Anyone experience sand caught in the side window felt scratching the window?

I've been driving my Z all winter without issue, until a few weeks ago. After driving on a few road covered in sand, which is unavoidable during the winter in NY, I noticed sand was getting caught in the side window felt causing scratches on the outside of both side windows whenever they are opened or closed. As soon as I hear the scratching I try to clean out the windows, but it really doesn't seem to help. The sand seems to find its way back on the next sand covered road.:bmad:

I can't stand the sight of the scratches on the window. It seems to me that this is a design flaw. Does anyone know if I could get the side windows replaced under warranty? I know it's a long shot, but I figured I would ask. Otherwise I'm looking at $2-300 per window for replacements.
