A side door window regulator may fail causing the window to stop working, in some eases falling into the door. Replacement of the failed regulator will be required to correct this concern.

  • Visitor,

    Rolled down rear window on my BMW 325i and hear a loud pop like breaking glass. Opened the door up and sure enough it was the window regulator that was broken on my car with 46K miles. BMW should be forced to repair this under a recall.

    Rear window regulator broke in the down position. You can hear the motor trying to move the window when you hit the button, but nothing happens. Part had to be replaced at the expense of $240

    Just put window down today passenger side window will not go up. Bmw should recall the junk materials they used in such a pricey vehicle. Hardly ever put my windows down so cannot blame it on overuse.

    Just occurred 2/18/2015. The rear window drivers side failed to go all the way up and stuck in the middle. When tryimg to get it to go down it sounded as if the window just fell and broke inside the door also making a grinding noise. It wwould not go up or down after that. I removed the door panel and found that the silver metal cable had broke free and became completely caught up in the pulley of the motor and was mangled. The cable itself could probably be replaced however it probably would just do it again so I think I will just have to replace the motor itself but its difficult to tell where the cable attaches to and I have been unable to find any clear pictures of this assembly in place showing how it should go. The photos of the part do not show how it is to look assembled. Would love to know where to find a photo of it assembled showing in detail how it should look.
