Actually, the sole purpose of a wind deflector is to...
Get this ----> Deflect the wind from entering your car when you have the sunroof partially open.
Usually, people want the sunroof open to allow the sun in, so that they can tan the bald spot on the tops of their heads. But then they run into the problem of the wind blowing their comb-overs all over the place, ruining their sense of freedom.
So those people buy wind deflectors so that they can tan their bald spots in peace.
The reason why it's making noise while you are driving, is, well, simply because it's pushing air out of the way, which in and of its self, creates noise.
So, your choices are keep the wind deflector, and live with the noise, buy some earplugs to wear while you drive around all the time to lessen the noise, or remove the wind deflector, and wind up listening to other noises instead.
