Rear window wont go down

I have an E34. Does anyone know the most common cause for my rear window not going down? I can start a process of elimination here.The only thread I found so far was for a series 3

coolvegase34 is an unknown quantity at this point
Let me guess, it is the right rear? I have the same problem on my e34. Mine sounds like the window is stuck. It wants to go down and the motor is working, I just think mine is off-kilter. In any case, it is probably the regulator. It is a common problem on bmw's. My indie shop wanted $50 just to take the panel off and find out what was wrong. Since my other 3 windows work, I just left it alone. I don't use the rear windows that much anyway. Let me know if this is the problem you are having and if you find any solutions.
