Cool E46 Rear Window Regulator Lumber Jack Quick Fix DIY (NO Duct Tape)

E46 Rear Window Regulator Lumber Jack Quick Fix DIY (NO Duct Tape)

If your regulator just failed immediately you will find that your window will not stay up unless you duct tape the hella-out of it. Even then your car will look like crap and someone can just pull your window and get into your car.

I'm waiting for a new regulator to come in and I need my window to stay up until then without use of tapes or duct tape.

I got this idea from Kurt V.

TOOLS:
Power drill
Screws

SUPPLIES:
1" thick/3-4" wide/no shorter than 10"/no longer than 15" lumbar scrap board or firm piece of plywood.

GOOD TO KNOW:
The space between the bottom of the glass window and bottom floor cavity inside the rear door is about 20" (20 inches).
The pictures should pretty much explain what I did...

At least they are easy to replace buddy. Let me know if you need any advice? I have done a few at the BMW dealer I work at.

E46 Window

Hey my rear window reg just broke and when I was looking for a new one I saw several ads for kits. How difficult is it to put just a kit in it. Ive done many for VW but not my E46.

Its easy as removing the door panel.
Once you know how to remove the door panel the rest is easy.
