  1. General BMW Questions
    X3 window regulators were replaced and now they work in the opposite way. Press up & they go down. Press down, they go up! Genuine parts used. Anyone experienced the same?

    I just had my (BMW X3 20d SE) car in a garage to replace the front two windows & regulators. When I collected the car I noticed the window buttons are now working in the opposite way. When I press down, the windows roll up! And I now have to pull up on the switch to roll them down. So...

    Car has 180k~ miles drives great with the car off or on the windows randomly roll half way down (about every 20 to 50 seconds) then roll all the way down on their own any ideas?

    I replaced my 2002 325ci Convertible right front window regulator last night and after finishing, the car would crank but not start. I did remove the side airbag and had to reconnect the battery a couple times without the airbag in place knowing I would have to have the airbag light reset. It...

    I don't think it's normal, but this is what I just found when I removed the driver side front door panel and vapor barrier. No wonder the window just suddenly fell down and disappeared. These two clamps were just sitting on the inside sill of the door. I'm sure a new window regulator is in...

    I recently had my rear passenger regulator replaced . The car is a 330i, 2006 and I did not go to the dealer. I used a recommended mechanic and I just don't believe he has the knowledge to fix the problem. since it was the rear window, I never put the window down. fast forward two months, and my...

    My front windows are slowing down, enough to annoy the living crap out of me... Since, I rarely ever have anyone sit in the back seats, the window motors in the back are practically new... as the title says, i understand that the front and the back (and left and right) part numbers are...
  8. Do-It-Yourself H.Q.
    The car: 2001 325i The window regulator for the front passenger window on my vehicle was replaced by its previous owner several months ago. All of the sudden, it quit, and made a terrible grinding noise. I take apart the door to see this: I'm new to this car, but I'm positive the cable...

    I have a manual 2000 323i and have been searching for answers to my electrical problems without any luck. The following has been going on: -SES light on consistently; I know I need to replace an ignition coil and am replacing all 6 as well as all spark plugs this week. I'm wondering if the...

    Next person to replace their window regulator, please tell us what BRAND you bought (and come back here when/if it breaks). Given the OEM brand (Kuster) breaks a lot, this thread today got me thinking that we don't really know which BRAND is the best brand of window regulator to buy: > E39...

    So when I bought the car, the window didn't roll down. This didn't bother me until a few days ago when I hit the switch and the window went down, and didn't come back up. I know it's not that switches or the wiring because I had that looked at, but what I'm wondering is if it's the regulator, or...

    Hey there Bimmerfest. I have owned a 2001 330i for the past 12 years and have racked up 120,000 miles. I am considering getting a new 2014 328i. However, given some challenges with quality with my model over the last 12 years, I am re-entering the BMW market cautiously. So, what is the...

    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...
  15. 7 Series - E65 / E66 (2002 - 2008)
    Right before my car passed inspection, my passenger side window stopped going up and is now stuck in the door panel. Ordered the regulator but have no idea how to replace it yet. In the meanwhile, I have parked the car in the garage and after two weeks of not being used my 745i doesn't want to...

    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...
  17. 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...
