    Is your problem solved? and how

  • Anonymous Mar 09, 2009

    Side mirrors quit working on 2004 X3. Have checked both fuses (57 & 31). Fuse 57 was good and fuse 31 was not there to begin with.

    Wondering if next step is to remove the small access panel on the bottom of each mirror.

    When you try to operate the driver's window in either direction, can you hear any sounds inside the door panel? It is possible that your master window switch has failed.

Hopefully by now you have resolved your problem but my truck had that problem and I had to replace the motor for the window controls.

SOURCE: window dropped into rear door panel. How do I remove the panel & repair

the window regulator has failed. the door panel has to be removed first which requires removing the trim piece that is on the grab handle (extremely hard to remove without breaking) there are three of four screws that hold the door panel on. once the door panel is off, the vapor barrier has to be removed. don't tear it, it is there for a reason to keep water out of the vehicle. make sure you reseal it properly with window weld. once the vapor barrier is removed you will need to unclip the window glass from the regulator. i typically will take and break the tab that holds the window. once the window is loose, move the glass all the way to the top of the door. now remove the regulator, swap the motor over, and reassembly. i would recommend taking the vehicle to a bmw dealership, around $650 for the complete repair and the dealership will stand behind their repairs

The rear passenger side window on my 2004 BMW X3 is not working - there is no sound when engaging the window switch. Is there a repair manual available to help me fix it?


Yes there are online manuals just Google it. First thing to try is

Get some electronic switch cleaner spray and use on the switch see if dirt and dust is an issue.

OR

Try changing the fuse that controls the window switch

If these dont work, could be the motor that drives the window or maybe a cable break which will be very hard to find and at that point its time for an auto electrician.

I read several posts where individuals were having almost the same problems. We checked the boot between the door and car sure enough there was a yellow wire broken. We fixed the wire and this fixed all the problems. Everything is working fine. Thanks your website is the best.

Side view mirror on my x3 either broke or became


I have never had the privelage to work on a BMW but I am assuming they are assembled in a similar manner to most other modern cars so if you look directly behind the mirror on the inside there should be a plastic cover which hides the mounting bolts for the mirror.
The cover should just unclip without too much pressure.
There will be some wires coming from the back of the mirror which will have to be removed before removing the mirror. You should see a plastic block which the wires go into, seperate the blocks, remove the bolts and remove the mirror.
I hope this has helped or is reasonably close to what I am telling you
