E63/E64 Fix for power window anti trap error

This is for an 07 650i coupe. I was detailing my car yesterday and while I was in the process I noticed the driver's side window did not go down and reseal when opening and closing the door. When I started the car afterwards there was an ominous error message reading something like "window anti trap failure". I can't recall the exact message, but it sounded bad. The auto up and down would no longer work and the warning triangle was on. I went through the iDrive menus and saw the error but there was no way to reset with the iDrive that I found.

I went online and searched for a solution. I didn't find anything on this forum (sorry if this is known issue / fix), but another M5 forum suggested rolling window down and holding for 5 seconds, then roll back up and hold for 5 seconds. I started the car, rolled the window down and held it. A door like icon showed up on the dash display along with a ding sound or two then it all went away. Presto, problem fxed!

This may have fixed itself down the line, but I did not have to crack open the manual or take a trip to the dealer so I figured I would share.

I had the problem yesterday and thought about taking it to the shop. After checking the forum I was able to solve the issue myself in a matter of seconds.

Thank you for your help on this. Outstanding!!!

So i had that antitrap come on. And window made a funny sound going down. Next day it wouldn't go up. So i took the door apart. And came to find out that the regulator is in bad shape or needs to be replaced. So my question is.

Does any one has done this before?
