This summer we have been getting to know our 06 Nuevo ES. Very pleased so far, but one problem has been excessive wind noise through the cab door seals when you get up to 60/65 mph. In this months CC mag someone has had a similar problem with an 06 motorhome, but it is on a Fiat Ducato which looks identical to my Puegeot Boxer. A possible solution was to fix an extra strip of draught excluder to the top of the door or frame. Anyone else had this problem or got any suggestions? Are the Fiat and the Peugeot basically the same vehicle with different  engines, or just different badges?

We had exactly the same issue when we had our 2004 Pollensa on a Peugeot boxer base. Particularly the passenger cab door. I am afraid I have got no solution, we just lived with it. I think perhaps the door hinges need adjusting to bring the door in tighter, if it is possible. Modern doors should close properly. Any additional insulation strips could probably be unsightly, become unstuck and be more irritating than the gap between the seals. Our habitation door had a gap you could see through. Fortunately it didn't let the rain in. Sorry I am no real help at all!

Peugeot Boxers, Fiat Ducatos and Citroen Relays are all the same with a different badge and very minor trim differences. All built in the same factory, often referred to as Sevel vans. Google 'Sevel' to find what it stands for.

This might have nothing to do with it but we used to have a Fiat X250 cab which, in addition to wind noise via the cab doors used to be tremendously draughty in that area.

When the inner plastic lining of the door was removed we found that the polythene membrane in between the outer door and inner lining, was cut in places.  This might have been deliberate, to allow air through into the cab, but it let through excess cold air and the funnelling effect was the reason behind some of the noise. 

Gaffer taping it together made a lot of diffference.

I have an 04 EK and the only wind noise I've heard is when a door has not been closed hard enough and is only on the first catch. The doors do need a hefty slam to shut them properly, but when they are it's quiet at all speeds. Maybe your door catches need adjustment.
But the EK is the low line, maybe the ES version produces more turbulence due to the overcab bulge.

Ok, thanks for the replies. I'll see if the door catches can be adjusted.

Those Sevel vans have good tolerances on the door fit. It keeps the cost down.
Some are better than others,its luck.
I once closed a door on my hand without pain. up!

Apparently it's a recognised fact that the door profiles of the Boxers from the 2004 to 2007 era were not that good and consequently caused wind noise. There was an article in one of the M'home mags only a couple of months ago.
A recognised fix was to wind the window down and physically try and bend the top of the door inwards. I'm not joking, several Peugeot mechanics have agreed with this.
We've got similar wind noise too and I've applied draught excluder in several configurations, but it never works satisfactorily. Just drive a bit slower.

That's exactly how they "fitted" doors to the original mini at Longbridge.
