    Can I remove this chrome trim completely with no issues? Or will it look funky / ruin the weather stripping for the window? I'm currently overseas for about a month but my cousin told me the chrome trim cracked and looks like it is going to let water through. I really don't want to spend over...

    Hi, I've got problem with driver's side window on my E46 318ti '03. Window goes only down, if I try to close window it does nothing. Tried replacing window switch and closing window with key trough lock but nothing works. Window regulator and motor works, no grinding or rattling. Problem is...

    Hey everyone, I recently joined the club with a 2003 330ci. I’ve had a few issues which I’ve sorted, but this one I’m unsure about. Both the rear vent windows open properly, but will not close. There is a click coming from the glove box when opening the windows and when I go to close them there...

    I have a 2004 BMW E46 318i Sedan and the left hand side front window (which in my case is the passenger side) clunks whenever it goes up or down. It happens when the window is about half way down it clunks and the pane of glass moves either forward or backward. The same thing happens whenever I...

    Bumped a bunch of years-old threads trying to figure this out... Basically my driver's window auto-drop - the feature that drops the window ¼" when opening the door and then shuts it when closing - is not working consistently. The strangest part that I've noticed, which is not mentioned in the...

    The seal for my rear quarter glass is weathered (see below) and I'm looking to replace it. Did my research and discovered that the seal is glued. I'm going to assume that in order to replace the seal, I need to scrape it out, clean the area, and glue in another one. Anyone know where I can find...

    So this is my first bimmer and I’ve always wanted one. This car is a dream project car. I’m having a bit of an issue that I’ve noticed. My rear window at the bottom is fogging up or hazing. It’s weird because it’s only when the air is turned on. Also my drivers side window feels loose. I’ve...

    My window on the driver side goes easily down but when i press it to go up it goes really slow and stops, but if i help it up with my hand it continues to go up and shut. I have taken out the regulator but it seems that it is fine(goes smooth both ways) and i wonder if the cable might need lube...

    Hi All, Recently had had an issue with my driver's side window that will not roll-up. As the regulator sounded fine I opened the door up to see if it has come off its track and if I could put it back on... I found this part (that looks like it has snapped off) at the bottom of the door and I...

    Hello Everyone! Hope you all are doing well. I am thinking of replacing my windshield on my 03 330xi, I go to the junkyard a lot for many parts. If I go and I find a good windshield, how hard would it be to take out of the junkyard car? And then take out my cracked windshield and put in the...

    Hello Fanatics, My 2003 330i is approaching 250k miles, in large part thanks to the knowledge shared here. I just rebuilt my lock cylinder (2nd time since I've owned the car) because the little cast piece inside broke. Put the cylinder back in the door, and found I couldn't turn the key to...

    Ever since I bought my zhp about a year ago there has been a rattling in the door when going over bumps if the window isn't up (maybe a broken clip holding the window) but the window was going up and down fine until recently so I ignored it. In the last month or so my auto down has stopped...

    both of my rear windows have stopped working and one is up but the other window is down. when i try to roll it up or down, it makes a bad crunching noise. does this mean that the regulator has gone bad? anything would help

    Hey everyone, Having some trouble with my front windows (05 M3 vert) Both of them work with the individual window switches, but the master window switch is only able to bring the front windows down, not up. At first it was just the left front window that was having this issue, but the right just...

    So my regulator has gone bad and the cables are a mess so I need to change everything. I can't seem to find a DIY video or instructions anywhere to work on a coupe. Any experiences on installation and adjustment? I'd appreciate it.

    Hi, I have an BMW e46 convertible/coupe where the driver side window is kind of loose in tilting and also tilts out a little bit. This causes the window to not slide up in the seal properly when closing the door. I have adjusted the window as much as I can by removing the door-side and turned...

    2000 323i - Passenger window worked fine, the other day it got stuck half way down. Hit the switch to bring it all the way up, it went up till about 2.5-3 inches just shy of the top. I think its registering that it is all the way up but in fact isn't, (opening and closing the door it moves...

    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?
  19. E46 General
    Good day, everyone. I have a 2001 325i in which the left front window has a pop noise when going up or down, and a gravel noise when actuated, both issues being in different spots of window travel, but consistent either up or down. I have replaced the regulator, lubed/adjusted the guides, and...

    I'd like to start my post by thanking everyone who contributes to this forum for making my life way easier when purchasing this E46, the opinions and knowledge here are amazing, so thank you. Here's my issues: Knew that the driver's side window was not working when I purchased the car but knew...
