Refresh Model S wind noise

Just an update to this thread:
Just like Greeney said, they finally replaced the front right quarter glass. This part was out of stock for over 2 months. The guy who did the job showed me how the old glass was not even glued on to the rubber, hence all the wind noise. I asked him how Tesla could deliver a new car just like that, he had no clue. He said its pretty common. Once replaced, the wind noise all gone. Tesla needs to up their quality control a bit. Regardless, thanks everyone for their advice / insight.

Can you explain how to check if glass is not glued to the rubber? Is it possible to see when installed, and which section on the glass? Thanks

So when I went out for a test drive with the service tech, what he did was put his finger along the lining of the quarter glass window, while I was driving 75mph. He found a spot where once held down, the wind noise was gone. That meant there was a leak.

As for knowing if the glue is intact, only way I assume is once the window is removed by the tech.
