Have a 318ti Compact, the passenger side window rides out of the seal. I have heard this can be down to nylon runners, is this true?

Its easy enough to take the door panel off an have a look at the regulator and guides to see if theres a problem.

As for the nylon runners bit, there are 2 of them in the regulator that the window glass attaches to. Sometimes 1 or both of the ball mounts on the glass can pop out of the nylon blocks, causing your problem.

Had the same problem with the o/s/f window on my Compact recently.

Have a look n see if thas happened....
