Question about 2000 BMW 3 Series

1 Answer

Windows are very slow in closing but fine going down

When putting the front windows up they start off fine then about a 1/4 of the way up they slow down and by the time they have reached half way stop.
I then have to release the button and push repeatedly until the window is fuilly closed, also the automatic function doesn't work when closing towards the top of the window.
I have spayed some grease into the seals and this makes it a lot better but this only works very short term.

Can anybody help?

Many Thanks

Stephen

I used to have the same problem wiv my 1994 3 Series Electric window and what I done was used the back of a plastic knife and cleaned out the seals (put the knife in the bottomom and took out a load of moss that had built up) Hope this helps

Drivers side window wont roll up all the way but goes down normally..


Get a can of spray silicone lubricant, and using the nozzle tube, spray down the front and rear guide tracks of the window. Run the window up and down a few times to distribute the lubricant, and the window should work fine.

Driver's side power window goes down, but not up.


hi, take the door panel off and check the window motor. sounds like the resistance of the window going back up is causing the motor to slow down and freeze up. higher than normal amperage is required to roll the window up, rather than down which had gravity helping it. unless there is a bad spot in the regulator(the part that controls the window going up and down). windows will freeze up when the internal brushes get worn, sitcky. check the motor by tapping on it with light force while rolling up when it gets to the sticking point. or help the motor by pushing pressure up on the window through the range. if it works okay like this, it's the window motor. but when you go to buy a part, you may find that the window motor maybe included only as assembly with regulator. check it out.

Front driver side window problem in ford edge


try this, it may or may not work. Using the window button, put the window down and continue to hold the down switch while you count to 10. Release the button. Next put the window up with the window button and continue to hold the button in the up position while you count to ten again. Then put the window down and hold the button and count to ten again. The window operates on current draw to know when it is closed. This should retrain the window to know its open and closed limits.
But once again this may not work but it is worth a try. Hope this helps.

WINDOW WILL NOT CLOSE


You have a very common problem. The window rubbers get dirty and that slows the operation down, the dirt acts like "brakes" on the glass. What I do is spray 100% silicone spray down each side of the window, and run it up and down several times, then repeat. I have had very good results doing this. There is no need to remove the door panels to perform this lubrication. Nor, is there any need to lube the actual window motor assembly. This should help you out. A FixYa rating for my assistance would be appreciated.
