I have a 98 528i. Today, I lowered rear passenger window down & now it won't
go back up. It now makes a 'clunking' noise (not every time) when I
push button. I know it is probably window motor/regulator...but does anyone have
a step by step instruction on how to remove door panel and manually raise window (may be a
couple weeks before I can get it repaired)
Thanks for any help,
more than likely the window regulator broke and will need to be replaced...also the window motor should be replaced if that is the case...best bet to get the window back up is to pull the door panel off and manually push the window back up and hold it in place with tape (tacky I know but commonly seen)
