I merged your two threads into one on the E90 3 series forum and updated your subject to something useful. Did you search around for others with a similar problem? I am guessing it is the window regulator that went out on you, it is a common problem.

Time for a new window regulator. 4 or 5 hundred bucks at a dealership. Maybe less at a competent indy shop. Much less if you DIY. But don't use a cheap part. OEM only

It's less than $75 for the part and 30 minutes to change. Do it yourself, several YouTube vids show you how. It's very easy.

Didn't do it my self- friend help me. Take him 30 min. My two rear windows regulators died one weeks a part.

On my 330I '06 that happened to my right rear window. It was the regulator. I purchased new at Oreilly Auto. It was about 75 bucks and took about 1 hour for me to change. Have had no issues. Do buy aftermarket regulator. Your symptoms match the replacement.

Use duck tape to hold the window up while your replace the regulator. Two strips 6 inches down the window and to the top of door will hold th window up while you replace the regulator.

My E90 335i has had 2 window regulators go out..That is what happened to yours. Buy the part from BMW dealership online and DIY.. $100... Or independent BMW mechanic will do it for $300ish..
