Model 3 Window Rattling

Does anyone else have or had any issues with the windows rattling.

When driving around with the windows up on good roads no problem. On bad roads it sounds like they rattle somewhat.

However with the windows down this becomes more pronounced. And if you close the doors with the windows down it really sounds like the glass is flopping around in the door. So much so that initially I wondered if it would shatter.

The action and sound is exactly the same on both front doors which makes me maybe think it's just a bad design instead of bad install ???

The rear doors on both sides are rock sold up or down (as far as they go).

Anyone have insight ?

Never heard of rattling windows, when up. Perhaps a window regulator or some bracket is loose. And yes, when the window is down, and you shut the door, I was surprised at the rattle. I think I only did that once.
