Not a problem :)
Seems like a similar amount of labor to replace the voltage regulator, but does seem like the problems stem from the alternator - which does help. Thank you!

Gentlemen... Once again, as I keep saying, I have had them (batt and alt) tested. Tested fine. That's why I'm stumped that the light keeps comin on.

Awesome post - thank you

This was such a helpful post - thank you.
Only thing I ran into was not having the right sized socket or screw for the bolt that holds the white box in place (was one in the very back). I have a...

Problem solved

I should've posted this a loooong time ago;

Window needs a priest issue resolved.
Removed the fuse when the window was up so it would stay up until I could figure it out.

Battery light comes on then goes off - alt. and batt test strong. What gives?

These posts seem the closest to my issue, but I'm still stumped;

My battery light comes on when I start the car. When it warms up, light goes off. I can drive it, and the light might come on...

SilberVogel, those were fantastic links, thanks for posting.

I have an '03 325i. She's solid and I don't see any major leaks when looking underneath with the car raised.

Yeah I swapped the switches, but that wouldn't affect the regulator - would be two separate issues, no?

When the window does work, it works just fine - not unusually fast, or slow, no weird...

Any other possibilities I could try to narrow things down?

Yep that's right - only one window - and I tried locking that center lock - no dice. Still happens.

My window needs a priest

Hi all,

My vehicle: 2003 325i.

The car is solid, but the windows have a strange issue I can't easily get an answer for - wondered if anyone here has dealt with this first hand.

Well I think your opinion counts, and it's pretty standard knowledge too, that if you buy a BMW it needs to be a good one. I'm torn because I really like this ZHP 330, and I don't mind the work. I...
