325ic Window Won't Auto Release

94 325i convertible passanger window does not release when the door the handles are pulled from inside or outside the car.
To open the door I have to push the window down button for a second to allow the door to open with out binding.
My drivers door window seems to work fine. When I open the door from inside or out the window opens about a 0.25 and seals back up when the door is closed. It appears the passenger window is being pushed closed further than it should be. I also have a hard top and the problem is the same for both the hard top and the convertible top.
It is hard to be a gentlemen and open the door for my wife of 25 years when I have to get in the drivers side first...let her window down a smidge and then go open her door. Lets just say it doesn't happen very often because of it.

Is there a switch procedure that needs to be done to tell the window what the limits are? Is there a micro-switch that may be out of adjustment? Please let it be something simple. I'm fearful the window is going to break one of these times.
I've searched many of the threads and have yet to find a problem like this one. If there is already a solution thread please point me in the right directions. Any help will be appriciated. Thanks bb

Maybe a look at realoem.com can help you locate the relays and switches that may need checking.

its a sticky switch located on the door latch striker ... open door and put finger down behind where your door latch would close onto your window will move 5 mil down
