I was wondering if anyones elses windows roll back halfway down when you roll the window up. If any clearification is needed, let me know.

have you checked your window to see if its slightly off the track ? normally the "window dance" is caused by the window not sitting on the track properly or off the track. to check you need to take the door skin off and unclip your speakers, and then take a good look at where the window is connected there should usually be bumper stops on the end, and the rounded end clips should be connected to the channel guides.

i have that problem. it sucks. but i think its just my motor-- cause the motor will do that even if not hooked up to the rest of the window arm... so if Furious's solution isnt right, mine may be.

on my 325is the drivers side starting doing same same thing about 6mo ago. Had it fixed at the dealer and they said it was a problem with the "anti trap" feature in the regulator. Whatever the trap feature is!! Now the fuc*&@ pass side is doing the same thing! I'm going to live with it for a while, due to $$$

isn't the anti-trap just a feature built into the window motor? if they say the anti-trap is buggering out, they may be implying you need a new motor.

still think that the plasic knob plug is not completely connected to the rail guide. i had the exact same problem , but it would only do it once in a while , then i fixed the knob that wasnt fully secure and ta-da it was fixed ..untill a year later it happened again... if you find this to be your problem use a good large set of clamps to pop it back in

You may be correct, becuase they did replace my regulator, motor, and switch. I don't know if I got sold on a few things or......? used:
