  8. Another slow window thread...

    DIY: Do It Yourself
    I apologize for starting another slow window thread, but I couldn't find exactly what I need. My driver's side window rolls down fine but rolls up very slowly. I have done the zip tie fix, and I do not hear any cracking or popping at all. Could this be the motor that is going bad? If so, are all...
  9. How about a sticky for Donor disassembly FAQ?

    Spec E46 racing class forum
    How about a (moderated) sticky topic for donor car disassembly FAQ ? Growing the class depends 100% on new cars being built, so how about using the group's collective wisdom to save new builders time and trouble ??? My first submission would be: Remove the front seats and side windows before...

  11. Question about window regulator failure

    General E46 Forum
    My front passenger side window regulator has failed. It had been on it's way out for a while (grinding/clicking noise, slow window movement). Now it's totally kaput. The mechanism can no longer support the weight of the window and, as a result, it completely retracted into the door. When I...
  12. Driver window problem. Regulator or something else?

    E46 Xi Forum
    My driver window is taking a long time to go down and longer to go up. I don't think its the regulator because it moves up and down all the way, just squeaks and creaks. Also takes a good amount of time to complete the process. Does my window just need to be re-aligned or is it my window...

  15. Window Regulator DIY

    DIY: Do It Yourself
    As we all know, the long list of Preventative Maintenance (PM) items for our cars is long, and at times, expensive. The window regulator is yet another aspect of our cars that, with time, will ultimately fail. However as I can tell, there is no official DIY addressing this issue. This will be my...
  16. Window Regulator or Clips Replacement?

    General E46 Forum
    Hi, so the driver's side window of my 328 keeps making a clicking noise as I roll my window up/down. It sounds like something is hitting the glass and now my window is off balance, making a tiny gap in the top left corner. When I close my door it sounds like there's a piece that broke off & is...
