There is a TSB Bulletin on issue. Number:12-82-04 dated 04/15/04.
Involves Replacing Door Mirror Gussets. First try opening window and squeezing rubber together (that glass runs through) by mirror to see if that helps reduce noise. I believe this is caused by closing door hold glass instead of door!
Replacement parts are:
Right Gusset PN 61158AE00B
Left Gusset PN 61158AE01B
I had left one changed at body shop (while car was there) and now its so quiet the right one is annoying me!

first obtain a replacement .the cover with tape to prevent shattering the glass then carefully prise of the glass with a screwdriver refitting should be just a case of cleaning any glass away and removing adhesive tape and refitting the glass the heating element is part of the housing and the heat should just transfer through the glass ..not a hard job ..just tricky and time consuming ..if the housing has been damaged .then its a bit more difficult ..first obtain a replacement and then remove the door card then the fixings should be visible remove them and the mirror housing should come loose remove any wiring from the loom then fix the new unit connect any wiring then refit the fixing screws and then replace the door card ..again not the most technical but of work but time taken will show in the end result ..dont loose you temper as it is a bit fiddly ..if in doubt get halford to do it for you or any other similar garage
You can replace it a couple of ways, my wife broke my side mirror with a paint ball gun, so I just cut a piece of mirror and glued it in the holder. Worked great for years, Till I found a new mirror, and took the real glass out and snapped it in the holder. But you can remove the holder by taking off the plastic cover inside the car behind the mirror, unbolt the holder and hang on to it, it is heavy. You might have to pull the door panel to get the wire disconnected. Then you can either replace it or work on it easily. Hope this helps.
remove the broken glass with putty knife. go to a auto glass shop they can sell you a replacement heated mirror glass. the new glass is just glued to plastic housing in mirror and just plug in 2 little wires to back of glass were heat element is.hope this helps good luck.
