Mein Auto: 1994 BMW 325is
Driver-side window problem

Hi, i have a 94 BMW 325is. A week ago the driver side window started "bouncing" when i drive. I call it "bouncing" because when i drive the window goes up and down very fast. You know when you get out of the car how the window drops a little and then goes up when closed to seal the window. When i drive it moves that little bit, but for along time and rapidly. the only way i can get it to stop is if i hold the window up for a few second. If i hit a bump or something it starts up again. It is very anoying!!! I have no idea why it started or what to do to fix it. Is there an adjustment i can make on the window motor to fix it? Any advice/help would be much appreciated!! Thanks.

you can try to adjust the latch striker, but most likely you need to replace it.
