    Sounds like the window regulator is bad. If you want to remove the panel, try getting a repair manual (these are good for BMW http://bit.ly/Bentley_Repair_Manuals). You may need to replace the regulator, so try looking down into the door from the top adn see if you can see where it is broken. You may need to take this to a shop, or get teh manual and a new regulator and do it yourself.
