I'm having a problem with my power window at the driver's side of the car.
Normally on an 318is when you open the door, the window drops a half inch.
and when you close it it goes up again.
The problem is....mine stays up
Normal window operation is ok, i only have this problem when im opening the door.
Can somebody help me?
thanks in advance

Thank god I'm an atheďst

How is your drivers side window functioning are you having the same problem?
As for it not moving up as long as the window is rolling up and down properly youll be fine. I had to replace the unit on my 325is with that from a 318 and the only problem was that the windows wouldnt move up when i shut the door, like it use to.
As long as your car makes a seal and water cant leak in your fine!

Well after is spent a day with my bimmer today, something else cought my eye, the driver's side window functions like normal (the other side works perfect too)
but the window won't go down when i open the door and stays up when i close it (only on the driver's side)
There is no indication that it's even trying (no sounds)
The weird part is that it sometimes functions like normal used
I have found a link btw... when I lock my car from a distance and the blinking lights don't blink, the door doesn't function like normal.
when i lock the car and the lights blink the door functions normally.
(The car used to blink all the time)
Also there is a squeaking noise when i shut the door (maybe it needs some grease?)

weird problem

Thank god I'm an atheďst

I have solved the problem
I simply greased the squeaking door.
Also I put some contact spray on the joints. now it works like a charm again and doesn't sqeak anymore
Also the lights blink again when I remote lock the door.
Thanks for your help.
