Lance,

I have a 2000 528I. The front passenger window just went last night. The motor spins and attempts to roll the window up, but is stops 1/3 the whay up. Does this sound like something your kit would repair? My email is ramharleyvette@yahoo.com.

Sincerely
Gerry

Hi Gerry,
Sorry the kit only works on the rear windows and only on cars made up to 6/99, after that the regulator style changed and breaks in a different way.

E39 rear window regulator repair kit available

Lance,
I hope you make a bundle from this little engineered kit you devised. I think my left rear went tonight. (motor works, so switch works but, window doesn't move.) I'll be looking at it tomorrow. Please PM me the info so I can order as soon as I check it out.
Thanks with my sincere appreciation.

Help needed for E34 window

TO Lance,

I was reading past posts concerning individual's rear window issues. Please help me with any suggestions to replace or repair my 1995 E34, 525i. the rear windows will go down but not up(close). Do I need new regulators, or can a repair solve issue.


Thanks,

Robert

Hi Robert,
Bottom line, I don't know. I'm thinking that the E34 used a rack and pinion type of regulator not the wire and pulley type the E39 uses. My best advice is to open it up and take a look at how they work. When you push the up button does the motor make noise? If not maybe it's just a bad switch??? Good luck and sorry I couldn't help more this time!

Lance

Lance,

Thanks for responding, yes both window switches are OK, I hear the motor turning when the switch is pushed for close, but windows do not close. I think I will just purchase the regulators, as I think the motors should be OK too.

Robert

It worked!

I just finished installing the repair on my 528i 1997. The video instructions were especially helpful. Thank you so much.

Lance,
This is just what I was looking for. Both of my rear windows are out of operation, and I have just been driving with it that way as buying new stuff is way too expensive. Please PM me and let me know what you need from me to order these.
Thanks sooooo much.
Russell

Mein Auto: BMW 528i 1998
i was about to get the window regulators off Stealership, which they charge $$$$$...than i searched and got directed to this....

I have 98 BMW 528i, and my rear right window does not go all the way down, it get stuck 3/4 going down (it make a sound when it reaches to end and i immediately stop thinking something will break if i continue to press window switch), i believe it has something to do with window regulators, would your kit repair my condition...

Also how can i order your kit, can you send me the infor please at rushang.s.patel@gmail.com

Thank you so much!!
