Fixed my window regulator

Just wanted to say a huge thank you to all those that post. I just finished tackling replacing my window regulator. I wanted the mechanic to do it, but a quote of $650 was just too much. After "pumping" myself up for a week, I went for it. The noise was there, so I knew the motor worked. Several said it was for sure the regulator. I ordered one a week ahead, $90. Anyway, took me 3 hours by myself, and I just took my time. I just had to get over the thought of this "expensive BMW" ...and just treated it like any other car. No special tools needed. My regular sockets fit the 2 "E-10 bolt heads", so no problem there. Great write ups and the re initialization went smooth as well. I'm happy and SOO relieved. No more wind noise. no more stopping to pull my window up. I can go to the car wash again !! Anyway....thanks again ALL

I have done the regulators 7 times on my E46. It now is like a maintenance items, which it should be listed by BMW as one. It also takes me 2 hours plus to do.
