I just opened the glove box and it will snap off and get it out of way i laid on my back and you can reach your hand into the glove box area and with the truck running and fan blower on cycle the rec switch and i had my fingers inside the grill of the blower motor and you can feel the door open and close, idk exactly what i did but as the door closed i just pushed it with my fingers to be sure it was closed and cycled the switch again and then pushed on the door to be sure it closed all the way i couldnt tell if i made a difference but i could feel that it wasnt hanging slightly open so i got on freeway and it didnt whistle aka wind noise anymore. Before i did this i was checking door seals and making sure the window was rolled up completly and the one day i happen to hit defrost and it went away the rec switch will go to outside air when defrost is on and whistle stopped, maybe a leaf or or piece of trash got in and kept it from sealing or it just got hung up, sorry i dont have pics to show qhat i did but its a simple procedure.

The rec switch has NO effect on the turbulent wind noise on my 1500.

For those that are new to Ram trucks

If the glove boxes are the same as they have been in the past
first empty them
then the lower glove box sort of squeezes inwards from the sides & that allows you to remove the box.
Then if you look at the bottom of the upper box, you should see 1 screw, take it out & that allows you to remove the upper box.

You can then see just about everything behind there

If you look closely, you will also see a dotted line ? in the cardboard covering the firewall, that can be trimmed out & you can then install a cab air filter, if you so choose

you should also be able to see the some of the area behind the radio, in the 2009 Rams, they hid the USB cable behind there on some models
