the new seal mount over a ridge of meta; or was i held on with little plastic push pins?

take off triangle piece on inside of the door panel behind the mirror and fill holes with insulation, the mirror must of been replaced at some point and they did not replace the insulation
