Power window problems 86 325e

My driver window is the only one that is semi working right now and its wierd it will go down only half way if the door is closed and the passenger window doesnt work at all i heard it could just be the switches. What do you think?

Switches may be the problem. The passenger window in my E30 only works when it feels like it, driver side is fine.

thanks guys

thanks for the input ill try cleaning i just gotta figure out how to get them out with out damaging them i just hope its that because new motors are probably expensive. I talked to a friend and he said use a flat head but i dont know if that will damage anything.

might be switches, i cleaned some out on my 525I once and it works fine. i have had two motors go out in 1990 525I, one i fixed the drivers side<<very important. the other was the rear driver side.<<< not to worried about that. the 325E windows are going good. only thing is when i continue to roll up drivers side window when it is all the way up it continues to click over as if it wants to continue to go up further, even though thats not possible. im not complaining, cause it works and only happens when im rolling up the window and finally getting to the close position. just others that get in the car and start rolling it up tend to not know that. its an annoying clicking sound
