Driver's mirror glass moves on it's own

Hello everyone, as the title says I have an issue with the driver's side mirror. It moves on it's own all the way to the left when driving. I'm not sure what could cause this, the switch seems to work, and when i press the memory seat button it comes back to the saved setting. I had the windows tinted recently with ceramic tint, and I suspect water may have gotten into the door panel during installation, however i can't be sure. Any input would be greatly appreciated.

Sounds like a failing mirror adjustment switch. Cheap enough to just replace it and see if it solves the problem.

Overboost, thank you! I discovered that if I position the switch to the left mirror, the driver's side maintain's it's position. I will replace the adjustment switch, and see if that solved my problem
