sdfbtnsfgd: When I create a car from scratch I will make a design so that all parts that can fail and need replaced will be removable in 10 seconds and require no tools. And the only screws to use will be standard hex screws. I considered phillips, but they strip, so hex is better. And everyone has an allen wrench laying around. Clearly, car designers never considered the work required to replace simple parts.

sdfbtnsfgd: PRO WORK

Too bad BMW didn't make their window regulators with similar quality ;)

BIMMER ZEIT: This is a classic! I've just done this repair on my channel as well with a longgggg DIY in 4K resolution if anyone needs additional help. Just reach out!

J. Frank Parnell: God I hate the phrase "installation is the reverse of removal". No it isn't. Show the whole process for Christ's sake.

Chuck Hickl: This is a straight forward repair for anyone with even a small amount of mechanical skill and a desire to save some money. I do agree it's odd how these regulators fail so frequently. Both my rear ones have failed over the last year in my 2006 330xi. Odd as I rarely have rear seat passengers and those windows are very rarely used. In looking at the parts that have failed, it looks to be sub par materials used in the plastic parts. Thanks for the great video.

stuarth43: good vid but once more a man calling a screw a bolt, listen please a bolt is a thing with a nut on the thread, cap screw is a fastening with either a hex head or socket head, with part of the screw plain without thread, used to fasten a cap, such as bearing cap or cylinder heads a machine screw can have any head, but is threaded all the way. Take this, from heavy engine fitter

Lance White: You guys rock,your the bomb,thank you so much!!!

Taylor West: Is there a company that makes a high quality regulator? I'm getting tired of replacing them.

Jake Oswald: Lol, this video saved me from a 775$ quote. Bought a regulator for 26$ and did it myself on 1.5hrs. I know nothing about cars besides I like em. Peace

Douglas Rogers: Thank you so very much. Clear and concise. Perfect direction.

Ray Pooley: I know this is an old thread but I have just replace both of my front regulators using this excellent video. Many thanks to Otto for taking the time to share his skills. However, I did a couple of thinks differently. I removed the motor from the regulator before I removed the regulator from the car. You can do it both ways. I had trouble disconnecting the connector on one of my motors so I didn't want to force it. The other thing I did was to leave the 5 regulator nuts loose before lowering the window down and connecting it to the window carriers of the new regulator. I found it a lot easier to marry the two up if I had a little play in the regulator. I say loose but not so much that it rattled. Then, once the window was attached to the carriers correctly, I nipped up the 5 regulator bolts without fully tightening them. I tightened the just enough to allow them to slide a little if a force was applied. I left them like that while testing the new regulator. The reason for doing this is to allow everything in the regulator/window assembly to line up and minimize stress within the assembly during operation. I moved the window up and down through a few cycles and then fully tightened the 5 nuts with the window in the fully down position. I read a lot about these regulators failing and it is always the carriers that fail at the point where they are connected to the cable talurits. I think this might be due to the way that they are assembled. Even the smallest misalignment can result in increased resistance to the movement of the window and that can place greater stress on the cable/carrier harness. By the way, you should lube the window runners too when you are doing this job. Use something like a silicone based spray lube. You might want to order some spare door card clips too. I broke a few trying to put the cards back on the doors. TBH that's the biggest pain in the butt when doing this repair. That's all folks.

EpicBeauty: May I have a list of the tools I would need to replace this please?

Usagi: Great instruction!

David Dominguez: Thank you for this video! Just replaced my window regulator on my E46 - would not even have thought about attempting it without this video. Keep it up!

marcos a: Don't forget to reseal the vapor barrier when you put it all back together. If you don't do it correctly, you'll find wet carpet and you'll be taking the door panel off again to repair that. Cannot stress that enough. Otherwise; a very good tutorial.

Eduk Gomez: Buen vídeo amigo,gracias me ayudó bastante.👍
