  2. BMW Coding and Programming
    Hi All, Need help from coders incase this can be done as it would help me greatly. My F83 currently has an issue with the rear window not rolling down, this is stopping the roof from opening. But i cant get to the rear window motor/regulator without the roof being open. Is there anyone...

    Hey all, I have a 2005 X5 that I recently purchased. The dealer thought the window motor was bad in the passenger side rear door. So I replaced the motor and tried the switch and it will only work to close the window? So I plugged the old motor back in and it too will go close but not open...

    My wife said that something weird happened when she opened the lift gate glass today. She said there was a crazy noise, and the window got heavy. I figured it was some kind of spring Searched here found nothing, but I did find this on youtube. Maybe a DIY sticky?:dunno...

    I continue to have the diagnostic code A699 come up. I have seem instructions on adjusting the rear window hall senor, but none of the instructions cover getting access to the sensor. I have searched through this forum and others but I am not finding anything.:confused:

    I have accidentally closed the rear window with the power plugs disconnected when I tried to remove a part for cleaning because my rear wiper stuck.. Now I am obviously not able to open the window separately with the switch. The only video with a similar issue I found is an E61 video...
  8. F30 / F31 / F32 / F33 / F34 / F36 (2012 - current)
    I've never tried coding and I'm not sure if I'm missing something when I read the pdf of what can be coded on the 435i GC. Has anyone successfully coded it such that the rear windows can go all the way down? Seems ridiculous that they only go about 60% down.

    Anyone had the problem of rear electric sun blind needing "help" to retract, it goes up perfectly but the arms get stuck on the way back down and i find it quite annoying as i live in Portugal which is a fairly sunny country with need of rear sun blind most daytimes but obviously not at night...
  10. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    So someone broke into my car halloween night. They broke the passenger side rear window(that rolls). I called up the dealer and he said it costs $166 for new window. But then, when I asked for a price quote, he said $1440 depending on what else needs to be replaced: the moldings, motor etc. I...

    When I bought the car all the electronics worked fine. except the radio. Only one speaker (right front) works :-( . all of a sudden both rear windows stopped working together. if the rear window switches are used, nothing happens. If I use the front driver switches, They operate fine. I switched...

    Hey guys, first post. Today I fixed a customer's 98 323i-C RL window regulator (which came with the motor) and I wanted to show you how I did it, because I love the community and I wanted to contribute. Here's a picture of the window I'm talking about. It was loose and had fallen down inside the...

    Someone broke into my truck and shattered my rear passenger window. Ive since bought a new window and am having issues trying to fit it in. Can anyone explain to me how to do this? Thanks.

    A few weeks ago The rear window switches just stopped working. I have checked the glove box fuses,trunk fuses, and tried cleaning the driver side window stop switch connection. I can roll the rear windows up and down with the driver door panel. Did I miss something? Is there a relay for just the...
  15. X1 E84 (2011 - 2015)
    Hi all, The elements that are outside the sweep of the rear wiper blade are not heating up and defogging my rear window. I have booked a service appointment to hopefully correct this issue, but in performing a search in these very forums, I have come across a few posts implying that the outer...

    Hello, Bimmers! First time poster, long time lurker. I've had my 1995 525i for about three months and have used Bimmerfest to resolve a bunch of minor problems. Unfortunately, I couldn't find a fix for this window problem, so I've registered and have officially joined Bimmerfest. So, my rear...
  17. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    I know there are a ton of posts regarding what seems to be a universal problem with the rear window regulators and the "pulley" slipping off the track. I am hoping someone can comment on how the bmw window repair kit holds up over time. I've done my research on this. I don't want to spend the...
  18. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    Hi! The rear window heater stopped working in my 2004 E60 520ia. I know this is a commom problem with the wire harness in E61, but I can't find anything about this issue in E60. The light on the switch turns on, but nothing happens. The fuse is fine (40A), and power is present. There must be a...

    Hi everyone I have a weird thing happening to my 2006 750i. Over the past two months I've noticed that in two areas the color of the interior rear deck is turning dark brown/black. It looks as though it is burning or something. I have tried to clean it but nothing works. I have noticed that when...

    Hi! I'm trying to remove the rear driver's side window regulator (and window since it's attached) in my '91 325i cabrio. My Bentley manual says to undo two bolts at the top and then the whole thing should lift out. No such luck. I undid the bolts and the window-regulator is not budging. Is...
