Hello, brought out new 2021 ST Explorer in for service as we're experiencing an ongoing whistling sound that seems to be coming from the sunroof area. The service Dept confirmed the noise and took another like unit out and found the same noise. They taped off the sunroof and were unable to stop the noise. They said there is no known fix so we need to wait for Ford to determine a solution.
Has anyone experienced similar issues and are there any known fixes out there? FYI - I had a similar problem with our 2016 Explorer and they had to replace the seal and that did the trick. Not sure about this one though. Thanks for any support you can provide.

I got mine 3 days ago. Today it started making like cracking noise.. when pushed against it it stops. Also does anyone experience rattling noise when going over the bumps?

I had this. The plastic edge that runs along the mesh deflector assembly was not centered across the mesh. It was sticking off to the passenger side by about 1 inch. As soon as I slid the plastic edge towards the driver, the whistling went away.

Could you help us out with a picture?
