Window opens during drive

I have a 2002 X5 3.0. Recently, the driver rear door window started to open unexpectedly during drives. It might take a few attemtps to get it to reclose. I had the GM module replaced yet, it didn't fix the problem. any thoughts?

Sounds like the beginning of the end for your window regulator...or other window malady that involves support or window movement.

I would check it sooner versus later...because it may eventually drop all the way down in the most inopportune moment and won't go back up without manual manipulation.
