Mein Auto: 2002 530i
Driver's Window Does Not Go Down

Recently the driver's door window on my 2002 530i stopped going down. At first I thought it was frozen after a recent snow but the temps have risen above freezing and the other three windows work fine. When I depress the button switch I can hear the regulator motor trying to work, brief clicking sounds before releasing the switch. I also note the window trying to move ever so slightly. I am guessing bad regulator. Haven't removed the door panel yet (waiting for a warmer day) to examine the mechanism. Any diagnostic or repair suggestions! Anything I should be looking for? Many thanks.

You need a new regulator. The later ones can't be fixed.
