  1. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    I just replaced my first window regulator. After getting the window in and attached, I wanted to test it before putting it all back together again. I turned on the car, and reattached the rear passenger switch. Pressed the button and the window worked! Wonderfulness ensued! Went back to...

    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...
  3. E85 / E86 Z4 (2003-2008)
    I have a babied 2003 Z4 with 76,000 kms on it. Today I was advised by the shop that it requires new ball joints and bushings because they are worn ($1200). Is this normal? There is more tire wear on the inner-most tread of the front tires than elsewhere but could this just indicate the need for...

    My rear driver side window won't close on 2007 335i. I can hear the motor working and clicking but the window doesn't come up. I do believe it is the regulator. Has anyone run into this? Also, could you share a DIY link so that I can replace it without having to pay a fortune. Thanks

    Q: Do we actually have a step-by-step procedure, with MEASUREMENTS, for properly adjusting the window location when replacing our BMW E39 window regulators? After a long sordid attempt at repairing my window regulator [gory details at (1) (2) (3)] I gave up on the repair and just replaced my...
  6. 7 Series - E65 / E66 (2002 - 2008)
    Just got a 2003 745Li a couple months back. Both front windows made crunching noises so read the directions on here and installed 2 new regulators. Drivers side was easy and reinitialized afterwords perfectly. Passenger side, goes through the sequence like it should, up, down, and up again...
  7. 7 Series - E38 (1995 - 2001)
    Are the E38 front window regulators similar to that on the E39? If so, do you guys have a DIY for the 'trick' to releasing tension when the cable jumps off the rollers? Likewise, do you have a DIY for putting it back together when you take apart the motor in a mistaken attempt at rectifying...
