I assume he tried the door seal mod? It's really effective for door rattles and road noise and marginally effective for the whistle. Sounds like he doesn't have to worry about it now.

The whistle can be tracked down using painters tape by taping over various suspect parts. Some guys have found the whistle at the rubber windshield molding.
