Gentleman, the right rear window on my 540 rolled down today, but only rolled up 3/4 of the way before stopping. Something crunched inside the door panel and now the damn thing won't roll down or completely roll up. What should I be looking for when I pull the rear door panel?

Go here for "how to": http://www.bmwtips.com/

Click on "tips and tricks", then go to "general" and there are two relevant threads, one on door panel removal, another on the window regulator replacement.

Many Thanks Guys

Thanks for all the input guys, it is very much appreciated! Its always nice to see that folks will take the time to answer a question.

You guys are right, the regulator is shot to hell. I have rear airbags in the doors to I will take it to my indy and have him replace. I don't think I want to experience how fast one of those gas generators can inflate a door airbag...lol

Easy DIY. Just make sure you disconnect the battery first.
