When there is wind noise from the windows, the door rubbers have to be changed. Even if they are not torn and appear to be in good condition, you will notice that new ones are much softer. If the rubbers are still the original ones, the rubber will be too hard.

Take out the screw at the front end of the rubber. See if there is a screw at the rear end. Often there is. Remove that one too. The screw is hidden inside the hollow part of the rubber. Pull the old rubber out.

The new rubber is too long on both ends. Carefully cut it to size. At the front it needs to be shaped a bit. Use the original rubber as an example. Put the new rubber in with a very blunt screwdriver.

When you close the door with the window up, there may be a gap at the top rear of the window. Don't worry. Get in the car. Wind the window down 5cm, then wind it up again. It will now go into the rubber. If the car has to go through the car wash, you may close that corner by just pushing it into the rubber. After some time the rubber will be shaped and the gap will become less.

If the gap at the top rear of the window is too large an does not go away, you have to check the window guides and brushes. Also check the door for cracks.
