Cool unusual noise in drivers door

Thanks for your reply,
after viewing the video on how to remove the door panel I realized that the only thing that could probably be making this noise is a malfunctioning window regulator.
The noise that makes is right-when you start to lower the window. It sounds like one of the bolts that holds the window to the regulator might be loose.
After viewing the video. The noise could be a struggling regulator trying to start the downward motion of the window, and it may be jumping out of the gear.
After speaking to my BMW guru. He also felt it could be the regulator. So here's my plan
1. Order new regulator
2. When I get it . I will remove the door panel.
3. Check to see that the bolts are tight and if they are
4. Replace the window regulator.
Just in time for Christmas.
If you have any more input I would appreciate hearing from you.
