How do I take the drivers side door panel off on 2005 BMW X5

My drivers side window is down and won't go up. I can hear the motor running but the window doesn't move. How do I take the drivers side door panel off, and will I set off the side air bag?

It isn't an easy process. You need some torx drivers. You have to remove the side air bags, etc... I strongly suggest to get a repair manual, you can get a good one here: http://www.eautorepair.net/Marketing/Default.asp?VID=125669 Follow the manual's instructions! The problem is seems to be with the window regulator. They fails quite often. Zee
