Water leaking at door mirror

There appears to be water leaking in at the passenger side door mirror.

Before I start striping things apart - is this likely to be the mirror seal or the main door seal?

Might be that you need to adjust the window glass itself, so it's a better fit.

And same here. The door rubber becomes compressed with time and water is able to find a way in around the top of the mirror. I have tried various bodges with silicone and strips of rubber, but I think the only real fix is to replace the door rubbers. Mine only lets a dribble in when I use the hose to wash it, normal rain seems to be unable to get in, so I am not worrying too much. Strange - as you would have thought that the driver's side would be the first to give trouble, given that it sees the most use.
