Hello velazqj, sounds like maybe the window regulator is binding, or possibly the window motor itself. Try helping the window up by pulling up on the glass when closing and see if it closes fully. If you hear any funny grinding or crunching noises, the regulator has most likely failed. The regulator is a scissor design and the motor is directly bolted to it. I would recommend removing the door panel and having both inspected.

How do i replace the blower resistor on my 1996 BMW 318ti?

If you have a right hander it's on the passenger side.....or when you're sitting in the car, the left hand side.....Remove the side panel from under the dash.....That will uncover the center located heat exchange unit.....Look very close to the fire wall....Thats the plating separating the engine from the cabin.....What you're looking for, is a small unit which is fitted into the housing at the angled corner of the unit.....If memory serves, it's fitted in with a tongue at one side and a screw on the other....The electrical connection will guide you to the unit.....

keep cool....or warm
