window regulator

  1. General E46 Forum
    I needed to replace the drivers side window regulator. Though I'd done it on an earlier E46, I watched/rewatched several different youtubes. I bought good parts. The swap out went very well. I set the position of the mounting screws in the same place as the original ones. The window works...

    My passenger window works fine, lifts and closes as it should. However, for months now I've been noticing rattles when driving. I've ensured that every clip in the door panel/card has been replaced with the newer style plastic flips with foam. When driving if I lower the window a hair the...

    So I have a 325xi and my passenger window rolls up and down but not more than half way. I'm not very car savvy but I've heard the window regulators are common problems in these cars, anyone know if this is a regulator problem or something else?

    I have an 01 330i and just recently, my driver window wouldnt roll all the way up, it makes a lot of noise when it does. Now, it only rolls down, a few inches, and is difficult to get up. I have to hit down and up several times to get it to go all the way up. And sometimes i will have to...

    I know there are thousands of threads about window regulators, read them all but yet couldn't find a definitive solution to my problem. My left rear window is stuck and has always been since I bought the car almost 2 years ago, now that I've done some small DIY's I'm feeling more confident with...

    Hi everyone, After dealing with all my window regulators failing and trying the zip-tie fix to eventually replacing them. I came to a conclusion. The design is faulty. Mainly the fact that the piece that always breaks is made out of plastic. So here's my idea... if I could create a stronger...

    There is a great post on opening the FRONT door panel to repair the window regulator of an E46 here (http://forum.e46fanatics.com/showthread.php?t=356847) and I am wondering if there is a similar post for repairing the REAR (driver side) window ? Obviously there are lots of similarities but a...

    2000 328i 99k miles So when I bought the car, the buttons on the key did absolutely nothing. I assumed the key's battery was dead. But I tested it at my local autoparts dealer and apparently the battery works just fine. So what could be the issue??? Front passengers side window was making a...

    So today I noticed that my car doesn't recognize when my passenger door is open or closed. It thinks that it's always closed, so the window does not move down once the door is opened. It's not impossible to open an close the door it's just that I have to be careful or else the glass will catch...

    The passenger window regulator is busted so I took everything apart and removed the window regulator. I did disconnect the negative terminal before removing the side air bag. I tried to start the car, but it won't start, but it does have electricity. So I tried connecting the airbag again while...

    Hi All, I was wondering if anyone has a copy of the mechanical guide for the 99 model 323i? One of the rear windows seems to have become detached from the mechanism that raises and lowers the window. I want to remove the interior door panelling and see if I can fix the problem. Does anyone have...

    ...and so for the only one NOT to fail yet (knock on CF) is the front driver window regulator!!! - the most frequently operated window in this car by a long shot. What gives with these things? (that was rhetorical, btw)

    I replaced my rear right window regulator in July 06. That window probably would have opened and closed less than 5 times until now. The window regulator is bad again. Window is stuck closed. My local shop (which installed the first one) says they used the OEM regulator and its just a bad...
