I had the same problem on the rear door of my 1998 528i and it was the door actuator that had gone bad. I had to take the rear seat out to get the door panel off. Once I had the door panel off it was not that difficult to replace the door actuator.

the motor isn't bad. it doesn't get enough use to go bad. The clip holding the cable that makes the window go up and down broke.
google: window regulator repair clip 1997 bmw 528i. 97's and 98's are similar. 99 they changed them. they all break. they all break in the same place! It's the clip. 25 bucks order a repair kit from the guy. it's the same work as buying a $150 new regulator that will break again anyway

if you are referring to the rear end there are two Allen head plugs one right at the rear just above the bolts this is the fill plug and to the right and lower this is the drain plug. and if you are referring to Manual Trans there are two like bolt head plugs one directly on the bottom near the rear is the drain and 3 inches forward on the passenger side up 3 inches is the other which is the fill. it just needs filled until it runs out the top fill hole about 1.9 liters fluid type is MTF LT1
