Did this video help you?

martinitime1975: I completed the repair today, but I noticed that the auto up feature does not work anymore (auto down works). Did I miss something, or could it be an issue with the part I bought?

Gorz627: whats the black plastic part behind the car lock,at 3:47 called?

Norman Karr: How do I know whether it is the regulator or the motor failure that causes the window does not move up ?

Kai Davie: Anyone knows how to remove rear window panel for 2008 528i, I found two screws one on the bottom and one on the side toward door hinge area. Then, I can't remove the panel. Am I missing other screws? There is no screw by the door handle for 2008 528i... Please help!

Rich Rodriguez: Hey Otto its me again. My window started to tremble and make a squeaking sound on the way down its in that position now only moving up about an inch no further and back down. First would you say its the regulator or the motor? Second can I remove the window bracket mounting nuts with the window in the down position? Third could this be a simple fuse/relay issue? Help Parked in the garage.

PresidentGas1: Replaced regulator per this video (thanks)......... however after complete assembly the window .... once it has reached the full down position, at the side nearest the door lock, does not travel all the way down as 1/4-3/8 inch is still visible. Once the window is raised to the full up position it blows right through the window seal at the top door frame and jumps out of the track at that same point. So something is misaligned but I cannot determine a way to adjust this. I took the vehicle to a BMW shop and they insisted that because I did not use a genuine BMW regulator assembly, this was the issue. I argued with them over this but then went out and spent another $200 on a genuine BMW regulator........ replaced again and the same issue is present. Ever seen this before? Thanks !

Del Emerson: My regulator is fine, my motor just died. Can i replace just the power window motor or do i have to replace the motor and the regulator? thanks. Awesome video btw.

Steve Martin: The bolts on the 2 red clips that hold the window in place are not 10mm like you say in the video. I was racking my brain trying to get a 10mm socket to work like you say in the video. Its really hard to see what you're doing so I thought I just wasn't getting a clean hold on the bolt.

stevie Forbes: Excellent and helpful video, not glamorised and well put across in plain English, well done and tx

Ray Q: Great video; however, the only problem I see with this video is that it does not show how the window attaches to the guide rails on regulator and I've seen where parts are damaged or missing. For example the red clip, how does that attach to the new window regulator rails?

erickrayos: I got a 2001 BMW 325i, I am just wondering where can I buy the actual driver side window glass itself? coz the one I have on is scratched up and it really bothers me, been searching online.

Amy Amous: Can you please come do this for me

Michelle Shuttleworth: how did you keep the window up when you took the regulator out?

PrimeTimeGrimester: I have a 323ci and my passenger side door glass gets caught on the frame when trying to open the door. The regulator was just replaced. 

Nader Mchantaf: Thank you for this video, actually i'm having the same problem, same bmw model, i decided to fix it by myself but i reach a point where i can't move down the window (almost closed and jammed) and in this position i can't see and loosen the two window bolts. should i find a way to push down hard the window or there 's a step i miss in such cases because i think without disconnecting the window from the regulator, i can't pull the regulator out. help please 

Jeremy Bathan: I just replaced my regulator but after I assembled everything back the air bag light turned on, what did I do wrong?

Rich Rodriguez: In regard to Jeremy and the SRS air bag light. I did the same thing. My concern is now that the sensor has been tripped does this mean that any or all airbags will not perform until this is cleared?

jujemy2010: hi bavarian i have bmw x5 2001 and my wipes dont working can you help me to fine the locations (wipes_relay ) thanks

Coyote Arizona: Thank you so much guys! a few tools an my I pad did it for me!

Adam Timmerberg: Reverse order (in case you're wondering) Vapor barrier pannel Airbag Mirror Memory Module Get Door Panel and Attach Speakers Cables (If drivers side front door) Attach Mirror Switch Connector Attach Door Handle Cable Snap Door Panel back in Screw down the Door Panel (3 in/under arm rest, 2 under trim) Snap the Trim back in (If drivers front door) re-attach the Mirror Switch Connector (If drivers front door) Snap the Mirror Switch back in.

Wang Ken Rong: Yea I have done it twice already. It holds for a while and the clamps are hand tightened by a screwdriver then the next day I press the button to put down the window it's stuck in the frame and the rails come down without the window. I have even sprayed the frame with silicon spray in the event that the rubber grooves were too tight. Still no help! Works for a while and slides right off afterwards. 

papidondada: Awesome!! Very detailed and informative. Had same problem with driver side door. Foolproof instructional video. BMW AUGHT to do a recall on these cheap regulators and motors.

Danny McCaffrey: Holy crap. My 323's garaged with no window and this very same problem. So I sorted vids by most viewed and this tops Ie; So basically this is a common problem I take it?

Ahmed elebyany: any idea why the clips dont stick to the window? :) i developed an anger problem trying to make it work LOL plz contact me by mail;HELP!!! SOS :) Ahmed_business90@hotmail.com

Wang Ken Rong: passenger window keeps sliding out of the tightened clamps on a new window regulator, cant figure out why it keeps slipping out of the two clamps.

Robert Wu: This is a very good video. Clear and easy to understand. Thanks. I learned to do my BMW X5 without problem now.

Joel Garcia: Amazing video. Just did mine on the drivers side, this helped me so much!! Thank you

bamparin: A real pity that the BMW manufacturers can not overcome this defect in quality for so many years!! They need to listen to the consumers and realise that this issue is truly a disappointing nuisance. The smart buyer would stay away from BMs because of this. This whole process look Really complicated to do it yourself. 

Carl Ackermann: Thank you so much. Did this today with my son. Perfect 

Pablo Alemandi: freak they charge me 400 to do this crap on my m3 so I'm gonna do it my self haha freak yeah

Andre Mills: This procedure is great, I'm about to perform this on my e38 as both my drive and passenger windows have gone out. But I have one question - if the motor is dead how do I get the window down in the right place to remove the bolts holding the window as described in the video pause section?

Bruce McKinnon: Great video, Can you change the motor without removing the regulator, I have just blown the motor on my 1 series and dont need to change the regulator, thanks!

edward quinn: thanks for the video followed it step by step and replaced the regulator today without any problems. 

Issa A.: I have a 2002 325i, the wooden panel, the one that has 2 screws behind it, does that slide back on? or does it need to be glued?

Sony: I have 01 530i and the driver window just fell straight down.. if I press up all I hear is the motor adn thats all.. the window just stays at the bottom... also the rear window doesnt go all the way up.. it stay 1-2 inches low from the top

Winterever: Thanks very much! Successfully did it on my alpina!!

Kelly Silveira: My Bmw

BavarianAuto: Not sure what you mean by lock pin.

Amani213: I just replaced the driver window regulator and now the 2 rear ones went bad. Is it necessary to unplug the battery to work on the rear windows since there are no air bags in the back?

Mentalities: My windows on both sides have a hard time going up and down. After viewing your video I'm still stuck on how to repair and fix my window. Help!!

GetYaShitTogetha: How did this video get 44 Dislikes? Because BMW DEALERSHIPS watched it and realized they were losing THOUSANDS of dollars by not being able to charge people $400 for such a quick and easy job!

ROTANIMRET X: Sorry run out of space . I am just wondering if you can help me.The emergency ring in the trunk is somewhat loose , may be I accidentally pulled that thing .and it is probably why top won't open ( may be because valves in the motors are now open??) How can I restore that ring and crap the valves ( if that is the problem ) Thank you .

BavarianAuto: Sometimes the old adhesive will still work, but often it is not "sticky" enough to properly secure the vapor barrier. We do offer new adhesive in our online store at bavauto.com. The part number of the adhesive is 08612

Jojo Mojo: guys i really have a question; i tried to do this by myself but at the Airbag I was too frightend to remove it. Do I have to worry to fire it by accident? Or can i just remove it without any security issues?

BavarianAuto: Aside from any binding that may be present, have you performed the initialization procedures? This sets the up and down stops and the power curve for opening and closing. The procedure is too long for the characters allowed in this reply. It is detailed in the Bentley repair manual for the E90 chassis. Available at bavauto.com.

vzambrano821: Great video! Very useful. One sugestion: maybe show some points on where, how and why the regulator is bad.

stlee74: I have just bought a 323 se. The window motor is working, but it sounds like its come out of the rail, it doesn't really move unless I push it. What holds the glass into the rail? A clamp? Glue? Screws? Clips?

astroboy Chew: Thanks for the video. I recently replaced my E90 rear window regulator. Everything fits well. But once the window fully reclined, it had difficulty getting up.. once it starts moving, then no problem but once fully reclined, same problem. What seems to be the cause?

ltz15: Thanks for the reply ;). I did it my standard unprofessional way, just got in and took everything apart. Put it back together and its all good :). Thanks once again :)!

Steven Hylton: How do u reconnect the outer door handle. I cannot open my 1996 BMW 328i pass Door from outside but can from inside.
