Default 93 camry has loud wind noise near side mirrors

i am trying to figure out where the wind noise is coming from on my 93
camry V6 whilst cruising. it seems as though it is coming from around the
side mirrors somewhere. i have tried to eliminate the noise by sealing the
the area on the inside of the car opposite the mirror but it doesn't seem
to help. thought it was the front side vents initially but they were
closed. maybe it is because the front doors are frameless around the
windows and there could be air getting in near the side mirrors, i don't
know. it's driving me crazy. an otherwise quiet car is spoiled by wind
noise when driving. can anyone offer any help?

Reminds me of a Ford I was driving doing the same thing. I wound down the
window and passed my hand around the mirror until the noise stopped or
altered. It was a shallow hole in the moulding which was being resonated by
the wind passing over it. I stuffed a piece of chewing gum init.

Never had that problem, but have heard you can slip a dollar bill
through the weatherstripping with the door closed, and then move it
around the frame to search for loose areas.
