I would say open the door panel and check it out, mine wasnt responding at all when i press the switch but i opened it and found that the plug connection was loose so it wasnt working, now it works fine and has no problmes, it can also be the regulator, but if it doesnt respond at all then it mite just be a loose connection.
Hope it helps
And by the way dont open the door panel if u dont have any spare plastic clips, otherwise the door panel is gonna be loose and shaking when u close the door and open it, till u order new ones.
the plastic sliders could go, but when they do your window should fall down because the window will fall off the rails, happened to me about 2 weeks ago in a parking lot when I was going into pep boys of all places lol
I think a loose connection, has it been slow also, not sure if the motors ever go on e36's.

Hey Preyash - in a bit more detail: Basically depressing the electric switch to either open or close the window does not work properly. If I press the switch such that I want to open the window - I have to press the switch down then release - then press etc.. about 15 times as it will only go down in short stages.
Usually either pressing the button down until the click will automatically lower the window right down to the bottom. Or pressing the switch down and keeping hold of it until it has lowered to what you want - then releasing will stop the window at that point. This does not happen for me anymore.
