Chances are you are going to have to replace the motor in that door. the quick and easy way is to replace the entire assembly which includes the motor and the track. If you are handy enough to remove the interior door panel and remove the old assembly you can certainly install the new one.

BMW 1996 328i E36 cnvertible Driver side window will not go down and back up when door is opened and then closed? It did this once before but started working but now it has started again.


micro switch may have failed. have a very close look in the door latch fixed to the car...there should be a very small square pressable switch.. open the door and press your finger inside the latch against the little button, the window should drop and raise. If you dont have one there its on the inside of the door lock mechanism.

Fuses no. 7 & 37 on my 318is K-reg Bmw keep MELTING.


you have to figure out where there is a short in your wiring--follow wires, look for broken, missing insulation--if it started in lights, look there first maybe. Also check the connections of plugs. Good luck it may take some searching.

The drivers side window on my mini one has stopped working, When i press the button to lower it i can hear a faint clicking sound comming from inside the door panel.


Went onto a mini site and according to the members on there its a common problem with the mini and one way of fixing it believe it or not is just above the door speaker? give it a bang, i thought threre's know way that will work but hey it doesn't cost anything does it, so i gave it a bang and it worked. An owner who thought that the motor had gone on his mini bought one, but before he had it fitted he thought that he would give this method a try and 12 monthes later it is still working.

When the same thing happened on my Mini Cooper (2001), I had to have the window motor replaced (cost approx £250).

My drivers side electric window won't work


Hi Hawkeye1973

The first thing you should do is swap the passenger switch in place of the drivers switch and then see if the window now works. If so then you need a new drivers side switch. It may be clicking but it may not be working.

If it still doesn't work then you need to get your hands on a volt meter and get back to me.

You need to remove the drivers door panel and investigate the window mechanism, it sounds asthough its sticking.

Very best regards
