06 Window Issue

Hey Everyone,

So my passenger window has been giving me hell alsmost since I got this car. So the regulator went out about 8 months ago and I got one off of Ebay (bad idea) and got new clips. Last week the window just drops. So last Friday I go to the dealer and get new clips, regulator, and bushing. I install everything and it works great BUT when the window is all the way down and I go to roll it up the clip gives a liitle and the window slides towards the outside of the door and once the window is almost up it slides back to where it should be. First impression the clip is faulty but I tried it with the other clip as well as another new one and it did the same thing.

Is there something I missed when installing it? I dont know what to do. I feel like the hole in the window is too big lol and I need a new window but that would just be weird. Any help would be great.

I'd love to hear any input anyone has in this also! I have a 2001 x5 and I also replaced regulator with eBay one and it constantly still pops out of the black clips that hold the nuts to the white plastic dog. About once a month the black clips break completely and dealer says the regulator must be going out, but it's brand new?! Is there an adjustment somewhere? It's quite frustrating and I'm personally tired of taking dang thing apart and Justin my knuckles replacing those clips!

Not sure if you figured out the problem on your window.. BUT I did FINALLY realize that when I was installing the black window clips and the nut and bolt, I was installing the nut incorrectly.. the nut actually goes on backwards... the flat part is on the outside of the bolt.. if that makes sense. my window has been perfect since I figured out what a dum dum I was.. In my defense, the nut has a flat side which is normally the side that gets threaded first, but in this case you must thread from the other side
