94 325 convertible door switch issue

So I bought a 94 convertible a few months ago, when I was doing some work kn the garage, I disconnected the battery when I had the windows down and the top down. Afterwards I had to reset the windows to get them to operate properly but the ongoing issue is the passenger door window.
Normally when you handle is used it drops the window roughly a centimeter so that the door can be opened. But something will trigger the switch and drop the window a little when I drive, specifically if the door is pressed inwards towards the car.
I have the bentley manual and it shows the switch should be in the strike on the door frame on the body itself but that must be on newer models.
Does anybody have a solution or know where that micro switch is on the 94 vert?

Welcome to Bimmerfest!

Are you sure your striker doesn't have a tiny black button? I don't have a cabriolet, but my coupes (2 93s and a 95) all have the actuator in the striker.

Yeah that's what i was looking for because that was shown in the manual. But I dont see anything on it. I figured its probably based in the assembly for the latch in the door itself.
