So since I added the bug deflector, the hood shake was pretty bad. So today I added the rubber hose to the rear sponge bulb under the hood. Made a huge difference. And it was cheap fix, $7 at Lowe’s.

I’ve still got quite a bit of wind noise that I’m still trying to track down. I added the backer rod material to the upper part of the windshield but it hasn’t helped.
I’m assuming it’s coming in either around the door or the windows. May take some time to figure this one out.

Have you driven any other Bronco Sports? If so, is the wind noise in yours louder?

If it is measurably louder, your issue may be covered under warranty.

I applied the foam tubing and it helped quite a bit but then I also added some rubber seal to cover the gap completely. My Badlands is far quieter now.
