Hello friends and gurus,


I need to replace the front driver side window motor assembly. I know how to get there. Here is the link
http://www.bmwe34.net/e34main/Maintenance/...DoorRemoval.htm
after doing above I see that the whole thing is riveted to the door(metal).

This is where I need your help and tips. I can drill/grind and take the rivets, unless there is a better way to do that. During installation can I use flat head bolts? or is there a better way to install that?

1995, 525I (E34)

Thanks and have a good day.

I didnt remember the e34 window regs being riveted...only the e36es but if that is the case i recommend 1st taking a small center punch and knocking the center of the rivet out, that is the hardest metal of the rivet. After that is out its easdy to drill through the rest of the rivet with a large drill bit. Best of luck

My electric window motor was bolted on (I've just had to take the pane off and re-attach the glass to the motor) so the only thing I would recommend is that when you replace the motor, use bolts and not rivets to secure it back in place. You should be able to get hold of some of the proper bolts if some e34s were bolted rather than riveted.

Good luck as it is one hell of a fiddly job!
