Window does not roll down (does not work at all)

For the last couple of months I had problem with passenger window. It use to slip off after rolling up half way. I use to roll up like an inch (had to do like 10-15 times to roll up completely). But few days back I tried to roll down the window and it doesnt work at all. The window is stuck and it doesnt do anything when I push the switch. I can feel that the motor is trying to pull it down and its drawing the juice since the headlights go a little dim when I push the window button.

Does anyone had this kind of situation before and fixed it ?

Thanks in advance
KK

pull the door skin off so you can see the inner working of the window mech. you want to make sure that its on its track, the motor spindle is still connected to the output shaft.

Thanks for your reply.

Are there any instructions anywhere on how to remove the door inner panel ?
I have a 1996 BMW 328is Coupe.

^^^They're Torx T20 screws. You also have to remove the inside door pull trim. To do this, lift the trim away from the door, and slide it forward towards the front of the car.
