I found that the plate slips paste the plastic gear, causing the window to not move. So I followed the DIY directing you to put in two wood screws, yank out the plate and replace the plastic gear. Upon inserting the screws and not having any luck pulling the guts out, I found that the window went down and back up without any extra laboring of the window motor. So I left the screws in, used a dremel tool to cut them with enough left to twist them out later and still be able to glue the plastic covers back in. I now have 4 working windows. One little niggle is that the windows do not sense when they are topped or bottomed out. This may be because some slip between the metal plate and the plastic gear causes a sensor to stop the motor. Either way, my windows go up now and I don't look like a chump when I go through the drive through.

Here's my YouTube video:
Nice post, but I would suggest making a new thread on the regular forum rather than posting this in this pictures thread. Great info to know.

Aww yeaaa, E32 rear seat console

All you have to do for proper installation is remove the bracket from the one you have in your E34 and put it on this one. It's actually as simple as that.
