A thud sound when window reaches all the way down

Hi guys - wondering if anyone knows why the window on the driver side makes a thud sound when it is lowered all the way. In other words it does not have a soft landing. Otherwise it is working fine. The passenger side goes down all the way without any noises.

Thanks for your help in advance.

FYI... I had recently opened the door panel to fix the side mirror switch. Is there a screw or some adjustment I missed to place back?

I think theres a rubber bushing at the bottom of the regulator that cushions the blow. not 100% sure though on the coupes. maybe open it up and look around?

It might be part of the regulator

I haven't gotten around to opening it up again. Does anyone know if this would cause a problem in the future? If not, I might just live with it. Would focus the time and energy on other things instead.
