Subaru Tech here, when we get these wind noise problems we first verify the noise. Then, open the door and brace it open with your leg and put both hands on the gusset that the mirror attaches to, then we pull in and down as hard as we can to bend the gusset in as far as it can go. these gussets are very stout, don't worry about breaking anything. Then do the same thing on the opposite side of the car, then we would road test the vehicle again. If the noise(s) are gone, then only the diagnostic fee would be charged, if the noise(s) are still present, the gussets need to be replaced... I have tried many different ways of getting around replacing the gussets on my own car. But in the end I had to replace them, very easy to replace, must remove the door panel and mirror. Once the new one is in(loosely), install the mirror and roll the window all the way up while you have the door open. Push the gusset down and as close to the window as possible, then tighten it. Install the door panel and your done. Hope this info helps!
