Works perfectly

Hi Lance,

Just wanted to let you know I've received the kit and it has been installed and works perfectly. Although I had to shave a little off one of the pieces due to the clip on my regulator being slightly bent. After shaving the edge of the piece it worked perfectly.
Thanks for such a simple remedy to an irritating BMW design oversight.

Adam

Lance,
I'm incredibly happy I found this thread. My fiance has a 1997 528i, and the driver's rear window isn't working anymore. Pretty sure this is the fix, I just have to get time to verify it. Regardless, could you please PM me with the info and prices for the repair kit? If it's cheap enough, we may go ahead and get one for the other side too. Thanks.

Ben

PM sent Ben, best part of all is that the kit includes everything you need to repair both rear windows!

Thanks,
Lance

estimated delivery time?

Hi Lance, I just ordered one thru PayPal last night and already have my door taken apart.

Obviously, my next question is when will I get your amazingly elegant gizmo?

thanks,
Jim

It's all up to the postman now! Shipped today and on it's way to you. You should have it by the end of the week latest.

Thanks,
Lance

A million thank yous. I am so glad I found this solution. I seem to go through window regulators as if it were part of a lifetime employment scam for my Bimmer mechanic! thanks again!

Hi Lance, Looks like I would be interested in purchasing your kit (assuming it works with 1999 540?). Please email me the directions on how to purchase it at mishapiterATyahooDOTcom. Thanks!
