The seal on the mirror mount is the culprit. Roll the window down and squeeze, by hand, on both sides of the triangular mount to tighten the grip on the glass.
Next up, lift the mirror casing gently upward to tilt the mount in toward the door frame.
If this does help, get some soft rubber tubing or thick wire and slide it into the doorframe seal. Only the first 5-6inches, this will exert more pressure on the mirror mount hopefully making things quiet!
I have done all three and it works fine, expect on sub-zero mornings here in the northern hemisphere, because the seals are too stiff at -10 C

I would recommend replacing the "stab assy", part no. 62310AA010, which is a bracket mounted felt pad that pushes the window inward. There are two in each door, and you will need to remove the inner cladding to get at them. Removing the rubber trim/seal at the top of the door - single screw on the trailing edge, and slide it back - also helps access.
Do this before playing with the preload!
