The drivers goes first because it is the most used and the symtoms were the following:
- the door panel moved when the windo was operated
- noises could be heard from inside the door
- the window wouldnt go up evenly the back used to come out of the channel slightly
then oneday nothing happpened...
To the other guys: Is this a common problem in the North America as well?
Firstly, thank you so much for the help that this forum has already provided me with! It has been a wealth of information. However, I have a problem now which I can't find an answer to.
I have a 318i (1992), and just today, my driver's side window has stopped working. All of the others are working fine, as is the sunroof. I have checked that all the wires under the switch are connected, and tried another switch that I know works, but everything there seems fine. I also took off the door trim, and checked for any loose wires there, but again, I found nothing.
If anyone could offer some suggestions as to what else this could be, it would be much appreciated!
I put my windows up, went into a shop, came back out and went to put them down, and the driver's one didn't go down. I can't think of anything thing that would have caused it. I did have the console apart last night, but like I said, I have checked all the wires, and everything is fine AND it was working fine this morning.
Thanks in advance,
