TO REMOVE THE REAR DOOR PANEL YOU FIRST HAVE TO REMOVE THE PLUG FROM BEHIND THE DOOR HANDLE,
THEN REMOVE THE SCREW THAT IS BEHIND THE PLUG.
THEN YOU GO AROUND THE PERIMITER OF THE DOOR PANEL WITH A WEDGE AND GENTLY PRY THE PANEL OUT, IT IS HELD ON BY PUSH PINS FROM THE WOOD TRIM PANEL DOWN TO AND ALONG THE BOTTOM OF THE DOOR. ONCE ALLOF THESE ARE LOOSE THEN YOU HAVE TO LIFT THE PANEL UP OUT OF THE WINDOW SILL AND OVER THE DOOR LOCK IT SET INTO A SHORT CHANNEL AROUND THE FIRST SRCEW REMOVED ALSO
ONCE YOU GET IT UP AND LOOSE BE CAREFULL AS ALL THE POWER WINDOW SWITCH AND LIGHTS ARE THERE AND NEED TO BE DISCONNECTED.

ONCE HERE GOOD LUCK I BELIEVE THAT THE FRAME WORK INSIDE THE DOOR NEED TO BE REMOVED TO GET AT THE MECHANISIUM THAT OPERATES THE WINDOW.

YOU WILL FIND A PINK PLASTIC WHEEL BROKEN AND A SHORT CABLE THAT IS PART OF THE WINDO OPERATION,

THIS AS FAR AS I GOT BEFORE I GAVE UP

GOOD LUCK

How do I take apart my rear door of my 1998 BMW


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 have a multimeter you can go to the underside of the master panel in the drivers door and independently check the switches for voltage or with no power to the switch assembly check for continuity. Good place to start. If you get continuity to through the switch then you need to check power to the window actuators in the doors.

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.
