Lance, Thanks for developing this window repair kit. I fixed the window on my '97 528i yesterday, and it works-just like a real window!

The original window slide on mine was bent and twisted, but after some filing with a Dremel, your kit fit, and it worked great.

I did find that the larger Torx bolt on my window was a #30, and I used a 2" wide plaster spatula to pop off the door panel-it worked more easily than a flat blade screwdriver.

Thanks again, your kit saved me a lot of money.

Ray

PS Glad you like the Barbera Red on my 335i

Good deal Ray,
the window bolt seems to come in a couple of sizes, and seems to be more because of the day of the week instead of year of the car I love having happy customers!

Thanks,
Lance

Anyone have the broken spool parts? I could probably make aluminum replacements for under $60.

I spent about n hour pulling the whole door apart, I leave for two seconds and my friend decides to take over on this project and pulls the motor off the regulator then a spring popped out and there went the whole project, there's no avoiding getting a regulator now. There's a guy over here that gives you 50 bucks for your old one, and charges 100 for a refurbished one with reinforced cables and such. I'm going to go that route, I tried Lance.

I hate it when that happens! It's always hard to know when to tell your friends not to help too much

i bought this, but DO NOT buy this if your wire that loops around the regulator is completely out of the track. Mine slipped out of both the pulleys, and it was IMPOSSIBLE to put it back in. Although, I installed this as preventative maintenance on the other side, and it is a great product!
