Hi,
I have a 2004 bmw 530I and the front passenger window does not work. I also tried the switch in driver side but it does not work too. Which part do think has problem? and how can I fix it?

Could be one of several problems like the motor, the regulator or a relay. You can remove the door panel and try to run a jumper wire directly to the motor to see if the window does anything or you need to have a dealer or a good electrical indy check it. Nobody on this board will be able to tell you exactly what it is....
Edit: You can also check your fuses but I don't believe the windows have individual fuses.

Do you think that I can open the panel since it has the Air bag?

You'll need to disconnect the battery first or else you'll get a historical SRS fault (which only a dealer can clear out) if you disconnect the airbag.

I just figured it out that the problem is because of the switch. Do you know how I can replace that? And should I open the door panel or I can just change the switch? Any DIY?
