ive tried 2 different motors so far and neither of them has worked. the motors seem to work great when the window is going down but dont have enough power to push the window back up inless i help it along. even then it gets jammed 2 or 3 times. if put a crank on it... can i just put any e30 crank right into the motor housing? or does the crank hook up to a totally different part than the motor.

also if you have any good ideas on how to get the motor to work, let me know. it seems like it is spinning fast enough when i take it out of the housing and just let it run on its own, so i think its in the track that the window runs on. maybe there is a couple bad spots in it.

this is my ™

sounds like the window is binding in the track, The track may not be straight and the motor cant push it past the binding point. cheaper to go and find some new track I would think.

good luck

if i was just going to put a crank in it for now... will it just slide right into the hole on the side of the housing (it looks like there is a cap over the inside door panel where it could go) or are there other parts involved???
