Unhappy Power window motor???

Hi I finally just picked up my 1994 325is. It is like new, minus a couple problems..... This post is for the passenger window. It rolls down just fine. BUT, A couple times when rolling up, it stopped got kind of stuck, then rolled down, even though I was pressing up on the switch.

Any suggestions? I was thinking the regulator/Mechanical gear....

Yeah, it's the overload sensor tripping and causing the window to go back down. I'd start with pulling off the door panel, getting some good lithium grease and grease the regulator gearing, rollers, and track. See what happens with that.

Chances are it's the internal plastic bushings that ride along the regulator. Replace those, and it should work fine. I have a tech article coming soon on this, but here's a photo:

Cool Thanks for the info. Is there 1 or 2 per door? Do you have a part number for these? Either Pelican/ or a BMW number.

There are two per door, for a total of four. Here's a link to the part:

http://www.pelicanparts.com/cgi-bin/ksearch/pel_search.cgi?command=DWsearch&description=51321938884

you need a total of four for both doors. They come with the inside metal clip (if I remember correctly).

Hope this helps,

Wayne
