my passenger side window quit a little while ago. i checked the switches and filed off the contacts and it still wouldnt work. then i took apart the door and took off the window motor and found it wasnt even spinning while it was still hooked up. i took a chance and ripped the motor apart and sure enough it was all corroded and just in shitty shape.

if you do end up needing a new motor just a quick note: the 84? to 87 uses a different motor than the e30's from 88-91. the threads are a little different. i already made that mistake.

this is my ™
