Wind noise? I'd complain to the manufacturer! Tell Oldsmobile they can have their shoddy car back!

When I bought mine I had a little wind noise on the freeway. Of course I should have left well enough alone. I tried to bend and massage the seal where the air was coming through into a shape that would do a better job sealing it up. I only made it worse!

Fortunately I live in Atlanta, Georgia where i's nice and warm most of the year so I drive with all the windows down whenever I can. It was 75 F today so I drove around in the '56 Cadillac with all the windows down. It's great.

One thing I've found that helps with old weatherstripping if it isn't hard and dried out is to spray it with silicone spray frequently. It helps to soften it up and better conform to the shape of the window. My weatherstrips are almost totally quiet, now. Spray the silicone down along the window run channels to keep the windows operating smoothly.

Now get rid of those ridiculous lights on the grill!

First of all, what the heck is a climakopressor? Do you mean air conditioning compressor?

For future reference, Rock Auto is a good source of information , even if you don't buy parts from them. You can get part numbers which you can cross reference among brands. Here's an a/c belt for your car and it gives the measurements. You can use the information to cross reference whatever brand is available locally.

Here's an AC Delco brand - https://www.rockauto.com/en/moreinfo.ph ... 14&jsn=414
