Windshield replaced tuesday. NOISE FROM 40 MPH up!!

Had my 91 300e in at a good shop to replace the original windshield with a sekurit brand (currently used in MB/bmw).As i left and started driving it i immidately noticed excessive wind noise from around the wiper arm/motor area! Not to mention the trim above the drivers side too! I brought it back in, had the tech road test it and do a leak/water test w/ compressed air. He said at the first time that its "hard to tuck the windshield under the wiper arm and get a good seal". Any of you experience this before and how did you correct it? I might as well not even have a windshield at all as loud as this thing gets![:(] Please advise

Had this happen on a previous car of mine. It's a lousy install job. Either get them to fix it or take it to a shop that knows how to do it right.
